Sleep Soundly at Atmosphere Resort and Spa
Welcome to paradise. Atmosphere Resort and Spa is the kind of boutique luxury retreat that makes travelling as memorable for the accommodation as it is for the destination.
Set on a former coconut plantation, the resort is a green oasis peering out across the shimmering Bohol Sea. A clutch of thatched cottages studs the grounds, enveloped by tropical gardens and a canopy of palm trees.
The rooms feature a king-size bed with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen, outdoor bathroom with rain shower and a private daybed or hammock. Wander down to the pool (there are four to choose from), order a cocktail at the bar, slink into a daybed and set your watch to island time. Just don’t get too comfortable – there’s lots of diving to be done!
Resort Features include:
- 4.5 Star Resort and Spa
- Beachfront property
- House reef
- Swimming pool
- Multiple restaurants and bars
- Spa centre
- Yoga lessons
No one goes hungry at Atmosphere, and the chefs know divers sure can work up an appetite. Beachside at Blue Restaurant is where you’ll come to refuel, starting with a sumptuous buffet and cooked-to-order breakfast, followed by all-day fine dining. Feast on delicious local signature dishes, such as crispy pork pata (leg), seafood curry or whole steamed snapper, or choose something light from the healthy living menu. Nibble on finger food at the poolside bar, get a caffeine and pasty fix at the coffee shop, and enjoy a candlelit beach barbecue, sinking your toes into the sand as you dine on whole-roasted pig served with a side of ocean breeze.
As a health professional, you should know the benefits of mind, body and spirit therapies better than anyone. So don’t deprive yourself of a decadent spa treatment during your stay. The award-winning Sanctuary Spa features four outdoor treatment pavilions set amid a tranquil tropical garden with meandering streams, ponds and a heated therapy pool. Bliss out with a warm bamboo or lava shell massage (like hot stones but with tiger clam shells), or try a floating Watsu water massage. Find a different kind of Zen at a yoga class in the open-air treetops pavilion, work out under the mango trees in the outdoor Warrior Gym, or explore the local area on a guided mountain bike trail.
Sustainable tourism and giving back to the local communities that host us is a core focus of Unconventional Conventions. Atmosphere champions this cause by supporting various community projects under the Gives Forward program. Since 2011, the Atmosphere Soup Kitchen (ASK) has been serving nutritious lunches for 80 impoverished school children in Dumaguete to encourage them to stay in school. The program also helps provide an income for their mothers, many of whom resorted to scavenging through rubbish dumps to make a living. The women have learnt how to create jewellery using recycled paper beads, which has evolved into a fair trade business, Lumago. See their handiwork in the boutique and pick up a souvenir. You can also volunteer at ASK during your stay or make a donation.
Deluxe Suites look out over the lush green lawn and tropical gardens to the Sanctuary Spa beyond. With the sound of running water vivid from each hammock or day bed, relaxation is a must. A desk, widescreen TV and wireless internet will keep you connected or you can disconnect and submerse yourself in the rain shower within the natural surroundings of your own private outside pocket garden. Each suite has a California King as standard but twin share is also an option.
If you prefer the luxury of a spacious lounge with a dining area and a fully fitted kitchen, the Garden Apartments are the perfect choice for you. Sliding doors take you seamlessly out onto the veranda with its outdoor lounging area and hammock and each apartment boasts a master bedroom with floor to ceiling picture window. A large, luxurious semi-outdoor bathroom with a solid mahogany vanity counter with “his” and “hers” sinks and a spacious walk-in closet are also part of the amenities.
