Our holiday at Baros in the Maldives was amazing - we could fill this review with superlatives but will just say that whenever we were asked by one of the staff if everything was ok, our standard response was "everything is perfect." And it was. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday. The staff went above and beyond expectations. We celebrated our anniversary with a candlelit beach dinner. There were little surprises everywhere--birthday cakes, champagne, and treats left in the room each evening. The staff was so kind and attentive that we really should be mentioning everyone by name. A special mention goes to our villa host Maashiq, who welcomed us after the speedboat (airport transfer), and then catered to our every need thereafter (he was only a WhatsApp message away); Kamal, an excellent Hatha instructor who led us through our early morning seaside yoga sessions; and, Jayadi, the executive chef, who along with his team, provided exceptional cuisine by day and night. As if the food and service aren’t enticing enough: Baros has one of the best house reefs in the Maldives. We could step out of our Beach villa straight into the Indian Ocean and in minutes we were swimming with black tip, white tip and nurse sharks, sea turtles, giant stingrays, eagle rays, and as many colorful fish as an episode of Blue Planet. It was truly magical. The resort also felt incredibly safe. All staff wore masks and the resort never felt overcrowded. Most everything is outdoors, there's a doctor on-site and quarantine facilities if needed (although staff told me that they have not had any cases). Hand sanitizer is readily available. I would recommend booking directly with the resort. They not only offered me the best deal, they included extras like a free speedboat transfer from the airport, a couples massage, a sunset cruise, a bottle of champagne on arrival, as well as early and late checkout.

Had an amazing experience - Azzam and the rest of the staff are very attentive from the moment you land to the departure gate! Easy access to some amazing reef and sealife (including sharks and rays) literally in your backyard. Definitely a once in a life time experience!

It is difficult to know where to start just how perfect Baros is. From the moment we landed, to the last check-in from Male we were pampered. Every detail was carefully coordinated. I go to Maldives 6 times per year, visited about 54 resorts so far that is why I can judge objectively. At first, I would like to thank to Mr. Afrah - reservations manager. Very important part of the team. You can write to him as many times as you need and he will always be very willing and accommodating. He resolves all requirements as quickly as possible. It is a completely different approach than in other luxury resorts. What really makes the Baros though is the staff, the level of service combined with the genuine warmth and friendliness of the staff is truly remarkable. Every single person of the team is so commited to make the stay a real unforgettable event. All at the highest standards you would expect. The team on Baros is the best I have ever seen in Maldives. The villas are fabulous, absolutely comfortable. Nothing is missing at all. A special mention to our villa host Ole. I want to give a huge shoutout to her. Ole went over and beyond to make the most memorable holiday. We already had many villa hosts in the Malivas, but none of them were so professional. Ole is the most professional in every way. We will certainly see this girl in the future as the manager some of a resort. I am sure with it! Food was absolutely great!!! Fresh, varied, delicious and perfectly presented! The quality and choice food is a stonishingly high. Executive chef Mr. Jayadi Suwito is very proffesional in every respect and is incredibly talented. Was very often around and making sure everything was great. Many thanks to the weiter Mr. Mord. He was looking after us perfectly and he is real proffessional in every respect. One of the best waiters who ever served us in the Maldives. The house reef is very nice full life for the snorkelling. We saw every time we went snorkeling very friendly turtles, eagl rays, sting rays, sharks, lobsters etc. Go to the dive center. There is Mr. Usann, he is very friendly and willing. A really nice guy. Don't miss Fluo night snorkeling - an unforgettable moments. Mr. Ibrahim Shijah - Resort Manager is the people in the right position. He is not just a manager like in other luxury resorts. You can meet him several times during the day taking care about runing of the resort. He solves every little things for the guests to be absolutely setisfied. Reading reviews where everything is perfect can seem unbelievable but Baros island really is heaven on earth! Our thanks to all the team and our best wishes to them.

My fiance and I spent our first holiday ever together at Baros and we absolutely loved it! The island is surrounded by the most exquisite reef. We spent most of our time snorkeling, but also did a scuba, private dinner on an island and the dolphin tour - each experience was spellbinding. The service was spectacular, courteous & friendly staff, great food and the right amount of privacy. We stayed in both the over water bungalow and pool villa - hard to choose, but if you have to pick one, do pick the former.
