Experience blissful island living at its best in VARU By Atmosphere where Maldivian culture sweeps through the palm-fringed paradise. By Bayar Jain
Located at a 45-minute scenic speedboat ride from Malé International Airport at Varu island, VARU By Atmosphere is a microcosm of Maldivian island living at its best. Step onto this palm-fringed paradise and segue into a world of blissful living, with enchanting Boduberu drum beats and refreshing welcome drinks to celebrate the arrival. From here, the tropical wonders only elevate.
Choose from 108 villas sitting daintily over sparkling turquoise waters or lush beachside gardens. The heavenly water villas, in particular, cantilever out from three different jetties around the lagoon. For a family holiday, we recommend an exclusive double floored Majlis Suite. This palatial accommodation style comes with two bedrooms, a private inner courtyard with a personal pool, an ocean-view living-cum-dining room, a kitchenette, and a separate room for the nanny. Irrespective of the stay option chosen, expect scents of frangipani wafting through the air with signature interiors accentuating the architecture.
The world unravels on a platter at VARU By Atmosphere. Take Lime & Chilli, for instance. This all-day dining restaurant delights tastebuds with a delectable spread from Europe, Asia, and local Maldivian dishes. At BAY ROUGE, the main pool bar, golden hours are made better with classic sundowners. NÜ crafts mouth-watering Mediterranean seafood backdropped by the expansive ocean; while al fresco seating against balmy sea breeze await at CHARCOAL restaurant, a beachside diner replete with fragrant grills. Post sundown, reserve a night at KAAGÉ—the resort’s signature restaurant that comes set in a traditional Maldivian house adorned by heritage photographs and video storytelling. Here, local flavours presented with a progressive twist come alive.
At VARU By Atmosphere, spend memorable family time snorkelling in a crystal-clear lagoon, sunset fishing on a Dhoni, or even giving non-motorised water sports a shot. Younger guests can indulge in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities as well. Think treasure hunts and craft sessions at the Kids Club or dolphin watching on vast blue seas. Those looking to rejuvenate in paradise can enjoy locally-inspired spa massages, couples’ treatments, floating meditation, moonlit experiences, or even daily activities such as yoga.
