We’re starting to make a habit of coming to the Maldives; and who can resist because this place is just so amazing? For the first time, we’re also not staying at the Four Seasons, Landaa Giraavaru because Kirsten caught wind of the Dusit Thani’s soft opening, so we figured we should capitalise on the opening special offers and have a change of scenary.
The Dusit didn’t disappoint – the island was in pristine shape, and the only noticeable difference was in the quality of service, which wasn’t as sharp as the FS. I also thought that the food at the Dusit was very overpriced in areas; while the food was consistently good, it’s difficult to justify how a cheese and ham sandwich can be priced at $18 ++.
The Dusit is not cheap when it comes to activities and food, and you should be very careful to not get overcharged. Their cocktails are also on the very pricey side, and they aren’t very strong either, not to mention that some of their recipes of cocktail classic (like the pina colada) are extremely suspect.
