Heaven, Paradise

Telford, United Kingdom

Firstly I would like to say what a wonderful holiday my husband and I had. Starting with the warm greeting we had upon arrival, we were met by the General Manager Luisa and her staff. The food was fantastic with plenty of choice for everyones tastes even if you requested something different they were very accommodating. The staff were very friendly and were always there to assist you. Our room boy Sundip was very professional even when we said our room did not need cleaning, it was always cleaned to an exceptional high standard. The Spa was amazing with excellent service my husband had several treatments which he thoroughly enjoyed. The island was excellently maintained. Even down to the maintenance of our room our safe battery was running low within minutes they arrived and changed it. I would highly recommend this resort, we have already booked to go back next year. I personally don't think you would find a better more friendly place in the Maldives. The snorkelling was great I had a guide one day which was really good if you are a nervous person I would highly recommend this. A huge thank you to Luisa for being a fantastic manager which reflects with all her staff. THANK YOU FOR A BRILLIANT HOLIDAY.

Trip of a lifetime cut short by Corona virus

My husband and I had planned our trip of a lifetime to the Maldives for my 50th birthday and the renewal of our wedding vows after 20 years. From the moment we arrived in Male we were able to understand how attentive Oblu staff were to their guests. The guys on the speed boat greeted us and whisked us away to the island, we were welcomed by the sound of drums and smiling staff, our luggage was taken straight to our room and after a quick check in we were taken to our room too. Ranil showed us around and answered any questions we asked him. Our room was a Luxury beach villa which was fantastic just as the pictures on line showed, everything you need is there for you to use, beach towels, beach bag flip flops etc. The room was serviced twice a day and the lovely luxurious towels were changed everyday. The atmosphere is so happy and relaxed, we enjoyed the lovely food everyday which was a huge buffet something for everyone cooked to perfection. The snorkelling was awesome you name it it’s probably there, far to many different species to mention, and the pools were very well kept with friendly waiters topping you up all day long. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff here and they seem very happy.We had 2 massage treatments each in the beautiful spa which was also exceptional. We went on 2 sunset fishing trips as my husband is a keen fisherman but even I enjoyed it, he managed to catch 2 fish so he was happy! On my birthday we arrived at the restaurant for breakfast and a table was decorated beautifully with flowers and happy birthday message to me, in the evening we had a private beach bbq with chef and waiter with a beautiful table set out with candles, the evening was exquisite. Unfortunately that’s where our holiday was to end as 2am we were woken by the telephone to tell us we had to pack our bags we were leaving first thing in the morning, because of the corona virus the Maldives were going into lockdown. I was devastated. Just before we came on holiday I had lost my mother and having my holiday cut short too was just so unfair we had 6 days left. Of course we understood that safety must come first and the staff even banged the gong and waved us off as we left, although I was crying my eyes out to leave this beautiful paradise so soon. I would recommend anyone to go here your holiday will be everything you dreamed of, Luisa and her staff are amazing. We hope to return one day......
