The resort has a stunning house reef full of spectacular marine life just a few strokes from the beach and there are 30 world class dive spots within 50 minutes by boat. At the Dive Centre guests can learn not only scuba diving, but also participate in Eco Diving at the EcoDive Centre, which is the first in the Maldives Islands.

At the separate Marine Centre, guests can borrow snorkelling gear free of charge, join guided snorkelling excursions, obtain information and take part in awareness programmes conducted by the resident Marine Biologist.

Maldives Island Resorts don’t come any better than Baros Maldives!

ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

Baros Maldives has been a leader in green initiatives for 40 years making it a pioneer Eco Friendly Resort in the Maldives. Formerly an uninhabited wilderness of coconut palms and tropical undergrowth surrounded by an untouched, coral sand beach, the resort’s original rural ambience has been enhanced by careful nurturing of its natural eco-systems. Every day a team of gardeners works to maintain the island’s aura of romance and beauty to complement the luxury resort villas special to an island in the Maldives.

Baros Maldives is like a tropical botanical garden, a unique combination of environmentally responsible luxury, simple Maldivian authenticity and practical sustainability.

On the Island

  • Environmental concern is paramount even behind the scenes at Baros Maldives.
  • Water is recycled so it can be used, after purification, for irrigation of the garden.
  • Led light systems with a longer lifespan and lower electricity consumption are standard.
  • All the air conditioning units are CFC free.
  • Guest villas are fitted with a heat exchange system that heats water used for bathing.
  • Staff accommodation and back-of-house areas are supplied with hot water from the heat exchange system fitted to the island’s generators.
  • All chemicals used for the cleaning of kitchens, restaurants, public areas, staff accommodation, guest villas, boats, and in the laundry, are bio-degradable.
  • Awareness programmes with tours to neighbouring village and uninhabited islands, and diving and fishing expeditions, to promote understanding for ecological issues.

In the Sea

The fragile coral reefs of the Maldives are some of the most spectacular in the world, drawing thousands of visitors each year for snorkelling and diving. Yet they are much more than just a tourist attraction, they are the foundation of the whole country, both literally and in terms of sustaining the industries on which the population depends.

Both tourism and fishing would cease if the coral reefs were destroyed. It is vital for the existence of the Maldives that the value and fragility of the coral reefs is understood and considered.

  • Guests are urged to respect the reef and to refrain from breaking off, or even pressing, any pieces of coral.
  • Guests are made aware that in the Maldives it is illegal to collect any coral, shells, or other souvenirs from the ocean.
  • Buying any souvenirs made of turtle shell is illegal in Maldives, and such souvenirs will be confiscated at the airport with a fine being payable.
  • There is now a ban on shark fishing and exporting shark products as shark numbers have dwindled in recent years.
