Fare Manu Experience at Varua Polynesian Spa - High in a canopy of palm trees, 20 feet above the ground, Fare Manu - our Bird House - sits like a cocoon between heaven and earth. Discover our legendary couples spa suite with breathtaking views and take flight while you share a moment of unique relaxation with a partner. Begin with an outdoor ritual on your private terrace to awaken the body's energy and calm your soul. Once inside the comfort of the bird's nest, a combination of traditional Polynesian treatments and the Queen's sacred bath will have you reborn.
