OBLU at Helengeli has appointed a new General Manager; Mr. Bill Ignatiadis. Previously posted as the Resort
manager of the first operty under the Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts Hospitality brand as the Resort Manager at
Atmosphere Kanifushi Maldives in Lhaviyani Atoll up until the beginning of 2017; Bill has now moved into Helengeli
Bill’s previous experience includes working in several world‐renowned brands back in his native Australia including
LVMH, One & Only, and ACCOR properties, and other unique environments and locations. Together with the
wealth of experience acquired from such high‐end brands, Bill also comes from a strong Food & Beverage
background which he is seamlessly incorporating into OBLU Helengeli’s operations.
When asked about his first impression of OBLU at Helengeli, Bill said;
“I really fell in love with straightaway. It is fun, funky, fresh but still has that relaxed island feel. The House‐Reef
is really just spectacular and being able to see dolphins almost daily 50 meters from breakfast is just inspiring!
Helengeli Island encompasses the true essence of The Maldives! ”
OBLU at Helengeli follows Atmosphere Hotels & Resorts core brand philosophy of ‘The Joy of Giving’ which is
deeply interwoven into the resort’s customer experience and this is clearly shown from the positive feedback and
sheer number of repeater guests that have returned to Helengeli since it’s launch in November 2015.
Aside from the beautifully contemporary and vibrant design style of the resort, Bill believes the core strength of
OBLU at Helengeli is the staff and how they are so genuinely engaged in providing guests with ‘best in class’
service and ensuring each guest have memorable experiences during stay. OBLU having a significant number of
repeater guests specifically returning because of individual staff members is truly inspiring to him.
OBLU at Helengeli continues to strive forward in the 4‐Star Superior segment, having recently been selected within
the “TOP 100 Resorts of the World” by ITS Germany and awarded the prestigious ITS RedStar Award.
