OBLU SELECT at Sangeli – Maldives

A 4-star resort that caters to all types of travelers (but mostly to honeymooners), the OBLU SELECT at Sangeli Resort in the Maldives is an overwater oasis. With a rather large assortment of rooms to choose from, a grand 137 in total, you'll be able to find exactly what you're looking for. In fact, there are 3 different types of overwater suites, with 2 categories coming with their own private pool to accompany the private terrace.

Making this resort and its rooms even better is the signature SERENITY Plan. This all-inclusive plan allows guests to enjoy everything they could want and need for one price. Included in this plan are 3 daily meals at the Spice restaurant, an unlimited beverage plan, sunset fishing, non-motorized watersport access, full access to the gym, complimentary snorkeling equipment rental, and a once daily re-stock of your in-room mini bar. Guests will also find several different pools on-site and a large spa offering treatments and massages for adults.


The OBLU SELECT at Sangeli Resort is located on the northwestern tip of the Male Atoll on the island of Sangeli.

What the reviews say

The reviews for this resort are fantastic, and represent the opinions of a wide variety of visitors from around the world. Couples seem to especially love the water villas here, stating that they are private, comfortable, and offer lots of luxurious amenities, including the on-call personal butler. The snorkeling around the resort is also heavily praised, with the large amount of fish being detailed as a high point here.

The drink list and plate selection seem to meet pretty much everyone's expectations, which can be a very difficult thing to achieve due to the large amount of different personal likes and dislikes. All in all, this resort seems like a great choice and one that can rival other higher priced overwater resorts in the area.
