Private Residences by Small Luxury Hotels of the World

Maldives, North Malé Atoll Baros Residence

Elegant and romantic hideaway enclosed by bird of paradise and palms, with its own private pool and garden.

Surrounded by green foliage and bird-of-paradise blossoms, the award-winning Baros Residence is an exquisite retreat of privacy and intimacy, hidden away from the rest of the island. Take advantage of the private pool and swim amidst the ferns and blooms of a tropical garden or enjoy a quiet read on the sun deck. The villa is complete with a King size bed with linen canopy, luxury indoor shower and bathtub plus outdoor rain fall shower, Lavazza Espresso machine, a personalised mini-bar as well as entertainment facilities and a dedicated butler on hand 24 hours a day.


Baros is perched around an idyllic secluded island in a crystal-clear coral lagoon in the Maldives. Encircled by clear, warm waters and white sands, and dotted with swaying palms and fragrant flowers, this intimate resort’s scenery is picture perfect. Teamed with serene contemporary rooms and residences, tempting fine-dining options, a heavenly spa and aquatic activities from yachting to yoga, and you have the ultimate atoll escape.

Being in the Maldives means guests are surrounded by some of the world’s best diving sites and Baros make exploring them easy. On the island is the Divers Baros Maldives centre which has been operating in the beautiful ocean waters since 1979. It is a PADI five-star Gold Palm Dive Centre with an experienced international team focusing on services and diving in small groups with personal attention.  With a facility such as this to hand for guests it would be a real shame not to embrace it and dive it.

The Baros Residence is set within the grounds of SLH property Baros Maldives.
