Another perfect week
We have just returned from an excellent one week stay on Baros, our second visit. It was very relaxing after a hectic holiday season. The attention to detail and level of personal service in the resort were outstanding - the staff were all without exception friendly and polite, and obviously very well trained while still being quite natural and relaxed. We had a basic (deluxe) villa, opening onto the beach with direct access to the sea and the reef. We ate in Lime on four nights and in the Lighthouse on three nights - all enjoyable, but the highlights were probably the various flambéed courses served in the Lighthouse. The service in the bar, where we were regular visitors, was exceptionally friendly and efficient, and we enjoyed the live music there on three nights. The snorkelling was also great - lots of interesting and colourful reef fish, too many shark sightings to count, and a few turtle encounters. We hope to be back next year!
Worth Every Penny
I had really high expectations for Baros given the price point and all of the positive reviews, and even still, it exceeded my expectations. We picked Baros given its close proximity to the airport, as we only had a short amount of time in the Maldives. Once we arrived, we were greeted by name and handed glasses of champagne. We were given a tour of the island as our luggage was dropped off at our room. We chose the base-level room (room 105), as I preferred a beach front room with direct access to the reef. The room and the beach off the deck felt private, with foliage blocking the view of other rooms, but allowed access to wonderful snorkeling. We were able to enjoy the sunrise from our own private little beach. Everything in our room was lovely, but we especially enjoyed the outdoor shower, the large and comfortable bed, the outdoor deck and lounge chairs, and the Nespresso coffee provided in the room. We had sunset drinks at the Lighthouse lounge. Drinks were always accompanied with a plate of light appetizers, which was a pleasant surprise and were very tasty. The included breakfast was such a treat, with fresh sushi, an assortment of cheese and charcuterie, pastries, and fresh juices and prosecco. Our dedicated staff person, Rita, was extremely helpful. I told her in passing that we had gotten sunburned while snorkeling, and she brought us fresh-cut aloe from the garden along with calamine lotion. Baros was also able to accommodate a late check-out for us, given our flight out didn't take off until almost 9pm. Baros is truly a dream. I'm so glad I scoured TripAdvisor for hours to find the best place to spend our money in the Maldives. 10/10 would recommend Baros.
Beautiful Island, Amazing Staff
We returned to Baros after our first visit 10 years ago. It was wonderful then and even better now. Accomodation and food were amazing, the snorkelling (day and night), the dolphin watching, the beach and facilities are all outstanding. The biggest compliment we have though is for the staff. They are just wonderful people - friendly, happy, lots of fun and extremely helpful. There's is nothing to fault on Baros!
The Beauty of the Maldives
My wife and I just returned from an incredible vacation in which we visited Baros Island in the Maldives. Upon exiting customs at the airport in Male, we were met by representatives of the resort and ushered unto a waiting boat that transported us to the island. Unlike some islands in the Maldives, so far from the airport a seaplane is necessary, Baros isn't far (only about 20 minutes by boat). As we arrived at the island, we were greeted by a team of personnel, who welcomed us with warm greetings, cool towels, and champagne. Maashiq, our personal concierge, oversaw everything for us, while being there to share interesting info about the island. He is EXCELLENT! Our luggage was taken from the boat and placed in our villa before we even arrived. The island itself is beautiful and peaceful. The food is excellent and all the accommodations are spectacular. We recommend the water villa with private pool. We give Baros the highest recommendation possible and we plan to return...
The conversation with each other was not very good, but the time I spent with you at Baros was fantastic and happy. our villa 318 was very beautiful and easy excess to snorkeling and very good. many fish
