In keeping with its aim to offer guests even more, Baros Maldives, the award winning, private island resort in the Indian Ocean, is adding overwater swimming pools to five of its Water Villas, and expanding its fitness centre with more space and new, state-of-the-art gym equipment.
As the third resort to open (in 1973) in the Maldives and completely rebuilt in 2005, Baros Maldives is continually developing to match the expectations of the sophisticated traveller and to remain one of the best resorts in the Maldives. Family owned and authentically Maldivian, the elegant resort has 75 luxurious Water and Beach villas as well as three gourmet-class restaurants, a cocktail lounge with panoramic views, a palm garden bar, and an exclusive spa.
The expanded fitness centre is 154 sq ms in area with a glass-panelled panoramic view of a lush, tropical garden, as well as the latest exercise machines including new treadmills, an elliptical fitness cross trainer and a recumbent bike.
All of the new machines include TV and internet. It is air-conditioned and open from 5am to 11pm every day for guests to practise their own fitness regimes, with fresh towels, water and fruits for those working out. Five water villas have been converted to premium accommodation each with a private swimming pool (6.6 m by 3.6 m) set into an expanded timber veranda deck above the lagoon, with loungers for sunbathing and enjoying the view. These five villas are at the end of the boardwalk jetty, ideal for witnessing the glorious sunsets. Each villa reflects the natural beauty of the Maldives and the elegance of the resort.
While Baros Maldives already has eight Baros Pool Villas with pool, two Baros Premium Pool Villas with pool and Jacuzzi, as well as The Baros Residence with private garden swimming pool – each of these five improved Premium Pool Water Villas are the ultimate indulgence for guests who want pure privacy guaranteed by their exotic location over the lagoon. They will be open from September 2012 and guests are advised to book early to avoid disappointment so they can enjoy the most desirable accommodation in the Maldives above the crystal clear Baros lagoon.
