We stayed a week at Baros in June 2013 as part of a 2 week honeymoon and absolutely loved it! We had a villa on the beach and found this to be very secluded and luxurious. The resort has recently won an award for most romantic resort in the world, and we can see why! It really did feel like there were very few people on the island and were on our own for much of the day. The house reef as others have said is excellent and significantly better than the one at Gili Lankanfushi where we went the following week. During our snorkles we saw turtles several times and sharks every time, as well as lion fish, an octopus, moray eels and countless fish!
The food was excellent, with a fantastic breakfast meaning we usually weren’t hungry until dinner. The Lighthouse restaurant deserved a special mention for the quality of food (remember to book!) but our favourite dish was the simple spicy beef at Lime! Service was also perfect, and we were made to feel very welcome from start to finish.
Despite it being the rainy season, it rained very little during our stay though we’d heard the week before hadn’t been great. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone, particularly for a honeymoon.
