Dusit International is showcasing its new hospitality brand at ITB Berlin 2014. Dusit Devarana Hotels and Resorts is a portfolio of high-end properties located in both leisure and business destinations. Their aim is to provide the Thai company’s signature blend of cultured refinement amid a tranquil and convenient setting.
The move aims to reinforce Dusit International’s positioning as one of Asia’s leading hospitality groups at the world’s largest annual tourism exhibition, ITB Berlin.
The first property to open under the new brand was Dusit Devarana New Delhi, which opened last autumn. The 50-room boutique resort nestled between India’s capital city and the fast-growing business hub of Gurgaon.
Situated amidst a thousand mature trees and including amenities such as round-the-clock-personal butler service, the hotel includes the first Indian outpost of London’s Michelin-starred Kai Restaurant.
The opening of the resort also signals the first foray of Dusit International into the Indian subcontinent. Upcoming properties under the Dusit Devarana brand name include Dusit Devarana Baoting Hainan, China (opening 2014); Dusit Devarana Hot Springs & Spa, Conghua, Guangzhou, China (2015) and Dusit Devarana Dianchi Lake, Kunming, China (2016).
Dusit is also continuing with the expansion of its dusitD2 brand. Catering to the needs and desires of the millennial traveller, dusitD2 Hotels and Resorts offer a distinctive combination of chic design, forward thinking technology, convenience, comfort and smart service.
dusitD2 was the first of the Dusit brand family to enter the Chinese market with the dusitD2 Fudu Binhu Hotel, Changzhou, which opened its doors in July 2013. 2014 will see Dusit entering two new markets with the exciting additions of dusitD2 Nairobi, Kenya and dusitD2 Constance, Pasadena in California, USA.
In April 2014, the brand will open a dusitD2 on Thailand’s Phuket Island. The dusitD2 Phuket Resort is close to Patong Beach, as well as the island’s entertainment and shopping district.
Sister property Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket was vote “Asia’s Leading Beach Resort” at 2013 World Travel Awards.
