Step into your very own piece of paradise at VARU by Atmosphere and experience Maldives at its best. By Team T+L
On the north-western edge of Malé Atoll, is the luxurious retreat of VARU by Atmosphere that unfurls like a Maldivian dream. With 108 overwater and beachfront villas, this tropical paradise is the perfect amalgamation of contemporary architecture and indigenous milieu.
A 40-minute speed boat ride from the Malé International Airport will take you to VARU, where a warm and traditional welcome awaits you—think of a soothing welcome drink, a handcrafted palm leaf necklace, the resonating sound of conch shells, and the rhythmic bodu beru drums. Every Atmosphere resort stays true to the ‘Joy of Giving’ philosophy, and VARU is no different. The dedicated staff believes in bespoke hospitality and carving out unique experiences for their guests.
The VARU Plan at the resort is a programme aimed to make your stay seamless. This all-inclusive package lets you indulge in different types of cuisines crafted by global culinary experts, explore the mesmerising lagoon through underwater excursions, and bask in the sun on your private deck while sipping on your favourite drink.
Live out your fantasy in the exclusive Water Suite, with a private plunge pool, a spacious bedroom, living room, and a deck with direct access to the lagoon. The beachfront Majlis Suite is nothing short of a delight, with two bedrooms over two floors, an inner courtyard pool, a private kitchen, and an extra room for your dedicated butler.
Step out of your dreamy overwater abode and stroll along any of the three jetties—Dolphin, Manta, or Turtle—and enjoy stunning ocean views. The classy overwater restaurant, NÜ is perfect for a scrumptious meal of authentic Mediterranean seafood. Head over the KAAGÉ for a Maldivian fine dining experience.
ELENA, the spa and wellness complex, features six overwater treatment rooms with glass-bottom floors, a fully-equipped gymnasium, a salt pool, steam and sauna facilities, a salon, and a boutique. Pick from the diverse range of holistic treatments or try the signature Maldivian Sand Massage to end your Maldivian vacation on a magical note.
