I’ve written several pieces on Maldives now, but one can never really get tired of this breathtakingly beautiful destination. Taken into consideration that it’s also a country heavily affected by climate changes, there’s no time to loose if you want to experience a piece of heaven. Welcome to Dusit Thani – a luxury resort dedicated to eco friendly solutions without cutting back on comfort.
World class hospitality
In Thai, Dusit Thani means ‘town in heaven’, and if you ever come to visit one of the chain’s 29 resorts, you’ll understand why. I had never become acquainted with Dusit Thani before my visit to Maldives in June this year, but when I did, I knew I certainly had to come back at some point. There’s no hospitality like Thai hospitality – add to that serene surroundings on a remotely located exotic island, glistening azure seawater and beaches as white as snow: that’s Dusit Thani on Mudhdhoo Island in Maldives.
Someone once told me that Maldives is the perfect place to escape if you’re suffering from a heart ache or simply just need to get away from it all. That’s nothing but the truth. How could you not re-start and do some serious soul healing in such beautiful surroundings? After all, that’s what many guests come here for. And Dusit Thani is just the ideal location to do that. With all the regular comforts of a five star hotel, the resort covers the entire island meaning that you can play tennis, bike, run, do yoga, enjoy a massage, have dinner on the beach, dive and jump directly into the azure Indian Ocean from your private villa – without disturbing anyone. The only way to get to Mudhdhoo Island is by boat or seaplane and I’d recommend staying for a minimum of 3 nights to unwind completely.
Dedication to sustainability
What I really love about this resort, though – and Dusit Thani in general – is their positive approach to environmental and social sustainability. The chain follow the examples set by EarthCheck (the world’s leading certification and advisory group for travel and tourism). What does that mean to you as a traveler? Overall, you’re supporting a healthier climate simply because Dusit Thani is committed to lower green house gas emissions, manage fresh water resources more effectively, handle solid waste management and much more. And at Mudhdhoo Island specifically, the resort works with eco system conservation and management, i.a. due to the area’s large existence of coral reef and natural wild life. As a hotel chain, Dusit Thani makes an example of how to combine luxury with sustainability: something, which is not only possible in our time, but absolutely necessary.
