Baros Maldives, North Male Atoll

Who knew you could go to Heaven without that inconvenient dying part?

If there's one place in the world that you should include on your own "bucket list" this is it!. Seriously, you couldn't dream it better than this "pinch me" location.

A resort doesn't get accolades like "Best place on earth" and "Heaven on Earth" by accident. Meticulous attention is paid to every aspect of your stay and you can do as much or as little as you like.

After being greeted at the Male airport you'll be swept away by motorcraft to the island paradise called "Baros".

Because the resort provides things like robes, slippers, hair dryers, spa quality beauty products and laundry service, you can pack super light and avoid airport lineups.

Located in the Indian Ocean archipelago, Baros is the ultimate in luxury Spa vacations and so much more.
