This independent boutique hotel is situated on its own coral island, a 25-minute speedboat ride from the Maldives International Airport. It’s ideal for travelers wanting to add an educational element to their island getaways, and one of the highlights of a stay here is the opportunity to participate in some of the on-site Marine Centre's educational programs. Along with a variety of biologist-led snorkeling tours, including nighttime "glow-in-the-dark snorkeling," the center offers regular hour-long presentations on marine biology as well as nature walks that focus on the flora and fauna found around the property. The resort is surrounded by its own living reef, and guests can easily snorkel out to it straight from the resort. Baros Maldives also offers romantic private dining experiences, including sunset meals aboard a traditional sailboat as well as dinners for two on a private sandbank or on a sheltered deck in the middle of the sea.

Romantic sunset dinner
Private dinner on secluded Indian Ocean sandbank - sunset to the west, moon rising in the east.... Baros provided seclusion and luxury for a romantic wedding anniversary celebration. Baros resort was beautifully located with warm waters, an abundance of marine life, friendly staff and excellent range of restaurant choices. I hope to return again one day to do it all over again.
A beautiful adult resort only 20 minutes from Male airport. Discreet but attentive staff. Warm crystal clear waters with an abundance of marine life. A range of activities for both the active and the relaxed traveller. Romance, gourmet food, sunsets. Deluxe villas are beachfront with access to your own patch of beach. Of course there are over water villas and a range of premium pool villas, but the beach is amazing.
