On Helengeli you experience the natural beauty of the Maldives at its best. Lush tropical vegetation, completely untouched beaches of the finest white sand surrounded by a turquoise lagoon and a fantastic house reef - the unique charm of this secluded Maldivian island will captivate you as soon as you step onto it.
The resort has been completely renovated and reopened only in October 2004. It has been designed and developed with the preservation of the island's fragile environment and your comfort in mind. The result is an unspoiled island paradise with all the amenities that will make you feel completely at home.
On Helengeli we offer you the best in culinary delights, continental as well as exotic oriental dishes, in our bright cosy restaurant. Start the day with our home made oven fresh bread and tropical fruits from our varied breakfast buffet. Lunch and dinner are served both as buffets and set and are carefully prepared and lovingly presented. Occasional beach BBQ’s or private beach dinners round off the wide choice of dining events. Enjoy an exotic cocktail poolside or on the wooden deck next to our well-stocked bar during sunset, the ideal time to spot playful dolphins.
Place yourself in our hands and let us pamper you. Our experienced therapists will relieve the stress from your body with the wide selection of treatments on offer.

Due to Helengeli's location on the outer reef the unspoiled house reef is just off the beach, easily accessible to both snorkellers and divers. Some of the best dive sites, such as the Helengeli Thila, are also found near Helengeli.
The dive school is run by Ocean Pro and equipped with the best modern equipment. Experienced, multilingual European diving instructors teach PADI courses up to internationally accepted diving certificates of different levels. Twice a day diving excursions to some of the 36 dive sites nearby Helengeli are arranged, some as close as 10 minutes.
If you had enough of sunbathing or swimming in the pool, table tennis, billiard, volleyball and carom (a traditional board game) keep you active.
Snorkelling trips will introduce you to the amazing under water world the Maldives are renown for, as the unspoiled house reef is just meters from the beach.
Excursions to inhabited local islands and deserted islands give you the unique opportunity to discover more of the Maldives and their way of life. A special excursion is the dolphin search, as many dolphins call the waters around Helengeli their home.
