OBLU By Atmosphere At Helengeli
OBLU By Atmosphere At Helengeli - Description
The traditional dive resort of Helengeli reopened in November 2015 after a complete transformation into the new all inclusive, 4 star Atmosphere resort. “Genuine Value” is the key brand essence of OBLU by Atmosphere. All of its portfolio will deliver value for the cost conscious traveller without compromising the characteristics familiar with the Atmosphere Hotels and Resorts’ top class service and quality.
The refurbished resort features contemporary Maldivian architecture in a trendy fresh vibrant colour palette.
Helengeli is famed for tis exotic house reef (we rate it as one of the best for snorkelling in the Maldives) and being located in the eastern rim of the North Male Atoll, unparalleled dive locations are within the vicinity of the island. Having stayed at Helengeli both pre and post takeover by Atmosphere, we are delighted that the house reef remains are rewarding as ever.
Helengeli was always a fantastic resort with possibly the best house reef for snorkelling we have experienced. However, the resort infrastructure has now been totally upgraded so that it matches the great beaches and outstanding underwater experience.
We originally stayed here for 2 weeks with our boys Mathew 13 and Thomas 11. We immediately warmed to the natural simplicity of the island. It took just a little while longer for the caring personality of the island to shine through and by then we were hooked. Our first snorkelling trip ‘wowed’ us all. No where else have we seen so many fish, squid, reef sharks on top of the usual suspects were all sighted on that first trip. This is as good as it gets iin the Maldives.
We returned to the resort for another holiday after being taken over by th Atmosphere group. We were relieved that the house reef was as good as we remembered from our first stay and appreciated the improvements to accommodation and food standards. OBLU Helengeli is hard to beat for a great value, all inclusive resort with one of the best house reefs in the Maldives.
