Male’, Maldives, 13th November 2022 – Baros Maldives has received the award for World’s Most Romantic Resort in the world seventh time in a row since 2012. The resort has crafted an incredible experience. Guests can set sail on Nooma in the traditional way while enjoying their choice of Indian Ocean journey, focusing on either a Maldivian, Sri Lankan, or Indian journey that includes a spa treatment and destination dining experience of the chosen country.
With an elegantly crafted curved prow, a vast single sail, a thatched roof, and a sarong-clad crew of four, Baros’ 19m long sailing vessel Nooma is modelled after the traditional Maldivian sailing boat, locally known as Dhoni. It is a vessel of hidden treasures, with a secluded sun deck for two in the bow, a private saloon lounge paired with an air-conditioned double bedroom, toilet and shower, and a personal butler on board. Nooma is the perfect destination for the ultimate intimate cruise.
As guests listen to the sounds of the Indian Ocean, it is time to savor the sunset with their choice of either Maldivian, Sri Lankan or Indian gourmet canapés and cocktail served by their personal butler. As the sun sets, their personal expert therapists are ready for their treatment of choice.
Guests who opt for the Maldivian treatment will enjoy a coconut scrub based on 100% natural ingredients such as finest sand from Baros that will cleanse, nourish and give your skin that silk soft feeling and purest Maldivian virgin coconut oil and coconut milk that delivers all the essential nutrients for a healthy and glowing skin. Carefully designed techniques combining the best of the massage world will evoke a sublime sense of deep relaxation.
If Sri Lanka is their preferred destination, guests will enjoy a nourishing body wrap, a deeply grounding experience for skin that has never felt softer. Velvety monoi oil is applied on the body for ultra-hydration, followed by a bespoke massage tailored specifically to the guests’ needs focusing on any areas of tension, allowing their body and mind to relax, revive and heal.
The Indian Abhyanga and Shirodhara treatment begins with Abhyanga, a rhythmic massage which uses herbal oils to stimulate the circulation of blood, lymph, and prana (energy). This is followed by Shirodhara, during which a steady stream of oil is gently poured over the forehead to improve clarity of mind.
When heavenly relaxed from their treatment of choice, Nooma will be anchored in the Baros lagoon where guests can dine under the stars and enjoy a delicious Maldivian, Sri Lankan or Indian four course menu.
