Dusit Thani Maldives – ‘the town in heaven’

Originating from the ‘Land of Smiles’ a.k.a. Thailand, and spanning over 65 years in service, Dusit International speaks for itself. From its gracious Thai hospitality, coupled with little touches of Thai culture, Dusit International is harmonious in the name it has created for itself globally. 

Amongst its most well-known properties, Dusit Thani Maldives, that translates to a ‘town in heaven’ is truly a lush haven nestled comfortably in Baa Atoll’s Mudhdhoo Island. Accessible in 35 minutes via a panoramic seaplane flight, or 20 minutes via a domestic flight plus a mere 10 minutes on a speedboat from Dharavandhoo Airport, Dusit Thani Maldives invites you to bask in the serenity of the Maldives even before you reach the island. 

Bestowed with a 360-degree strikingly diverse house reef, infringed with indigenous tropical vegetation spread over 16 hectares, the island is unanimously unspoilt. Be it for veterans of the sea, luxury dwellers or families alike, Dusit Thani Maldives has a little bit of everything to offer for the traveller seeking gracious luxury. The island’s 94 villas are tastefully decorated with hints of warm Thai heritage, blended beautifully with Maldivian culture, truly an offering of paradise for its inhabitants. 

The Beach Villas, with or without a plunge pool, leads out to your own sheltered spot of the beach, whilst from the Ocean Villas, you can explore the marine plethora leisurely or even take a dip in the plunge pool. The versatile room categories offer absolute privacy in a tranquil environment, where one can take relaxation to a heavenly state of being. 

The culinary experience at Dusit Thani Maldives is unmatched; proven by the numerous times its Thai restaurant Benjarong has been recognised worldwide for the authentically delightful Thai cuisine. Sealed with the Thai Select accolade, which is a recognition of its authenticity, amongst many other worldwide awards, Benjarong excels in its take of Thai cuisine. 

In addition to Benjarong, The Market offers appetising cuisine at its buffet restaurant from its full spread breakfasts to its themed dinner nights; it’s the go-to restaurant. Sea Grill, specialised for fresh seafood and grilled steaks, will take you through a pleasing gastronomic journey that will intensify your sense of taste. The Sala Bar, with its little canapés, is the perfect spot to settle in and witness the mesmerising colours of the sunset with a sundowner. 

Situated next to one of the largest infinity pools in the Maldives, with a Banyan Tree providing the ultimate shade in the centre, the Sand Bar offers quick bites whilst you take your sweet time lounging with the oceanic view seen from all angles. The unique Borderless Dining concept adapted at the resort, gives the option of dining at surreal settings around the island, with specially designed menus to choose from. 

The town in heaven isn’t without its garden in heaven to indulge its guests in total pampering that will take you on a transcending journey revitalising your being. Deverana Spa offers a blend of long-standing Eastern therapies combined with modern-day practices bringing about a holistic spa journey that shines within and beyond you. The deluxe treetop or elevated treatment rooms truly ignites the senses, lifting your mood to one of serenity and prosperity; guests can also prefer to be pampered at the two treatments on the ground level.

Deverana Spa uses its own organically-sourced therapeutic formulations, from the body scrubs to the pure essential oils used for its spa treatments to nurture the body, mind and spirit. For facial treatments, Algotherm – the thalassotherapy brand – is used to heighten your spa experience further. 

In its mission to lessen its carbon footprint on the environment, Dusit Thani Maldives has taken initiatives from reducing the usage of plastic to installing solar panels on the rooftops of its main buildings, cutting down diesel consumption up to 86,500 litres annually. The initiative lessens carbon dioxide emissions by 229 tonnes, approximately 173 trips from the Maldives to the United Kingdom.
