This is the most beautiful place I've ever been to. The views from Baros look just like the postcards you see of the Maldives. We came here for part of our honeymoon and stayed in both the beach and water villas, but preferred the beach villas in the end although both were beautiful. The beach villas have a unique outdoor bathroom and your own little beach area although people do walk across it.
The spa is excellent - the Baros massage (amazing!) and private yoga classes with Kumar helped make this a really special experience. We were also able to go snorkeling and scuba diving, and it was great that it was not overcrowded and also that there were no kids under 8.
The teppanyaki was the best meal there, and the seared tuna salad was also excellent. The breakfast buffet was good too, but the rest of the food was average - I had expected more in this area. Also as the previous reviewer mentioned, the resort seems to be a bit understaffed - at least at the restaurants and bar - and some are friendly but not all. Also, the Lighthouse (more exclusive) restaurant is not worth the extra cost - we had the tasting menu and two of my dishes were so salty I could barely eat them.
Overall it was a fabulous experience and we would definitely go back - I'd just pack some snacks next time.
