Dusit International signed a management consultancy agreement with Sanguantas Development Company Ltd to operate dusitD2 Chaengwattana, an upscale business hotel in the north of Bangkok near Don Mueang Airport (DMK) and a range of key business, leisure and MICE destinations. The property is due to open in 2020.
Designed to meet the needs of today’s tech-savvy, hyper-connected travellers, the hotel will comprise 227 guest rooms and suites set over 23 floors, and will feature amongst its facilities a rooftop international restaurant and bar, a rooftop infinity swimming pool, fitness centre, and a large banqueting facility offering panoramic views of Thailand’s capital city.
Strategically located on Chaengwattana Road, with easy access to the expressway, the property will boast a striking design featuring tiered gardens. The proposed interior will provide contemporary comfort and convenience enhanced by the latest technology, and all the amenities will carry Dusit’s signature gracious service.
CentralPlaza Chaengwattana, a hub of dining, shopping and entertainment, is only 300 metres away, while other local landmarks include ISB International School, World Medical Center Hospital, and the Government Complex, which houses the Immigration Department and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. DMK is only 30 minutes away by car, and Impact Arena, Exhibition and Convention Center (IMPACT) can be reached within 15 minutes.
The Pink Line Mass Transit Monorail System is slated to open in the same year as the hotel with a station located nearby. This will link with the city’s BTS Skytrain system to offer convenient access to all of Bangkok’s key attractions.
“With completion of the new infrastructure set to coincide with the opening of the hotel, the timing for the project could not be better,” said Dusit International’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Ms Suphajee Suthumpun. “From colourful, inspiring décor, to gracious service inspired by authentic Thai values, the new hotel will provide a comfortable, stylish and convenient option for leisure and business travellers alike, and should prove especially attractive for exhibitors at the nearby convention centre”.
“The hotel will also be an ideal venue for meetings in its own right, with state-of- the– art facilities allowing us to cater for a wide range of events. We also hope to leverage our close proximity to the Government Complex by hosting many high level functions at the hotel.”
Apichart Asavarojpanich, Chief Executive Officer of Sanguantas Development, declared “Dusit International’s rich hospitality experience speaks for itself and we are delighted to partner with the company for this special project, which really raises the bar for business hotels in the area. Any development we become involved in must have the best in design, facilities, and services, including a comprehensive training programme for its employees, and Dusit offers all this and more. We are confident the hotel will be a resounding success under Dusit’s management.”
Dusit International currently operates 29 properties in key destinations around the globe. A further 51 projects are already confirmed to open internationally within the next three years.
