Baros is a small island in the north Malé Atoll, just 25 minutes by speedboat from Malé International Airport. Arriving at Baros makes for a special sight — palm trees hang out over the white sandy beach, which in turn is lapped by the clear waters of a shallow lagoon. The island is surrounded by a house reef swarming with exotic fish. On the north, east and south sides, the reef is protected from the open sea by a barrier, while the west side is bordered by the lagoon.
Food and drink
Baros has a wide choice of restaurants, from casual eateries to fine dining.
The Lighthouse is a highlight of a stay at Baros; this overwater restaurant is renowned as one of the best in the Maldives, featuring an extensive wine cellar and serving modern Asian and Mediterranean cuisine. Upstairs from the restaurant, the Lighthouse Lounge is the perfect spot to enjoy a drink while listening to live jazz and watching baby sharks and rays cruise the lagoon.
Lime is an open-air pavilion on the edge of the lagoon that offers casual all-day dining, often with an Asian influence, but also encompassing hearty European dishes such as wiener schnitzel. There's also Cayenne Grill, which sits over the water and serves fabulous fresh grilled seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes, with a satay bar open during the day.
The resort welcomes children aged eight and over.
Please note that the balustrades on the decks of the Water Villa and Water Pool Villa are of a ladder-type design that may present a hazard to children under 12.
Baros was one of the original Maldives resorts, and it has plenty of character. On top of that, the service and standard of all of the facilities is excellent, making this a luxurious, friendly and great-value choice.
