The Ultimate Overwater Dining Experiences at Baros

23 November 2021 | All Blogs, Destination, Experience

Silk-soft, sugar-white sands, coconut palms that sway in the gentle breeze and aqua Indian Ocean waters that reach as far as the eye can see — Baros is the definition of paradise.

For discerning gourmands in search of a memorable meal, the overwater culinary experiences at Baros are sure to delight the senses. Interested in finding out more? Here’s where keen adventurers can merge their love of the water with their fervour for food:

1. The Lighthouse Restaurant

Baros flagship Lighthouse Restaurant, perched over the scintillating lagoon, is the place for your overwater culinary experience. Boasting a carefully crafted menu that centres on delectable seafood and a unique “Maldivian French fusion”, guests can relish fine dining dishes that draw on local as well as Asian and Mediterranean flavours. The onsite wine cellar is home to some of the best wines from across the globe, there to enhance each dish even further.

This iconic restaurant is a stellar choice for a romantic sunset followed by dinner under the stars, a glass of wine in hand. Indulge in some of the signature dishes, from the fabled Cognac Flambéed Lobster Bisque and Yellowfin Tuna “Rossini” to the Seared Medallions of 300 Day Grain Fed Black Angus Beef Fillet. No matter which dish you choose, however, your meal here is sure to live on in your memory long after the last bite.

2. The Piano Deck

A unique and private overwater dining experience can be enjoyed atop Baros grand piano-shaped wooden deck. Built on stilts in the heart of the Baros lagoon itself, The Piano Deck is the ideal option for special occasions.

Let our chef delight you and your beloved with a sumptuous gourmet meal as you relish the endless views of turquoise and the soothing sounds of the water caressing the elevated deck. Sip on your favourite beverage, savour the exotic flavours of the dishes and embrace sightings of surprise visitors in the waters that surround the deck (which could include anything from turtles and rays to vivid reef fish).

3. Aboard Nooma

Embark on a culinary journey of a lifetime aboard Baros Nooma or “Blue Flower”. Spanning 62ft, this gorgeous sailing boat, with its enormous sail, palm-leaved roof and graceful prow has been modelled on a traditional Maldivian dhoni and enhanced with modern comforts.

Imagine it for a moment: the water tinged by the pink-purple hues of sunset, dolphins play in the wake and a personal steward is serving you and your loved one delicious, unique dishes. You sip on your Champagne and breathe in the fresh, salty air…bliss. One thing is for sure – this is an overwater dining experience unlike any other.

4. Floating breakfasts

For those who would prefer an immersive take on the overwater dining concept, a floating breakfast served in the privacy of your Water Pool Villa — elevated over the shimmering lagoon — is a must.

An experience that is as satisfying as it is Instagram-worthy — does it get any better than a custom-created Champagne breakfast enjoyed in the privacy of your infinity pool overlooking the mesmerising Indian Ocean? We don’t think so.

Equal parts unforgettable and romantic, these overwater dining experiences are not to be missed. What’s more, experiencing any of them will also give you undeniable bragging rights of having enjoyed something so uniquely Maldivian at what has just been named “The Indian Ocean’s Most Romantic Resort” by the World Travel Awards for the 9th year in a row.
