The islands are grouped in 26 natural atolls, ring-like coral formations enclosing a massive central lagoon, which gives the Maldives its unique paradise-like appearance.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


At Baros you will find service dedicated to the desires of each guest, architecture that celebrates and preserves the beauty of nature, and luxurious, intimate villas created with natural materials such as wood, stone and coconut thatch.

Baros was chosen to be a special resort because it was small, unspoilt and idyllically located in the centre of the atoll, with its own reef encircling a pristine lagoon and untouched sandy shores. To conserve the island's intrinsic beauty, the Maldivian family who leased it from the government and still operate it today, resolved to keep Baros pure.

Accommodation at first consisted of 56 beds in round cabanas with conical-shaped palm thatched roofs and rough coral walls. There was no air-conditioning. By 1983 the resort had expanded to 100 beds but even then only some of the rooms were air-conditioned. Ten years later 12 wooden, thatched octagonal cottages built on columns over the lagoon were added.

Because of the inherent hospitality of Maldivians, from its opening the resort gained a reputation for its friendly informality and caring, personalised service. Over four decades this has been enhanced with attention to detail, leading to Baros Maldives becoming the hallmark of top quality Maldivian holiday hospitality.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Amazing room with a private pool on the beach, great buffet breakfast and beautiful, relaxing spa with a variety of soothing and therapeutic treatments. We snorkeled at night and also during the day and saw reef sharks, octopus and amazing reef fish. Small gift shop and various off and on island activities or a perfect place to lay in a hammock, read, sleep and listen to the waves. There are various birds and flying foxes, as well as dolphins to welcome you to your home away from home!

Review:   Best resort and holiday I have ever had. I am not a beach holiday person as prefer much more active holidays but it was our honeymoon and it didn't disappoint. The staff are fantastic - every single element was perfect. Will be going back one day for sure!

Review:   Heaven on Earth is the best way to describe Baros. From the amenities, the staff, atmosphere... Everything about it makes you forget the real world. Couldn't have picked a better place for our honeymoon.
