Big expansion for Thai hotel chain


Dusit International maps ambitious strategy
Bangkok-based hotel operator Dusit International is entering an unprecedented period of growth that will see it grow from 29 properties in eight countries to 69 in 21 countries over the coming four years.
The company will showcase the expansion at ITB Berlin this week with a delegation led by chief operating officer Lim Boon Kwee, who is keen to reveal the latest product news and development plans to the European marketplace.
“The last three years has been a time of steady growth for Dusit International as we looked to build our international presence beyond our traditional strongholds such as Thailand by entering into exciting new markets in the USA, China and Kenya,” he says.
“In order to further capitalise on these recent successes and increased awareness of our core brands Dusit Thani and dusitD2, we have dramatically ramped up our already impressive pipeline of new openings, with no less than 40 additional properties already confirmed over the next three to four years.”
The openings will see the company enter new markets in Turkey, Australia and sub-Saharan Africa while solidifying Dusit’s presence in key markets such as China, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.
Major openings in the next 12 months include dusitD2 Thimphu, Bhutan, which will become the country’s largest hotel with 83 rooms and suites, spa, gym and nightclub, Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore and Dusit Thani Brookwater Resort Golf & Spa Resort in Queensland. Further ahead, properties will open in Istanbul, Yangon and Phuket.
