OBLU NATURE Helengeli By SENTIDO – The Call Of The Blue

Maldives conjures up striking images of coral islands, powder white beaches, colourful marine life, clear blue and green waters, and picture-postcard water villas perched on the ocean. OBLU NATURE Helengeli by SENTIDO, lies a quick 50-minute speedboat ride from the capital of Male. The resort reopens with an all-new vibrant look set to entice the senses. Its new design is rooted in nature, bringing travellers close to the abundant tropical environment, both above and below the water. Travel and food expert Romi Purkayasta shares her experience of visiting the resort with her husband Gaurav Sharma.

The island of Helengeli is like a personal paradise, with private beaches, shallow lagoons, soft sandy trails, thick shady canopy of tropical trees, and the constant comforting company of a balmy ocean breeze. Nestled within this pristine beauty, OBLU NATURE Helengeli by SENTIDO, stands as a beacon of opulence and tranquillity. The resort offers a range of accommodation options designed to cater to every taste and preference. From spacious Beach Villas to Lagoon Villa with Pool, each abode is meticulously crafted to provide the utmost comfort and privacy. Wake up to breathtaking views of the crystal-clear waters right outside your window, and let the soothing sound of the waves lull you to sleep at night.

The resort has something for everyone. “There are calorie-burning activities including snorkelling, scuba diving, stand-up paddle board, kayaking or just swimming in the sea, with an on-site dive centre for all the necessary equipment, and some helpful tips on where to find the best corals and shoals of fishes. While grown ups can enjoy a dip in the quiet adult’s pool, or catch some live sporting action on the big screen, kids can have their own me-time playing games or watching a movie at the play centre,” shares Romi. Those looking to pamper themselves can head to the ELE | NA Spa in a blissfully quiet zen garden setting to wash away all the stress. And those inclined to doing nothing can just curl up on the cosy water hammocks over the edge of the ocean.

“That ocean breeze does make you hungry, and often! So it helps to have a sprawling dining space like The Spice, serving up sumptuous buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner, drawing from European, Middle Eastern, Indian and Asian cuisines, and even including a few delicious Maldivian delicacies like the Mas Huni (Shredded Tuna) and Garudhiya (Fish Soup),” she shares.

“At sunset, it’s a whole different vibe with the energetic bartenders at the open-to-ocean Helen’s Bar rustling up cool cocktails, while a live DJ spins out sundowner tracks. No matter where one soaks up the last rays of the setting sun, at the sunset lounge, or on the sunset cruise in a Dhoni out at sea, the crimson orb sinking into the sea is a memory that stays forever. And for those who want to make it a special night to remember, there are two specialty, fine-dining restaurant options – the progressive Indian ‘Raga Route’ and the signature restaurant ‘Just Grill’ , says Romi. “While harbour-side Raga Route’s creations are modern interpretations of popular Indian dishes, featuring crowd favourites like the Masala Corn Espuma, Sindhi Biryani, and Fennel Grilled Salmon, the beach-shack style Just Grill serves up smoky platters of exotic veggies, fresh seafood and juicy meats grilled to perfection, served with hearty sides and wines of choice.”

Whether you’re a thrill-seeker or a laid-back traveller, OBLU NATURE Helengeli by SENTIDO, has something for everyone. Dive into the crystal-clear waters and discover a vibrant underwater world teeming with colourful marine life. Snorkel alongside majestic sea turtles, or embark on a thrilling diving excursion to explore nearby coral reefs and shipwrecks. For those who prefer to stay above the surface, an array of water sports and excursions await, from windsurfing and kayaking to sunset cruises and exotic sea life.

“What makes OBLU NATURE Helengeli by SENTIDO an attractive and pragmatic option in Maldives is that the accommodation here is all-inclusive with meals, beverages, activities, and excursions built into the OBLU Island PlanTM. This effectively takes away the stress of constantly signing for services, activities, etc., or keeping track of small expenses while on holiday,” says Romi. This, coupled with the intuitive and friendly service, and the thought that one is enjoying a luxury dream holiday on a tiny speck of an island in the middle of the ocean, makes this a unique and unparalleled experience. “One to go back for, because once is just not enough, “ she concludes.
