OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi is rather unique when compared to other resorts we feature in the Maldives. At the heart of the resort is La Promenade, where guests can experience a vibrant retail and cafe scene, including a coffee and pastry shop and wine shop. That is certainly not something you see every day at a Maldivian resort! The choice of room types available and excellent children's facilities makes this an excellent option for families, and their all inclusive plan is also very good value for money.
