OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi set to open in Maldives on May 19

The resort is being opened under the COLOURS OF OBLU brand of Atmosphere Hotels and Resorts

COLOURS OF OBLU, a brand by Atmosphere Hotels and Resorts, has announced the opening of OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi in the Maldives on May 19, 2022. Guests would be able to connect with nature, the local people and fellow travellers at the property, while also finding the freedom to reconnect with their true inner self.

Translating from the Maldivian dialect of Dhivehi, ‘Aila’ means family and ‘Fushi’ means island, in essence, the Family Island. A 15-minute speedboat ride from Velana International Airport would bring guests to this tropical island.

The four-star resort’s 268 villas and rooms have been designed to experience nature at its best. A fleet of water villas shaped like dhonis (traditional Maldivian boats) are lined up along the jetty. Views of blue ocean and white beaches are among the visual delights that guests can experience. 

Dining, activities, a multi-level kids club with a pool and food corner, overwater gym and live entertainment have been blended within the stay for guests to enjoy their holiday. 

All-day dining options are available at the Element X Restaurant which serves modern Western, Central Asian and Far Eastern cuisines. X360 Bar features a 1,000 sqm infinity pool – one of the largest in the Maldives. Guests can enjoy unlimited orders of spirits, wines and beer from the grab and go bar counter. The Copper Pot Food Truck parked on the beach offers an open-air dinner of choicest fresh seafood and meat grills. 

Guests would also be able to walk up to La Promenade located beside a channel that meanders across Ailafushi island. This picturesque walkway has seating corners along with a wine boutique, souvenir shop and café and guests can lounge at the overwater deck as well as socialise with other travellers. Experiential highlights also include The Dome, a futuristic 15-meter theatre and entertainment centre. 

Jorge Amaro, the General Manager of OBLU SELECT Lobigili and OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi, said, “I’m delighted to welcome guests with our unique offerings, smart services and lively attractions. OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi is a youthful, joyous and energetic resort with a laidback island-style living vibe. Ailafushi island follows the successful opening of OBLU SELECT Lobigili in March this year. The two interconnected resorts offer innovative concepts, with something exciting in store for all travellers.”
