COLORS OF OBLU, a brand of Atmosphere Hotels and Resorts, announced the opening of OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi in the Maldives on May 19, 2022. Guests will be able to connect with nature, local people and fellow travelers at the property, while finding the freedom to reconnect with their true inner selves.
Translated from the Maldivian dialect of Dhivehi, ‘Aila’ means family and ‘Fushi’ means island, in essence, the island of the family. A 15-minute speedboat ride from Velana International Airport would bring guests to this tropical island.
The 268 villas and rooms of the four-star resort have been designed to experience nature at its best. A fleet of water villas shaped like dhonis (traditional Maldivian boats) line the jetty. Views of the blue ocean and white sand beaches are among the visual delights guests can experience.
Dining, activities, a multi-level kids’ club with a pool and food court, an overwater gym, and live entertainment have been incorporated into the stay for guests to enjoy their vacation.
Dining options are available all day at Element X Restaurant which serves modern Western, Central Asian and Far Eastern cuisine. The X360 Bar features a 1000 m² infinity pool, one of the largest in the Maldives. Guests can enjoy unlimited orders of spirits, wines and beers at the take-out bar counter. The Copper Pot Food Truck parked on the beach offers alfresco dining of the finest fresh seafood and meat grills.
Guests can also walk to La Promenade located next to a canal that winds through Ailafushi Island. This quaint walkway has seating areas as well as a wine shop, gift shop, and cafe. Guests can relax on the deck over the water and socialize with other travelers. Experience highlights also include The Dome, a futuristic 15-meter theater and entertainment center.
Jorge Amaro, General Manager of OBLU SELECT Lobigili and OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi, said, “I am delighted to welcome customers with our unique offerings, smart services and lively attractions. OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi is a young, cheerful and energetic resort with a relaxed island-style vibe. Ailafushi Island follows the successful opening of OBLU SELECT Lobigili in March this year. The two interconnected stations offer innovative concepts, with something exciting in store for all travellers.
