I fully endorse all the good things that other reviewers have posted: the transfer from the airport, the welcome, the villa, the staff, the restaurants, the food, the snorkelling, the spa - all absolutely wonderful. The staff go the extra mile, anticipate one's needs and even provide lovely surprises, our villa host Areef was super. I had asked for tea...

We loved Baros. We have now visited the Maldives several times, our 'home' is and probably always will be Kurumba but we are trying different resorts also each visit. Baros is owned by the same group as Kurumba and is best described as its smaller, more sophisticated sister. The similarity between the islands is plain to see, the staff in...

Another wonderful February week in Baros. The welcome back for our third visit was great after a long flight and as always the staff were excellent. As returning guests we really appreciated the 'extras' that we received: the champagne party, the champagne and the complimentary Dolphin Trip. Thanks again to our villa host, Azam, and especially to the Manager, Mustaphafeez,...

Small and perfectly formed resort.... first class service from well trained and enthusistic staff, and first rate facilities, especially snorkelling the house reef, which was just outstanding. The resort marine centre were particularly helpful in advising on snorkelling and diving.... Three excellent restaurants, but the highlight restaurant event of our stay was the Maldivian Experience buffet... just outstanding range of...

A wonderful place to stay and unwind. The island is just the right size, big enough to be interesting but small enough to remain exclusive. 70 villas so enough people to meet and chat to if you want to but not too many if you want to stay private. Wonderful staff and 3 marvellous restaurants offering different styles of cuisine....
