I’m at Baros, the original luxury resort in the Maldives

Baros Maldives is the original luxury resort in Maldives, according to locals, and it’s definitely aged into its elegance.

It’s small (you can walk the entire island in about ten minutes), rustic (all the flora is native and untouched), understated (the luxury is in the design and experiences) and has so much soul.

Baros is only a 20-minute speedboat away from the airport, which is a huge perk. You don’t have to hop on a seaplane (and pay an extra $500 to get to another property).

There’s good energy at Baros, which, for the most part, is more important than the bells and whistles of an over-the-top resort.

I’ve been here two nights, and I can see myself tacking on a few more.

Check out out favorite luggage, too! TUMI’s new collection is amazing and only on Amazon.
