Baros Maldives wins two World Travel Awards
The family owned resort has once again claimed the coveted title of the “World’s Most Romantic Hotel”, alongside a second award for “The World’s Leading Island Villas.”
The awards were accepted by Joanna Koski, Marketing Manager, at the Gala Ceremony on 30 November 2013 in Doha. The World Travel Awards are regarded as the hospitality industry’s Oscars. Nominations come from members of the travel industry and those associated professionally with the travel trade, and are based on regularly conducted expert evaluations.
Baros was selected over the leading romantic resorts in Antigua, Argentina, Bahamas, Dubai, Mauritius, Thailand and Turkey. Finalists for the Worlds’ Leading Island Villas – for which the previous winners have all been in the Pacific – came from Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Fiji Cook Islands and Polynesia.
Baros Maldives – which is celebrating its 40th Anniversary on 7th December 2013 – is a small, luxurious independent resort in the Indian Ocean, just 20 minutes by speedboat from the Maldives International Airport. It consists of 75 beach and overwater villas, some with individual swimming pools, an exclusive Baros Residence, three gourmet-class restaurants, a vibrant house reef and golden sand beach encircling the island, a spa, a gym, and lush tropical gardens.
