Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2017 via mobile

My wife and I loved Baros. When magazines show azure seas and beautiful sand that you can't believe are real? That.

The team was warm and not fussy, making us feel cared for. Many thanks to everyone who looked after us. The attention was above and beyond what we have experienced in other luxury resorts we have been lucky enough to stay in.

Where our review can be of most help is in comparing the villas on the island to the over-water ones as the hotel was kind enough to let us stay in both. Unique upsides of on land - beach, covered veranda (which is really lovely to sit under for the odd tropical shower), the beautiful outside shower itself, proximity to amenities (although to be fair nothing is too far away). Upsides of over-water - slightly better living space (although both lovely) even more privacy, direct access via deck steps to snorkelling, 180 sea view, infinity pool, wonderful deck including draped lounger, fewer mosquitos. On our days in the over water room we hardly left, there was no need to.

There has been much mention of the bleaching of the reef and there is no doubt that there has been a great deal of damage however the fish remain as colourful as ever and the black and white tip reef sharks come and eye you in a friendly way as you snorkel.

Thanks again. We will be saving our pennies to return and it is difficult to think how Baros could be beaten.

Food quality, outstanding service, beautiful reef, cleanliness, everything is meticulously planned for for the guests. Special thanks to our villa host Asim and the knowledgeable and helpful staff at the marine centre, especially Andrea, Nina and Shuga. Baros is indeed the epitome of service excellence.

We stayed 10 nights here, and it was quite simply amazing. All the team go out of their way to make your stay superb.
Our villas were wonderful and it really felt like paradise.
The snorkeling was great, so wonderful having a reef just here to enjoy. The snorkeling equipment is provided for you and they even lent me prescription snorkel so I could see without my glasses.
I cant recommend this highly enough.

Room Tip: Request a water villa which faces the sunset

We stayed for 5 nights in villa 313 (over water) and it was an amazing experience. I think what I appreciated most about Baros is how effectively the staff balances meeting the needs of guests, but not being over the top and pestering. They've found the perfect balance. I felt every single need was met, but never felt bothered. The villa is gorgeous, spacious, and actually more private than I expected.

The food was delicious - whether it was breakfast in our villa or enjoying lunch/dinner in the restaurants on the island - we were never disappointed.

The snorkeling is fantastic. The only thing better is the diving! Our dive master, Ahmed, made our experience fun, educational, and safe. I just can't say enough positives about Ahmed and the entire dive team.

While this vacation isn't for everyone (it can be quite expensive), in the wise words of Ferris Bueller, "if you have the means, I highly recommend it." ;-)

From start to finish our holiday was exceptional. We were greeted by the resort manager upon arrival and the wonderful service continued for our whole stay. The island staff made sure our visit was relaxed and quiet, nothing was too much trouble. This was an extraordinary holiday experience and we would recommend Baros to anyone visiting the Maldives looking for that picture perfect island. This place is absolutely outstanding.
