Located in North Male’ Atoll, Oblu Select at Sangeli has opened doors and welcomed its first guests on Sunday.
A 50-minute speedboat transfer away from the capital city, the brand new four star delux resort ushered in its first visitors to the beats of ‘boduberu’ (traditional drums) and ‘bandiya’ (cultural 'pot' dance) tapping.
Sangeli features 137 stand-alone villas in six categories, both along the beach and overwater.
Unique to the resort will be the exclusive overwater Honeymoon Pool Suites situated on a neighbouring private sandbank connected from within the Sangeli lagoon.
These havens boast their own skylight features, and enjoy direct access to the Elena Spa Complex, an Adults-only pool and fine Dining experiences at ‘Just Grill & Simply Veg’, one of two specialty restaurants.
Sangeli will also feature Atmosphere’s signature all-inclusive ‘Serenity Plan’ offering exotic fine dining, recreation activities and excursions.
The resort is built amidst one of the best diving and snorkelling locations in the entire Male atoll, thus offering an array of exciting underwater experiences.
OBLU Select at Sangeli will be the second property within the OBLU sub-brand, after the launch of OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengeli in 2015.
This opening marks the fourth resort to be opened in the Maldives under the corporate umbrella of Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, since its inception in 2013.
In addition to OBLU by Atmosphere at Helengeli and the upcoming OBLU Select at Sangeli, Atmosphere runs two other resorts in the Maldives; entry-level five-star Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives and luxury OZEN by Atmosphere at Maadhoo.
