Upon flying into the Maldives as the plane was descending you begin to see the incredible beauty of islands which was below us. The Euphoria and High had finally arrived after a build up of 4 months in waiting.
Upon arriving we were whisked away like Royalty by Baros Staff on one of their launches. After about 20 minutes or so of taking in Male and surrounding Islands there in front of us appeared Baros..
After such anticipation myself and my wife were transfixed with the beauty that was ahead of us.
After docking we were greeted by Shuan the Resort Manager and his staff.
As soon as we stepped onto the Pier the experience began to be personalized. It felt like you were being welcomed to your own private island. The beauty and tranquility of Baros was all ours for the 8 nights we were staying there. This was the feeling created by the staff.
We were in a Deluxe Beach Villa and were upgraded to a Baros Beach Villa. A stunning room with great comfort, faciities and accessories to go with.
You open you back door and within 10 metres lies the serene waters of the Indian Ocean which contribute to making Baros the special place it is. You have your own beach chairs and umbrella within two metres from the shoreline.
Before reading my review, you would have read so many more awesome reviews about the food, restaurants and overall hospitality which are extremely accurate of what awaits you by going to this island which is Heaven. There is no way you will or can be disappointed with the Food & Beverage. So i will not go into this area further. If you are or you do have issues in this area... then god help you.
What makes Baros even more special than any where i have been to around the globe is the attention to detail in all areas along with making everyday of your stay an absolute pleasure. The facilities, activities and tours they offer are outstanding.
If you want to go that little bit further and create a surreal atmosphere and occassion for yourself and your spouse/partner they can even do this to an amazing a degree.
Picture being on a Maldivian Cultural Boat or on a little patch of sand in the middle of the Indian Ocean having dinner whilst taking in the breathtaking views and sunset, along with being provided service which is generally reserved for Kings and Queens. This what Baros does and can do for any of their guests.This is one of many little things Baros offers which makes Baros so special.
For the 8 days we were there we forgot what the real world was. We were in the world of Baros and one we did not want to leave.... how could you possibly want to leave this Island Heaven.
Baros is second to none in providing you the ultimate relaxing holiday and forgetting your day to day activities back home.
This was truely an amazing experience that Baros provided us and it all comes down to Shuan and his staff. How they go out of their way or assist you or attend to a request or greet you or interact with you would leave a lot of top class destinations in the world left behind. They create a dream that you do not want to come out off. Sadly you do...
i would like to give a special thank you to Nitin in the Lighthouse Restaurant & Bar. This individual provided service second to none and his style, charisma and personality made each night at this bar memorable. A really nice guy.
Oh.. by the way the Lighthouse Bar if you cut it out and put in other Areas or Harbours around the world the waiting list to get in would be months. That's how good it is......
After all this wonderful experience it was time to leave... Our moods became sombre and as we were on our way back to the airport by launch. I looked back and said " Baros now that i have found you i will never forget you. I will be back to continue my journey with you."
Ladies and Gentleman there are no words that can do justice for Baros in what it is and what it provides and offers. You have to experience it first hand to understand the effect it has on you.
You will not want to leave.. that i promise you.
Thank you Baros for giving me an experience that i will treasure forever. The beauty is now i have found you... i will not let you go..
