Peaceful holiday paradise

London, United Kingdom

We were travelling to Sri Lanka to visit family and for a holiday and thought it would be nice to visit the Maldives for 4 nights as it is very close to Sri Lanka. We were recommended this property by a friend. Our stay was incredible. Everything was fantastic from start to finish. We received a warm welcome at the airport with a professional and comfortable speedboat ride to the hotel island. The hotel and island themselves were beautiful and very well maintained. The atmosphere was incredibly relaxed to the extent that everyone could walk around the island and in the sand-covered bar and restaurant areas barefoot! All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful yet were not overbearing at all - we felt this was the right level of attentiveness for us. We stayed in a Lagoon Villa which was stunning. The all-inclusive plan was fantastic and there was always variety at every meal and at the bar. Food was always delicious and well cooked. The facilities on the island were all great. The marine life in immediate proximity to the island was incredible - the snorkelling alone was well worth the trip. There were always nice little touches during our stay provided by the staff which made things even more special. We always like to try somewhere new whenever we go away but would not hesitate to stay here again if we return to the Maldives in the future. Thank you team Oblu Helengeli for a wonderful stay!
