OBLU SELECT Lobigili is a great choice for clients looking for an adults only option in the Maldives. The villas are comfortable and contemporary, suiting couples who prefer modern comforts and amenities to a more traditional Maldivian style. The short transfer time to Male means that Lobigili would also work well for clients looking to do a twin centre holiday within the Maldives - you could easily get a speedboat back to Male before taking a seaplane out to another island.
