Dusit International’s newly refurbished all-suite hotel offers an elegant, peaceful retreat in the city’s commercial heart – with design and services inspired by the company’s renowned flagship property. Thanks to the property, Dusit International will still be able to welcome its guests as its flagship property, the Dusit Thani Bangkok, will not reopen before 2023, following its complete reconstruction.
Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri, Bangkok, a deluxe all-suite hotel managed and operated by Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has just completed an extensive refurbishment to offer an elegant new look inspired by the timeless charm of Dusit’s legendary flagship hotel, Dusit Thani Bangkok, which, after almost 50 years of operations, is currently undergoing redevelopment nearby.
Soft opened in May this year, Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri, Bangkok, comprises 97 expansive one- and two-bedroom suites on a peaceful, leafy avenue opposite the green expanse of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club, only 100 metres from Ratchadamri BTS station. Luxury malls, stylish restaurants and sophisticated nightlife are all within walking distance.
Refurbishment of the property began in September with the aim to continue the distinctive hospitality heritage of Dusit Thani Bangkok and provide a new home for fans of the hotel while it is being redeveloped as part of Dusit’s landmark mixed-use development, Dusit Central Park.
Many ornaments and artworks of sentimental and historical value from the flagship hotel have been used to decorate the spacious suites and lobby. The inviting and luxurious spaces have also been painted to reflect the elegant and soft colour palette of Dusit Thani Bangkok, resulting in a feeling of sophistication and exclusivity that pervades the entire property.
Signature dining outlet, Dusit Gourmet, which serves a wide range of homemade pastries, cakes and sandwiches, plus a selection of healthy and hearty meals, has also been given a contemporary makeover as part of the refurb. The bright and cosy venue now serves as a convenient and attractive hangout for hotel guests and residents, and nearby office and embassy workers alike.
A new dining experience has also been introduced at the decking overlooking the free-form swimming pool (with separate children’s pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and a well-equipped gym), where guests can now enjoy private al fresco dining in an elegantly decorated gazebo. The relaxed setting is perfect for a romantic dinner for two, or a special get-together for up to four persons. A choice of Thai and international five-course set menus are available.
“We are delighted to unveil the results of the refurbishment and serve as a new home for fans of Dusit Thani Bangkok who are missing the property during its redevelopment,” said Ms Titiya Xuto, Vice President Operations Thailand and Pre-opening Services, Dusit International, and General Manager of Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri, Bangkok. “Our property’s beautiful design and services, including Thai-inspired gracious hospitality delivered by many familiar faces from Dusit Thani Bangkok, coupled with our excellent location amidst one of the city’s most vibrant districts for business and leisure, means we are perfectly positioned to win many new fans too. “We now look forward to providing memorable stay and dining experiences for everyone who visits.”
The new Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel is slated to open as part of Dusit Central Park in 2023.
