Honeymoon on the Island of Love
Enjoy a romantic honeymoon at the five-star, adults-only island resort OBLU SELECT Lobigili
What better way to start married life than with a Maldivian stay at OBLU SELECT Lobigili...
When you think of the Maldives, thoughts of little islands peppered across the water, captivating ocean views and sun-kissed white sand strewn with striking sea shells come to mind. The soothing sounds of the waves gently stroking the shores, seemingly untouched islands and mesmerising sea life. It is the perfect honeymoon escape in the Indian Ocean for the starry-eyed romantics. And whilst it is all those things, it is also buzzing with a vivid culture and delicious cuisine.
AN UNMISSABLE NEW OPENING...
For an unforgettable honeymoon, plan a getaway at the five-star, adults-only island resort OBLU SELECT Lobigili, just a quick 15-minute speedboat ride away from Velana International Airport. Its blissful location in the North Malé Atoll and exquisite service allow for a truly romantic escape. In the Maldivian language of Dhivehi, ‘Lobi’ means love, and ‘Gili’ means island. OBLU SELECT Lobigili is, in essence, the island of love. And as the name suggests, the resort caters impeccably to newlyweds and couples wanting to create special memories together.
Here, guests can soak up the Maldivian sun, relax by their private pool, unwind at the spa or delight in fun-packed water activities. Set along a dreamy white sandy beach, you can stay in one of the 24 SunNest Beach Pool Villas, equipped with a nature-inspired bedroom, an open-air Maldivian-style bathroom and a private pool. The beauty of these villas is that they all
face the sunset side of the island so you can feast on magical, flaming skies every night with your love by your side. And, believe us when we say, these sunsets are truly something! For a signature Maldivian experience, you can also plan a sojourn in one of the 22 SunNest Water Villas perched over a turquoise lagoon with direct access to the water and a beautiful deck from where you can admire the colourful sunsets.
Now, what’s amazing about staying at OBLU SELECT Lobigili is that you can indulge in the all-inclusive Lobi Plan, a generous holiday package carefully crafted for adults. With this exclusive offer: you receive complimentary airport transfer on arrival and return, a 45-minute spa treatment (for a minimum of a 4-night stay), use of all snorkelling equipment and non-motorised water sports throughout your stay, a complimentary guided snorkelling trip to visit the marine-rich house reef, unlimited beverages (definitely try the refreshing cocktails by the Swing Bar), all day dining at the superb Ylang Ylang - offering international à la carte options and live cooking stations with delicious cuisines like fresh grilled fish. With the Lobi Plan, you also will have one romantic dinner at the incredible underwater restaurant ONLY BLU (with a minimum 4-night stay). Now, that sounds like a plan!
FOR HONEYMOON COUPLES...
Lovebirds can also choose from a number of additional offerings to make their trip extra special, including private beachside movie nights with champagne and canapes, a private beach bonfire, a heart-shaped bank for proposals, floating breakfasts and a romantic couples’ photoshoot. Upon arrival, honeymooners can also book a consultation with a trained aromatherapy expert and select a romantic signature fragrance for their holiday in the Maldives. Eloping and celebrating your wedding at Lobigili is also a possibility!
There is a beautiful heart-shaped island ready to welcome your intimate celebration. Why not leave your worries behind and plan a dream destination wedding right in the heart of the Indian Ocean? After your scenic ceremony, you can stay and make full use of the Lobi Plan and enjoy the endless possibilities on offer. You’ll have plenty of activities to partake in during your romantic stay. From daily excursions in the stunning waters, high-end cuisine to try, and rejuvenating couples’ treatments at the resort’s spa, you’ll have the time of your life. ELENA The Spa is a tranquil oasis featuring four secluded treatment rooms. You’ll surely enjoy the therapies tailored to couples, such as the Hithun Hithath (Heart To Heart), a couple’s therapy that uses organically treated bamboo stalks to massage the body followed by a relaxing facial and bath ritual, and the detox Dhekanbalun (You & Me) followed by a crystal face massage and bath ritual.
