2 mins read

The highly-anticipated, five-star, adults-only Oblu Select Lobigili resort is ready to welcome its first guests on Thursday (24 March).

The newest property of Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts’ Colours of Oblu brand, Lobigili is located in Malé Atoll just a 15-minutes speedboat ride from Velana International Airport and features 68 contemporary beach and water villas.

“Whether they seek the romance of solo travel, a one-of-a-kind celebration with friends or sharing some intimate ‘us time’ with their partner, our secluded sanctuary offers a perfectly chilled-out getaway amidst surreal ocean vistas,” said General Manager Jorge Amaro.

In the local Dhivehi language, Lobigili means the ‘Island of Love’ ( ‘Lobi’ means love and ‘Gili’ means island). The resort’s generous Lobi PlanTM includes speciality fine-dining, unlimited beverages, spa services, Indian Ocean excursions, a selection of non-motorised watersports as well as a fully stocked minibar replenished daily.

Romantic dining options include the Ylang-Ylang all-day dining restaurant, a beachside Swing Bar with hammocks, swings and an infinity pool, and the Gaadiya 17 Food Truck for grab-and-go game meat grills. The flagship Only Blu Underwater Restaurant, one of the largest underwater restaurants in the country, serves modern gourmet cuisine with a pairing of red and white wines.

Designed exclusively for couples and adults, Lobigili’s ‘Ele | Na The Spa’ features four secluded double treatment rooms with a couples bath.

Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts operates six resorts in the Maldives under its Ozen Collection and Colours Of Oblu brands. The Colours of Oblu portfolio also includes the Oblu Select Sangeli, Oblu Nature Helengeli and the Oblu Xperience Ailafushi due to open in early May 2022.
