Villa Cuvier is located on the breath-taking island of Baros, at the heart of the Indian Ocean. A tropical paradise amongst turquoise lagoons, this idyllic setting provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic escape. Be it a chance to enjoy some quality time together or a special occasion to celebrate, the Maldives offers the perfect balance of tranquillity and adventure, with both land and sea to explore.

Baros lies in the southern reaches of the North Malé Atoll. Whilst other Maldivian resorts require long seaplane and ferry journeys from the international airport; the Baros Resort is an enchanting 25-minute speedboat ride from the airport, so you can disembark and find yourself in your private paradise within moments. Speedboats run from the airport to Baros on request at any time of day or night.

The villa itself can be found off a jetty which stretches out across the lagoon so you can hop in and out of the water at any time you choose. You can stroll along the jetty to reach the white sandy shores and the fantastic array of resort facilities. With endless options from swimming with turtles and sailing adventures to champagne cruises and destination dining, there is truly something for everyone.

The serenity spa offers a haven of relaxation, where you can ease your muscles and settle into a state of complete bliss. From daily yoga sessions to tailored massage packages, you can find something to suit everyone. We suggest a morning yoga session, followed by a breakfast picnic on the sandbank and then a dive into the underwater world of the Indian Ocean; can you think of anything better? The resort's five-star PADI Dive Centre supports beginner and experienced divers alike, giving you the opportunity to explore the thousands of fish teaming beneath the glassy water surface. The over-water infinity pool is also open to all guests, offering the perfect relaxing experience.

With vibrant restaurants, candlelit beachfront dining and relaxed beach bars to choose between, you can find something for every occasion, satisfying all your culinary desires. Whether you are looking for delicious food, romantic occasions, underwater adventures or simply a relaxed holiday on the beach, Villa Cuvier offers the ultimate break away; an idyllic villa in a stunning location.

Today, we're one of the most loved Maldives resorts, and we're excited to show you what makes us so special.
