Luxury bepoke holidays to Baros, Maldives

Baros Maldives is ringed by a house reef teeming with marine life, in the shimmering waters of a shallow lagoon. Elegant villas, created from timber and sandstone, are poised over the translucent lagoon or nestled discreetly among exotic blooms by the beach, ensuring perfect privacy and seclusion. The villas include relaxing daybeds, Lavazza espresso machines and a personal wine chiller with bottles selected on arrival. There are no motorised water sports close to the resort, nor a main pool area, thus evoking an atmosphere of pure tranquillity. One of the highlights of Baros is The Lighthouse, a contemporary fine dining restaurant showcasing the freshest seafood as well as modern fusion cuisine. An elegant Martini and Champagne bar offers 360-degree views of the ocean accompanied by the light sounds of jazz. There are also two other original dining venues and a cocktail bar. Baros Maldives is an excellent choice for snorkellers and divers who can enjoy a 'diving by design' in this amazing oceanographic environment. The dive team works closely with the resident Marine Biologist who conducts awareness presentations and leads snorkel and reef tours. Water sports include canoeing, catamaran sailing, windsurfing and even coral planting. The relaxing spa offers a wide variety of treatments and daily yoga classes are held in the air-conditioned overwater pavilion or on a private sand bank in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Alongside all the activities on the island, it is also possible to arrange excursions on a traditional dhoni or luxury motor yacht to include dolphin-spotting, fishing or just purely relaxing. The resort's 19-metre Dhoni offers the opportunity for romantic sunset dinners or private snorkelling trips for two. Another highlight is a private sandbank picnic. Baros Maldives was ranked amongst the top 10 luxury hotels of the world by Trip Advisor users in 2011. We agree this is a fabulous choice for romantic couples looking for plenty of activities to keep them occupied.

About Maldives

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Maldives is ideal for visitors looking for a relaxing and luxurious holiday in serene surroundings. The small republic of the Maldives is a luxury holiday destination that possesses some of the most astonishing and beautiful underwater life in the world. Consisting of over a thousand tiny coral islands, the Maldives is traditionally a fishing and trading nation which converted to Islam in the 12th century. Aware of its magnificent natural resources, in recent years the country has striven to maintain its traditional way of life and preserve the natural beauty of the islands whilst offering visitors a secluded and exclusive holiday experience. With turquoise seas, coral sand beaches, swaying palm trees and thatched huts and cottages, the Maldives represents for many the perfect picture of a typical deserted tropical island, a dream holiday destination offering peace and quiet with hotels which epitomise barefoot luxury. The Maldives hotels and island resorts we feature really are the very best. Whilst they all look idyllic, and clearly with the deluxe resorts we offer, you will receive luxurious accommodation and outstanding service, there are important distinctions that our sales team can draw your attention to: distance from Male and how you travel to the resort (speedboat, seaplane or domestic flight plus boat), the size of the island (some are very small and intimate, others are found on larger islands or connecting islands, beach or overwater villas (the overwater villas are usually, but not always, more expensive than beach villas) and the range of facilities (dining options, water sports and diving).

Highlights of the Maldives

For many, the Maldives offer some of the most fascinating underwater exploration available, from both snorkelling and diving. There are over a hundred different species of fish, from angelfish to flying fish, snapper and triggerfish, stingray and shark, as well as turtles and numerous corals of a multitude of colours. If your resort is near Malé then the capital is worth a brief visit with its mosques, traditional houses with rounded corners and tea shops with a selection of ‘short eats’ including rice pudding, curried fish cakes and small bananas.

Cultural highlights of the Maldives

Bodu beru traditional music and dance, traditional seating - the undholi (like a hammock) and the joli (a net seat hung from a wooden frame), local crafts including mats, lacquer work and jewellery, traditional dhoni boats.
