Blissful festive season at Baros Maldives

Published

on

For the upcoming 2019 festive season, the blissful island of Baros Maldives is set to transform into a magical setting of festive escapades designed and curated especially for families, friends and couples.

In the spirit of gift-giving, guests are encouraged to give back to nature by sponsoring a frame of coral fragments to be planted in the Baros Coral Garden, a coral rejuvenation project maintained by a team of resident marine biologists. Guests who sponsor a coral frame will receive news of its growth every six months for two years, after which corals will encapsulate the frame.

During the festive season, the resort’s resident marine biologist will also conduct nature walks and presentations, so guests can learn about the eco-systems of Baros, including its mature gardens and vibrant house-reef.

Since December is the time of celebration, the nightly culinary journey at Baros will mark the occasion better than ever with blissful escapades like dining on a private sandbank underneath a million stars or Jazz and Champagne Dinner. In the evenings, the resort’s Palm Garden will be transformed into a festive atmosphere with live music and buffet dinners including ‘Grills of The World’ barbecue, ‘Tastes of Asia’, and the ‘Maldivian Experience’ buffet.

The iconic Lighthouse Restaurant will curate special gourmet experiences for guests to celebrate romance and intimacy in a blissful setting. The classic Lighthouse gastronomic experience will shift into a seven-course customised degustation menu, presenting classic fine-dining cuisine, delighting guests with new creations. The festive gourmet gala dinner on Christmas and New Year’s Eve will also be preceded by a sunset cocktail on the private sandbank – exclusively for Lighthouse guests.

The resort’s award-winning culinary team are preparing to demonstrate their skills through exclusive recipes that guests can recreate at home to remind them of the blissful experience they have had at Baros.

There will be an enchanting melody to enjoy on the Baros Piano Deck – a symphony of fine cuisine served in exclusivity in the exotic setting of a deck in the middle of the beautiful lagoon of the resort. This is a unique experience for guests to appreciate independence and tropical tranquillity during the festive time.

The Baros sandbank will also be available for the exclusive use of a couple to enjoy a romantic meal, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. Guests will have the chance to make this festive season unique and witness the Maldivian sunrise over a gourmet breakfast, savour succulent sushi with a picnic lunch, or enjoy a barbecue amidst the rich hues of the Baros sunset whilst enjoying the most romantic dinner imaginable with a festive season menu, which includes caviar, wagyu beef, lobster and wine.

Guests can also enjoy blissful freedom aboard the resort’s very own traditional sailing dhoni, Nooma, with a romantic cruise for a couple. Cruise the clear waters of the lagoon, where the colours of the evening sky dance on the waves. Enjoy champagne, canapés and the glorious Baros sunset from the comfort of your private sailing dhoni.

The blissful experience will just be perfect at the resotr’s Serenity Spa, open every day during the festive season. Guests can choose from a bespoke selection of deeply soothing therapeutic and beautifying treatments in the spa’s deluxe private suites. Especially for the festive season, the spa will offer “Serenity Immersion”, a therapy designed to enable couples to explore the far depths of utter relaxation together, with immersion in a ceremony that eases away all tensions, leaving both refreshed and rejuvenated.

The festive celebrations at Baros will be memorable, with the seasonal traditions of the annual gala dinner on December 24 and 31, and a countdown gathering on the Lime Restaurant deck to ring in the New Year of 2020 in ‘Blissful Baros’ style.

Only the third resort to open in the Maldives (1973) and the first dive centre to open in the archipelago (1979), Baros is situated in the central southern part of North Male Atoll, just 25 minutes by speedboat from the Maldives main Velana International Airport. It is surrounded by a beautiful house reef, only 15 to 30 metres from the shore, alive with colours, fish, turtles, rays and coral.

With beach villas of classic elegance set in lush vegetation and secluded water villas, many of which come with private pools, Baros is one of the most romantic resorts in the Maldives, the perfect honeymoon getaway. Inspired by Maldivian traditions of heartfelt hospitality, Baros is a tropical island dream come true with fine cuisine and drinks served at three gourmet class restaurants, two bars, and a cigar and shisha lounge.

The spa at Baros is located in a beautiful, lush tropical garden where serenity saturates the atmosphere, and is accessed by over-water stepping stones. It is a tranquil haven where complete well-being in body, mind and soul is made possible.

The well-forged identity of Baros has been consistently enhanced and refined during its 45 years of hospitality. This bijou island is designed with a cosy and intimate concept that ensures a blissful time in elegance and harmony for couples, honeymooners, or guests celebrating meaningful bonds with loved ones. A renewal of vows ceremony on the beach, a sunset cruise by the island’s exclusive traditional dhoni Nooma, private dining on a sandbank or on the Piano Deck set in the island’s lagoon, are some of the romantic experiences at Baros for couples to enjoy.
