An adults only all-inclusive resort in Maldives, OBLU SELECT Lobigili recognised as No. 1 Luxury Hotel Worldwide & No. 2 Hotel in the World and in 2024 Travellers’ Choice Awards by Tripadvisor.

OBLU SELECT Lobigili is crowned as No.1 Luxury Hotel globally AND No.2 Hotel in the coveted Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2024, outshining its own remarkable achievement last year as the world’s ‘Hottest New Hotel.’

The Travellers’ Choice Awards ‘Best of the Best’ celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel. It’s awarded to hotels and resorts who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of 8 million listings, fewer than 1% of listed hotels achieve this accolade.

Christopher Baker, General Manager, couldn’t be prouder of his team, stating, “Bringing alive the COLOURS OF OBLU ethos of ‘Vibrant Destinations’, Lobigili blends alluring tropical vistas with elegant design. Here, we’re all about delivering that genuine, heartfelt service that is as discreet as it is personalised. It is this perfect balance that keeps our guests coming back for more. Since opening on March 24, 2022, we’ve become the go-to spot for adults, honeymooners and couples looking to renew their vows, celebrate that special anniversary or just escape the world to romance in paradise.”

In the Maldivian language of Dhivehi, ‘Lobi’ means love and ‘Gili’ means island. Located 15 minutes from Velana International Airport, Lobigili is a contemporary 5-Star resort, designed for couples and adults to enjoy a romantic getaway amidst brilliant Maldivian vistas. The outstanding resort is committed to operating sustainably and is Green Globe certified, the industry standard for today’s responsible hospitality operator. There are 68 private beach and water villas across three categories, all overlooking the brilliant blue lagoon. The resort’s perfect white sands complemented by sophisticated restaurants and spa, evoke a sense of seclusion and escape.

With transfers, accommodation, meals and experiences covered, guests can savour delectable meals at the all-day dining restaurant, unwind at The Swing Bar featuring an infinity pool and inviting hammocks, try fragrant seafood grills at Gaadiya 17 Food Truck, and experience the unparalleled ambiance of the Maldives’ largest under ocean restaurant, Only BLU – all features of the unique holiday plan, the Lobi PlanTM. From snorkelling adventures to soul-soothing wellness therapies at the beachside spa, every moment is infused with pure bliss. OBLU SELECT Lobigili isn’t just the world’s top luxury resort — it is your enchanting island romance waiting to happen.
