These Suites are designed to provide a haven of seclusion, specially created to maintain the utmost privacy and calm with classic design. Guests can enjoy the freedom of space as well as the inspiration of tropical tranquillity and a chance to relax in solitude.
Water Pool Villas
Fanning out over the lagoon, these overwater retreats offer the perfect balance of privacy and access. Each Villa has a private pool and a daybed on a sun-soaked veranda, with a stairway descending to pristine waters below.
Baros Pool Villas
A path through tropical foliage leads from each Baros Pool Villa to pristine sands and a crystal-clear lagoon. All come with canopied daybeds and infinity-edged private plunge pools offering breathtaking ocean views. White sands, azure waters and the colourful wonders of the house reef are just metres away.
These wood-and-thatch Villas appear to float on Baros’ magical waters. Relax on a spacious outdoor deck, or descend from the private stairs directly into the crystal-clear water of the lagoon.
The scent of mirihi blossoms wafts across the timber decks of these secluded Villas. King-size four-poster beds provide a perfect night’s sleep, while on the beach, your own thatched parasol awaits, a few short steps from the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean.
Nestled under the cooling canopy of Baros’ lush foliage, Deluxe Villas feature outdoor decks only metres from the beach. Behind the Villa is your private garden, complete with daybeds and an outdoor shower framed by tropical fronds.
The Lighthouse Restaurant
A legendary name in the Maldives, The Lighthouse shines like a beacon as you approach Baros by speedboat. Superb cuisine prepared by Baros’ master chefs is served in an atmosphere of relaxed refinement. The resident Baros sommelier is ready to provide the perfect wine-pairing suggestions.
Cayenne Grill offers an intimate al fresco dining experience with a hint of island flavour in a thatched gazebo above the lagoon. Sample perfectly marbled wagyu beef and young New Zealand lamb accompanied by a succulent selection of fresh lobster, prawns, crab and fish.
À la carte dining in an atmosphere of informal sophistication, Lime specialises in local dishes and fresh seafood. Enjoy international specialties, delicious curries or wood-fired pizza for lunch, at sunset or under the stars.
The Lighthouse Lounge
A soothing setting for sipping Champagne as the sun melts below the horizon. The upstairs lounge at The Lighthouse offers views of bewitching beauty, accompanied by delectable wines, cocktails and canapés.
An intimate and peaceful wooden cabana nestled in a garden of coconut palms. Snack and sway the day away in a hammock as the lagoon sparkles in the sun. Relax with a drink in the evening as soft music adds romance to the balmy night air.
Dine anywhere on Baros, on request. Whether an intimate overwater dinner for two on the purpose-built Piano Deck, or a barbecue on the beach, the dedicated Baros dining team can arrange it. A private dinner for two on a secluded sandbank is one of the most romantic experiences imaginable. The personalised menu is prepared and served by a private chef and waiter.
Baros diving is simply legendary – we’re home to one of the Maldives’ original dive centres, first opened in 1979. This highly regarded PADI Five Star Gold Palm Dive Centre offers small group sessions and one-on-one attention.
Baros Marine Centre
From snorkelling excursions to sponsoring your own coral frames – our Marine Center is a hub of all things oceanic, with a Marine Biologist on-site available with expert advice. As well as diving, other exciting aquatic experiences can be arranged: Water skiing, Transparent canoeing, Wakeboarding, Fun-tube riding, Windsurfing, and Catamaran sailing.
