Dusit International has formalised a management agreement with Phuket-based property developer, Layana Development, for the brand new dusitD2 Phuket Aria in Surin Beach, on the west coast of Phuket.
The area, home to numerous upscale resorts and residences, is popular among travellers for its long sandy beach and crystal clear waters as well as its variety of bars and restaurants and its serene village atmosphere.
Slated for a 2020 opening, the hotel will be home to about 210 rooms and will boast a cutting-edge design. It will offer its guests high-tech connectivity and efficient, modern conveniences, ideal for the tech-savvy traveller.
dusitD2 Phuket Aria, which is currently in the initial design stages, will offer various room categories, including studios, one- and two-bedroom units and family suites. Four one-bedroom lofts will also be available.
Facilities will include a rooftop infinity pool and terrace as well as an adjoining all-day-dining restaurant serving delicious international and Thai cuisine.
Group CEO, Dusit International, Suphajee Suthumpun enthused on the project: “Surin Beach is a wonderful destination and the hip, young, design-conscious crowd it attracts is the ideal market for our distinctively modern hotel brand.
“We look forward to working with Layana Development to create a hotel experience that not only delights in terms of contemporary design and gracious service, but which also meets the needs of today’s hyper-connected travellers,” she added.
