EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPES CLIENTS SAY

Thank you so very much for helping us to organise what was a very memorable and special honeymoon.
What a magical place!!! The villa we stayed in was tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

The staff at the Dusit Thani were so friendly and welcoming and loved having a chat. We particularly enjoyed the food on offer and we did a thai cooking class as well during our time there which we highly recommend! The included Christmas eve dinner was just spectacular - we've never been to a buffet feast of so many kinds of foods like that before.....we just wished our stomachs could have expanded enough to eat more!!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the lagoon water villa and often utilised the back deck steps into the ocean for our daily snorkelling adventures. The island was a decent size - we did not get bored at all and thought that the facilities/activities on offer were pretty good.
For a resort that only opened this year (2012), it is surely a great find and we would definitely love to come back for a visit in future.
Thanks again for all your help - already friends have seen our pictures and are asking who helped us book everything and who recommended this place etc etc and we have mentioned you guys at Extraordinary Escapes. We really liked being able to do this all through email/internet.

The Dusit Thani is a picture perfect island in the Baa Atoll, an Atoll with a reputation as one of the most marine rich Atolls in the Maldives. It is only 10 minutes by speedboat from the world famous Hanifaru Bay, where you can snorkel with Manta Rays and Whale Sharks during season.

The Dusit Thani is an elegant Thai owned and inspired resort. The Villas are stylish and modern, yet have a very warm island feeling that comes from the use of soft cool colours to decorate the villas. They have high rafted ceilings, island style ceiling fans and a mixture of timber and cushioned rattan furniture.

The Dusit Thani has a stunning infinity edge pool that is the largest in the Maldives, measuring 750 square metres. It is curved in shape following the natural shape of the island, with gorgeous little private areas around the pool to relax.

The house reef at Dusit Thani actually encircles the island extending 360 degrees around. Every villa has their own private butler and with multiple dining options and a beautiful Thai inspired Spa, the Dusit Thani is the perfect island escape.

Extraordinary Escapes' Favourite feature: The main pool at Dusit Thani is absolutely beautiful. With a picture perfect outlook and private areas around the pool to relax, it is an amazing vista.
