Now Open: Dusit Thani Maldives

Thailand’s Dusit International has expanded into the Maldives with the opening of its first resort on the island nation, blending its graceful Thai hospitality with unsurpassed luxury. Located on Mudhdhoo Island encircled by white sandy beaches, a rich house reef and turquoise lagoon, the 100-key Dusit Thani Maldives is 35 minutes by seaplane from Male and a haven from which to explore Baa Atoll, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.


Maldivian architecture and Thai artistry feature in the villas and residences, which are furnished with modern comforts and the latest technology. Each offers generous living space, with a sundeck, daybed, sala and private pool. Inside, guests can luxuriate with King-size and twin bedding, outdoor rainforest shower, flatscreen television with Bose surround sound entertainment system, iPod docking station, complimentary high-speed internet access, in-villa wine cooler and Nespresso coffee machine.


A fine selection of dining options with spectacular views await guests. Market, the all-day dining restaurant, is a convenient venue for light meals and snacks, while the Sea Grill serves up fresh ocean catch together with high-quality steaks. Benjarong Thai restaurant delivers the authentic flavours from the brand’s native Thailand, complemented by the relaxed vibe of the Sala Bar above. Rounding up the quintet is Sand Bar, the perfect spot to socialize and mingle over a cocktail from the extensive menu.


Dusit Thani’s signature Devarana Spa, uniquely elevated above a grove of coconut trees, provides a sanctuary in which guests can enjoy therapies and treatments rooted in traditional wellness principles. A 750-square meter infinity pool (the largest in the Maldives), serves as the centerpiece of the resort, while other recreational facilities include a fully-equipped fitness studio with personal trainer and yoga instructor, flootlit tennis courts, library and beach service. A dive centre for watersports can organize trips to any of the dive sites of Baa Atoll, such as the spectacular Hanifaru Huraa, a seasonal feeding ground for manta rays and whale sharks.


With the opening of the Dusit Thani Maldives, Dusit International’s portfolio now covers 20 properties across 5 brands. The group is poised to open new hotels and resorts in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Goa, Jaipur, Jeddah, New Delhi, Pasadena and Sanya.
