Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort Welcome Center
Dusit Rebrands Luxury Resort in Philippines
Rebranding – 18 Rooms
The Beach Club at Lubi Plantation Island is now operating as the Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort.
Located on a private island in the Davao Gulf, the Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort is one of three Dusit properties that were launched in partnership with Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation (TLDC) in Davao this year. The other properties being the dusitD2 Davao and Dusit Thani Residence Davao.
Set within a former coconut plantation and surrounded by unspoiled reef, the resort has been patterned after the Dusit Thani Maldives on Mudhdhoo Island in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. 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.
From nine villas, the rebranded resort now offers a total of 18 villas, half of which include plunge pools facing the quiet and private beach.
The 114 sqm two-bedroom seafront villas can accommodate up to six people each, and feature private terraces and beautiful open-air garden bathrooms with large soaker bathtubs.
Alongside original beach club offerings including Tarictic Grill all-day dining restaurant, a beachfront infinity pool, a fitness centre, Dusit's signature Namm Spa, and facilities for snorkeling, jet skiing, and kayaking, guests can now enjoy the new game and entertainment centre, a tennis court, a western restaurant and bar called The Mill, as well as a fully equipped dive centre.
The 1950s-inspired Tamsi Hall is available for special meetings and events for up to 160 guests, while a church with a capacity of 200 persons is ideal for weddings.
To reach the island, guests can choose between a 30-minute catamaran boat ride from the Port Jetty at dusitD2 Davao and Dusit Thani Residence Davao, passing through the beautiful scenery of Samal Island; or travel for 1.5 hours by land, passing through coconut plantations, and then take a 5-minute boat ride at Pindasan Port.
