a beautiful, natural peaceful island with a fantastic house reef. The wonderful staff are the friendliest I have met in The Maldives. I have been to Helengeli 7 times. It is now closing on September 30th and being taken over andwill be 'luxurified' instead of 50 rooms there will be 120. Helengeli as it is now is becoming an increasingly... More

This was our fifth trip to Maldives and our first visit to Helengeli. We choose resorts based on size (small) and whether they have a house reef (it does) and price because we can't afford the top places. All we need is good snorkelling, good food and a reasonably quiet resort, and Helengeli pretty much delivers. House reef coral was... More

Helengeli island is located in the North Male Atoll, fairly far away enough from Male so it gives it a secluded location. It is close to the very luxury One & Only Reethi Rah resort, so it shares most of its waters. Getting there can be exahusting, but it is very much like most resorts in the Maldives. As a... More

The 3-day stay was excellent, with lots of wonderful memories and discoveries. The bungalow design was distinctive with the bathroom located at the open courtyard. The service received was nice and people were very friendly. Best thing here is the security and freedom for tourist (night walk, fishing) Awesome food, and snorkelling experience was great. The only thing to say... More

My husband and I had 2 wonderful weeks at Helengeli in the Maldives, the first week with friends and the second week on our own in June 2014. The island is only small with just 50 beach Bungalows so it was very relaxing. The people were lovely, food superb and diving/snorkeling brilliant. Sadly the island is closing to be taken... More

I will focus this review on the all-inclusive package as we struggled to find information on this before we went to Helengeli. We stayed one week in Helengeli during March 2014. We had the superior bungalow on the tip of the island and would recommend it to everybody. It is worth the little bit extra you are paying for it.... More

It was my first time in Maldives and we picked a hotel as per reviews, my family has been in maldives before. The resort is nice, because the sturcuture is still natural and the beach is available for all the resort guests, no 'private' spots. The resort is small, which makes it very cozy for the stay. The food is... More
