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.

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.

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...

Ok - this is a luxury hotel, with all the premium extras you would expect - In room mini bar, home made chocolates on your pillow and and …. But I wish I’d read this before I booked …The staff are great ! BUT it’s not the Maldives as you’d expect … there’s no palm trees over hanging the beach… there’s no reef to snorkel on… in fact their own staff said it’s the worst island to snorkel on … so the island do put on free snorkel trips to counter this … a great touch … some things that are noteworthy …. Gym area was amazing Staff were first class The spa was amazing The food and bespoke dining was incredible ! They really looked after us when my son cut himself on a tile in the pool - the onsite doctor is superb Things that I don’t like 1. The poor beaches, lack of snorkelling …. It really is why we visit here so often - stones and coral and and and 2. The CRAZY prices for trips - 150 dollars to go snorkel … 200 for dolphins ! This has been 50 or 75 in other islands 3. Checked out of our room - did not leave till 7pm - and they tried to charge me for lunch ! I was less than impressed so the charge was waived 4. Felt a little commercial and Manmade 5. Constant dance music All DAY by the pool - no chilled Bob Marley vibes here 5. Poor access for anyone with mobility issues into the sea around your villa If you’ve booked already ! Have a blast and enjoy it (it’s still paradise) - if not do some research as there’s amazing islands out there with better beaches

The food is incredible. Kage has the most authentic experience and Aagy (the waitress) is excellent. We ordered starters, main course and deserts, all of which were fantastic. The weather was great, as were cocktails and wine. 10/10 experience.

From the welcome at the airport to stepping on the island to returning back everything was beautifully organized and arranged. The view is spectacular from every sight you see. The excursions are nicely planned and a lot fun. The theme food cuisines are mouth watering and a different experience altogether. A special thanks and shout-out goes to Ms. Mei and her entire Varu team for the wonderful hospitality and always making us feel like home. A special mention to Mr. Firey our island host and Ms. Heni, F&B Manager and Jay, for their warmth and assistance always.

Two sisters, very well travelled across the globe. This experience was one of our best. The GM Mei and her staff, esp Heni, create amazing moments of joy. It’s a smaller island so no waiting for buggies. Maybe an adults only pool for the morning rush, oh and the best snorkling right at ur door, literally!

Me and my mum booked into the Spa at Elena Varu in the Maldives and from the welcome to the amazing massage, it was truly wonderful. I would say it’s the best and most relaxed massage we have had around the world. We would like to praise the staff there and special thank you to Kinzang, Lei and Anjli who were all amazing. A true credit to the hotel and spa. They were polite and greeted us with smiles. Thanks so much once again

The most wonderful stay here at Varu! Everything we could have wanted and more. Shamima always looked after us and kept our room spotless! Firey was also a great guy, getting us involved in the excursions and being informative over WhatsApp. Wonderful food, one of the best steaks I ever had eas at Charcoal! Everything and everyone were simply amazing! Until next time Varu...

The resort is absolutely beautiful!! The vegetation on the island is lush, the beaches are gorgeous. We had a Villa over the water with a pool. The deck had a ladder to get down to the sea. It was about chest deep at the bottom of the ladder. I walked way out from the villa and the depth didn’t change much. The water was crystal clear. The room was perfect. We dined at Charcoal and had some of the best steaks we have had since living in the UAE for the past six years. The Nu restaurant has an amazing menu. The food was fantastic. The baked lobster in the appetizers was delicious! Don’t miss this dish. Our other meals were at the Lime and Chili. It’s. Unfettered style meals with something for everyone. Bar Rouge is a great bar, it’s on the beach and has a fresh water pool as well. Drinks were tasty and refreshing. The bartenders make great drinks and make great pours for the drinks. We had a mobility issue while we were there and the staff was beyond helpful. Julia picked us up at our villa and took us anywhere we wanted to go. The medical staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Our room attendant, Malak, was sooo helpful. He serviced our room twice a day and made sure the room was clean and tidy as well as keeping the refrigerator and the wine cooler stocked with drinks and snacks. You won’t regret staying there.
