I LOVE the service, everyone seems nice and friendly. And food, yes, specially the local food. The “kaage” restaurant, we ordered the fihunu, hedhika and mugu soup, all dishes are perfect. But some establishment (water sports, bar, etc) open too late (10AM), I think earlier would better.

Hotel's Favourite
Simply the best ! The effort and work put in by all the staff here to make this place as fabulous as it is is clear.. From the Manager (Phillippe) to every member of the team are all oustanding (Spercifically Janani in Lime and Chili - Dishnika in Bay rouge..but honestly everyone was fantantistic)... I would also like to make a special mention to the Manager in Lime & Chili (who was also the Pastor!) - who's name I stupidly didnt note down...who made every visit here feel as special as the first. The accomodation was superb and the gentleman servicing our room was again, lovely...

One of the standout features of the room was the technology. The bathroom was equally impressive, with a large rain shower and luxurious bathrobes and towels. The toiletries provided were of high quality and added to the overall feeling of luxury and indulgence.

Amazing food. Be carefull with the spices, ask them which dishes are "safe" to eat for those who are not used to eating spicy foods. Aagy was really helpfull and kind! Would definitely recommend. Certainly it adds a special experience for the Varu Resort.

Great experience, beautiful resort and truly all inclusive. Great staff, Malek especially went over and above on our daughters birthday by making the room look amazing. Only thing that could be improved is the booking system of activities, I’d rather just do it myself than rely on someone else as it wasn’t the most efficient.

We had the loveliest time trying the local Maldivian Cuisine. Our server made some amazing recommendations and told us so much about the food and how it's prepared too! The Kopi Fai starter was just amazing, also coconut honey might be my new favourite thing! Highly recommend to anyone wanting to try the Maldivian Cuisine.

This was our 2nd visit to Varu (the first in 2020 just after it had opened). The whole island has matured, however the sea life was a little disappointing as were the snorkelling trips (we have been to other resorts where the reefs were much better). We stayed in a Water Villa which was kept clean and tidy by our room attendant Nasyu and our fridge was kept well stocked by Moosa. Lime & Chilli The food in this outlet was delicious (but we like curry) and we would like to thank Ritka, Margaret, Sonu, Schb, Aneef and Layla for serving us with a smile. Maldivian Restaurant We noticed from out first visit and this has now been upgraded to a "proper" restaurant and the food is just as delicious and our server Athiaf was great. Nu Fantastic food cooked by Hussain and we had great service from Schb and Christina. In our opinion the star of Nu has to be Ashila. Charcoal Delicious 3 course meal served by Nisha, Nhalia and Hussain. Bay Rouge Very slow service unless Ashila was behind the bar, however all the servers were polite and friendly so a big thank you to Nisha, Izaam and Shah and others whose names I can't remember. Spa/Gym Can't remember the names of the ladies at the spa but we enjoyed the very relaxing massages. Winston at the gym was always there early in the morning to hand over the tennis racquets. Management were very visible throughout our stay and rectified any niggles, a big thank you to Heni who managed to sort out the hottest curry ever for my husband and arranging the wine for the room. We enjoy the brand Atmosphere Hotels (we've stayed in many)and whilst we had a fantastic holiday we probably won't go back as we've been twice and there are many other resorts to try.

We stayed for a total of 6 nights, great location with plenty to do. View from our Overwater villa was amazing, staff were always friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived to our departure. Malek was a great housekeeper who was willing to help and assist us in any way possible going above and beyond what was required. Staff on tours made our experience exciting and safe in the ocean on additional tours. Charcoal dinner had an amazing fillet mignon cooked to perfection. The all inclusive package meant that we never had to think about costs or budgeting and we just got to enjoy ourselves for the duration of our stay.

Stay for 4 nights after our tour round Sri Lanka, from arriving at the airport to getting through check in on return to UK, the service was brilliant, met by rep and taken to cafe to wait for boat to take us to Island, boat arrived quicker than we were told, on the boat to island you get a bottle of water, chocolate and there is free wifi, so you can start the check-in process before arriving at island, on arriving at island you are welcomed by the general manager and all the relevant department heads, you are then led to reception with a Maldivian drum parade where you meet your host (ours was Arsham), while our cases were taken to the villa by boat. Arsham was extremely helpful throughout our stay, he provide is WhatsApp number so if we needed anything we could just message him and it would get sorted. As this was our first time in the Maldives we had no idea what to expect. In the 4 days we were there they had already booked us into 2 of the 3 speciality restaurants, and onto 2 evening trips included in the plan (one a sunset fishing trip and the other a stargazing trip), both were fantastic. The food in the main buffet dining room was the best we have had in an all inclusive holiday, wonderful choice and always hot, the service in the restaurant was superb. The Nu Restaurant which is a Mediterranean themed restaurant was outstanding, situated on one of the jetties you see fish and sharks swimming around. The Kaage restaurant which is a Maldivian themed restaurant was even better, the welcome you get is wonderful, a welcome drink of local juices, then you have the option to wear the local dress, food and service is amazing. You can go on as many free snorkelling trips as you like, they have 2 a day. The room is serviced twice a day in the morning and evening (turn down service with chocolates on the pillow. There is a mini bar and a wine fridge in the room both stocked daily, plenty of water provided and is also readily available at the bar and restaurant. Check out is simple and straight forward, as our flight was not until 9pm we opted for a late check with inclusive plan at an additional cost, well worth it. The cases are collected about 30 minutes before the boat leaves and you check out at the same time.
