19 December 2021 | All Blogs, Destination, Experience

Are you dreaming of an island escape in a romantic overwater villa complete with days of castaway relaxation, crystal clear water, indulgent spa treatments and adventurous island hopping? Voted as the Best Honeymoon Resort by Elle Bridal Awards 2021, Baros is the perfect romantic haven.

We have put together 20 inspirational ideas for you to discover your island bliss.

1. Honeymoon in Paradise

Experience soulful moments, from couples’ spa rituals and sunset cruises to candlelight dinners on a castaway sand bank and tantalising cocktails under the stars.

2. Romantic Interlude

Baros is designed for couples, whether on honeymoon or simply embracing romance. Savour lazy days on the pool deck of your luxury beach villa designed to bring you closer. Celebrate your love affair with a memorable renewal of vows ceremony on the beach.

3. Indulgent Spa Massage

Connect with nature and the circle of life with a TheraNaka tri-scented massage. This therapeutic massage treatment, using lime infused shea butter, activates a sense of wellbeing, bringing you back to a state of serenity.

4. Floating on a Crystal Clear Lagoon

Dine on a wooden deck – shaped like a grand piano – floating on Baros’ lagoon, indigo water below and all around. Elegantly crafted, it’s the perfect platform to celebrate life’s memorable moments.

5. Nooma Dhoni Romance

With its traditionally crafted, curved prow, single vast sail, secluded sun deck, private lounge, and air-conditioned double bedroom, the 62ft Dhoni sailing boat Nooma is a perfect vessel of romance for sunset sailing, secret reef snorkelling and romantic dinner cruises just for two.

6. Learn to Scuba Dive

Our dive courses are done at a leisurely pace allowing you to experience the thrill of diving without feeling pressured. Feel the weightlessness of discovery underwater as you glide around our coral house reef.

7. Salute The Sun

Connect to the natural rhythm of the sea. Start your yoga journey or deepen your practice with daily yoga classes.

8. Discover An Exclusive Dive Site

Baari Thila, a submerged coral tower is an underwater photographer’s dream. Only residents of Baros can dive this site where you’ll find sharks and rays sleeping in the sand, barracudas and eagle rays in the deeper waters and epic schools of oriental sweetlips.

9. Dive with Manta Rays

The Maldives is one of a few rare places in the world where you can dive with manta rays. You will know you’re experiencing something special as these massive, gentle creatures glide effortlessly around you. During the southwest monsoon (May to November) is the best time to see manta rays in the North Malé Atoll.

10. Fishing Excursions

From big game fishing excursions to night fishing under the stars, fishing is ranked as one of the top experiences in the Maldives. Reel in barracuda, snappers, and even Marlin in December and try your hand at traditional Maldivian fishing using a hand line with raw fish as bait.

11. Explore Baros Island at a Cruisy Pace

Lapped by crystal clear turquoise waters, Baros island is perfect for kayaking in a glass bottom boat, stand-up paddle boarding and windsurfing. Cruise around the island, soak up the sun and take in the unusual kaleidoscopic tropical fish nestling on the reef below.

12. Snorkel With A Marine Biologist

Join in on our coral restoration activities and accompany our Marine Biologist on a house reef tour. Plant a coral cube and learn more about restoring seagrass beds and protecting reef residents such as turtles, blacktip sharks, rays and an abundance of other tropical fish.

13. Island Hopping

Set out on a day of adventure and snorkelling aboard a luxury charter yacht. Baros’ Serenity yacht is luxury personified with a private saloon, cabin for two and friendly experienced crew.

14. Foodie Haven

Epicureans will be inspired by the island’s natural abundance of seafood and trio of restaurants at Baros: Alfresco à la carte dining at Cayenne Grill, international and local cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner at Lime and fine dining at The Lighthouse. Each restaurant offers a different view of paradise and a diverse culinary journey.

15. Night Diving

Explore the house reef or Black Coral reef at night. Observe multi-coloured corals and night predators on the hunt for food. If you’re lucky, you’ll witness phosphorescent plankton light up the ocean with its blue bioluminescent effect.

16. Dine on a Deserted Island Sandbank

Indulge in a memorable culinary experience on a secluded sandbank with a discreet chef and steward on hand to cater to you every need. Savour a sunrise breakfast, a sushi picnic or a fish barbecue as the amber sun slips below the horizon.

17. Diving By Design

Imagine personalised, à la carte diving. With 30 dive sites and one ancient shipwreck within easy reach of Baros, our bespoke “Diving by Design” adventure captures your diving dreams and meets your experience.

18. Private Dolphin Cruise

Imagine the excitement of watching a host of dolphins leaping from the sea and spinning at the prow. Dolphins tend to have a regular daily routine, feeding offshore at night, coming into the atolls in the early morning, and leaving again for the open ocean in the late afternoon. Their dependable schedule makes it easy to track their progress.

19. Moveable Feast

Wherever the mood takes you, you get to choose where you’d like to dine on Baros island. Whether you choose to enjoy an extravagant breakfast, a picnic lunch, a candlelit dinner in your villa, on the beach under the stars or at a table set under the shady palm canopy along the shoreline, at Baros it’s a movable feast.

20. Island Bliss

Whether you stay over the water, in a beach villa, suite or The Residence, Baros is an iconic island hideaway designed for couples to enjoy freedom of space with everything you could possibly need.
