Thailand-based Dusit Hotels and Resorts has announced a new venture in the Maldives, signing an agreement with Pearl Atoll Pvt Ltd to manage the dusitD2 Feydhoo Maldives – an all-inclusive lifestyle resort set to open its doors in the fourth quarter of 2024. 

Located on a private island near the capital of Malé City, the resort will offer 125 keys under Dusit’s upscale dusitD2 brand, marking the company’s foray into the ‘all-inclusive’ segment.

The resort, designed to provide an immersive experience, will feature spacious overwater villas and family suites ranging from 77 to 319 square meters. 

Guests can indulge in various amenities, including a kids’ club, multiple dining options serving global cuisines, a fully equipped gym, and a signature Namm Spa offering traditional Thai massage therapies and beauty treatments. 

The resort will also offer three main private beaches for relaxation and a smaller ‘picnic beach’ for unique dining experiences.

Located just five minutes from Velana International Airport by speedboat, the developers plan to leverage the resort’s proximity by introducing a resort-based entertainment hub and a small convention centre, expanding the guest experience beyond the core resort offerings. 

Rudimentary attention will be given to seamlessly blending all resort elements to ensure harmony with the surrounding environment. Dusit’s group-wide sustainability program, the Tree of Life, which aims to minimize environmental impact, further reinforces this.

This venture marks Dusit’s second presence in the Maldives, complementing its existing luxury offering, Dusit Thani Maldives, located on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll – the Maldives’ first UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

Gilles Cretallaz, COO of Dusit International, expressed excitement about expanding their footprint in the Maldives by introducing the all-inclusive concept. 

“The Maldives is a strategic market for us, and this exciting addition complements our presence in the luxury segment by offering a distinct lifestyle experience for families and young couples seeking an unforgettable and accessible Maldivian escape,” he said, adding that the company is committed to delivering innovative offerings and exceptional service.

Fan Jianglin, Managing Director of Pearl Atoll Pvt Ltd, expressed his enthusiasm about partnering with Dusit International for their first resort venture in the Maldives. He cited Dusit’s renowned Thai-inspired hospitality as a critical factor in their decision and expressed confidence in the success of dusitD2 Feydhoo Maldives.

With over 300 properties across 18 countries, Dusit International continues to expand its global presence, offering a diverse portfolio of resorts, hotels, and luxury villas.
