Bangkok--8 Nov--Dusit Thani Maldives

Dusit Thani Maldives, a luxury Thai-inspired resort on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, was recently named the winner of four prestigious categories of the Haute Grandeur Global Awards 2019, held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, followed swiftly by a regional win in the World Luxury Hotel Awards, held in Rovaniemi, Finland.

At a glittering awards ceremony attended by representatives from many of the world's leading hotel companies, the award-winning resort was declared Haute Grandeur Global's Best Beach Resort in the Indian Ocean, Best All-Inclusive Family Hotel on a Global Level, Best All-Inclusive Resort on a Global Level, and Best Wedding Retreat on a Global Level.

The success was shortly followed by another impressive win – this time in the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2019, where the resort was named regional winner of the Luxury Beach Hotel category.

Established in 2014 as an independent and unbiased initiative to honour the very highest achievements from across the global hotel industry, the Haute Grandeur Global Awards is designed to celebrate the very best in hotel experiences across seven continents, 172 countries and 90 categories. Winners are selected annually based on quality feedback from guests, rather than quantity of votes by a panel of judges or the general public.

Also organised annually, the World Luxury Hotel Awards is a renowned global organisation that provides recognition to luxury hotels for their world-class facilities and excellent services. Awards are presented to luxury hotels in over 50 different categories on a country, regional and global basis. Public votes select all winners.

"We are deeply honoured to have been recognised for these awards and I would like to thank the whole team for their amazing contribution towards our success," said Mr Thomas Weber, General Manager, Dusit Thani Maldives. "To be recognised as the best hotel in so many categories reflects our commitment to service excellence across the board. We now look forward to doing everything we can to retain these titles while striving to become even better."

Located just 35 minutes by seaplane from capital city Male, and 10 minutes by speedboat from Dharavandhoo Domestic Airport in Baa Atoll, Dusit Thani Maldives comprises 94 villas and residences, along with three restaurants, two bars, and Dusit's signature Devarana Spa. The resort is surrounded by a rich house reef, white sandy beaches and a turquoise lagoon. A well-equipped Kids Club adds to the resort's family-friendly appeal.
