OBLU Nature Helengeli by SENTIDO water villa with pool in the Maldives

Maldives resort OBLU Nature Helengeli by SENTIDO to reopen with stunning new look

The stunning OBLU Nature Helengeli by SENTIDO is set to reopen next month with an all-new look, including revamped water villas, private pool beach villas and a speciality restaurant.

The revitalised spaces at the Maldives resort – a short flight from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Middle East destinations – enhance comfort and style, while retaining the island’s laidback, soulful charm.

The newly added water villas water suites feature attractive décor, a spacious outdoor deck with private swimming area, comfy seating areas, and views of the ocean.

The contemporary tropical deluxe beach villas now come with the option of a 6m2 private plunge pool nestled beneath swaying palm trees, while interiors have been upgraded with white walls, island-inspired décor, and vivid fabrics.

Designed for families, the two-bedroom family villas and two-bedroom beach suites – both with pools – are the perfect holiday homes with direct beach access.

These suites include a spacious master bedroom, kids’ room with twin beds and a private pool, ensuring plenty of space for everyone.

In addition to the accommodations, enhancements across the resort ensure a more relaxed, crafted island lifestyle.

Helen’s Bar & Pool has been reimagined into a bohemian chic hang out spot with a larger family pool, overwater hammocks, and a dance floor with DJ booth.

The main all-day outlet, The Spice, now features expanded seating, live counters, and an impressive new bar perched over the turquoise lagoon.

Speciality dining options are expanded too with the Just Grill restaurant featuring refreshed interiors and the addition of pizzas and mediterranean delicacies to the existing menu of meat and seafood grills.

A highlight is the new restaurant, Raaga Route where guests can savour progressive Indian cuisine with a crafted a la carte menu and modern ethnic ambiance.  

The hotel has further enriched the holiday experience with the addition of an overwater gym as well as a kids’ club and nature center.

As an interactive learning space, the venue invites younger guests to learn about local flora and fauna in the Maldives.

ELENA The Spa has also been refurbished, with a new treatment room and a range of holistic therapies inspired by the world’s natural elements.

Salil Panigrahi, Managing Director of Atmosphere Core, said: “We are delighted to unveil our beloved island resort with elevated new features and a comprehensive Island Plan designed to give guests an ideal OBLU experience.

“This nature-oriented retreat brings the Sentido touch to the Maldives. And, the two brands have come together seamlessly, curating a memorable island experience.”
