Baros Maldives offers ideal holiday for gentlemen

barosBaros Maldives is now offering the ideal holiday for hardworking gentlemen seeking a respite from the pressures and routines of daily life.

“Whether you come to Baros Maldives alone or with a companion, this island retreat gives gentlemen the chance for mature relaxation to inspire the imagination and feel refreshed to face the world again,” the luxury resort said in a press release.

Baros Maldives is acclaimed as one of the world’s most romantic holiday spots, but offers much more than romance in an idyllic hideaway.

At Baros, the gentleman tourist can go big game fishing, take lessons in windsurfing and diving, and enjoy tutored wine tasting sessions.

The private island resort is far away from the stress of responsibility and formal attire, but its proximity to the international airport – a 25-minute scenic speedboat ride – makes it easily accessible for a relaxing short break.

The weary traveller can distance himself from reality or choose to go from solitude for reflection to instant connectivity as each of the resort’s 74 overwater and beach villas has a 54- channel television, iPod music, and complimentary WiFi.

“It’s one of the few places in the world where a hard working gentleman can take off his tie and leather shoes and trade them in for bare feet in the sand.”

After a fulfilling exercise routine at the well-equipped gym, the resort’s spa offers a “For Him Only” special treat for the gentleman visitor: a 145-minute de-stress Oriental Care Massage followed by an especially created Gentlemen’s Facial.

Relaxation can make way for fun-filled activities, from hand trolling for tuna and jack fish to chartering a boat for big game fishing, indulging in watersports and spectacular snorkelling to watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean with a signature Bourbon Cask Smoked Manhattan.

A cognac and a cigar in the gentlemen’s club atmosphere of the LightHouse Lounge after a delectable epicurean dinner is the perfect way to end the day.

Baros Maldives takes pride in the personal attention paid to guests by discreet and intelligent staff members “in an ambience of utter tranquillity and understated luxury.”

Each of the 74 spacious overwater and beach villas is completely private, some with plunge pools, and each has a wine cellar stocked with sommelier-selected fine wines and champagne, as well as a mini bar with premium spirits.
