Budget Maldives / OBLU By Atmosphere


Hotel rating:

Opened after reconstruction and rebranding in November of 2015, OBLU By Atmosphere is a 4-star hotel located on Helegeli island North Malé Atoll. A 50-minute drive on a speedboat will take you from the Malé International Airport to this island. There no hydroplane transport to the island which is good because you’re not distracted by noisy sounds. The island itself is not such big so you can walk from one end to the other in 20 min.

There are 4 types of villas on the island: Beach Villas, Deluxe Beach Villas, Lagoon Villas with Plunge Pool and Beach Suits With Pools. You will find a coffee machine and a kettle in each room. All the rooms can suit either 3 adults or two adults with a child. Each room includes a mini-fridge with two bottles of 0.5 ml mineral water, electronic safe, air conditioning, a ceiling fan, a hairdryer, satellite TV, signature beach bag and a life jacket which is really very thoughtful.

The rooms are comfortable with a bit unusual large windows and an open air bathroom. All houses are located close to the ocean in the thick foliage of palms and trees where you can find a personal lounge in a nice shadow of palms or a sunshade. The rooms are serviced twice a day ensuring that very little sand got into them and towels are changed frequently.

A plenty of various therapy procedures are carried out by outstanding therapists as well as facial treatment is estimated at a high level.  Apart from a great facial and body treatments the Balinese massage is also strongly appreciated by the amount of guests. What concerns the prices they are pretty affordable at Elena Spa. And as well it is a great value for the money you pay.

Beach and Reef

The island is kept beautifully clean and well maintained and all the staff are very friendly and polite. The house reef presupposes a great snorkeling. Therefore there are lifeguards monitoring when the current is strong. The snorkeling is really amazing – turtles, manta rays, reef sharks and wonderful colorful small fish abound around the reef.

Each villa has life jackets to use when snorkeling so it gives you the opportunity to enjoy it even if you are not a confident swimmer. Moreover you can hire the snorkeling equipment free of charge which is bonus.

Don’t expect soft sandy beaches everywhere as there’s a lot of coral in the lagoon but that’s what makes it so pretty for snorkeling! On the outside the beaches consistence is powdery white sand although the shore line can be rugged and a bit corally. In this case reef shoes would be definitely recommended.
