Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts Demonstrates the Strength of Authenticity with VARU by Atmosphere Opening in 2019


Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts has unveiled further expansion plans, with another five-star Maldivian property, VARU by Atmosphere, set to open in October 2019.

‘Varu’ is a term in Dhivehi meaning strength, resilience and life in abundance, and the resort will offer a truly Maldivian experience by incorporating aspects of local traditions and cultures.

Located in the North-West edge of Malé Atoll, VARU by Atmosphere will feature 108 luxurious villas. 39 Beach Front Villas will have spacious interiors and outdoor decks, surrounded by lush green vegetation and just a few metres from the white sandy beach, while 69 Overwater Villas will have signature Maldivian-style interiors and direct access to the turquoise lagoon from the deck.

Both villa types offer minimalistic design styles with splashes of vibrant colours, and come with the option of private pools. Additional resort facilities include a dive and water sports centre, ELENA spa, gymnasium and kids club.

The resort island’s reef is known to be home to Mantas and other vibrant wildlife species, which will allow guests unique snorkelling and diving experiences unlike others on offer in the Maldives.

All guests at the resort will stay on the ‘Platinum Plus Plan’, offering an array of food and beverage options, in-villa services and amenities, excursions, and more.

In a highly competitive market, Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts’ success has been driven by its commitment to delivering a unique and heartfelt culture, underpinned by all-encompassing resort plans which have led to high customer satisfaction and loyalty unmatched by competitors.

Mr. Venkata Giri, Chief Operating Officer at Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, comments: “Our ongoing expansion plans proves the strength of the Atmosphere offering and culture. We’re proud and excited to open another five-star property in the Maldives, this time with a truly Maldivian experience.

“Our success is firmly rooted in the uncomplicated joy with which we are able to serve our guests, with customers consistently choosing us ahead of other well-known resorts. This latest addition to the Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts portfolio will provide guests with a naturally Maldivian experience like no other.”

All Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts guests stay on resort plans tailored to each property, covering accommodation, food and beverages, a range of activities including excursions, non-motorized water sports and spa treatments.

VARU by Atmosphere is due to open in October 2019, and is easily accessible by a 40-minute speedboat journey from Malé International Airport.
