bold expansion plans in Maldives & Sri Lanka for Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts

Posted in Business, Future, News on 7 May, 2019

Following the recent announcement of the latest property to launch within the Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts portfolio – VARU by Atmosphere(opening in late 2019 in North Malé Atoll) – the fast-growing Indian Ocean based hospitality brand has now unveiled further bold expansion plans for four more properties that are set to open between 2020 and 2021 across the Maldives and Sri Lanka.

In a cluttered market, Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts’ consistent success has been driven by its steadfast commitment to delivering an innovative approach to the typical beach holiday experience – offering the discerning global traveller with uniquely formulated, all-encompassing Resort Plans which have demonstrated high customer satisfaction, and in turn, a loyalty unmatched by competitors. The group has continued to launch and establish consecutive successful properties with a best-in-class positioning since its inception in 2013.

Mr. Venkata Giri, Chief Operating Officer at Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, comments: “Our rapid expansion plans are a true indication of Atmosphere  Hotels & Resorts’ world-class offering and services. We’re proud to be able to welcome even more visitors to the Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts brand now that we are launching four more properties across both the Maldives and Sri Lanka. It has always been our mission to create unique, authentic, and beyond imaginary experiences for our guests.”

“Our success is firmly rooted in our strong brand portfolio that we have developed over the last six years in the Maldives. OZEN, our flagship, five-star luxury resort, OBLU at Helengeli and OBLU SELECT at Sangeli, our superior and deluxe resorts, and the original Atmosphere resort, five-star Atmosphere Kanifushi.

“Our core philosophy, ‘The Joy of Giving’, which is all about a holistic guest-centric experience, offers those who choose Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts an all-encompassing, hassle-free holiday. We’re excited to extend this brand ethos to our new Maldivian properties from 2020, and our new Sri Lankan properties from 2021. ”


Two more for The Maldives

Opening in 2020, OBLU X in the Malé Atoll will be the largest of all Atmosphere properties, with 350 villas and suites. This three-star property will have a contemporary approach and positioning, bringing Atmosphere’s high levels of service and experiences to the three-star segment like never before.

A second four-star OBLU property with 220 villas and suites will open in 2020 in the hugely popular Baa Atoll, incorporating contrasting elements of nature and a cast-away theme.

Selecting Sri Lanka

Following great success in the Maldives with OZEN at Maadhoo, the story of OZEN continues its journey by expanding into the south coast of Sri Lanka with OZEN by Atmosphere at Tangalle; set to launch in 2021. This exclusive resort will have 37 villas and 5 private residences, offering guests an accessible quality of luxury and pure indulgence. Bringing the signature luxury aesthetics of the established OZEN brand into an entirely new setting that is Sri Lanka,  merging with its rich culture and heritage.

Also coming in 2021, is OBLU Select at Tangalle – with 118 rooms and suites. The property is set to establish an entirely new way to experience the popular holiday destination, following the trends set by the first OBLU SELECT at Sangeli that opened in July 2018 in North Malé Atoll, Maldives.

Every property within the Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts portfolio has a specific Resort Plan that is tailored to each property, in order to maximise the guest experience. From the exquisite accommodation and delectable culinary options, to a range of activities and cultural experiences which allow guests to deeply explore their holiday destination, the Resort Plans allow guests to have a profound and personified resort experience.
