Villa Raa offers a secret world of heavenly indulgence, with its own stretch of white sandy Baros beach just out front. The perfect retreat for a couple, this beautiful villa is filled with comfy furnishings, rich timber spaces and bespoke artworks, all combining to create an intimate, warm space where you can watch your dream holiday play out. Baros is located in the southern reaches of the North Malé Atoll, a mere 25-minute speedboat ride from the International Airport in Mali.

Inside, the villa is spacious and bright, with a separate bedroom and living room giving you all the space you need to feel at home. With a large king-size bed in the bedroom, a good night sleep is almost guaranteed and with no alarms needed, you can wake up to the sounds of nature and the warm glow of morning sun on the white sand outside your bedroom doors. A 24-hour butler provides everything you need, adding a special touch to an unforgettable holiday. The villa’s expansive bathroom pampers you with luxurious amenities, including an indoor shower and a deep free-standing tub that you can sink into. There is a second shower outside, beneath a canopy of palms, so you can refresh amongst nature!

The architecture of Villa Raa embeds you into the tropical landscape, with a towering canopy of trees that lean over your patio and luscious greenery that frames every window. A wide timber deck leads out from the villa where you can relax in total privacy, breathing in the fresh sea air and listening to the tranquil sounds of the Maldives. In your courtyard, you can swim in your own private infinity pool, sip cocktails with your toes in the sand and read books from the comfort of a sun lounger!

Whether you want to do absolutely nothing, spending your days in complete serenity, or you want to find a new adventure every day, scuba diving beneath the ocean and sailing over the mirrored surface, there is something for everyone at Villa Raa. The Baros Resort even offers a 24/7 fitness centre, water sports, infinity pool, spa and a five-star PADI Dive Centre, as well as an array of restaurants and bars for you to enjoy!

The Maldives offers everything you could expect and more. Crystal-clear lagoons, turquoise sea, white sand and coconut palms create an oasis where any lasting worries can drift off on the fresh sea breeze. For visitors of all ages; couples, friends and families alike, the Maldives offers an enchanting world of natural beauty and outstanding hospitality.  

Villa Raa is located on Baros island, in the southern reaches of the North Malé Atoll. Reached by a rapid 25-minute speedboat ride from the international airport in Mali, it seems to only take moments after landing before you can unpack in your tranquil villa. The resort facilities are nestled around the island, with an over-water infinity pool, spa, 24/7 fitness centre, water sports and a five-star PADI Dive Centre, with options for beginner and experienced divers alike! With morning spent sailing across the Indian Ocean, afternoons with a cocktail by the pool and evenings dining by starlight, there is truly something for everyone at the Baros Resort.

A towering canopy of trees leans over the patio at Villa Raa, shading the tranquil courtyard with dappled light. White sand, green foliage and blue skies depict this enchanting villa, with the rich timber interiors supplying warmth and cosiness to contrast with the vibrant outdoors. Located in the Baros Resort on the shorefront, with a 24-hour butler providing everything you need, this impeccable location provides all the indulgences you well deserve. The villa feels completely private, yet the resort facilities are never too far away, so you can enjoy the best of both.

No romantic holiday is quite complete without amazing food and wine, and the Baros Resort will not disappoint. There are four restaurants and two bars with delicious menus for you to enjoy. Or for a special occasion, you can choose one of the bespoke dining options available, setting up a beautiful table at your own private villa, or a candle-lit occasion on the beachfront with your toes in the sand. Whether it is an anniversary, engagement, honeymoon, or simply a chance to enjoy the quality time together away from a busy day to day lives, the Maldives offers something for every occasion; the ultimate romantic break away.

The Resort

Turquoise waters lap at white-sand shores. Towering palms rustle overhead. Welcome to Baros, a natural paradise with a lush island canopy, just 25 minutes by speedboat from the Maldives' international airport. We've been welcoming guests since 1973, and have spent decades honing our services and cultivating our environment, crafting what we believe is a legendary resort. Today, we're one of the most loved Maldives resorts, and we're excited to show you what makes us so special.
