Dusit International has opened Dusit Princess Hotels & Resorts’ first resort hotel, the Dusit Princess Koh Chang, occupying 150 metres frontage on the beachfront of Ao Bai Lan.Octavio Gamarra, Senior Vice President of Dusit International, said, “This is Dusit Princess’s first resort property, since all our existing hotels have city locations. Koh Chang is the ideal site being the second largest island of Thailand from Phuket, and there are only a few 5-star resorts on the island. Dusit Princess Koh Chang is especially an exciting property for us, and will enable us to show to great advantage what we are able to do in building up a resort.”
The Dusit Princess Koh Chang resort has a total of 96 guest rooms: Superior, Pool Deluxe, Beachfront Deluxe, Pool Villas, Beachfront Villas and two suites, all with complete modern amenities and private balconies overlooking either a garden or sea view.
Dusit Princess Koh Chang’s signature restaurant, The Bay, provides all-day dining with international cuisine, located on the ground floor overlooking the sea. The Reef Bar is the specialty restaurant and bar, also overlooking the sea. In addition there is also a lobby bar and a pool bar.
Plenty of fun in the sun awaits guests on the private beach or free-form outdoor swimming pool. A Kids Club and several outdoor water activities ensure something to keep the whole family occupied throughout their stay. Other facilities include a spa and fitness, a Business Center, high speed Internet access, a 288 sqm-meeting room able to accommodate up to 200 persons for medium-sized meetings, and tour and transportation services for guests.
Koh Chang is expected to become an even more popular destination due to the development of Trat Airport, government initiatives to promote Koh Chang as a major tourist destination, existing ferry from island-to-island taking just 20 minutes each way, and increasing flight frequencies from a local carrier.
Among the major tourist attractions are Koh Chang National Marine Park, occupying 80% of the island, teeming with fascinating wildlife and marine life, not to mention diving and numerous water sports options.
