The Cool Pool of the Week: Baros Maldives

Most Millennials have heard of over-the-water suites, but what about over-the-water swimming pools? 

Set in a wooden deck above the lagoon, Baros Maldives offers one of the first over-the-water swimming pools in the Maldives. The infinity pool is set to the curve of the resort’s signature Lime Restaurant’s wooden deck and offers an impressive view of the lagoon.

While lounging poolside, Millennials can enjoy a menu of poolside snacks for the health conscious and fresh cocktails from Lime Restaurant. Locally-inspired signature dishes from the poolside menu include lobster salad (charcoal grilled lobster tail, mango, avocado, mizuna and vanilla dressing) and "Taste of the Indian Ocean Pizza" (lobster, prawns, reef fish, chili, mint and rocket).

On a hot sunny day, pair these dishes with the “Mango Basil Cooler” (fresh basil straight from the Baros garden, hand-pressed lime, honey and juicy mangoes) or the refreshing “Ginger-Orange Daiquiri” (Bacardi Gold, ginger liqueur, lime juice, honey syrup and orange juice).

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Baros Maldives is dedicated to couples, whether on a secret interlude together, a honeymoon in the sun, a special anniversary, or for those who just want to enjoy each other’s company away from stress and hassle. 

No small children or groups are allowed to disturb the serenity of the resort.
