We have booked to stay at Dusit Thani next March (7th time to Maldives). We booked a few months ago so we could use our Avios to secure BA flights and ever since then I have been fretting that I may have made the wrong choice. Our other option was Anantara Kihavah and I am leaning towards switching to that resort. The main reason we opted for DT is that at the time it seemed to be getting better reviews for its house reef but I notice that whilst AK does not have such a good house reef it does have an abundance of marine life which we prefer over coral. I really like the fact that at AK you can walk around the island uninterrupted and it looks much "prettier" - but a couple of things make me hesitate. Those being is it as "barefoot luxury" as DT and is it perhaps more family friendly? We stayed at Huvafen Fushi this year and it was perfect!
I realise some of you have answered a similar question I posted a while ago but I am a victim of reading too many reviews on TA which has made me question our choice again so any comments or thoughts would be very appreciated.
