Best Maldives island I've visited by far.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Dec 2015via mobile
Where to start?!

From the moment we got off the plane, the staff at Dusit Thani took care of us.

This is the 6th Maldives island we've visited - the service, facilities, food and overall holiday was by far the best we've experienced.

We travelled with 3 children aged 3, 7 and 9, which is always a worry when travelling to more luxurious places. The staff made us feel so assured - after a few days they were off on their bikes exploring the island, nipping into the bar, chatting to the bar tenders, they made them their own cocktails, they were all brilliant.

I can't praise the manager and everyone we met on the island enough.

Thanks for a super holiday.

PS. Special mention to Magic of Maldives who we booked the holiday through. Fabulous service from booking through to asking how the holiday was afterwards.

Dusit Thani is conveniently located (20mins by Sea plane from Male) on its own picturesque Island. All aspects from the personal greeting at our arrival to our departure were made to feel special.

Our every request was catered for. All issues were addressed immediately with our comfort the first priority of the resort.

In short the staff were amazing and our butler organised everything seamlessly. When our daughter needed the doctor the whole resort seemed to be on hand to support, whilst the doctor was highly professional and reassuring.

In short it was an awesome room (ocean villa) with great food and great service throughout.

Thank you Dusit,

K.Hassan

My family and I had an amazing time while we were staying at Dusit Thani Maldives. Initially, we were worried since we have two seniors within our group (82 & 85 yrs old) since they might have trouble moving around the resort, but we couldn't be more wrong. Our grandmothers were provided with great service from our butler who provide us with golf cart service during the entire trip. I have been to Maldives three times and I can say that the service here is a level above the other two resorts that I have visited.

Regarding the food, I recommend every guest that planned to come here to visit the Benjarong Thai restaurant. I am from Thailand and I can say that they can cook very good Thai food here. However, I think the buffet at the Market restaurant still has some room for improvement. We stay in ocean villa and the room is very nice and was kept in very good condition.

All in all, I would like to thanks all the stuff,especially K. Chris (resident manager) and K. Zoe (Our butler), for giving us such a memorable experience. I would recommend the guest reading this review to try an visit Dusit Thaini Maldives.

We had the pleasure of staying just after the grand opening in one of the Ocean Villas. The rooms were beautifully designed and well appointed. Relaxing in the pool while overlooking the ocean was extremely pleasurable. The main pool is beautifully designed. We enjoyed multiple spa treatments and the "treehouse" concept is quite unique and nice. While some may complain about the additional seaplane flight/cost, we actually found it one of the more enjoyable parts of the vacation as well. All of our meals were very good. The staff was attentive and kind and not intrusive. Would definitely visit again.

Dear ThePrincelyTraveller,

Thank you for taking the time to share your fantastic experience here on Trip Advisor. It is always a pleasure to know when guests are delighted with their Dusit Thani experience.

We appreciate your taking notice of the intricacies and design details that we have incorporated into our Villas, especially the Ocean Villas where the picturesque views and sound of the waves create an ideal setting for relaxation.

Our signature Devarana Spa is devoted to premium treatments focused on pampering and wellness, we are delighted to read that you have thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful rejuvenating treatments we have on offer.

Seaplane transfers are definitely a more interesting choice. The experience of taking off from the sea, and flying above the islands with a panoramic view is something not all destinations can offer, and we are thrilled that you were able to enjoy this moment.

It is our aim to deliver the Dusit standard of excellent service at all times and we are honoured by your kind words. Khob khun krub and please let us know if we can assist to plan your next Maldivian adventure, we look forward to welcome you back to our sparkling shores!

Sunny regards,

My girlfriends and I recently travelled to the Maldives for a long weekend, and had the most amazing time at the Dusit Thani Maldives. From the moment we landed to saying our goodbye to the Maldives, the service was unbelievable. The Dusit representative met us upon arrival and immediately took care of checking us and our luggage in for the sea plane. She then accompanied us to sea plane departure area (about 10 minutes bus ride from the Male Airport), and welcomed us to the Dusit private lounge. When it was time to leave, she once again accompanied us to the hold room and made sure we were checked in and ready to go. The sea plane was about 50 minutes (including a short drop off at another island hotel). We were greeted at the Dusit by the General Manager and his staff. It was such an overwhelmingly warm welcome! We were then taken to our Ocean Water Villa, with our luggage to follow. The room is huge with a large terrace and plunge pool overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately, the water just outside of the villa was a bit choppy with large rocks, so I wasn't able to take advantage of taking a dip in our "backyard ocean." Not a complaint at all, considering the beauty of the whole resort. I had been to the Maldives before, and my biggest complaint about the previous resort was that the food selection was extremely poor and limited. Not the Dusit! From breakfast, to the mid day snacks/tapas, and dinner, everything was delicious! We were in amazement that they had such amazing quality and fresh ingredients considering that the hotels in the Maldives are so isolated. We couldn't compliment the chefs enough! We dined at the Sea Grill and also their Thai restaurant for dinner and The Market for breakfast. We enjoyed every single dish! Surrounded by the beauty of the Maldives and the amazing food and drinks already warrant an amazing holiday, but what I believe set Dusit Thani Maldives over and above was their service. From the General Manager to the bartender Khasmir (sp?) and everyone in-between, we couldn't have felt more welcome. Everyone on the island knew our name and would greet us by name. They were all so friendly and kind and were always more than willing to assist us with any of our needs. Our villa butler and cleaner really took such great care of us during our entire stay. I would recommend this resort over and over again, and I look forward to another visit!
We stayed in an Ocean Water Villa with breakfast included. The prices were quite reasonable for F&B, especially for the Maldives. We also had a spa session each, taking advantage of their specials. 90 minutes for USD150...a great deal! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do any of the many activities on offer. Hopefully, next time! Thank you Dusit Thani Maldives!
