Up there with the most stunning places I have ever had the pleasure to stay in, this luxury Maldivian resort lies amidst the exotic turquoise hues of the South Male Atoll.
Just 35km from Male International Airport, they even provide a 24/7 airport team to welcome and escort you to their luxury speedboat, for an exhilarating 35-minute transfer to the serene island of Maadhoo.
‘The Joy of Giving’ is the mantra of Atmosphere Hotels' core philosophy, offering guests a range of all-encompassing experiences and resort plans, with varieties of dining options along with complimentary amenities and activities that ensure a relaxed, hassle-free holiday experience.
I tip my hat to any organisation that provides a “Gin Is In” initiative in its all-inclusive resort plans, housing an extensive range of top brands, paired with an exquisite range of tonics, all expertly fused by a team of mixologists and bartenders as well as gin tastings and cocktail-making classes being arrangeable on request.
The resort is spread over an expansive turquoise lagoon and features 41 beachfront villas, idyllically positioned on a soft and pristine sandy beach, overlooking the horizon.
Additionally, 49 over-water villas, built on creatively designed stilts, offer a romantic and mesmeric experience.
The accommodation itself is stunning. Living spaces have been created with the utmost comfort in mind, whilst incorporating a seamless fusion of modern design, nature and vibrancy.
Beachfront earth villas come complete with outdoor deck, tropical garden and outdoor bathroom with monsoon shower and hand-crafted bathtub as well as an option to have an 8m infinity lap pool.
Wind villas situated over-water are romantic havens with their cosy and warm interiors and seductive bathroom offering views of the horizon from the stand-alone ellipse-shaped bathtub.
The earth family pool suites provide vast living space with each having their own large swimming pool whilst the Ozen water suite may take some beating in providing the ultimate luxury family holiday experience.
The three- bedroom suite is situated at the Pier with stunning views from every angle. Its features include a 35 sq.m over-water pool, personal gym, outdoor dining pavilion, maid's room with separate access and private bathrooms for every bedroom.
Unsurprisingly, guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining, with a wide selection of fantastic international cuisine, including showstopper M6m where delicious lobster and steak dishes can be savoured in a breathtaking underwater setting.
Diving of course is also well catered for with opportunities for all to explore underneath the beautiful turquoise waters surrounding the island with the resorts very own PADI certified dive school. The Aqua Club also offers lots of both motorised and non-motorised sports activities.
If that all sounds way too energetic then for some pretty fine chill time you can visit the Elena by Atmosphere Spa and enjoy luxuriously crafted experiences in one of the spectacular over-water treatment rooms.
