For the 2019 festive season, the Blissful island of Baros Maldives transforms into a magical setting of Festive Escapades designed and curated especially for family, friends and couples.
In the spirit of gift-giving, guests are encouraged to give back to nature by sponsoring a frame of coral fragments to be planted in the Baros Coral Garden, a coral rejuvenation project maintained by our team of resident Marine Biologists. Guests who sponsor a coral frame will receive news of its growth every six months for two years, after which corals will encapsulate the frame. During the Festive Season, our resident Marine Biologist will conduct nature walks and presentations so guests can learn about the eco-systems of Baros (the mature gardens and the vibrant house-reef).
Since December is the time of celebration, our nightly Culinary Journey at Baros marks the occasion better than ever with Blissful escapades like dining on our Sandbank underneath a million stars or Jazz and Champagne Dinner. In the evenings, our Palm Garden is transformed into a festive atmosphere with live music and buffet dinners including ‘Grills of The World’ barbecue, ‘Tastes of Asia’, and the ‘Maldivian Experience’ buffet.
The iconic Lighthouse Restaurant curates special Gourmet Experiences for guests to celebrate romance and intimacy in a Blissful setting. The classic Lighthouse gastronomic experience shifts into a seven-course customised degustation menu, presenting classic fine-dining cuisine, delighting guests with new creations. Our Festive Gourmet Gala Dinners on Christmas and New Years eve are preceded by a sunset cocktail on our sandbank – exclusively for Lighthouse Guests.
Our award-winning culinary team demonstrate their skills as they share exclusive Baros recipes that guests can recreate at home to remind them of Blissful Baros.
There’s an enchanting melody to enjoy on the Baros Piano Deck – a symphony of fine cuisine served in exclusivity in the exotic setting of a deck in the middle of the beautiful Baros lagoon. This is a unique experience for guests to appreciate independence and tropical tranquillity at this festive time.
The Baros sandbank available for a couple to share a romantic meal, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner in privacy. Guests are invited to make this festive season unique and witness the Maldivian sunrise over a gourmet breakfast, savour succulent sushi with a picnic lunch, or enjoy a barbecue amid the rich hues of the Baros sunset while enjoying the most romantic dinner imaginable with a festive season menu that includes caviar, wagyu beef, lobster and wine.
Guests can enjoy Blissful freedom aboard our traditional sailing dhoni, Nooma, with a romantic cruise for a couple. Cruise the clear waters of the lagoon, where the colours of the evening sky dance on the waves. Enjoy champagne, canapés and the glorious Baros sunset from the comfort of your private sailing dhoni.
Bliss is perfect at our Serenity Spa, open every day during the festive season. Guests can choose from a bespoke selection of deeply soothing therapeutic and beautifying treatments in the Spa’s deluxe private suites. Especially for the Festive Season at Baros, the Spa offers “Serenity Immersion”, a therapy designed to enable couples to explore the far depths of utter relaxation together, with immersion in a ceremony that eases away all tensions, leaving both refreshed and rejuvenated.
The festive celebrations at Baros will be memorable, with the seasonal traditions of our annual Gala Dinner on 24 and 31 December and a Countdown gathering on the Lime Restaurant Deck to ring in the New Year of 2020 in Blissful Baros style.
Voted the Most Romantic Resort of the World by World Travel Awards in 2018 for six consecutive years, Baros is a small, lushly landscaped, private tropical island of 75 overwater and beachfront Villas and white sand beaches set in a turquoise lagoon, just 25 minutes by speedboat from the Maldives International Airport.
