The tranquil, award-winning boutique resort of Baros -- a North Malé Atoll island approximately 25 minutes by boat from the airport in Malé -- is "the jewel in the Maldives crown" and "the most relaxing beach resort you could ever hope to visit", according to GQ Magazine.

One of the first of the Maldives to open up to tourism in the early 1970s, Baros's features chilled-out thatched-roof dwellings perched casually atop endless crystal-blue waters. The relaxed vibe is genuine -- unlike other islands in the Maldives, Baros has its own coral reef, and diving and watersports centres, which means there's no need to charter a boat to find these.The 75 accommodation types at Baros vary between beach villas -- many with their own private tropical gardens -- or pool villas with private infinity pools or Jacuzzis, including one larger residence with a four-poster day bed and its own pool and garden, and the 30 deluxe thatched-roof over-water villas strung out along the island's sandbank. All of the villas feature natural teak ceilings and floors, flat-screen TVs/DVD players, free Wi-Fi, iPod docks, safes, private sun decks, open-air bathrooms and outdoor rainfall showers. A buffet breakfast is included in the room price. 24-hour room service is available.The resort's world-class dining options include a romantic over-water restaurant at the end of the sandbank, a waterside grill and a chic Asian restaurant, as well as two bars offering live music and entertainment. Other amenities include a palm garden; a shared over-water infinity pool -- purportedly the largest in the Maldives; a gift shop; a beach; and diving and watersports centres for snorkelling, diving (with lessons), wake-boarding, glass-bottomed kayaking, sailing/yachting, including use of the resort's traditional Maldivian wooden sailing dhoni. There’s also a library with board games, CDs and DVDs; a pool/table tennis room; a business centre; a spa; free yoga classes; and a fitness centre. Weddings, honeymoons, vow renewals and other special occasions are also catered for.
