Dusit Hotel Group Adding Phuket And Samui Properties
As reported in The Nation Newspaper a representative of leading Thailand chain Dusit Thani has said the group is in expansion mode in Phuket and Koh Samui.
According to the story a core Dusit branded hotel on a conversion basis in Samui will be announced soon. While in Phuket a second property is under negotiation, though logically given its recent acquisition of the Dusit Laguna Phuket industry sources say the new one could be a sub-brand such as the recently realigned DusitD2, Dusit Residence or Dusit Princess.
Currently on the company website, in the current pipeline is Eighth Heaven Phang Nga – A Dusit Devarana Resort – Opening 2011. At last check this project appeared to have been put on hold.
For a number of years the group had a presence in Koh Samui at the Santiburi Resort, though this ultimately became an independently operated property.
Samui looks to see a series of new chain brandings as its understood Moevenpick will be announcing a signing on the island shortly. No details have been released yet on the property.
