Staying at a luxury hotel in the Maldives was a real highlight of our travels. Amongst the chaos of travelling, we were treated to a taste of luxury thanks to a writing gig I had secured for travel website, House of Coco. This meant we could spend 5 days in paradise showcasing a new resort called OBLU Select at Sangeli.
It was a dream break from hotfooting across countries with a heavy backpack.
We left Sydney and headed to Sri Lanka before then flying onto the Maldives. We didn’t realise how close this slice of paradise was to Sri Lanka so we had book a flight. It then transpired that I could work researching some new haunts for House of Coco, hence staying at the stunning OBLU Select resort.
The Maldives is beautiful, utterly magical – the white sands and turquoise waters are what dreams are made of. The views we had a OBLU Select were as though we were looking at them through a postcard. Booking a flight to the Maldives is totally worth it – especially as we managed to buy flights for less than $300 AUD.
Staying at the OBLU Select resort for a mini break in-between would be the top of our recommendation list. We’re not being paid to say this but, it really was such an incredible place to stay.
Travel – You fly into Male International Airport and OBLU Select will organise your speedboat over to the resort which takes around 50 minutes.
Costs – Prices vary depending on low or high season and the type of accommodation you chose as they have water villas, ocean villas and standard villas. A standard villa can start from around $600-$800 USD a night.
A luxury hotel in the Maldives is a real treat.
With its incredibly attentive staff, amazing food options and beautiful ocean villas, it’s a stay that really will take you away from the norm and offer you an ultimate break.
The three luxurious resort restaurants are second to none and whether you fancy diving, snorkelling or sunset fishing trips, the daily excursions on offer are an added bonus to this island resort.
So if you’re looking for a special honeymoon spot or a memorable family holiday, OBLU Select will be worth every penny.
