It is estimated that the number of domestic tourists in 2014 will reach 3.58 billion, representing a 12% increase year-on-year and generate revenues of RMB2.85 trillion.
“Dusit Fudu is on track to have 50 hotels within the next 5 years under its belt, despite being a newcomer in a competitive marketplace,” notes Mr. Lim Boon Kwee, President of Dusit Fudu Hotels & Resorts. “We are pleased to bring four distinct hotel brands to China: Dusit Devarana, Dusit Thani, dusitD2 and Dusit Princess, as well as our signature Devarana Spa.”
Dusit Devarana is a significant niche offering, providing an intimate, high-end sanctuary experience for the discerning traveller. Dusit Thani is a deluxe upscale brand rooted in the traditional, gracious hospitality of Thai culture. The full service upscale dusitD2 brand offers a combination of chic design, technology, convenience and efficient service for the ‘next generation’ traveller, while Dusit Princess is a mid-scale brand that provides great service in key gateway locations for mainly business guests.
With over 65 years’ experience in the hotel and hospitality field, Dusit serves as a trusted symbol of Thai values. Guests experience the genuine warmth, respectfulness and commitment of the associates with each stay and in each moment, regardless where the hotel may be located.
“When developers look for a management company for their hotels, many are clear that they want an Asian brand, particularly a brand with expertise in both resorts and business hotels,” says Mr. Harris Yang, Senior Vice President of Development, Dusit Fudu Hotels and Resorts. “Dusit offers them just that, with its inimitable touch of gracious hospitality that underpins all that we do.”
