Thailand’s Dusit International has signed a hotel management agreement with International Builders Corporation (IBC), a leading construction company in the Philippines, to operate Dusit Princess Boracay hotel on the west coast of the famed paradise island, Boracay.
Slated to open in early 2021 in the Station 1 area of the island’s beautiful White Beach, the new beachfront hotel will house 120 guest rooms, along with a large swimming pool overlooking the beach, a fully equipped gym and function rooms for social and business events. An all-day dining restaurant and local speciality restaurant will also form part of the offerings.
Dusit Princess Boracay’s prime location ensures guests will enjoy easy access to everything the paradise island has to offer. From the atmospheric dining scene of West Beach and the exhilarating water sports activities of Bulabog Beach, to the scenic hiking trails of Mount Apo and the magnificent marine life found at more than 15 beautiful dive sites, the hotel is surrounded by a wide range of memorable experiences for guests of all ages to enjoy.
Located only 15 minutes by car from Cagban Jetty Port, which links by ferry to Caticlan Airport, the hotel is easily accessible. Flights to Manila take one hour, while flights to Cebu take 50 minutes.
Thrilled with the new project was CEO, Dusit International, Suphajee Suthumpun, who said: “We are delighted to continue our expansion in the Philippines by signing to manage Dusit Princess Boracay in one of the country’s best-loved tourist destinations. IBC’s focus on sustainable development perfectly aligns with our own commitment to always have a positive impact wherever we set foot. We now look forward to delivering a hotel experience that not only delights our guests and customers, but which brings enduring value to the island community too.”
Dusit International currently operates five properties in the Philippines, including Dusit Thani Manila; dusitD2 Davao; Dusit Thani Residence Davao; The Beach Club at Lubi Plantation Island, Managed by Dusit; and Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu.
The hospitality expert also has 11 properties in the pipeline in the Philippines, representing four brand models – Dusit Thani, dusitD2, Dusit Princess and ASAI Hotels. The majority of these properties are set to open within the next three years, positioning Dusit International as one of the largest international hotel operators in the Philippines.
