COLOURS OF OBLU, a brand by Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts, has announced expansion of its portfolio with the highly anticipated opening of OBLU SELECT Lobigili on March 24, 2022. Conveniently located in Malé Atoll, the resort is just a 15-minutes speedboat ride from Velana International Airport.
In the Maldivian language of Dhivehi, ‘Lobi’ means love and ‘Gili’ means island. Lobigili is, in essence, the island of love.
