Varu Spa at Kandolhu Island is designed with the upside down dhoni style with a wooden beam roof like the island duplex villas, and when we arrived for our VOYAger Total Massage Journey, we were quickly met by the sweet staff, who took perfectly care of the check-in. Varu means energy in Dhivehi, the original Maldivian languange. Energy is what you will get after a treatment at the Varu Spa, and feeling in balance will make your more resistent to stress and fatigue.
We arrived in good time before our treatment at the Varu Spa, which is a little hidden in the heart of the island, and after the quick registration, we headed towards the changing rooms. We started out in the relaxation area, where Varu spa offers space for you to hang out before or after your treatment. Here is a cold and warm pool, sauna and steam room. A perfect place to spend a little time and unwind before you head towards one of the 3 couples treatment rooms.
Varu Spa uses VOYA products, which are seaweed based products from Ireland. They made our skin feel very smooth and renewed. VOYA is recommended for those who are over worked, stresset or simply seeking an effective natural detoxifying process for the skin. The products are also used in the villas of the resort, so even if you do not visit the spa, you will still feel the magic of irish seaweed.
After a while at the relaxation area we were escorted to the treatment rooms on the 1. floor. The rooms up here are spacious, with twin treatment beds. Air-conditioned and the relaxing music was playing as we entered the room and the therapists helped us onto the beds.
The treatment – VOYAger Total Massage Journey – was a combination of different wellknown massage techniques from Thailand, Bali, Sweden etc. The movements replicates the flow of the ocean, combining both gentle and stimulating pressure, and after the treatment we both felt very relaxed and free from any pain or aches. The perfect start on a dream holiday.
