We had our honeymoon in this heaven-on-earth hotel where we had the best time of our lives. I would highly recommend trying the lagoon lunch and the romantic dinner. Sand bar was my favorite place and their shisha is beyond exceptional. I would like to thank Mr. Watt, resident manager, for his warm hospitality, Shammoon our butler, Mohamed Ali from Sea Grill, Bob from Sand bar and all the rest of the staff who were really helpful and friendly throughout our journey. I would definitely love to visit this place again.

This is our third trip to the Maldives which is on the other side of the globe from San Antonio, Texas. A long haul but oh so well worth it. Our first trip was in November 2019 to Sun Siyam for two weeks which we really liked with six Resturants, great staff and service, super food and drinks all day long. Only small drawback was you had to take a boat To a reef to have quality snorkeling but our overwater villa was perfect with an infinity pool and steps down into the ocean. Our second trip was to the Dusit Thani in Feb for three weeks and we decided on the way home to Texas to return as soon as we could. Unfortunately Covid delayed us till Nov 17 when we arrived for a four week stay. Within days we extended to six weeks and since we were already here for Thanksgiving and Christmas we decided to extend (again) for New Year with departure 1/6/21. Not as big as Sun Siyam with three Resturants and bars and maybe only 200 guests but just spectacular if you are into snorkeling and diving. On three different occasions we were in the middle of 200+ manta rays (up close and personal) a very rare 20,000 lb whale shark, regular sharks, various types of rays, octopus, moray eels, and 1000’s of fish. Walk down 10 steps beside our infinity pool and you are in 3-5’ of water depending on tides surrounded by coral heads. As you snorkel out maybe 40 to 50 yards you view coral and fish and octopus and then you come to the edge of the reef which drops off straight down into the abyss. Snorkeling for an hour and a half gets you 3/4 of the way around the island and the sights are just fantastic in crystal clear water. If you are looking for golf courses, shopping, cars and people, don’t come here, you won’t find any of that other than a couple tennis courts and a fitness center. However, if you are looking for relaxation with daily amazing aquatic wonderland sights and pampered service, the Dusit Thani is the place for you to visit. Well worth the expense but a word of caution, make sure you book all inclusive (no real restrictions, only minor) in that food and beverage very expensive, otherwise go and enjoy. You just might act like us with continuing extensions!! BTW zero Covid very rigorous testing before you can fly into Male and then it is a sea plane ride (maybe 30-45 minutes to the island which is booked by the Dusit. You are met after customs by a hotel rep and taken care of all the way to the island.

We stayed at Dusit Thani, Maldives for our honeymoon and right from the time we landed at Male they made us feel at home. The island is about 35 minutes from Male by seaplane and occupies one of the most exquisite reefs (UN protected) in Maldives which is perfect for snorkelling. We stayed for 3 days in the deluxe beach villa and 2 days in the water villa. Both the rooms are deliciously made and offer direct access to the Indian Ocean and the reef. Dusit also has a lot of water activities on offer at their dive centre and an amazingly trained staff (Hussain, Saeed and Riza) who made it an amazing experience for us while doing snorkelling and jet skiing. Dusit also offers the world famous Devarana spa which is one of the best spa and massage centres in the world. We tried the signature massage and the experience was truly wonderful. While the island is beautiful and offers an amazing experience of Maldives, what makes Dusit truly stand out is their hospitality and always friendly staff. Right from our butler Muhey, the Chef Ravindra, the bar man at the sand bar (Priyantha) each and every staff at Dusit was always smiling and friendly. They also offer some amazing Thai food at their restaurant Benjarong which I think has won several awards in Thai cuisine. We were not disappointed. Overall kudos to Dusit for making our experience wonderful and we already miss the place and it’s hospitality! Looking forward to coming back soon!

Dusit is spectacular in every possible way. The location with the house reef, the setup of the resort, the hospitality, the service-minded staff, and the food of course! We were taken care of extremely well. Special shout out to Siraj, our butler who obliged all our requests. Ishaaq, Saeed, and Gerald made sure we had a great time whenever we were at the restaurants. We also used did scuba diving (thanks Riza) and the highlight of our trip was snorkeling with the manta rays, we got really lucky and sighted 250+ mantas! All in all, this was a trip like no other.
