EXCURSIONS & ESCAPES
Guests have several opportunities to experience the essence of the Maldives beyond the resort’s shores. As well as pre-planned excursions for groups, the Guest Experiences Team can design individual excursions by privately-chartered boat. Whatever guests want to do, the Guest Experiences Team will create the perfect memorable experience to make guests’ dreams come true.
This is the Baros Maldives traditional handcrafted Maldivian 19m-long sailing dhoni providing an unusual combination of luxury and adventure. Below deck is a cabin with a lounge area, air-conditioned bedroom and shower; on deck the bow is for sunbathing. The crew wear traditional sarongs and a steward is on board to serve refreshments. Nooma can be chartered for Sunset Sailing, snorkelling and diving around the “Black Coral Reef,” and for a romantic dinner cruise
For a stylish seaborne experience, the exclusive 16m-long Princess Motor Yacht, Serenity, can be chartered for cruising in ultimate luxury. With a private saloon, cabin for two and discreet crew, a cruise on Serenity is a gracious way to discover the attractions of the atoll. Easy-to-arrange cruises include a private sunset cruise to see dolphins and private half-day or full day excursions in the atoll.
Baros Maldives experiences include Big Game Fishing and “Fishing by Twilight” with a “Catch your own dinner” plan. Guests can also learn the traditional Maldivian fishing method using a hand line and especially hand-tied lures on a “Hand Line Trolling at Dawn” experience. And for the perfect way to see corals and fish without getting wet, a cruise by a glass bottom boat that can easily navigate above the reef is possible.
Discovery experiences are arranged with a Half Day Island Discovery Excursion by luxury speedboat to an island resort before visiting a local island, and there is also a Male’ Sightseeing and Shopping excursion to experience the history and culture of the capital. The height of sightseeing is a Seaplane Photoflight to view the splendour of the Maldives and its atolls from the sky. For lovers, and lovers of the wild, the Sunset Dolphin Cruise with Champagne & Canapés is an exciting experience, observing leaping dolphins while enjoying a glass of champagne, canapés, mineral water and soft drinks served on board.
