The essence of the Maldives is defined at Baros Maldives. A small coral island ringed by golden sand and a thriving house reef set in a
shimmering blue lagoon. Lush with mature palm trees and brilliant tropical vegetation, this island is perfect for a peaceful vacation in
a private Beach or Water Villa of elegance and style.
The first sight of Baros Maldives is of the white pinnacle roof of the resort’s iconic Lighthouse. Palm-thatched roofs of the Guest Villas peek from verdant foliage. The wooden landing jetty leads to a grand gazebo housing the Welcome Pavilion.
All 75 Villas, beachside or overwater, are elegantly designed with sandstone and timber, have fine furnishings, large windows to let in natural light, and are timeless in ambience. As well as having a private veranda deck with sunloungers and a teak dining table for two, each Villa has a spacious, teak-floored bedroom featuring a king-sized bed with soft cotton sheets and plump pillows, as well as a vanity counter and a large sofa or daybed.
Located only 20 minutes by speedboat, northwest of the Malé International Airport, Baros Maldives is close enough for convenient transfers 24/7 but worlds away from day-to-day life. The Baros Maldives experience begins with a warm welcome outside the airport arrivals hall, by a resort host who accompanies guests to one of the Baros Maldives speedboats for a scenic cruise to the resort.
