Local Students Visit Dusit Thani for Children’s Day
In celebration of Children’s Day (traditionally celebrated in the Maldives on 10 May), students from three local schools — Kihaadhoo, Dhonfanu, and Dharavandhoo School visited the luxury resort for an all-access tour. Students enjoyed a special fun-filled and educational day at Dusit Thani Maldives on 28 May 2022.
To kick off the day, the children gathered with their parents and teachers at the resort’s dedicated kids’ club, Baan Sanook, which means “home of fun” in Thai. The programme began with friendly introductions, a welcome speech, and fun team activities, where participants wore vibrant T-shirts specially designed and gifted to them for the occasion.
A back-of-house tour was organised for the students later which was led by the engineering department where they learned about how the resort operates, mingled with members of staff, and explored the Team Village, the laundry facilities, as well as the various types of guest villas on the island.
The students were offered delicious resort refreshments throughout the day which kept the children energised. The day ended with a sweet treat of ice cream at Thai restaurant Benjarong, where they gathered for a final photo to mark the end of this special event.
“We had such a wonderful time with the students,” says General Manager Thomas Weber. “We invite and connect with our young local communities as part of our CSR activities. For the children, it is a great opportunity to experience a resort, where perhaps relatives or their mother or father is working. For us, we are delighted to spend a day with the young generation of Maldivians and have a good time together. Perhaps we can inspire them to embrace a future career in hospitality. We trust they enjoyed it as much as we did.”
