So I booked 8 nights at Varu, but unfortunately they could not accommodate me during that time period. They did transfer me to one of their sister resorts- Oblu Select at Sangeli. The person who I was in contact with was very prompt and made the transition seem less. The person from Varu contacted the resort and I had no problems with my boat transfer or my check in. My experience at Oblu Select was great and definitely an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. Thankful to Varu for the transfer but I hope to visit Varu one day. My rating is primarily for the service I received and the accommodation they were able to make for me.
