As planned and promised, the latest resort from Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, VARU by Atmosphere, opened its doors to guests last Thursday (17th October).
The resort team at VARU by Atmosphere in the North-West Malé Atoll has welcomed its very first guests, who were greeted with a traditional warm Maldivian welcome.
VARU by Atmosphere is the fifth Maldivian property from Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts. 69 Overwater Villas extend across three teardrop-shaped footbridges, while 39 Beach Front Villas sit nestled amongst the greenery on the island. All villas feature traditional Maldivian interior design elements and have easy access to the turquoise blue water of the VARU lagoon.
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, Atmosphere 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. We are excited to hear feedback from our first guests and hope they love the resort as much as we do”.
“We are committed to providing all of our resort guests with a stay that is second to none, and one where they can truly sense our Joy of Giving philosophy”.
“We look forward to welcoming our UK friends to VARU by Atmosphere and hope to see you soon”.
