“We are delighted to open the new Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri, Bangkok and bring our unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality to this prestigious neighbourhood,” said Ms Suphajee Suthumpun, Group CEO, Dusit International.
“As this property is not too far from our flagship Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel, which is currently undergoing strategic redevelopment as part of the landmark Dusit Central Park project, it is ideally positioned to meet the needs of our existing customers while delighting many new ones too, keeping our brand top of mind in suitably elegant fashion.”
In Q3 2019, DTC will also launch Baan Dusit Thani, a high-end restaurant, bar and coffee shop set within a traditional Thai house on Soi Saladaeng, Silom Road, Bangkok. This unique venture is set to serve signature dishes from Dusit Thani Bangkok’s most popular outlets.
Dusit International was founded in 1948 by Honorary Chairperson Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui, whose first hotel was the Princess on Bangkok’s Charoenkrung Road.
Today the company is a leader in hotel management and hospitality education and comprises a unique international portfolio of distinctive hotels and resorts operating under four brands: Dusit Thani, dusitD2, Dusit Princess and Dusit Devarana.
They have more than 50 properties in the pipeline across key destinations.
The company recently entered the vacation rental market with the full acquisition of Elite Havens, the leading provider of high-end vacation rentals in Asia, and it also announced plans to enter the lifestyle market with the launch of ASAI Hotels, a distinctive new brand designed to link curious, millennial-minded travellers with authentic local experiences in cities and resort destinations worldwide.
The company also operates the signature Devarana Spa and has a fast-growing Education Division. The latter, established in 1993, comprises Dusit Thani College, which offers vocational and postgraduate hospitality degrees at campuses in Bangkok and Pattaya; and Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Culinary School.
