Baros Island Resort is another Maldives Island we have been to. It receives some of the highest praise in the Maldives. Baros is a multi-award winning resort with fiercely loyal clientele that return again and again. Style, elegance, simplicity and excellence all molded into a little piece of paradise which you can circle in ten minutes. Also, for a World Class luxury resort, Baros is surprisingly good value for money.
The Baros Island Resort is located in the North Male Atoll in the Maldives approximately 25 minutes speedboat ride from the airport.
Baros Maldives offers 75 exquisite villas each with air conditioning and ceiling fans, a DVD/CD Player/Flat-screen TV/iPod docking station, a King-size bed, an open bathroom with indoor shower & bathtub & outdoor shower in private garden, an Espresso machine & tea/coffee facilities and a Mini-bar.

The bathroom, with a stand-alone tub, extends into a sandstone-walled flower garden that includes an indulgent waterfall shower.
Baros Villa (103 sqm) – Situated on a blissfully sun-blessed beach, each Baros Villa is discreetly secluded by tropical vegetation, with a wooden deck perfect for lounging just a pace or two from the lagoon. The ingeniously designed interior has a King-size bed embraced by curtains and louvered blinds on either side to let in sunlight, as well as an exotic bathroom with a contemporary bathtub and a romantic rain shower in a secret garden.
Water Villas (92 sqm) – The Water Villas at Baros are placed along a crescent-shaped boardwalk curving over the lagoon just seconds from the beach.

Baros Pool Villa (134 sqm) – Each Villa stands alone in a secluded tropical glade with a private swimming pool of pure translucence, just a few steps away from the turquoise lagoon lazily lapping against the shore. The four-poster bed sitting deep within the Villa looks out over the veranda and sundeck to the pool. There is also a daybed in the shade on the veranda and a table on the wooden deck for in-Villa dining under the stars. Natural light floods the Villa’s beautiful interior, and the gorgeously contemporary bathroom has a discreet outdoor garden rain shower. The television is concealed in an ottoman, wine is in the chiller, and a dedicated resort host can be summoned at any time.
Baros Residence (268 sqm) – Surrounded by green foliage and bird-of-paradise blossoms, here hides an intimate place to stay, to share secrets, and to relax.
