The hotel

Newly re-opening and updated in 2023 OBLU NATURE Helengeli by SENTIDO, welcomes back its guests with a delightful vibrant look and feel… Renowned for its quality and service, the OBLU NATURE Helengeli by SENTIDO brings with it enticing 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, OBLU NATURE Helengeli by SENTIDO 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, not to mention one a la carte dining experience at Just Grill or Raga Route for every 4 night stay, both if staying 8 nights and selected excursions and activities. Best of all... It's only 50 minutes away from the airport on a complimentary speedboat transfer.

We managed to see a variety of fishes, sharks, turtle… The food was fabulous in all restaurants Spice, Raga route, Just grill we dined. The dinner at Just grill was the most memorable for us, the arrangements was special dining beach side with music of the waves. The kids club was very useful, since we travelled with our daughter we could leave her under the good care of the OBLU staff and have some memorable snorkelling experiences. Thank you! Read less
