We travelled here on our honeymoon and stayed a week. Overall a fantastic stay, staff were friendly and despite being a small island there was plenty to do. Free snorkeling equipment to everyone and the in house reef is truly spectacular. We stayed in a deluxe beach villa, honestly I'm not sure it's better than the normal beach villa, both... More

It was my first trip to Maldives with my wife and after a careful research, we chose OBLU. When we arrived in Male' International airport, we were received by OBLU staffs with warm welcoming. It took us 50minutes to OBLU by speed boat and the whole journey was fun. The island wasn't big but looked quite and clean. We stayed... More

Just checking out of OBLU. Had a great time. The staff is really courteous and helpful. An hour away by speedboat, it has an easy access to the Male airport. Nothing fancy about the place, very quiet, clean and rustic. Just the kind of place where you want to relax and forget about the outside world. Great snorkeling spots, with... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Helengeli Island, located in North Male Atoll, renowned for its exotic House Reef, gets a full make-over! Opening on 01st November 2015, the island would be re-launched as OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengli and will showcase a trendy & vibrant Four Star superior resort! OBLU is a sub-brand of the up-and-coming Indian Ocean brand – Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts. The living spaces at the fully refurbished OBLU at Helengeli present contemporary design aesthetics whilst maintaining the quaint and cozy feel of an authentic Maldivian island holiday experience! To make it a complete package holiday, the resort would be offering a best in class All-Inclusive experience too! The resort offers a fantastic selection of world cuisine at the spacious main restaurant, The Spice, complete with live cooking stations and theme nights! Just Grill, the specialty restaurant, offers fresh seafood and meat on the grill surrounded by beautiful ocean views. Helen’s Bar is the hub of the island with comfortable seating, serene ocean views and a large exotic pool for guests to enjoy! Other facilities include an equipped gymnasium and recreation center, as well as a 24-7 Island boutique shop! The unique feature of Helengeli House Reef, is that it lies right at a primary entrance to the Atoll, in the middle of a Channel (channel on both sides of the island). Hence, fish life especially Pelagic (Predatory BIG fish like Sharks, Rays, Barracudas, Jackfish) are aplenty around the Reef, year-around! Helengeli House reef is probably one of the best locations in the Maldives for a perfect & exotic Channel Diving experience! An absolute highlight of the Helengeli House reef is the lobster cave at about 12 meters in depth, wherein over 50 lobsters reside! During a night dive, you can observe them swimming along the reef, looking for food. The entire reef comes alive at night with shrimp, nudibranchs, snails and crabs. In addition to the wonderful House reef dives, two of the top dive spots near Helengeli island are the Helengeli Thila and Helengeli Corner – just a few minutes away by boat. There are over 30 other dive sites within a 30 minute – 1 hour range including three ship wrecks! Operated by Atmosphere Aqua Club, the OBLU Dive center would be a full-fledged PADI certified center, with multi-lingual experienced dive personnel and equipped with modern equipment, technology and dive gear. Some legends just get better! ... more   less
