DUSIT THANI MALDIVES WINS GOLD TRAVEL WEEKLY MAGELLAN AWARD

deck-2-a

Dusit Thani Maldives, a Thai inspired 5-star luxury resort, recently won, for the second year running, the coveted Gold medal in the luxury hotel/resort category of the prestigious Travel Weekly Magellan Awards.
Arranged by US based publication Travel Weekly, an influential B2B news resource for the travel industry, The Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a unique panel of top travel professionals representing the best names and most accomplished leaders from the industry. Entries do not compete with one another, instead they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the extensive experience of Travel Weekly.
Located on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll – Maldives’ first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve – Dusit Thani Maldives comprises 94 luxury villas set on stilts overlooking pristine white sands and the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
Guests can dive and snorkel with the best snorkeling set, swim in the oversized infinity swimming pool, or indulge in a serene treatment at one of Devarana Spa’s treetop treatment pods. Gastronomes, meanwhile, are well catered for at the resort’s five award-winning restaurants and bars, including the signature Thai-inspired restaurant, Benjarong, which serves modern interpretations of classic Thai dishes in a stunning setting right over the water.
Joachim Schuette, General Manager at Dusit Thani Maldives, said: “We are delighted to receive this prestigious award for the second year running, as it truly highlights our continuous commitment to enhancing our resort and creating even more memorable experiences for our guests.”

MoVida for tapas and Taxi Kitchen for people watching. Agreeing with Elliot – The Prince is very hard to beat for urban luxury living.

Honeymoon Couple in maldives Chris & Venessa

Casa Camper in Barcelona is also a worthy addition to the list. The suites are split into two separate rooms; one for sleeping quarters, and the other a living-roomesque space with a hammock running across. Quirky in an urban sort of way

Honeymoon Couple in maldives Chris & Venessa

Hey, I wonder whether these hammams allow couples in together? Or is it seperate for male/female? Not sure if the missus will feel entirely comfortable being on her own for a long period of time…Also, I’m quite keen to experience an authentic hammam – do you have any names? Don’t really want to use the hotel one.

Thanks,
