Hand-Picked Hotel

Fall in love with OBLU SELECT Lobigili, a 5-star Maldives resort that's perfect for romance with chic villas, dreamy views, and first-rate facilities.

Love is definitely in the air at OBLU SELECT Lobigili, a 5-star Maldives resort that opened in March 2022 and has already clocked up scores of rave reviews – much like its sister resort, OBLU Xperience Ailafushi. The name Lobigili translates as “Island of Love”, and you can’t imagine a more perfect backdrop for romance. There are 68 chic and contemporary villas peppered along a chalky white beach nudged by a cobalt-blue lagoon and surrounded by swaying palm trees. The small and friendly size of the resort gives it a special, intimate feel. And the (predominantly female) staff make sure you’ve got everything you need during your dreamy island escape.

The top-notch resort facilities will keep you as active – or relaxed – as you choose to be. Don your tennis whites on the outdoor, artificial grass court set among lush tropical trees, or work up a sweat in the overwater fitness centre with lagoon views for days. For an indulgent experience, make a date with ELE ǀ NA The Spa, which boasts a range of pampering treatments to soothe your mind, body, and soul. And for a romantic night with a difference, a private cinema screening on the beach beneath the stars, complete with Champagne and canapés, is just the ticket.

One of the island’s many stand-out features is its dining scene. Ylang-Ylang serves up delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner options from live cooking stations, tandoors, and an extensive dessert bar. Prepare to be wowed at Only BLU, the largest under-ocean restaurant in the Maldives – as a stream of exotic marine life shimmy by, you can tuck into mouth-watering, modern flavours paired with international wines. The poolside Swing Bar is the ultimate destination for cocktails, nibbles, and peachy sunsets, with a lively soundtrack to boot. For a casual bite to eat, head to the Gaadiya 17 food truck, which offers up farm-raised game meat such as wild boar, duck, and partridge.

Local Area

OBLU SELECT Lobigili can be reached by speedboat transfer from Malé International Airport in just 15 minutes – which means you can start your dream getaway that little bit sooner. Lobigili Island is situated in North Malé Atoll, renowned for its enchanting underwater scenery and variety of scuba diving. Experience the thrill of diving with the resort’s PADI & SSI-certified Dive School and Watersports Centre. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced diver, the expert team will take you on an adventure of a lifetime, discovering the abundant house reef, or further afield to some of the best dive and snorkelling sites in the atoll. Vibrant reef fish, turtles, octopus, and manta rays are just some of the aquatic characters you’ll meet.

Water sports take centre stage at OBLU SELECT Lobigili, where you can try your hand at a variety of activities that make the most of the sublime backdrop. Choose from pursuits such as stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), canoeing, or even jet-skiing, if speed is your thing. Experience the magic of the Maldives with a private sunset cruise – watch in awe as turquoise hues melt into romantic reds, pinks, and oranges. Or set sail with a full moon cruise as moonlight glistens over the waves, a truly memorable experience for two.

To get an authentic feel for the Maldives, be sure to visit its capital, Malé. As a predominantly Muslim city, you’ll find many beautiful and fascinating mosques to explore – the most well-known being the Grand Friday Mosque. For art lovers, the Esjehi Art Gallery is a must. This striking building is one of oldest buildings in the city, and is home to many modern and traditional Maldivian masterpieces. Also, call in on the National Museum, where you’ll find an incredible collection of artifacts from the Sultanate period, including thrones and statues. Take a stroll in the landscaped gardens of Sultan’s Park when you emerge.
