OBLU SELECT at Sangeli

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

They dare to be different on Sangeli island, on Malé Atoll’s north-west perimeter — where creative minds have concocted a dazzling design hotel that’s a far cry from the simplistic rustic retreats of ‘old Maldives’. Edgy features make it feel fabulously fresh and innovative, but there’s still a nod to authentic Maldives in your super-spacious beach-skimming villa. The main Sangeli Island and the smaller adults-only island, One Banyan, are linked by a string of overwater villas — you can amble between the spa, gym, dining venues, kids’ club, and recreation and water sports hubs at your leisure. And, the premium all-inclusive Serenity Plan provides complimentary treats along the way, including a daily mini-bar refill, two fine dining experiences a week, unlimited drinks, and selected excursions, activities and water sports.
