Baros - living the dream
Posted Dec 4, 2016 on Hotels
Beautiful island only 20 minutes speedboat transfer. Wonderful house reef and turquoise lagoon. Perfect for days existing of snorkelling and floating in the warm sea. We saw amazing sea life, turtles, black and white tip reef sharks, eagle ray, sting ray, clown fish, giant trevelli fish, so many to mention. Snorkel fins and mask were complementary.
The friendly staff were prepared to go the extra mile, set up a table especially for us on the beach near the water on Asian experience night and did the same without any prompting on BBQ night.
Food wonderful, lots of reef fish dishes, menus that highlighted Maldivian food. Breakfast buffet very good with welcome drink and waiter service. Food and wine expensive but it didn't stop us having delicious cocktails at sundown in the lighthouse bar! Cocktails served with the most delicious canapés, loved the spring rolls dipped in sauce! Dinner in the lighthouse restaurant was special, I had snapper fillets which were super gorgeous but needed a sauce. Coconut ice cream is a dream and an absolute must have. Island has enough a la carte restaurants with enough variation in the menu along with the themed evenings.
The beach villas are private and beautifully maintained, everything is within easy walking distance. Only need flip flops even for the managers cocktail party!
We had perfect weather, calm seas and a fabulous time. Only a slight issue with the bill at the end and could have given it more attention to getting it right.
