We enjoyed so much our water villas, with every things you need and more, a TV set and high tech sound system hidden in the sofa, a sooo comfortable bed and a spacious bathroom with a view giving on the private swimming pool and the ocean. We did not feel very special or exclusive during the stay. The fact that... More

My wife and I were fortunate to stay on Baros for a week in April. Whatever the reviews, photos and brochures say it is even better in real life. You certainly would not be disappointed by any aspect of the island. The staff are incredibly friendly and personable without being too forward. They are always there when you need them.... More

I've been to the Maldives 14 times now over the years and for the last 5 years, only ever choose Baros. In my opinion, it has a better balance of natural beauty, intimacy, understated elegance, charm, with the occasional contemporary design element than Gili or Cocoa and is more reasonably priced. Hence, why it is my preferred choice out of... More

Acoomodation was perfect. Seafood buffet was terrific - plenty of lobster tails. We did our first ever dive here - the staff were amazing at teaching and making you feel at ease. Snorkelling was truely terrific. A 2 minute swim from the villa and you were at an amazing reef. I'd suggest having a beach villa rather than an overwater... More

When I first visited Baros in 1986(ish) the islnds was no more than a series of "huts with bathrooms" bordering the beach. Now, those huts have been updated to suit a different clientelle, and also a collection of "huts on stilts" have been built to increase the accommodation. OK, I know that progress is progress, but I can't help feeling... More
