Baros - Description
Baros is a very special island, in a quiet sort of way. Arrivals are greeted with a glass of champagne in the welcome pavilion engulfed by tall, slender palm trees. Accommodation is of a high, classic standard, whilst retaining an element of natural style. Dining is pure delight in magical settings. Few things in life rival sunset cocktails and canapés on the elevated Lighthouse terrace followed by alfresco dinner featuring lobster bisque prepared at the table, whilst you marvel at the passing reef sharks. Baros is a place for couples to relax, enjoy some of life’s luxuries and explore the marine life on the fabulous house reef.
Located in North Male Atoll, Baros is very convenient for those wishing to maximise their time in resort as it is a mere 25 minutes by luxury speedboat from the airport. It is a small, quiet resort appealing mainly to Honeymooners and discerning couples – children under eight are not permitted on the island. There are good beaches around most of the island apart from the areas around where the restaurants have been sensibly located. The island interior is particularly beautiful with a huge variety of tropical plants in a landscaped setting. A sandy path winds through the foliage around the perimeter of the island and provides access to all of the beach villas. It takes around 10 minutes to walk around the whole island which measures approximately 350 metres x 380 metres.
