Baros is simply magnificent… A truly paradise on earth! Everything you see on their website is true. The bungalow, staff, the island itself surpasses all my expectations… The arrival went really smooth, just outside the airport the speed boat was waiting for us and it took no more than 20 min, it was a really comfortable ride with good service...

I have just booked Baros for the second year running, as part of next year's Maldives escape in March. I am already looking forward to it. We have visited the Maldives every year for the past twelve and tried eight or more resorts now. The reason for returning is simple: Baros has grasped the concept of exceptional service, without fakery...

It should not seem surprising when you search through photos of Baros that the "professional" pictures on Trip Advisor seem no different from the "traveller" photos. The beauty of this place is beyond what Photoshop can imagine. WEATHER: My husband and I stayed at Baros in April. If you're curious about the weather, this seemed to be a beautiful time...

This was our first time to the Maldives and we spent a lot of time deciding which island to visit. We chose Baros, largely due to extremely glorious reviews on TA - it after all consistently hovers between #1, #2 and #3 spot in all of the Maldives. Yes, the resort is absolutely 5* and there is nothing really wrong...
