The addition of Ozen by Atmosphere, located in the South Male Atoll, on the tranquil island of Maadhoo has caused quite a stir to the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean. Elegant Resorts recently sent Jessica Abrams and Louise Newton to investigate and report back on what makes this latest luxury opening so special.With so many outstanding resorts located within the stunning atolls and islands of the Maldives, it's often hard to distinguish between the realms of luxury and indulgence. Effectively addressing the issue of possible 'bill sock' due to the compulsory excess of lavish living and the uncontrollable expense of imported goods, the creative and generous Indulgence Plan™ by Atmosphere is a superb solution which allows guests to experience incredible dining, unlimited beverages and selected spa treatments, plus an excursion - at no additional charge. This welcome level of freedom enables guests to try a series of new experiences, without any hesitation.
Reached by speedboat from Male International Airport, the resort is contemporary in design, overlooks a pristine lagoon and offers both sunrise and sunset views. Surrounded by exotic marine life, the attractions lie far beyond the stylish resort interiors and fine dining. Guests can expect all the usual essentials and attractions - wi-fi, spa, in-villa mini-bar, kids club, gym, Aqua Club and PADI diving; with the bonus of a delectable choice of cuisine, dining venues, premium beverages, spa treatments and excursions included in the rate.The superb service from the friendly staff across the resort and the variety of dining is certainly worth noting. Our many highlights included the IndoCeylon restaurant serving Indian and Chinese dishes, the RAW restaurant attached to the spa that serves delicious fresh sushi for lunch; plus Joie De Vivre the poolside bar. Providing delectable all-day treats, this bar and pizzeria caters for casual snacks, plus boasts an impressive wine list of over 80 wines. During the evening, a DJ from The Ministry of Sound provides an upbeat set - perfect for sampling cocktails and savouring the sunset views! Whether you choose to dine at The Traditions Peking restaurant specialising in Chinese cuisine, The Palms for fine dining, or the exceptional signature M6m underwater venue, the quality of dishes and presentation will not disappoint.
In addition to the gastronomic attractions, the daily use of complimentary kayaks, catamarans, canoes or stand-up paddle boards simply adds to the appeal. Keen snorkelers can visit a number of sites nearby, plus dive enthusiasts can take their PADI certification before heading out to wonderful hidden spots. All in all, this new luxurious resort has plenty to offer all ages and succeeds in serving a delicious new proposition for an indulgent inclusive board basis.
