India & The Indian Ocean
Location: North Male Atoll, Maldives
The Maldives is synonymous with honeymooning couples and idyllic tropical islands. Baros Maldives is no exception. Oozing romance and privacy, this small resort is perfect if you want to escape the stresses of everyday life. You can expect total peace and tranquillity - there are no noisy water sports and no children under eight. Now how appealing does that sound?
If that’s not enough to tempt you then the personalised service will win you over. Every aspect of your holiday is focused around making your stay special to you: from a chat with the Executive Chef over your food preferences to bespoke dive programmes. Even at the spa, the team will devise a series of treatments (from the plethora of options) especially to suit your needs and guaranteed to leave you feeling pampered and relaxed.
The piece de resistance has to be the house reef that’s just a few metres swim from the beach (easily accessible even for timid snorkellers) and bursting with marine life, and if you’re an experienced diver there are enough nearby dive sites to explore to keep you happy for at least a week! If you’d prefer not to venture underwater, you won’t be missing out - simply pick a spot on your overwater terrace and watch turtles and rays glide past, or visit the Marine Centre and adopt your own coral and you’ll receive an updated picture every six months (a truly unique holiday memory!)
And we haven’t even mentioned the mouth-watering food (don’t leave without enjoying a romantic sandbank dinner) and secluded Pool Villas......
