The services, the attentions, the respect, the kindness, the politeness, one of the top notch services I ever had in my life, from the staff to even the fish (metaphorically) speaking there's no comparison. The place itself is undescriable, Its a truly paradise.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We decided to come to maldives and check out a few islands and started off with this resort. Initially the idea was start with decent hotel and finish off with the good ones so basically we thought Varu at first wasn’t any good because it was the least we payed for any of the hotels. I’ve never done a review before but throughout our experience we thought we needed to share this. Hands down such a lovely resort, the food is 10/10 plus the staff are so warm and welcoming! The water sport staff ever so cool and the massage people are magical! We also had a all inclusive and stayed 5 days
Stayed 4 nights in Dec 2020
