    The trip was wonderful. We visited in June (rain season) for 5 days, with 2 days in the beach villa and 2 days in the water villa. There was rain during one midnight, not affecting any schedule. Sometimes, say several mornings, the ocean area at the water villas are not recommended for snorkeling (which is definitely what you want to do there). However, other beach areas would be open. We had a great time with our hostess, Rinki, who helped us out a lot throughout the entire journey on the island. Also the experience won't be that great without the assistance of the staffs, including Zara (the housekeeper), Marina, Teju (the restaurant servers); Sahaau (the snorkeling guide); Yami (the diving coach), and Mohammed (the watersports guide). I hope I got their names right!

    My husband and I went to this amazing resort for our honeymoon. It was an incredible experience! The staff was welcoming and kind. The beach and entire resort was spotlessly clean, and the rooms were cleaned twice a day. When we arrived and left by boat there was a man who serenaded the guests with his saxophone. The resort offered a lot of excursion options such as snorkelling, sunset fishing, a massage depending on how long you stayed, and free paddle boarding or kayaking. You could also go to the next door island that is connected by a long bridge. That is the family island and has what was at that time, the largest nightclub in the Maldives. My husband and I are both dairy and gluten free and the staff went above and beyond to cater to those needs. The chef would come to our table to verify our needs and by the third day they would always have special meals prepared for us. This included: gluten free pizza, pancakes, sushi, pasta, bread, etc. One of the chefs even made us cashew cheese! Something nobody with our dietary needs could have ever imaged. They even made us a dairy free and gluten free dessert everyday. It was incredible. While at the resort you get the option to partake in other special meals also. There is a foodtruck style evening, a special beach dinner, and, our favorite restaurant of all time: the under the sea BLU restaurant. All evening we could enjoy the fish and sharks swimming by the restaurant windows and the staff was incredibly sweet and professional. We will never forget this trip and the kindness of everyone that worked at OBLU. I'm sorry if I misspell some names, and I know I am missing many names but, a special thank you to our island host: Lisa, and her replacement on her day off: Mila. Huge thank you to the chefs: Samiran and others. The manager that was always available and working hard to set an amazing example for the staff: Sumeda. As well as, but not limited to the other staff members: Naahil, Setal, Jenny, Rachelle, Elin, and Ajaya. Thank you for the most amazing experience we could have never imagined! We hope to see you again some day. All the best to you!

    From the moment we arrived on the island we knew it was going to be a holiday of a lifetime, it was everything we expected and more. The staff at Lobigilli are fantastic, they really make the experience extra special. Particularly our incredible host, Mechelle who was always so helpful and kind. If we needed anything she was always happy to help & with the biggest smile. The food in Ylang Ylang is second to none with a wide range of options to cater for all. The restaurant staff were always so pleasant especially Alpi who went above and beyond for us on many occasions. Only blu underwater restaurant is definitely worth visiting, the food was outstanding and again service is what really made our experience one to remember. Oblu has a wide range of water sports available (some included on the lobi plan) All staff were really nice, particular shout out to Niiaf who was very pleasant & knowledgeable. The resort itself is beautiful and well maintained. The swing bar by the pool was very relaxing with live music each evening. Again, service here was second to none. Would highly recommend this magical resort, hospitality is the best we’ve had! Hope to return in the future

    It was our 2nd trip back to Maldives, and we chose OBLU Lobigili again. It was as we remembered when we last came in June 2023. The service crew has been impeccable in their service. The food in Ylang Ylang restaurant is top notch. Everybody is kist so attentive. The island is only for adults, so the atmosphere here is serene and peaceful. Highly recommend if you seek some quiet time. Special mention to our island hostess Rinki for always being extra attentive to our needs, and always checking in on us. Thanks also to Shruti who tidies our room everyday, allowing us to return to a clean and tidy room whenever we return back from our meals. Also we would like to thank all the waitresses in the restaurant. Every single one of them has been exceptional. I tried my best to take down all their names, and I may not have managed to get all their names. Thank you to all the waiting staff at Ylang Ylang restaurant: Merina, Saneem, Rachelle, Dechen,Sapna, Novita, Citra, Jenny, Haydie, Ivy, Nady, Nuhuzha, etc etc. I have only 1 feedback. My villa’s hot water broke down twice in my 5 nights stay. However, the engineers were quick to repair it immediately. So kudos to their quick action.

    The staff at this hotel are truly fantastic and the senior management most definitely get their recruitment spot on. They were all happy to help and go out of their way at every single opportunity to make the guests stay even more perfect. A special mention to 2 of the staff that really stood out for me were of course our fantastic hostess, Patrice & secondly Maya in the swing bar - both an absolute credit to the hotel. What I like about the staff & hotel too is that there seems to be more staff than guests, so everybody stops for a chat, remembers your name and this makes everything so personable which makes you feel even more special. The hotel is very chilled which was great for me to just switch off the everyday life back at home. If you prefer it a little more lively, you can go over to the Ailafushi side of the hotel, but I feel once you have experienced Lobigili, you will see that there's no need to venture over there. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well maintained. The guys are constantly working throughout the day to make the hotel constantly look nice. Each room was very modern and slick, with rooms being cleaned every day too. The Aircon and big fan keep the rooms very cold which is amazing after being outside in the Maldivian humidity. Drinks and snacks restocked daily with wine, beer, soft drinks, water, chocolate and nuts - no need to ever ask. The snorkeling is great, a huge variety of sea life. If you are scared a little, just get yourself out of your comfort zone, it's truly worth it. Food is the best I've had at any hotel, plenty of variety each day & most definitely something for everyone. Going back to recruitment, the chefs here are absolute top notch so fair play to management again for bringing in the best of the best. After spending time at Lobigili, I can see why they have won numerous awards and accolades already and believe me, the way this hotel is run, there will be plenty more awards coming their way in the future. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay and if I could give you 6 stars, I would. Mr Barry and Mrs Michelle ♥️
