If an idea of building a Thai-inspired resort in the Maldives raises your eyebrow, think about what this gets you. The gracious Thai hospitality set in an unparalleled luxury setting: two of the best aspects of Asian luxury travel in one gorgeous package.
Located on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, Dusit Thani seduces with pearl-white sandy beaches, turquoise lagoon, verdant vegetation and house reef that has some of the richest marine life in Maldives.
One hundred villas
The resort’s villas and residences are a haven of modern sophistication, with luxurious amenities and technology.
There is a range of accommodation options, from Beach Villas, Beach Villas with Pool, Lagoon Villas with Pool, Ocean Villas with Pool, to the exclusive Ocean Pavilions and Beach Residences, which ensure the best luxury indulgence. They feature two bedrooms, larger swimming pools, indoor and outdoor dining seating options and even pantries.
All villas are finished with modern amenities, e.g. complimentary Wi-Fi, 46″ TV plasma screen, Bose surround system, in-villa wine coolers.
Exquisite cuisine in an exotic setting is another highlight of the resort. There are several dining outlets, including the all-day restaurant Market, the signature Thai Benjarong restaurant, as well as the Sea Grill, which serves local seafood fare in a beachside setting.
Poolside snacks and creative selection of fresh cocktails are offered at Sand Bar, while the Sala Bar is set up for romantic sundowners or stargazing.
Spa and beyond
The ultimate in relaxation can be found at Dusit’s signature Devarana Spa, elevated in a grove of coconut palm trees. Featuring six tree-top treatment pods, Deravana is one of its kind in the Maldives.
For all other kinds of relaxation the resort provides a fully-equipped fitness studio with personal trainer and yoga instructor, floodlit tennis courts, play area and club facility for the young ones, library and even offers some shopping opportunity in the island’s boutique.
The resort is also home to the largest infinity pool in the Maldives, measuring a whooping 750 square metres. Being the visual centerpiece of the resort, the pool seems to blend technology and nature, flowing around a stately banyan tree.
UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
The nature is the biggest attraction of Dusit Thani. The resort is located in the centre of Baa Atoll, where the rich underwater life has earned it the UNESCO’s Biosphere Reserve status. It’s the first and only marine site in the country to achieve this.
Fantastic snorkelling and diving is guaranteed—and for the land-lubbers the resort’s resident marine biologist is on hand to talk about the sea life.
