Design, construction

Minimising environmental impacts is at the forefront of planning in this pristine location.

Renovations and repairs completed at the property include sustainable and energy-saving methods that will be durable over a long period.

Refurbishments re-use as much of the original structure as possible and incorporate local design and architecture such as kajan roofing and dhoani shaped masts along with environmentally friendly materials like coir, wood and bamboo.

Regional development

OBLU Helengeli actively contributes to community development in line with Atmosphere Hotels and Resorts’ CSR policy.

The resort provides educational opportunities for interns from local educational establishments to undertake vocational training and skill development in tourism and hospitality.

In addition, OBLU Helengeli supports health initiatives aimed at enhancing the well-being of local community members.

The property also purchases food from local producers and local fishermen to stimulate regional economic activity.

New tourism market

The Maldives reopened its borders on July 15, 2020, the first Asian destination to reopen for tourism since the start of the pandemic lockdowns.

Massive growth was seen in the number of tourists visiting the Maldives from India, an unprecedented year-over-year growth of 105 per cent as compared to other global businesses that have experienced a downturn in overall visitor numbers.

Historically, India is not a top volume generator for Maldivian resorts however, travel restrictions impeding traditional tourism markets contributed to this turnaround.
