Anas, together with the friendly and attentive Baros team, ensured that we had a fabulous and memorable stay. A beautiful place; excellent food; delightful spa; and the snorkelling on the reef was amazing. A truly blissful holiday, relaxing on a most glorious island.

Hotel's Favorite
We had the most amazing honeymoon experience at Baros in the Maldives. From the moment we arrived, the staff made us feel so welcome and special, including greeting us by name as we stepped off the boat from the airport. We spent our first few nights in a deluxe villa on the beach, which was wonderful and the views from bed to the beach and the ocean were delightful. We were then extremely fortunate to receive an upgrade to a water villa with pool by the manager who wanted to make our honeymoon experience extra special. The room was spacious and airy, with incredible views and Anas (our assigned guest concierge/butler) ensured we had the sunset view. It was wonderful to be able to watch the sunset every evening and made our stay that much more romantic. From our over water villa, we had the most incredible views of the ocean and could easily go snorkeling right from our deck. Baros offers amazing snorkeling opportunities and provides masks, fins and snorkels free of charge. The reefs are teeming with marine life, and we had the chance to see a wide variety of marine life, including fish, octopuses, rays, sharks and sea turtles. The hotel has a resident marine biologist and dive team, and we also enjoyed the walk around the hotel grounds with the biologist who explained various uses and interesting facts about the local flora. The service we received across the board was top-notch. In particular, our butler, Anas, went above and beyond to make sure our stay was unforgettable. He messaged us via Whatsapp a few days before we arrived to introduce himself and get us ready for our stay, and he arranged various surprises for us, including a romantic dinner on the beach that was simply magical, and other treats which were much appreciated. As mentioned, the service throughout our stay was excellent, with all the staff incredibly friendly, responsive, helpful and welcoming and with lots of little extras included which really added to the overall experience. The resort is well-equipped for watersports (stand up paddle boards, wind surfing, kayaking etc) which are available to rent at extra charge. One morning we went on a big game fishing excursion, where we caught a sailfish, and saw dolphins and short-fin pilot whales. These experiences were truly unforgettable and made our honeymoon even more special. We also made regular use of the gym, which was well-equipped (especially for a hotel gym) and had everything we needed for a good workout. The grounds of the resort were very well-kept, with lush vegetation and beautiful landscaping all around. The ambience, especially in the evening, is stunning. The breakfast was amazing, with a range of a la carte healthy options (e.g., coconut acai bowls, omelettes etc) alongside the buffet of hot food, fresh bread/pastries, juices, cold meats and cheese, sushi, fresh fruit, etc. Generally we were extremely impressed by the quality of the food throughout our stay, especially the buffet served on Easter Sunday where we enjoyed the freshest seafood and various other delicacies. The Lighthouse Restaurant has two tasting menus which are on a par with some of the best restaurants in London. One point to note is that (in keeping with a luxury hotel) the food and drink is expensive (even for those used to London prices), but you must also consider the stunning location, often eating beside the Indian Ocean with beautiful surrounds and excellent service. We knew to expect this from the Maldives, and it did not detract from our overall enjoyment. Overall, we cannot recommend Baros hotel in the Maldives enough. The resort is absolutely stunning, the service is exceptional, and the experiences we had were unforgettable. Thank you to the entire team at Baros for making our honeymoon so incredibly special.

The most amazing resort! The staff was fantastic. The food was superb. We absolutely loved our pool villa. Shout out to Sita our butler for being at our beck and call and keeping us in sparkling water and cookies :) We very much enjoyed our dinner at Lighthouse as well as the over the top Valentines Day Buffet at Cayenne. Our daily breakfast and dinners at Lime were top notch...especially with Abudullah looking out for us and making sure that my husband's eggs benedict were perfect every day! The daily breakfast menu includes both made to order items as well as a magnificent buffet with fresh fruit, breads and pastries, dairy items, sushi, meats and cheeses, nuts and honey, plus all the Maldivian favorites. We actually took advantage of the gym just so we could enjoy all the wonderful food! The island is a treasure with well established trees and plants, a house reef to snorkel and lots of beach to walk. Just the right size, not too big and not too small. Our transfers to and from Male were seamless. Cannot say enough good things about this special place.

Baros is a dream if your a looking for a small island with a great reef and amazing food. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have ever experienced - Wow! You find everything here. The house reef is just amazing! I think it is one of the nicest I have ever seen in the Maldives. The dive center people are very friendly. Thanks 'Sugar' for going on a snorkel trip with us and thanks a lot for the nice underwater pictures! 'Peter' at the Cayenne Grill is amazing. He is funny, well trained and we will never forget his amazing /charming service! Thank you. It was an amazing stay on Baros! Kim & Fabian

This was our third stay and it was every bit as good as previous ones. A relatively small exclusive resort a short speed boat trip away with exceptional service creating a tranquil escape. The house reef provided excellent diving and we regularly spotted turtles and abundant marine life. All the staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. The Spa treatments were also first rate. Highly recommended.
