Amazing resort You should always go for the Delux Villa with a pool. We liked it more than the water Villa, cause we liked the beach. The sand is ok but you can find islands with better sand Naan our butler was amazing and very helpful I liked the Thai restaurant but my kids liked the sea grill The good generally is ok

Great place for relaxing and honey mooners. We booked an ocean villa which was very private and relaxing. The villa was clean and we didn't see any bugs, lizards in the villa during our stay. Also the Wi-Fi is very good all around the island. We had so much fun and activities from activity center ( paper making class, planting a tree of love, yoga, nature walk and tour) Also the diving center was excellent (jet skii, infletables, snoorkling, and manta watching trip). The food were amazing especially the floating breakfast in pool. In general the resort is the best for any one who want to have a luxurious and close to nature trip And the best of all is the staff who were very kind and hospital.

My wife and I visited Dusit Thani recently. We had high expectations after watching this resort for a while now. Sadly the overall experience fell short of our expectations. This was our tenth time to the Maldives. Each time we have chosen a different resort and island based on our main focus which is diving. The truth of the Maldives is that 90 percent of resorts have the same product. What separates the good from the mediocre is location, service, food, entertainment, facilities and value. The really good ones excel in more areas than they suck. Location: The location of the resort is very good IF you are coming to visit Hanifaru bay during manta season. This was manta season but sadly the mantas only arrived in the last two days of our stay. If you are out of Manta season and looking for good diving then the Southern atolls offer far better diving. Service: 1. The general manager is very involved and present. He greeted us both on arrival and departure and he checked in on us a few times during our stay, excellent service. 2. The personal butler. For us this is something we can do without. If I need to book a restaurant then the effort of calling the restaurant direct is less than having to call the butler who then calls the restaurant and then calls you back to confirm. On top of this we had an issue where we asked for extra pillows, didn’t receive them for two days and then were told we must be mistaken as housekeeping had delivered them. On top of this our butler basically scolded us for not booking a restaurant before arriving. This was after the main buffet was not available due to limited occupancy. Not a fan of being scolded by service staff. 3. Dive center. Service as expected but no more. Disappointed that after an ear injury kept me from diving they didn’t manage to contact us for 2 snorkel trips that happened as a result of a mass manta sighting. We felt that this was very disappointing as the dive center was well aware that manta season was the whole reason for the visit. We only found out about the excursion through another diver who was contacted and went on both excursions, when we saw them at our departure. A big letdown especially since the island was only 40% occupied and a few phone calls would have found us. 4. Reception/accounts. Due to in room check in which is very nice we only used reception on the day of departure while waiting for the seaplane and the night before while settling the bill. Adequate but I was blown away by their refusal to accept Euro cash to settle the account. Never have I been told that a major currency is not an acceptable form of payment. Ridiculous! Food. The island has 3 choices for food. The main buffet area, a small “cafe” at the pool and a Thai restaurant and bar. The main buffet restaurant was open for breakfast but closed for all but 3 of the 9 nights we were there, again because of occupancy. In principle I understand how this was necessary but in practice it didn’t serve us well. The cafe has a very limited menu (especially if you are eating 2 meals a day there for 9 days) and the Thai restaurant food is good but not to everyone’s taste. Typically the buffets at resorts are so varied that you would only use the a la carte restaurant for a special meal during your stay. We were disappointed that we were not told of this limitation before and we feel that the alternatives were too limited. The breakfast choices were also limited again due to occupancy. Not the high standards that we are used to in the Maldives. Entertainment. There was a DJ for a few hours on a few days at the bar area. We don’t expect to be entertained on holiday so it meant nothing to us but if you are used to some entertainment, as we have seen at other resorts, then be aware that there may be none. Facilities. 1. Room. We booked a beach pool villa. It has everything you would expect and the pictures on the website are accurate. The room was very comfortable and there was nothing lacking at all. Service of the rooms twice a day was done while we were out diving or eating. Couldn’t want anything more. 2. Dive Center. As expected in the Maldives. Good facilities and new dive gear available if you don’t have your own. Aside from the disappointment of no contact for the mantas the dive center performed adequately. The dive boat was large, fairly new and the boat staff were helpful. 3. Spa. Expensive but luxurious. Treatments were good and everything was as expected. The spa is located conveniently in the center of the island and feels like a serene escape. Worth a visit. 4. Restaurants. As discussed earlier. All 3 have lovely settings to enhance the experience. Staff in all the restaurants were friendly and efficient. Personally I can do without the constant attempts at banter but I’m a grumpy old man and no, I don’t watch cricket or soccer. I understand that this connection with tourists may bring in better tips but I don’t need it, thanks. Value. Dusit Thani doesn’t offer better value than other resorts in the Maldives, in my opinion. We paid about 25% more for Dusit than we typically spend at a resort in the Maldives but didn’t see a difference. Other resorts have better facilities (Finolhu and Centara Grand) better food (Vakarufahli and Villamendhu) better dive centers (Full Moon and Kureedu) better house reef (Vilureef) and better service, most of the above. One last gripe, service fees. It’s common now in the Maldives that the price you see excludes a 10% service charge and then a 12% tax on top of that. I prefer to tip individually for service, but that’s a personal preference. In a nutshell, sadly you can get better than Dusit delivered for less money.

Picturesque island, spacious enough. Great house reef with a few turtles living here. Friendly staff, but the service / capacity of going 1 step further is limited for a 5*. Nice rooms, very good spa experience! Food, on the other hand, could be better and more choice (apart from breakfasts which were great).
