It promises unlimited cocktails and mocktails, premium brand drinks and a choice of dining, with a complimentary fine dining experience at The Sunset (if you are staying in a land based villa) or Pier Six (if you are staying in a water villa). From the minute you’re personally met at Malé International Airport by the Atmosphere Team, you’re taken care of.

The place is beautiful and maintained very well. The hotel is very responsive and punctual. Any request is taken promptly. the relation manager Ayaan helped all the arrangements (water activities and dinning reservation) on the day we arrived. the room is cleaned twice a day All the restaurants are excellent from Spice, Just Veg, Ceylon Bliss, and Pier Six. I couldn't try SunSet, but I believe that must be good after trying I expected just good food, but, it turned out all the restaurants were one of the best fine restaurants in downtown. With the perfect beach and ocean, it can't be better. the variety of liquid is again excellent. All the wines (white, red, rose, sparkling) , beers, cocktails, and whiskey . you can choose from around 100. Any request for the liquid is taken immediately . All of them are free. The only thing I have to complain is the area of snorkeling in the resort. The jetty area is the only place to do it, which is very limited compared to other resorts. Otherwise, you have to select snorkeling trip which happens twice a day. the snorkeling trip is quite nice. I tried twice during the stay. I was able to see a turtle in front of me. which was amazing In the jetty area, I have noticed a lot of fish, turtles, and string rays. You can go there at night and check it. You can borrow fins, safety jacket, and snorkeling equipment for free during the stay. This was the best hotel I have ever been to. I really recommend this hotel to everyone. Read less
