A good house reef is our main reason for choosing a resort as we go out 2-4 times per day and spend time exploring the house reef (you don’t get this time to explore on excursions). We both love snorkelling and have previous visited Ihuru, Baros and Filitheyo as well as other places worldwide. This review concentrates mainly on the...

We visited Oblu mid Feb for 10 nights and were thoroughly impressed from start to finish. We are Maldives converts!! We had a quick transfer from the airport, we were helped straight into the boat with just one other couple and were immediately given lemon scented cold flannels and bottles of water (and a Mars chocolate!) I was concerned about...

We've just returned from our honeymoon at OBLU and all I can say is WOW! From the moment we arrived at the airport by a very friendly OBLU staff member, we were taken to a coffee shop in the airport and waited just 15 minutes for another couple to arrive before boarding the speedboat. I've read in a previous review...

We stayed here for 3 nights before joining a diving boat. We wanted somewhere close to Male to limit wasted time. The reviews seemed good so decided to stay.

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
