VARU by Atmosphere
Maldives, Indian Ocean
Imagine this - waking up in a private piece of paradise in the Indian Ocean, surrounded by palm trees and soft white sand. You don't need to imagine that when you're at VARU. But it's not just about spending your days relaxing in the warm sun by the pool or on the beach, you can spend your days trying out the action-filled water sports, and with unlimited snorkelling you can take a dive and see the wonderful sea life as many times as you like. All of that is topped off with a choice of restaurants, a luxury spa, and that's before you step into your own private villa, complete with your own pool.
