Dusit International has settled a hotel management agreement with Dhanasansombut Development for the operation of the first property in Bangkok’s world-renowed Chatuchak Market (JJ Market).
Mixt Chatuchak, to be part of Dhanasansombut Development’s new mixed-use development, will house an estimated 250 rooms. It is situated a short distance from the MRT (Mo Chit Station) and BTS (Chatuchak Station) mass transit rail systems, which provide easy access to all of Bangkok’s main attractions. Don Mueang International Airport is located a mere 30-minute drive from the property.
Group CEO, Dusit International, Suphajee Suthumpun stated: “JJ Market is a true Bangkok icon and we are delighted to have this opportunity to become part of its vibrant fabric. With several exciting developments set to open near the market within the next few years, the area will only become even more appealing, and our new hotel will be perfectly positioned to meet the needs of the young, sophisticated travellers who visit the area seeking a distinctive localised experience.”
Majority owner and authorised director, Dhanasansombut Development, Nontaya Apitanotai also spoke of the latest venture: “Mixt Chatuchak is the only building located directly within JJ Market, making the mixed-use project and Dusit’s new hotel a unique proposition for guests who will benefit from the large array of shops and services within our building as well as on their doorstep. Our companies share a complementary vision to impress the world with Thai hospitality, and by drawing on the energy, culture and vibrancy of the iconic JJ Market, we are confident this synergy will be a huge success.”
