The Dusit Thani Maldives — opened on 6 February 2012. Surrounded by a vibrant 360-degree coral reef with a turquoise lagoon, this island property features pearl white sandy beaches and a rich landscape of verdant vegetation. Dusit Thani Maldives is considered a landmark addition to this fast expanding brand.
“Dusit Thani Maldives will elevate the brand to a new level,” says Mr. Chanin Donavanik, CEO of Dusit International. “This property represents a milestone in our strategic expansion plans. As we gain momentum in the region, we look forward to advancing the guest experience throughout our group of hotels and resorts.”
Located on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, Dusit Thani Maldives is 35-minutes by seaplane from the capital Malé, and 10-mintues by speedboat from the new domestic airport (openning 2012.) Blending Maldivian architecture with Thai artistry, the 100-villa resort features Dusit’s signature Devarana Spa, uniquely elevated within a grove of coconut palm trees. The resort’s centrepiece is the expansive infinity swimming pool, the largest in the Maldives, a full 750 square metres designed around an ancient banyan tree. Dusit Thani Maldives is an ideal haven to explore the marine biodiversity of Baa Atoll, the first UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in the country.
The resort’s 100 villas and residences are sanctuaries for relaxation and furnished with the latest technology. Beach Villas offer 122 square metres of comfortable living space, many complete with private pools.
