We choose to stay at the Sangeli island for 9 days for our Honeymoon and this was the best decision we made. The place is a true paradise! The people are super friendly and smiling. The service is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone who decides to see what paradise really is. The food is very varied and interesting. Each night has different themes and you can try different types of cuisines. In addition to the main restaurant, there are two more - "Just Grill" and "Simply Veg", both of them amazing. Special thanks to Mr. Ashnur for helping me make my wife's birthday unforgettable. The people at the restaurant prepared a special beach dinner, romantically decorated, with a special and extremely delicious food, amazing champagne and a great cake! All of them got together to sing the "Happy Birthday" song, which was really awesome! One of the most interesting things out there is the water world. My wife and I used to go snorkeling every day and were able to see sharks, octopus, different species of fish, corals, cuttlefish, rays and more. From the Diving Center you can get various suggestions for great water adventures. The Rock Bar is a great place to watch the sunset every day. We received a gift for our honeymoon - a voucher for a full-body massage at Elena Spa. It was an amazing experience. The ladies there were extreme professionals and made us relax and enjoy the massage at max. From the balcony of the water villa there was a great view of the ocean and every morning we were greeted by the sunrise from there. It was the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine in the late afternoon/night or drink your coffee with the sunrise. Incredible! The beach bar was one of our favourite places - The Sangs Bar. The service is amazing! I especially want to thank Lovely, Nishan and Thirupati for their great friendly attitude! We tried different types of cocktails, and the best we've tried so far was the Sunset cocktail. I especially want to pay attention to the amazing band of Yeni and Enrique (the cuban band from the Sangs bar) that made the experience unforgettable every night. Great people who know how to entertain their listeners. Their music is amazing! They give heart to the people around them and this is definitely noticeable. We enjoyed their music every night and didn't stop dancing to their songs! Every night was a great party! Yeni greeted my wife for her birthday with a special song and my wife was very surprised and happy! We are so grateful that they made our stay there so exciting! I hope to see them again next time we come again.

We stayed at Oblu Select at Sangeli in October 2019. We booked our honeymoon through Poseidon Holidays agency. My husband and I spent 9 unforgettable days in paradise. This is an amazing place that is full of kindness and friendly people! They made our holiday Unforgettable. The view from our balcony was the best part! The ocean, the sand, and the sun are my favorite thing!!! I am the happiest person cus I had the chance to meet amazing people. One of these amazing people is the Cuban band that sang every night at the Sangs bar. Listening to the band, dancing and having fun with them was one of the best and most enjoyable moments. They are great professionals who have made our vacation unforgettable. They made a special greeting for my birthday without even telling them I had a birthday. They played great songs that we enjoyed a lot. They give out from the heart and make people have fun. My husband and I are extremely grateful and hope that next time we visit the island they will be there again. We especially want to thank Nishan and Lovely from the Sangs Bar for making sure we feel great all the time and not be deprived of anything. Also big thanks to Ashnur from Kortjard for helping my husband make the most wonderful surprise for my birthday - a wonderful dinner on the beach with great service, food, and music. Everyone made sure to make my birthday unforgettable. They also made us a gift for our honeymoon - a voucher for a massage from Elena Spa - an amazing experience! We will definitely be back there again! Keep it up!

What an unbelievable place. We booked our honeymoon through The Flight Centre who had suggested the Oblu Select as it is fairly new (18months old). We couldn’t wait to get there. From start to finish it was the single most incredible experience we could of ever wished for. We were greeted at the reception by our butler Moad for the week who was exceptional. He took us on a tour of the island before taking us to our Honeymoon Villa. The pictures do not do it justice. It is definitely a must to stay in one of these. Our villa was made up twice a day with chocolates and fresh fruit daily. The two restaurants we could go to everyday was Simply Veg and Just Grill. The food in both restaurants was spectacular. Flavours like no other and Prosecco on tap. The buffet in the main restaurant (the Courtyard) was also fantastic and catered for all. All the staff were brilliant and couldn’t do enough for you and made our stay so so special. The Oblu isn’t just for honeymoon goers, it is for all couples who just want to relax, enjoy the breathtaking sunsets and spend quality time with each other.

We stayed at Oblu Select in October 2019 for our honeymoon and fell in love with the place. We booked through Stylish Resorts and the hotel and island lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a water villa (without pool) and it was fantastic. The view over the open ocean from our window was beautiful and we enjoyed snorkelling on the reef (accessed directly from our villa) throughout our stay. The staff are fantastic and provide great customer service. The food was great for all three meals and we particularly enjoyed our a la carte experience at the vegetarian restaurant (Simply Veg). There is a dive centre on the island and we paid extra to go on a dolphin cruise, which was something special. An hour in we hadn't found the dolphins but then we were lucky enough to see them for the last 45 minutes and it really was breathtaking (of course there is no guarantee you will see dolphins!). We can't wait to return some day!

A luxurious stay, my husband and I have spent three days of dreams. The food is delicious, the staff goes out of their way to assist us. Our cabin was very well equipped and it was great to see the fish go under. The room cleaning service was impeccable. To highlight the Cuban band that entertains every night, they are excellent. The singer has a spectacular voice and dominates several languages. They put us to dance and made our nights delicious. We recommend Oblu Select Sangeli 1 million times and hope to return in the future.

Couples trip end of October mixed weather 2days solid rain thunderstorms ⛈ Villa 519 with pool great location for one banyan and coral garden with huge variety of 🐠 stingray and turtles,housekeepers Yamin and Vencat kept spotless and fridge request extra milk and Diet Coke replacement no problem. The exterior to villas are in need of paint and varnish and tiles on pool replaced (small things but expected from new 5* standards and new resort ) The sands staff are a credit to you Courtney thanks to sally,Lynne,Vishnu,Charles,nishan (super hard worker)but for us your shining star 🌟 was Thirupati I’ve already expressed my thoughts about the team to Courtney.get ! well soon Courtney. Food was good service was good in buffet always choices to be had Pool lunch at one banyan always lovely relaxed affair thanks suresh for looking after us well and manuka always a smile and a chat I will say that all staff ask how you are as part of the service but some are genuinely interested in getting to know you and this is what makes some shine over others! The entertainment needs serious attention and variation, The Cuban band were good but same songs every night (perhaps share and rotate singers from nearby helengeli ?)DJ ,professional magician,most people got bored and left instead of interacting shame! Just grill amazing Simply veg not amazing In fact myself and another guest were ill afterwards and discovered that we chose same from menu ! Mine lasted two days I did report to Monika and also the sangs staff as they asked where we were as missed us . I think the resort will benefit from another a la carte as planned. Thanks to Tini In spa great Balinese massage. Warning the price is way overpriced compared with uk market (I’m in the business)so haggle 🤷🏼‍♀️I still over paid by £40 they add tax onto advertised prices but had problem with my neck from flight so paid up 🤦🏻‍♀️ Thanks Jorge we wish you and your staff every success we enjoyed our stay and chatting to you on leaving

A very pleseant experience în paradise. Even when is raining is extraordinary. Oblu Select team is as a family - friendly, helpful. Today we have learned how to do toys from palm tree leaves. Thank u, Zammer!

Yet again a fantastic experience at one of the Atmosphere resorts. This was a family and friends holiday and we arrived in force all 9 of us, Oblu made sure our villas were all next door to each other, which was great and very convenient. Firstly I need to mention the service as this is outstanding, the staff are all amazing, a special mention to Adhil & the housekeeping team for making our experience wonderful and going above and beyond to make anniversaries and birthdays moments we will never forget, thanks guys Also what a team at the sangs bar, just great - Vishnu, Charles and everyone, remembered us from our other trips to other atmosphere resorts it was great to see them again and to be welcomed back so warmly, they knew us all by name, knew all the drinks we wanted before even asking, the service was amazing, we left with some great memories of fun nights at the bar with dancing, singing and magic tricks. All the restaurants are of a high standard loved the buffet every day, make sure you try the bbq burgers, with the beetroot bun, just yum, the chef is great. Thanks so much to Linden at Just grill for fitting us in when we arrived all 9 of us on the wrong day - obviously far too chilled to remember our booking, food was amazing along with the staff. Just Veg, a fabulous creative vegetarian restaurant with great food great views and as always on this resort great staff. The rooms are all clean and comfortable, we stayed in the beach villas and i really have nothing negative to say they were perfect. The sunsets were stunning The snorkeling on the reef off the beach is great and easy especially if you have young ones. just a tip on the slide into the sea, make sure you ask the time and hang around then, as its only open for a brief time and you may miss it. take reef shoes as its very rocky We hired a boat and went off on our own private adventure looking for dolphins, the guys on the boat were so friendly and as over the moon as we were to find the biggest pod of dolphins on our return to the island. this made the trip extra special. A couple of points which in no way made the holiday a disappointment but could be improved on - we asked in advance about the selections of wine to check what was advertised could be provided, we were assured it would be but unfortunately none of the selection was available, as a wine drinker i was looking forward to a glass of wine with my meals. Also the sun beds around the pool are incredibly uncomfortable and trying to get yourself in a relaxing position to read your book is a bit difficult. The wait we experienced at Male airport was very long before getting on the boat transfer to the island and there are limited seats in the airport, so we found ourselves having to sit in burger king for near on 2 hours when we arrived in male. All in all we had a fantastic time, I have to say after visiting atmosphere resorts time and tie again you can never ever fault the staff, they always make the experience 5* thank you to each and everyone of you for making our holiday great see you next year

Piece of Heaven on Earth , great management, kind , helpful & smiley staff ever ( not easy smiling everyone, anytime ), we had an water villa - the stunning panoramic view over the ocean, super clean - twice/day , excellent & various food ! Perfect, even more ...Can't wait to come back ! Already miss it Oblu Select at Sangeli !

We arrived before the overwater villa was officially ready so we relaxed in The Sangs bar while the villa was made ready and we were greeted warmly by the staff...perfect!! When we got to the villa it was breathtakingly wonderful....the view, the setting and the staff were amazing. It was larger than we expected, the bathroom was huge and we even had a separate dressing room....fabulous. The staff couldn't do enough for us, they spoilt us at every opportunity. The food was well presented and the choice was amazing...you wanted for nothing. The staff welcomed us at every meal and made us feel so special. It was fantastic to relax in The Sangs bar in the evening after eating.... a different nominated cocktail every night made the evenings very enjoyable! There was light entertainment most evenings, and a special evening devoted to the local culture by the staff was really good fun. The general manager could be seen getting his food in the Courtyard restaurant and was very approachable at any time of the day. He uses all the facilities and is constantly seen walking round available for guests and staff. The staff and the general manager are a credit to the resort. If you have the chance to go to 'Simply Veg' make sure you go....it's amazing, well worth the visit. Villa was spotless and mini bar was replenished twice daily. Plenty to see in the water...so many different fish...my husband even filmed a ray under our villa. If you want a holiday which allows you to relax and be pampered this is the place to go....they just couldn't do enough for us.........we will definitely be going back soon!!!
