Background on us: We have now been to the Maldives four times, staying at Kuramathi (March 2014 & March 2015), Kandolhu and Vilamendhoo (March 2016), and this trip was split between Baros and Milaidhoo (March 2017). We enjoy snorkelling, peace and quiet, and good food while on holiday, and are not interested in activities or entertainment, and also not too picky when it comes to things like sea walls, powder soft sand, or big lagoons. Service wise we like people to be polite and friendly, but do not want over bearing or pretentious â€˜5 starâ€™ service. We have always thought that Baros is a resort that we would really like, as it fits our needs perfectly, but I must admit that I can see why others would not warm to it as much as we did. There are undoubtedly negatives to Baros, and how much you like or love the resort will depend on how important those negatives are for you personally. Our priorities are a good reef (fish life over coral), a good choice of a la carte dining, good food, good friendly (not over the top or ostentatious) service, and a few little luxuries (wi-fi, TV, detached rooms, etc). Baros ticks all of those boxes very nicely, and so for us this is an easy 5 star rating. So quickly lets look at those negatives and get them out of the way. Firstly, the proximity to Male will not be great for those looking for that â€˜desert islandâ€™ feeling. Although it isnâ€™t particularly close to Male (no noise, no planes flying over, etc) the views from the South and East of the island are definitely compromised by both Male and the shipping traffic from/ to it. From the North and West of the island these views are not an issue, and instead you get very nice views out to the horizon, except for the next negative pointâ€¦ Sea Walls. They bother some people immensely while others really donâ€™t care, weâ€™re probably somewhere in the middle to be honest. Again though they can be avoided, either by choosing a WV, or by choosing a BV on the West of the island, as these look out onto the lagoon and are sea wall free. Baros also â€˜suffersâ€™ from a series of groynes on the beaches, which again are not the most attractive of views and mean that you donâ€™t get to look along a long stretch of beach at any point. Finally, the quality of the beach (in terms of size) and softness of the sand are both very variable. In places on the South and East of the island there are very nice stretches of beaches and soft sand, also with the bonus of a nice lagoon area for swimming. Other stretches have very little beach and the sand is very coarse, and we found the West of the island to be the worst for this, with the North side being rather variable. So what you may have noticed from the above is that with any room choice there are compromises to be made (with the exception of the WVs). Rooms on the South and East of the island have the best beaches and lagoon for swimming, but suffer from sea walls and views out at Male. Villas on the North have patchy beaches and sea walls but have great views out to the horizon. Villas on the West have no sea walls to look out to and no views of Male, but have by far the worst beaches, and also will have peripheral views of the Marine centre and arrival jetties. Pick your poison. So on to the positives! Being only a 20 minute speedboat from Male is definitely a big positive. We arrived at the resort at probably the same time as we would have arrived at the seaplane lounge if we were going to a resort reached by seaplane, so that gains you between one and two hours extra on the day of arrival, and the same on the day of departure. Our entry level room (Deluxe Villa 112) was very nice, a large and spacious bedroom with separate seating area, dressing area, a gorgeous outside bathroom with double sinks and outdoor shower, and also a nice decking area with table and chairs and also a sofa. In room amenities are very good, with a well stocked mini bar, complementary tea and Nespresso, a safe, and very good wi-fi. The air conditioning was excellent and kept the room lovely and cool. A slight negative for us was that the vegetation between villas was rather sparse and so privacy felt a little lacking at times, and the beach area at the bottom of our â€˜gardenâ€™ was very close by to our neighbours, so if we were all out sunbathing at the same time then there was a distinct lack of personal space. Part of the problem is that the â€˜garden areaâ€™ is completely in the shade, so you have to go to the beach to sunbathe, whereas when we were at Kandolhu you could sunbathe in the â€˜gardenâ€™ and it felt much more private. The service at Baros is excellent across the board. Waiters and bar staff are attentive and friendly, and the room hosts are always available if you need something. If we were being picky we would say that we didnâ€™t seem to have much conversation with the waiters as we had at Kandolhu and Milaidhoo, but that is very minor, and certainly the staff in the Lighthouse were much more chatty. Food is very good, and we were especially impressed with breakfast, which has a very impressive buffet selection and also a very good a la carte menu. Bonus points for perfectly cooked poached eggs every time, and also for the excellent hash browns and chocolate croissants. They lose a point from me for the overly crispy (American style) bacon though! Champagne being available at breakfast was a nice touch, and the espresso based coffees were very good. We only ate lunch once as we were on B&B, but enjoyed the menu selection in Lime when we did. Dinner wise we definitely found Cayenne to be our favourite restaurant and had three very good meals there. At Cayenne you order your main course from the menu and the starters are from the complementary salad bar. We personally loved the sushi and other asian fare for starters, but must say that if we would have stayed on for a second week then we may have found the starter/ salad selection rather repetitive, and if you werenâ€™t a lover of sushi or sashimi then in general Iâ€™m not sure that the selection would have been that great. Personally I think that overall I would have preferred a dedicated starter menu, but cost wise this definitely worked out better for us. Lime offers a very varied menu which will have something for everyone, although we found the food to be a bit hit and miss to be honest. The Asian dishes were very good (bento box, mezze, pad thai, nasi goreng, etc), but some of the European style dishes werenâ€™t great, and we actually found the Lobster Spaghetti dish to be rather unpleasant. We both had curry one night and they were good, but not quite as good as we have had elsewhere in the Maldives (Kuramathi and Milaidhoo had better Maldivian Curries, and Kandolhu and Milaidhoo better Sri Lankan Curries). The Lighthouse Restaurant is a fine dining restaurant with a lovely overwater setting. My wife and I slightly disagreed about the food, with her being a big fan of all of her dishes, while I thought that mine didnâ€™t quite live up to the very high standard that they were trying to set. I think that I just made bad menu choices though, and Iâ€™m sure that if we would have gone back and ordered something different I would have been more impressed. It is a lovely romantic setting, and definitely something that you should try at least once during your stay. The real highlight (above ground) for us was the Lighthouse Bar, and we spent many hours there enjoying the cocktails and canopes while watching the sunsets and the sharks hunting in the water below. The drinks were sensibly priced for the Maldives, and the fact that you got free canopes, nuts and crisps made them even better value. We both agreed that it was our favourite bar in the Maldives, and a real highlight of the Baros experience. We were also pleasantly surprised by the wine list, and found several very drinkable options at sensible prices ($50- $70++ a bottle). When we did push the boat out a little at The Lighthouse a bottle of Cloudy Bay was â€˜onlyâ€™ $94++, whereas on other wine lists in the Maldives Iâ€™ve seen that as high as $150- $180++. We were also glad that Baros didnâ€™t try to â€˜nickel and dimeâ€™ us in other areas. Water in the room was freely available and more was always available for free if we wanted it. Nespresso coffee and tea was free, and the mini bar was very reasonably priced with soft drinks being only $5. Water with meals was also very reasonable at $5 for 1,500ml. While we were there we contacted the Marine Centre to ask about a Manta Trip, but were told that this was not a regularly scheduled trip and would depend on other guests. Luckily for us there were three other couples interested and we had a great trip, eventually seeing four mantas. I say eventually because we only saw the last three due to the staff being willing to extend the length of the trip by an extra hour, so we were very appreciative of that. Finally the big highlight for us - the reef. We are definitely fish fans rather than coral fans, and would probably also say that we like the big fish more than we like the smaller ones, so Barosâ€™ reef was right up our street. Lots of big adult Black Tip Sharks, some big White Tip Sharks, lots of Trevally, turtles on every snorkel (7 different individuals), and a real bonus was quite a few octopus sightings. The reef for us was easily spit into 3 sections; the area from the WVs down to the pipe, the area from the pipe down to the Cayenne restaurant, and then the area out from The Lighthouse restaurant and out by the â€˜wreckâ€™. The first two are pretty standard drop offs, and then the latter is an area that stretches away from the island. Personally we found the stretch up by the WVs to be rather dull, the second stretch to be much better (more interesting coral formations and more variety of fish), and then the section by The Lighthouse to be the real star. My experience swimming with six circling adult black tips for about 10 minutes was definitely one of my all time snorkelling highlights. Sadly the coral has been affected by bleaching as it has across the Maldives, but there are still some healthy coral patches and plenty of healthy anemones. The reef doesnâ€™t look as â€˜deadâ€™ as some other resort reefs that we have seen, but that is probably because the coral coverage was not as impressive to start with. We really enjoyed our snorkelling at Baros and were also lucky enough to have perfect conditions with hardly any currents or water choppiness to worry about. Nice touches - Nice beach bag and flip flops on arrival, parting gift, large refillable dispensers in the shower rather than small plastic bottles, cold towels on arrival at all bars and restaurants. Pet Peeves - The TV and AV equipment in the room were rather ugly and stood out somewhat, looking rather cheap to be honest. The Marine Centre wanted to charge $35 for a USB stick with (some not overly impressive) photos taken by the staff during our Manta Trip - given that it was a $500 trip we would have expected those to be thrown in for free and it rather grated that they werenâ€™t. Overall - A lovely resort that suits our requirements for a Maldives resort almost 100%. Weâ€™d definitely return again and can definitely see why it is such a TripAdvisor favourite. 9.5/10
"A fabulous place to stay"
We didn't really know what to expect when we landed at Male, although we were looking for somewhere luxurious, comfortable and relaxing with good snorkelling and beautiful scenery and sunsets to photograph. It turned out to be all of the above, and more. The water villa was outstanding (although for a small supplement we would have preferred one with its own plunge pool). The service was personable, happy and all of the staff that we met seemed genuinely pleased to be working there and looking after the guests. The food was delicious, the snorkelling enchanting and probably the most amazing thing was that there were over 100 guests staying on the island, but you never seemed to bump into them very much. It really did feel like a special and exclusive place to stay. It is also a short and very fast boat ride from the airport, so the transfers are quick and efficient. There are of course a few negatives. For us, the biggest of these was the price of every supplementary service or drink, which is eye-watering. OK the sterling exchange rate is poor at the moment, and of course you expect to pay more in a place that is this small and this luxurious. But I have to say that I would have preferred the cost of the stay to have accommodated some of this premium, rather than itemising it on the extras; it left a bit of a sour taste in our mouths, and meant that we did not do as many of the activities on offer as we might have done. The other small negative was the view over the water towards the 'industrial island' with its plume of smoke from the incineration plant. It's not close, and you can't hear it or smell it - but it is there. This is more a matter of choosing your villa well. But on balance we could not have asked for a more perfect island to stay at. Even 'Sparky' the turtle made an appearance on the reef to help us feel at home. I would unequivocally return to Baros, particularly having seen the size of some of the other islands with many more guest rooms. It is a special, and very, very well run hotel. A place of peace and tranquility.
"Heaven on hearth "
What a fabulous place! We've had an amazing week! Baros Maldives is a small but luxurious resort where you can make all your dreams come true. Their house reef is amazing, full of colour and live, the best snorkelling! But you can also dive there or further away thanks to their great diving centre. The service is impecable! The staff is always smiling and ready to help you with anything you may need. The food is simply great and very varied. We've had the best curries and the freshest fish! But there's options to suit everyone's taste. And also the breakfast is extraordinary! If you want to relax, disconnect and simply enjoy live, Baros is the place to go! Thank you to everyone that made our stay unforgettable: the ladies at breakfast always with their welcoming smile, the guys at the bar, the diving team, and very specially Shariu who took care of us and made sure our stay was simply perfect, to all the Barona team, thank you!
We had an amazing experience. Service was flawless, breakfast with free flow prosseco was delicious, house reef was fun and beautiful. The over water bungalows are a dream! Our villa host Naja was super nice and helped make our wedding anniversary extra special. There was one managers reception at the beach with food and drinks at no extra cost. The hotel is conveniently located just a boat ride away from the airport. Overall: highly recommended, an experience that can't be missed!
We recently spent a blissful week at Baros. Although the island isn't big, we didn't feel the need to do anything off the island as there was always something to keep us entertained, in particular we had a great time snorkelling every day as there was always something new to see. The staff were all lovely and helpful and made sure we were well looked after and any issues were rectified promptly. We were, however, surprised sunscreen wasn't provided on the island as we have experienced at other resort islands. Also the quality of the vegan menu wasn't at the standard we would have expected from a 5 star resort, although it didn't affect our stay and we would happily recommend Baros to our friends and family.
