Baros Overview


It has been more than 46 years since Baros first welcomed visitors to its shores. It was a time when locals travelled from island to island on wooden dhoni sailboats when the Maldives communicated with the world by Morse code. Much has changed since then, but more has stayed the same. Baros remains a place of astonishing natural beauty, as magical as ever.

One of the first resorts to open in Maldives, Baros sets the standard to which other Maldives Luxury Resorts aspire. Over the decades, we've learned that authentic luxury isn't a gimmick, it's the sum of many different, carefully chosen parts. The services we offer here are honed by years of experience and by seeing what works – what people love and come back for time and again.

Life at Baros has always been a fulfilment of harmony. Our collection of handcrafted beachfront and overwater villas are built from timber and sandstone, a perfect match for our naturally beautiful surrounds. To help preserve our island, we've worked to protect the natural environment, from the house reef fringing the island to its natural jungle heart. In order to ensure the privacy of our guests we have prohibited the use of Drones on the island.

Beginning with the coral-walled, fan-cooled cabanas of the original resort, Baros has become an icon of luxury in the Maldives. Our villas are designed to cocoon you in comfort, furnished with care and with a host of indulgent features for you to enjoy.

Through each chapter of the Baros story we have strived to offer the highest standard of Maldivian hospitality to our guests. From this heartfelt service to the ingredients in our dishes, to the artwork on the walls, to the pillows on your bed – these details, perfected, are what makes Baros a legend. Our mission is to see it evolve and flourish even more in the years to come.
