A tropical paradise in Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort

Now taking on the upper-upscale Dusit Thani brand, the deluxe Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort is designed to blend Dusit’s unique brand of Thai-inspired graciousness hospitality with the warm Filipino hospitality of the Mindanao region to deliver an unmatched level of service and memorable experience to its guests.

Set within a former coconut plantation and surrounded by unspoiled reef, the resort has been patterned after the award-winning Dusit Thani Maldives on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, to offer an exotic getaway amidst nature. The design and architecture of the villas were inspired by the tropical modernist designs of the late architect Geoffrey Bawa and the colonial Sri Lankan coconut plantations of the 1920s.
