The openings are part of Dusit International’s strategy to expand its portfolio of international hotels and deliver gracious, Thai-inspired hospitality to the world.
Catering to business and leisure travellers, the upscale dusitD2 Kenz Dubai is located next to Dubai Internet City Metro Station and offers easy access to major leisure and business destinations such as Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai international Airport, Dubai Marina and Dubai Mall. The property comprises 237 modern guest rooms and suites, three meeting rooms, a boardroom, a rooftop pool, spa, fitness centre, an all-day-dining restaurant specialising in Mediterranean cuisine, and a contemporary Thai restaurant.
The opening comes on the back of positive response to Dusit’s distinctive hospitality in the UAE, where Dusit International also operates the Dusit Thani Dubai, Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, and Dusit Residence Dubai Marina.
Another key market in Dusit International’s expansion plans is China. To date, the company operates four properties in the country and has 20 projects in the pipeline which are slated to open in the next three-to-five years.
DusitPrincess Resort Panzhihua, Sichuan is the first internationally branded resort in Panzhihua city and is conveniently situated within the city’s eco-tourism zone, Puda Sunshine International Retreat, which comprises sports venues, a theme park and wellness facilities. Located only 30 minutes by car from the central business district and Panzhihua’s Bao’anying Airport, Dusit’s 206-room upper midscale resort includes 169 well-appointed villas with beautiful outdoor garden, an all-day dining restaurant serving nutritious Chinese cuisine, and an on-site medical centre providing a comprehensive range of wellness programmes and therapeutic Traditional Chinese Medicine consultation.
Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer of Dusit International, said, “China and the UAE are both key markets for us and we are delighted to bolster our presence in each location. The opening of the dusitD2 Kenz Dubai and DusitPrincess Resort Panzhihua, Sichuan greatly signals our commitment to global expansion based on market specific needs. We are confident that both new properties will now lead the way for further developments across our entire brand portfolio.”
Dusit International currently operates 29 hotels around the world and has 42 confirmed projects in the pipeline across four distinctive brands: Dusit Devarana, Dusit Thani, dusitD2, and DusitPrincess, all of which are inspired by the iconic hospitality and unique service artistry of Thailand.
