OBLU by Atmosphere

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Renowned for its quality and service, the OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengeli brings with it vibrant and refreshing interiors and design and a new island resort concept. You will benefit from the latest in hotel luxuries alongside the timeless treats a Maldivian island guarantees. Treats like diving at the 5-star PADI dive centre, snorkelling in crystal waters, relaxing by a choice of swimming pools (including an adults-only pool in a secluded area of the island) and strolling on sugar white sands that have barely seen a footprint. In a quiet spot on the less-developed northeast rim of the atoll, the OBLU has an exotic and unique house reef, home to pelagic fish, just metres from its shoreline, so it’s a good job the use of snorkelling gear’s included in your all-inclusive plan.

We had such an amazing time at the Oblu select!!! The grounds are beautiful! And what impressed us the most was how super friendly the staff are!! We had amazing adventures and left with friendships The package we purchased through Emirates was all inclusive including snorkeling and fishing adventures. We paid for one snorkeling adventure that guaranteed seeing sea turtles in their natural eating enviornemnt anf it was SOOO Incredible to see at least 10 turtles ALL Different sizes. The cost for that excursion was on the lower side The Spa was reasonably priced and amazing service. Beautiful setting There was exceptional staff that included Marwa -our Hostess that greeted and took amazing care of us the entire time. Suresh was one of the head chefs that was so atttentive with my gluten allergies and made sure to guide me through the foods I could eat AS WELL AS made me Gluten Free dessert each night. Read less

They don't have lagoons but still their water bungalows are very good with pool and gives you complete privacy overlooking the ocean. Read less
