In detail

Gloriously peaceful, the sandstone and timber beach villas at Baros Maldives are sheltered by large banana leaves and palms while the water villas have a private wooden deck for sunbathing and steps for dipping into the lagoon. Sleek teak flooring, a comfy sofa and designer lighting make these villas extra special.

Wander down the path from your villa past clumps of flowering hibiscus and bougainvillea towards a gleaming white sandy beach set under the deepest blue cloudless sky. Diving in the coral reef just off the Baros Maldives island is a must with its variety of colourful fish, turtles, rays and coral.

Rooms

Stay in elegance in individual Villas (75 units) created from timber and sandstone, poised and peaceful over a translucent lagoon, or nestled discreetly among exotic blooms by the beach. Revel in romantic privacy; blissful seclusion where noise and others, exasperation and hassles, are a world away. The Essence of the Maldives is defined at Baros Maldives.

Spa

The Spa has recently enjoyed a refreshing change with regards to it’s looks, feel and atmosphere. Entering the Spa Reception, one walks through intricately carved doors, onto stepping stones, embedded within a pond. On either side one’s eyes rest on a beautifully designed garden while gentle sounds of trickling water indicate a place of wellbeing. The spacious, open-air reception sala present a friendly welcome to every guest. Four couple treatment rooms are reachable by walking over a beautiful wooden decking, fringed by lush greenery. Upon entering the treatment rooms, which enjoy an exclusive feel with their private steam room, one is welcomed by a warm and elegant touch of serenity. Two treatment beds in each room promise complete bliss for couples which are encouraged to enjoy the private Spa bath and rain shower, set in a lush tropical garden. At night time diffused lighting and several candles in glass houses guide one back towards the reception and relaxation area. Guests enjoy a hot or cold ginger tea after their treatment and while relaxing on an elegant lounger, enjoy a beautiful garden view to re-join reality. Treatments are designed for pure relaxation while powerful botanical ingredients deliver the promised results. Guests can choose from a wide variety of massages, facials, body exfoliations and wraps and knowledgeable staff are always present to recommend treatment programmes for specific concerns. A great way to wellbeing would be daily Yoga classes which are held in the air conditioned Yoga Pavilion, on decks above the crystal clear ocean waters or even on a sandbank in the middle of nowhere.
