OBLU NATURE Helengeli

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Renowned for its quality and service, the OBLU NATURE 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.

My wife and I are so glad we chose this resort for our honeymoon. The property is exquisite. Breathtaking views from both the beach villa and water villa, great food at the main resort restaurant called The Spice and amazing ambience & drinks at the poolside bar called Helen's. The all-inclusive package with complimentary offerings ensured we were lacking for nothing - right from a massage at Elena spa, a sunset fishing expedition (everyone caught a fish!), a delightful floating breakfast served at the private water villa - to the snorkeling equipment available for free for everyone - our experience could really not have been better. There are multiple pools available for a dip or a serious swim for those looking for exercise. The gym is also well-equipped and sunrise yoga was refreshing! The coral reefs surrounding the property are truly the best thing about this place - what a variety of sea life we witnessed! The sunrise and sunset views were mesmerising to say the least. We even left a prized possession at the property, only realizing this once we had departed from the resort and en-route to the airport, but the resort staff ensured we got it before our flight took off. Really cannot thank them enough for this :) We have never had a more relaxing and enriching vacation. Highly recommended. Read less

Couldn't have asked more for our vacation! Every element from arriving to accomodation to services to facilities was just perfect. Villa was nice (beach villa), clean and calm and our (almost private) housekeeper Kawsir did an exellent job. Overall, all the staff was friendly and they all offer us an exellent service. Helengeli is a divers paradise (snorkelers as well). House reef is very beautiful (sharks, octupuses, turtles and lot of other colorful fishes), and other great diving places are "just around a corner". The staff at the diving center was very friendly and professional and safety was always priority number 1. If you want to relax, enjoy great food and you love underwater marine life, this is a perfect choise for you. And we strongly recommend to take all inclusive option. Read less

Every element from accommodation to food to service to facilities is just perfect. The warmth and welcome from every member of staff is just excellent. It's a divers and snorkelers paradise with its own house reef whether you are a novice or an expert. Need I say any more? Yes, we will return when circumstances permit.
