Circled in a ten-minute stroll, this stunning, world-class island is where style meets simplicity.

With its dazzling sands and coral lagoon, Baros is possibly the most picture perfect of all of the Maldives islands. An intimate resort providing a complete luxury escape, its timeless, elegant facilities include the architecturally spectacular The Lighthouse restaurant with its tented white roof, and the exclusive Piano Deck offering yoga, massages or dinner on a deck isolated in the middle of a sparkling lagoon.

There’s a real focus here on the bespoke – as well as restaurant dining, there are private dining options available at any location of your choice; spa packages can be tailored to suit you; the diving is ‘by design’; and experiences range from personalised adventure to pure romance. A main swimming pool was added a few years ago – and in true Baros style, it's not your average pool. The overwater deck surrounding the Lime restaurant was extended to create a large overwater infinity pool; the perfect way to introduce a shared pool to this small island without compromising its natural, tranquil environment.

75 exquisite villas include extra touches such as wine chillers, yoga mats and dedicated villa hosts. The Deluxe Villas are individual thatched bungalows a few feet from the water’s edge, whilst Baros Villas have a four-poster bed and private sun deck overlooking the ocean. If you enjoy taking a dip in your own secluded pool, then it’s worth opting for one of the private pool villas. The Baros Suites are incredibly private.
