Maldives Magic January 16, 2015

Helen, Travel Adviser here at Caribtours and a sucker for a bit of romance, visited the Maldives recently and came back bowled over by Baros, the ultimate romantic escape...

"You’ll be hard pushed to find a more romantic bolthole than Baros, where simple pleasures are elevated into something truly special. Think twisting your toes in sugar-soft white-sand whilst rustling palm fronds blow overhead; private yoga lessons on a deserted sandbank at sunrise; evenings dining under the stars. All of this is routine procedure on this boutique private island, which exudes style and charm by the bucket load.

Baros is so catch-your-breath spectacular I'm struggling to find a box it doesn’t tick. While it’s ringed by sun-kissed shores and turquoise water, for a tropical island it's surprisingly green. And the diving is superb, with a fabulous house reef and a luxury dive centre on the island, or how about simply chilling out in the brand new infinity pool?

Grown-up, smart villas are peppered amongst the lush vegetation: I loved the Deluxe Beach Villas with their exotic open-air bathrooms nestled amongst your very own sandstone-walled tropical garden. I've also got to recommend the 15 Water Pool Villas, complete with expansive timber decks punctuated by teak tables and private, sunken pools. Guests are allocated their own ‘villa host’, who are pros at making sure everything runs smoothly from the moment they scoop you up at the airport (it’s just a 20-minute speedboat transfer) to advising you on the best daytrips to book onto.

Make time to slope off to the small but stylish spa for couples’ pampering before sampling one of the three mouthwatering restaurants on offer. Then hit Sails Bar for a nightcap – think live music, cocktail in hand and feet in the sand. I guarantee this is a holiday you’ll still be talking about in 10 years’ time."

To speak to Helen about Baros or to make a booking, call 020 7751 0660.
