Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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...

My wife and I ever since dreamed to spend our honeymoon in the maldives. Our dream came ture by Varu staff. Since we step foot on the airport, an agent was waiting for us. Everything went smooth then we went for a speed boat ride for 40 mins to the resort.

When we arrived they welcomed us with tradition music of drums and a receptionist called Dina who has a great role in making our stay very comfy welcomed us with a refreshing drink and then drove us around the resort and to our villa, which she choosed in a very nice and private location as per my request.
Our room got cleaned twice a day by an artist called Mangal he did a really great effort to decorate our room every day. He pampered us every night with nice gesture left on the bed. Literally, every night! Also he made our bath tup decoration twice during our stay!

As for the food we really loved the variety we found at Lime&Chilli and the hospitality there from all the staff and specifically Soukaina and Yayu.

For speciality dining we tried charcoal, which I highly recommend as a first option. Also we tried Kagee which idea is about to serve authentic maldivian food!

One more thing I would like to mention is Varu Plan. It saved us a lot of headache choosing between this and that. They really know what you want and for sure it will be there in the plan for an amazing headache free experience.

Overall I would like to thank Varu for bringing our dream honeymoon to life.

I hope one day we can go back again!

A vacation of a lifetime! VARU by Atmosphere was an amazing place to spend on one of our bucket list vacays. The Staff was accommodating, friendly, attentive, and made our stay exceptional.
Malek, our housekeeping staff was the BEST. Paying attention to detail was his specialty and he was kind, and helped to make celebrating our anniversary very special! This all inclusive resort had excellent food and had great variety and a great selection of adult beverages. Was great value for our stay. We stayed in a beach villa with a pool and the pictures are just like what you experience! The sunsets are divine and the water beautiful. Snorkeling was good and our jet ski excursion was great! Seeing turtles, sand bar and lots of beautiful fish. Just remember to bring all your necessities like sunscreen, water shoes because if you have to purchase on-site it is pricey.
We highly recommend....This place did not disappoint!

Our trip was nothing short of exceptional! The hospitality and service from the staff was fantastic. They could not do enough for you and were always smiling, happy and approachable. Even before arrival they had your itinerary planned for you and were happy to accommodate any changes. Special thanks to our housekeeping staff, Limon, who beautifully decorated our bed and bath for a special memory for us (which made me cry!!) He came twice per day everyday to check our amenities/water supply and our room was spotless the whole time - he couldn't have been more helpful.

The Lime & Chill restaurant is beautiful and clean and again the staff are excellent however the selection of food was quite repetitive and personally we would not describe it as premium quality. Thankfully we had dinner at the 3 restaurants, Charcoal, Nu & Kaage, which made up for this. The a la carte options were fantastic and the food/service was delicious. Thank you to Hillol and Priyanka for their wonderful service. The chefs are amazing too who came out to personally greet us also which we loved!

We spent 5 nights at Varu and loved the variety of activities, excursions and spa options. We had water villa with pool which we cannot recommend enough!! The island itself is simply stunning and so peaceful.

Thank you to all the staff at Varu. We left feeling very relaxed and extremely happy. We had a dream last trip just us 2!

Warmest thanks,

Pamela & Ben

Hmmmm there is sooo much to say… but the best word to describe it would be : FANTASTIC.

The location itself obviously is mind blowing… the beaches, crystal blue water, golden sand… heaven on earth.

We were staying in one of their water villa surrounded by the big blue. These villas will allow you to enjoy a beer on your own terrasse while sitting on the front row for the sunset.

The installations are mainly made wood with modern features. Everything is super clean. Rooms are made 1 to 2 times per day : morning and evening: while out for dinner, the staff will literally prepare your bed for sleep.

The main restaurant Lime & Chili offers daily various and delicious food.

During the day you can schedule all types of water sports (snorkeling adventures, standing boards, jet ski etc…)

The Bay Rouge bar offers a superb relaxing atmosphere with swimming pool and cozy chairs. I recommend the “Maldivian Twist” cocktail.

Put simply, it was dream vacation.

Special thanks to the following staff:

My husband and I just got back from a 5 night start at Varu for our Honeymoon, and everything was even better than we could have imagined. We had high expectations based on the reviews we read prior to booking our stay, and all of those expectations were exceeded. Upon arrival we were greeted by Shujau, our concierge and butler, who gave us the tour and explained everything about the property and our stay. Our villa was absolutely beautiful and Mengal, our housekeeper made sure it was stocked with fresh towels and cleaned twice a day, he also added a special touch on the night of our honeymoon dinner with flower petals and a cute little alligator made from the towels.
Food: we are not shallot “buffet people” side the quality is typically not great but the buffet here was out of this world. Plenty of variety of all types of foods, also plenty of healthy choices as well, nothing tasted mass produced or processed. The food at the restaurants was also outstanding, charcoal was definitely out favorite restaurant, you can tell the chef takes great pride is his work. Also I’d like to highlight our servers who remembered our drink orders and were so attentive at each meal, Azzam, Elouise, Subh and so many more. Also Sandeep at the Bayrouge pool and beach bar was amazing. The bartenders know how to make just about anything you could ask for, Tul made us several of his own drink recipes which were all delicious. The level of service and attentiveness at this resort is unmatched, the managers Bishnu and Pablo both checked in with us daily to ensure we had no special requests and to ask how our stay was going. The sunset cruise and snorkeling were also great excursions that were included in the package. Shujau made booking all the restaurant visits, spa, and excursions effortless, all we had to do was show up. The entire property is so beautiful from the pool, to the beaches and villa pools and restaurant views. It was a honeymoon we will never forget and can’t thank the staff enough for making it so special.

Superb experience. The resort is wonderful with staff constantly and attentive to your need . Always with great discretion . A special welcome we received from mrs Krisztina . The rooms are extremely large and spacious with an oversized bedroom that smells new and full of high quality products. The experience in water villa with private pool is unforgettable. Also without the pool all the villa have a direct access to the sea . All inclusive in the real sense because everywhere and every time the staff ask you if you would like something. Only 40 minutes with speed boat from Male international airport. Every day there are many activities . Not to be missed snorkeling and fishing sunset .There are four different restaurants really good . Everywhere peace e tranquility reigns . The villa are so nice that it's a problem to go out . I am not able to find a defect. Indeed one yes : will leave next Saturday

We just came back from our special family vacation in Varu by Atmosphere. It’s a very comfortable and beautiful place. We were staying in water villa where Jay made our stay extremely comfortable by cleaning, replacing mini bar and creating interesting and cute animals by towels. Thank you very much JAY!!!
The Bay Rouge Bar was nice and the guy Sandeep was very friendly with the kids and gave everything to fulfill our wishes.
The kitchen from Lime and Chili was very delicious there we met Pryinaka the manager of the Charocal restaurant. She was very friendly, too and made a really romantic dinner at that restaurant under the stars. Also, we were impressed by the manager of Kaage restaurant we had a lunch there. The food was delicious and made the special plate for the kid as he does not eat maldivian food. The manager was one of the most hospitable staff that we had a chance to see.( I forgot her name)

The complimentary spa massages made our stay more special.

A little improvement which is good to be made is to arrange a food and beverage for the departure guests until their stay on the resort. We were with a kid and had to leave the resort at 4 p.m. so after 12 we did not have any meals and drinks included. We were offered to pay 90$ per person if we want to have a meal at buffet restaurant only. This left a little bad taste. This is our 3rd time being in Maldives and for the first time managers did not think for this.
Thank you Varu! We hope to see you again!

Travelled here with daughters in January. The speedboat transfer was in very rough seas and after 50 minutes from the airport to Varu arrived not feeling very well. The staff especially Olga quickly assisted and from then on were able to enjoy the holiday.
We spent most of our days at our family beach villa with pool with close access to the beautiful beach and sea (just needed a little tlc on the decking around our pool). The mini fridge and wine cooler was a great benefit for us and restocked daily. There was also a coffee maker and kettle in the room.
We wished we had a full length mirror in the room as a vanity hand held mirror wasn’t suitable when getting ready. Also the hairdryer flex was very short that pulled out of the plug socket when used and with no plugs in the bathroom where there was a mirror above the sink made it difficult, so advise to take your own hairdryer. (You don’t need plug adapters as Uk plugs fit).
Our room attendant Nafis made our holiday very special from the day we arrived to departing with special touches and surprises for us. He is a great member of staff at Varu and you will be very lucky if you get him.
Monu the chef and Sovan in the lime and chilli restaurant were exceptional making special dishes to accommodate my daughter who is gluten free. We looked forward to the gala night on a Friday here with many Indian dishes to taste. Michelle, Diba and Subh always on hand to welcome us and assist.
Our favourite restaurant was Charcoal. The food was excellent here one of the nicest steaks I’ve tasted.
Bay Rouge - at busy periods could do with more staff however Priyanka always tried to accommodate and help and was the most friendly member working here. It would have been nice on a couple of evenings to have a live band/themed night for entertainment at Bay Rouge rather than at lime and chilli as not everyone wants a singer whilst eating your evening meal and people dancing around the tables whilst you’re eating.
Water sports - this is a third party supplier but found their prices very expensive.
Elena Spa - visited here on four occasions, excellent massages, ambience and surroundings. Wonderful staff especially Ita.
Visited other islands where the sand is a little denser on the footpaths and been able to walk barefoot however here was sparse and sharp in places needing shoes. We packed beach shoes however didn’t need them as the water is so clear.
A great stay, the staff were amazing. Lovely speaking to the manager, Phillipe and his wife daily. Huge thanks again to Olga, Nafis , monu and Sovan for making our stay very memorable.

Having never been the Maldives before, I feel like we chose very well. I always assumed that photos of the Maldives were at least a little photoshopped but I was blown away by how breathtakingly real the views are - a complete paradise of turquoise water, white sand and blue sky. I could not take a bad picture of this place and it brings a new meaning to the phrase 'no filter required'! We stayed for 7 nights.

The resort itself was beautiful and wonderfully laid back which was exactly what you need for a relaxing week away. We chose the overwater villa with pool and this proved to be a perfect choice. The privacy and luxury put us at ease straight away and our room was well taken care of for the whole week by Janaka who was amazing, always leaving the room spotless and adding all the little touches that reminded us of what a luxury we were enjoying.
It was my birthday while we were there and he, completely to my surprise, decorated the room and left a bath filled and decorated with flowers. That is not to mention how great the turndown service was the rest of the time.

The room had a great selection of amenities and the wine, snacks and minibar were restocked every day.

The buffet restaurant always had a good variety of food to try and the beverage selection was excellent too. We tried all 3 of the a la carte restaurants and, whilst all excellent, I think Kaarge was the highlight. This was the Maldivian restaurant. Having never experienced Maldivian food before, I have to say it was a delight and there was so much to try! This was made even better by the surroundings and the fact that the place made such an effort to give a Maldivian experience. It made our last night even more magical.

The one standout for me was just how relaxed and friendly all the staff were and how laid back they made the whole experience. Nothing was ever any trouble for them and all the staff are very invested in making sure the guests feel taken care of. Yayu at Kaarge and Elouise at Nu were both excellent examples of that and such good hosts. Also we saw Cheki, Fathuhee and Priyanka a lot and they were always so helpful and friendly.
And finally Sidarth the manager was also a huge help, was very flexible and helped us so much with our check out day due to the strange flight times offered by Etihad. He really helped us to end our holiday on such a relaxed note. If anyone asks me where to go in the Maldives, I will definitely say Varu.

The hotel does offer movies on the beach, however I think they charge for this. With regards to the entertainment there is none in the day, however you can go snorkelling, spa, water sports (non watersports is free). There is also a dj playing chill out music around the pool at about 4pm. In the evening so far there has been singers one night and a drum show the other. 2 nights there was no entertainment

Sheesa is available at this resort. You really don’t need bycicles on this island, everything is within a 5-10 mins walk. You can walk around the island in 20 mins
