A week in Paradise!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Apr 2017
Just returned from a week of pure bliss at Dusit Thani, and when I say none of us (myself, husband, and 2 boys) wanted to leave, it is no exaggeration. From the moment we landed at Male Airport, we were made to feel like celebrities. There was a representative present to receive us and handle our luggage, transfer us to the domestic terminal, and from there, we were whisked off to a domestic flight and then a quick speedboat ride to arrive at Dust Thani, where we were greeted by the GM Mr. Johann and his team, along with our lovely butler Hannan. That was our first taste of the unmatched hospitality that spoils you at Dust Thani. Our room was well appointed, with everything one could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The pillows deserve a special mention, because I have never slept better on a vacation! I actually still miss my vacation pillow, even though I am home, which almost never happens. There is an additional pillow menu, if you want more options. Breakfast had something for everyone, from omelettes, to fruits, curries, noodles, wontons, nuggets, fresh juices, the list could go on. A special shoutout to Vinod, who made countless pancakes for my son, making sure he was well fed. Kids Club was fantastic as it kept the kids busy after breakfast, till 1pm. There were different activities everyday to keep them occupied and entertained as there was little they could do during the afternoon heat. Naaz at the Kids club made sure she took fun photos of the kids and shared them with us to add to our memories. Food at all the restaurants was great, but Thai Food at Benjarong was possibly the one of the best Thai food I have ever tasted. Overall, while Maldives has been blessed with unmatched natural beauty, the hospitality of the people at Dusit Thani is what made this vacation so special for us. When we left, each one of us felt like we were leaving behind our family away from home.

This post was long overdue. My husband , myself and our then one and half baby stayed at this amazing resort in Novemeber 2015 and it was a dream !!! The resort itself was so amazing and the staff was excellent . I specifically wanted to mention two male staff at the breakfast/dinner area..Halim I think the name was along with another gentleman whom unfortunately cant recall his name used to take our child and show him flowers from the garden as well as cut fruits into small pieces so that my husband and I could enjoy our meal. I highly recommend this resort especially to families with little kids !!! *THUMBS UP*

The house reef is well preserved and much nicer than reefs elsewhere. We really enjoyed snorkeling.
I went their with my wife to celebrate my birthday. Overall excellent experience and the service was impeccable. Very friendly staff that try their best to satisfy. Our butler Muhey was amazing and did all he could to make our stay memorable. We had a problem on arrival where our seaplane was delayed and the management made every possible effort to make it up for us. My only remark is that the breakfast buffet could be richer but this is definitely a minor comment compared to the overall experience

From the moment we stepped off the seaplane and stepped onto the white sand every moment has been idyllic - the staff have been attentive and surpassed all expectations - the setting, the choice of restaurants, the food, the Sand Bar watching the glorious sunsets, the Spa, the gym totally outstanding
We will definitely go back to this little piece of paradise

We just came back from our honeymoon in Dusit Thani Maldives and we can't believe that it was real. The place is just paradise on earth from the jungle to the room to the spa to the food quality to the amazing fish/sea turtles we've seen like snorkeling (it was like being in the backstage of Finding Nemo!). The staff is just beyond expectations and they were always one step ahead on anything we could think of.

A bit pricey for our pocket but it worths every $.
