Dusit has signed a hotel management agreement with Tian Teck Property to operate the first dusitD2-branded property in the heart of Bangkok.
The dusitD2 Samyan Bangkok is slated to open in June 2023 on Si Phraya Road, a vibrant thoroughfare which runs parallel to Silom and Sathorn Roads.
Comprising 181 guest rooms set over 23 floors, hotel facilities will include a lobby bar, swimming pool with children’s pool, a fully-equipped fitness centre, an all-day dining restaurant and a meeting room.
Stations for major transportation systems, such as the BTS (Skytrain), MRT (underground), and Express Boat Service, which connect to all key areas of the city, are around a five-minute drive from the property.
Gerald Cheong, director, Tian Teck Property Company Limited, said: “This is our first project in Thailand and we are delighted to partner with a company of Dusit International’s calibre to bring our vision to life. For more than 70 years, Dusit has been synonymous with world-class, Thai-inspired gracious hospitality, and we are confident that dusitD2 Samyan Bangkok will quickly become the hotel of choice for business and leisure travellers alike when it opens its doors in 2023.”
Dusit International’s property portfolio now comprises 271 properties (nine owned and 260 managed) operating under six brands across 13 countries. The company has more than 50-Dusit branded hotels in the pipeline and expects to open at least 10-12 hotels per year in key destinations from 2019 onwards.
Dusit-branded hotels currently operating in Bangkok include Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri, Bangkok and Dusit Princess Srinakarin Bangkok. In 2023, Dusit will re-open its flagship Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel as part of Dusit Central Park, a landmark mixed-use project currently being developed opposite Bangkok’s renowned Lumpini Park.
“We are delighted that Tian Teck Property Company Limited has selected us to manage this special property and bring our upscale dusitD2 brand to the heart of Bangkok for the first time,” said Lim Boon Kwee, chief operating officer, Dusit International. “With its strong connections to major business, cultural and lifestyle hubs, Si Phraya Road is the ideal location for our deluxe dusitD2 brand. We now look forward to delivering a vibrant, modern hotel experience that delights on all fronts and seamlessly links with everything this burgeoning neighbourhood has to offer.”
