The five-star VARU by Atmosphere brings a modern, ‘Naturally Maldivian’ essence to the collection, by combining local tradition and culture with contemporary design and first-class service.
The term ‘VARU’ comes from the local language ‘Dhivehi’, and means life in abundance, strength, resilience, and above all, authenticity.
Specialist dining outlets include NÜ – an overwater Mediterranean Seafood Restaurant, CHARCOAL – a Beachside Grill Restaurant, and KAAGÉ – a progressive Maldivian Restaurant serving traditional cuisine with modern flair.
In a fiercely competitive market, Atmopshere Hotels & Resorts’ success has been driven by the brand’s philosophy – The Joy of Giving. This ethos is engrained throughout the concept, development and delivery of all the resorts, and is shared with all guests through the personal service and unique All-Inclusive Resort Plans. The ‘VARU Plan’ goes beyond the typical All-Inclusive concept, and includes villa accommodation, all food and beverages, special dining experiences, in-villa services, excursions, spa treatments, and more.
“On this special day, we are delighted to be opening VARU by Atmosphere”, says Venkata Giri, Chief Operating Officer of Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, “our fifth resort since launching with Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives in 2013.
