Ultimate 2017 Eid Al Adha break – for those who haven’t yet visited paradise – there’s a world out there for the luxury explorer and it doesn’t come much better than this. It may sound like a plug or an endorsement, well in some ways it is. But when you consider a four hour flight from the UAE will deliver you to the Indian shores of paradise absolute – it’s worth tickling your curiosity right? If you closed your eyes and thought what paradise would look like – you’d be somewhat closer if you saw Baros Maldives for yourself.
Experience the Indian Ocean Like Never Before with Baros Maldives
The Maldives is a short four-hour flight away from the UAE, making it an ideal long weekend getaway destination.
As the third resort to open in the Maldives, Baros Maldives remains a true reflection of authentic Maldivian hospitality. Since it’s opening in December 1973, Baros quickly gained a reputation for its world-class personalised service and beauty. From the beginning, (according to a 1983 guidebook), the resort was renowned for “its luxuriant tropical foliage and enchanting reefs”. This has only been enhanced over the past four decades and Baros is still recognised for its authentic Maldivian hospitality and is acclaimed as one of the best and most romantic resorts. The resort has won many awards throughout the years and was recently bestowed with nine awards at the 2016 TripAdvisor Awards including “Top 10 Luxury Hotel in the Maldives” and “Top 10 Hotels for Romance in the Maldives”. This is why we simply had to visit.
For those who have ‘previously visited paradise’ you’ll recall the connections, sea plane, boats, transfers – however, Baros is one of the easiest to reach from Malé only a 25-minute speedboat ride away. No connecting seaplane flights and no waiting, within 25 minutes you can be relaxing on its pristine white beaches without a care in the world! Wait for the photos of the underwater marine life – it’s incredible how much we don’t experience day-to-day.
There are several experiences one can explore during your stay including; Black Coral Reef Exploration, Marina life discovery, Scuba and Deep-Sea Diving, Deep Sea Fishing – offering slightly more than other islands we’ve visited.
Discover the Secret of the “Black Coral” Reef
Enjoy a day-trip on-board a traditional Dhoni surrounded by the unforgettable beauty of the scattered isles. Guests can follow an experienced snorkelling guide into the secret underwater world at the “Black Coral” reef. Known to be a coveted snorkelling site, your personal snorkelling guide will guide you around the reef wall, to end with a three-hour experience with a delicious picnic served on the Dhoni itself. Just don’t forget your underwater camera!
Satisfy your curiosity and get a taste of Maldivian culture and history. At approx. 2km long and 1km wide, Male’ is the smallest capital city in the world. Concentrated within this densely populated area are the country’s main political, economic, and educational and health institutions. You can enjoy a day touring the city’s lively fish market, the Grand Friday Mosque and the Presidential Palace, ending your adventure at the local crafts market for that – all important souvenir shopping.
Big Game Fishing – Deep Sea Fishing
Experience the thrill and excitement of Big Game Fishing as you search the deep, blue waters for fast, ocean going fish such as Sailfish, Tuna, Marlin, and Wahoo. Baros Maldives’ professional crew will help guests test their strength and land the catch of your lifetime.
Divers Baros Maldives
A country of nearly 1,200 tropical islands set in translucent lagoons in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is renowned for some of the world’s most spectacular underwater diving experiences. Divers Baros Maldives was one of the first professional and qualified diving centres in the archipelago. Their successful philosophy of careful exploration and dedicated conservation resulted in Divers Baros Maldives becoming a PADI five-star Gold Palm Dive Centre in 2008 and becoming the first resort with an Eco Dive Centre in the Maldives in 2010.
Private Sandbank Cinema
Perhaps the most beautiful cinema you’ll have ever been to, on a clear evening, enjoy an exclusive private cinema screening on a sandbank in the middle of the Indian Ocean, while sipping on some bubbly and nibbling on popcorn.
