Thai paradise in the Maldives

Dusit Thani Maldives a touch of Thai in paradise

Imagine a luxurious tropical resort framed by snow white sandy beaches and lush palm fronds on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll – and discover the Dusit Thani Maldives. Opened just recently, this lavish five-star resort is surrounded by a 360-degree coral reef with a turquoise lagoon and a verdant landscape.  Secluded on the almost untouched Baa Atoll isle, Dusit Thani Maldives is jut 35 minutes by seaplane from the capital Malé, and 10 minutes by speedboat from the new domestic airport.

A paradise for snorkelers and divers, Dusit Thani Maldives is surrounded by a bustling coral reef that is the Maldives’ first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, home to marine life including eagle rays, manta rays, a variety of turtle species and the endangered whale shark. A remarkable house reef wrapping entirely around the island allows guests to swim the 360-degree faroe reef system and three underwater caves alongside schools of banner fish, big-eye trevallys and other diverse marine life.  This environment is home to everything from the ocean’s gentle giants, whale sharks, to ‘Nemo’- like clownfish and, with a little luck, even dolphins and turtles.

Guests who don’t know their manta ray from their monkfish but would like to, can consult the island’s onsite Marine Biologist Lauren Arthur, who invites “those who really want to take advantage of our unique site to explore the reef during both day and night. Guests may even join reef clean-ups and monitor sea turtle nesting habits whilst staying at the most beautiful resort in the Maldives.”
