Situated in the North Male, a 50-minute speed boat transfer from Male' International Airport, OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengeli is a good quality 4* property.
With 116 villas in 4 categories, this is a medium sized resort – big enough to have a wide range of facilities and a good atmosphere, but without the mass market feel of some of the larger 4* resorts. The all-Inclusive Island Plan represents great value for money and as a group the Atmosphere hotels maintain a reputation for quality across their restaurants and all-inclusive packages. Non-motorized water sports, snorkeling equipment & two excursions are included in the all-inclusive package.
Helengeli Island, is renowned for its exotic house reef, with its resident Silver-tipped Sharks, Lobsters & Giant Sea Turtles – reached by a short swim from the property. The dive school caters for all levels and there are over 20 diving spots on offer.
Meals are taken in the main Spice Restaurant, with one fine dining experience at the specialty Just Grill, is included in the stay. Regular alcohol, cocktails and a wine by the glass are included in the package.
The Travel Gallery Take – in the 4* all-inclusive market OBLU Helengeli is one of our favorite properties. We like the personal feel of the property & the overwater villa’s with pool (each accessed from the beach) are some of the best value water villas in the Maldives – as long as you aren’t looking to be at the end of a long jetty.
