We have just returned from an amazing 2 weeks at Baros to celebrate a special birthday. From the moment we arrived at the airport, to the moment we were escorted all the way through to the departure desk, we cannot fault the impeccable service from the Baros team. This was our third trip to the Maldives - all have been amazing, but now that we have found Baros I don't think we need to go anywhere else!

We can't mention every member of staff (although they are all amazing!) - but particular thanks go to Shuhan, Nahid, Mulan, Paula, Lily, Fahud, Dipan, Hameed and Jose the gardener (yes, even the gardener was an absolute delight every morning, showing us different flowers and pointing out the resident fruit bats :)).

We stayed in a water villa - spacious room, comfortable bed and luxurious bathroom. The deck was fabulously appointed with comfortable sunbeds and a glorious day bed which was ideal for a lazy afternoon reading books. Although we were also busy spotting the numerous friendly sharks (including an 8ft nurse shark!) and fish swimming past the balcony.

The food in all three restaurants is first class. The Lighthouse lobster bisque not to be missed!

The child-free policy makes this the most relaxing, romantic and peaceful holiday resort you could wish for.

Now I just need to work out how soon we can go back!

(Oh, I should also mention, I was treated like royalty on my birthday with special little treats throughout the day!).

Room Tip: We stayed in 308 water villa - in our opinion one of the best spots to be - secluded, leeward side of the island

We have just returned from 9 days staying at Baros. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very special and nothing was too much trouble. Our water villa was wonderful and Gulguna our villa hostess made sure our stay was a very special experience for both of us.
The restaurants at Baros are superb and all the staff are delightful. Special thanks to Mulan, Swati and Paula whose smiling faces and friendly conversation made breakfast and dinner thoroughly enjoyable.
The spa at Baros is excellent, the tranquil atmosphere makes relaxation easy and the treatments are superb, not forgetting the wonderful ginger tea!
We were very sad to leave but out departure was made very smooth and the staff at Baros ensured that we spent the minimum amount of time hanging around the airport.
Thanks to everyone at Baros for ensuring that we had a wonderful break.

Room Tip: The water villas are superb

Beautiful island, perfect for our honeymoon over Christmas and New Year.
Attentive, friendly service throughout our stay. We were made to feel very special by all the staff. We even got to see Jimmy's Happy Feet on the dance floor at New Year. We loved the sparkly dance floor and all the festive lights. Great bands made for great dancing, playing so many of our requests in their own unique styles.
Great variety of delicious yet healthy food at all of the restaurants.
Fantastic snorkelling on the house reef and it was great to be able to help with the conservation by taking part in the coral gardening.
Our stay in a Water Villa was perfect for what we wanted with such easy access down the steps out to the reef.
Currently working out how soon we return.

Recently returned from our January / February 2 week stay on Baros. This is our 6th trip in as many years, so I trust for those reading, this says much in itself.
The Island is well maintained, the accommodation is excellent, and the food is fresh and superb. You can even catch your own fish and have it served within a couple of hours to you!! Well, you can TRY and catch fish!!
Baros is not for those who want a lively nightlife, but if you want a very relaxed peaceful holiday, with snorkelling, diving and the gym for those so inclined, then this is for you.
For those thinking you would be bored....I had the same view before our first trip in 2010, which we did for just 7 nights. Our subsequent trips went to 10, 12 and for the last 3 years 14 nights.
You just need to let the relaxation and purpose of Baros wash over you.
Shuhan and his management team are friendly, approachable and will address any issue you may have. It's not even just about issues, in 2014 we made a suggestion which has been since implemented for everyone, so we know they listen.
Although there are many members of staff who stand out for their service, it would be unfair to pick out individuals, as Baros functions as a team and there are many back room maintenance staff who you never meet that deserve credit too.
We will definitely be back for our 7th trip.
As general guidance, we go at this time of year as it avoids the rainy season towards the middle of the year. In January, there is a steady breeze onshore from the East which keeps the temperature feeling comfortable (I think around 32C), but can make the sea a bit choppy. However we are advised in March the wind drops and it get's very hot, so it depends on your preference.
Flight to Male on BA is direct, and the Baros boat crews can get you to Baros in 25 minutes approx., once you have cleared the airport.
If you are a romantic, you have to do the Sandbank dining experience. Not cheap, but I doubt you will find too many places in the world where you can do that, and if you are lucky enough to get a good sunset and a moonrise (we have once), you will remember it forever.

Room Tip: Depends on your preference, we prefer a beach villa as it has....well beach. You may prefer the Water Villa's on stilts over the lagoon. As already stated, the Eastern side of the Island benefits from an onshore breeze in January / February, the West Side can be very hot and still. All villas have central a/c

This was our first visit to Baros but will definitely not be our last!! From the moment we arrived at the airport to our return every member of staff made us feel welcome and special.
The food quality is excellent and the service was consistently first class with every member of staff making sure that your every need is attended to in a pleasant and unobtrusive manner.
This was a totally relaxing holiday which surpassed our expectations.
Well done everyone at Baros and thank you,

Room Tip: we had a water villa with pool room 312 which had uninterrupted views and wonderful sunsets
