It’s new…coming in December: Dusit Thani Maldives, being completed on Mudhdhoo Island, is a resort that will blend Thai hospitality and décor with top-of-the-line luxury. Only 40 minutes’ seaplane ride from the international airport, or 10 minutes by speedboat from the domestic airport, it’s an easy trip for the optimum in peace, quiet, and Maldives charm. Choose from private beach or ocean villas, stretched along the white sand beach seemingly into the sea itself — ideal for sleeping under the stars, in open-air rooms with just a thatched roof between you and the sky. Or, for pampering unlike any other place on earth, go for a session at Dervana spa — in a treetop pod, the only “in the trees” facility of its kind in the Maldives. (For those of you less courageous, there are ground-level pods as well!)

Besides lavish rooms, Dusit Thani offers a plethora of dining options: its flagship restaurant, Benjarong, is the place for the freshest Thai flavors. Try an international buffet for breakfast at The Market; the Sea Grill, as its name suggests, offers both the finest in seafood and steaks, with a romantic poolside setting and indoor or outdoor seating. When it’s time for liquid refreshment, the Sand Bar offers poolside service and a DJ on weekends; the Sala Bar, on the second floor of Benjarong, invites you to stargaze on the observation deck (complete with telescopes); and the Underground Wine Cellar will please the sommelier in you with wines from the far corners of the globe. Sound delicious? It’s meant to be: and it’s coming soon, at Dusit Thani.
