Dusit International recently formalised a long-term agreement with Vietnam’s General Technology Joint Stock Company to develop and operate Dusit Tu Hoa Palace, Hanoi.
Located in Hanoi’s upscale Tay Ho District, the lakeside hotel will be home to 207 well-appointed rooms. The property, which will feature a distinctive blend of Thai and Vietnamese design elements, will house an all-day dining restaurant, a rooftop bar, meeting rooms and a swimming pool.
Dusit Tu Hoa Palace, Hanoi will be within arm’s reach of the area’s international restaurants, cafes, nightlife venues and stunning lakeside temples, while Noi Bai International Airport is a mere 30-minute drive away. Adding to this, Hanoi’s Old Quarter, the city’s business hub and main tourist destination, can be reached in just 15 minutes.
Those yearning to absorb Vietnamese culture will be delighted with the hotel’s proximity to local attractions, such as Vietnam’s oldest temple, Tran Quoc Pagoda, which was built in the 6th century, and Quan Thanh Temple, renowned for its detailed wood carvings.
Chief operating officer, Dusit International, Lim Boon Kwee remarked on the development: “We are delighted to partner with General Technology Joint Stock Company to bring our unique brand of Thai inspired, gracious hospitality to Vietnam’s vibrant capital for the first time.
“As a destination, Hanoi keeps going from strength to strength. Last year the city welcomed more than six million foreign visitors in the first 11 months – up 12 per cent year-on-year. The country’s strong GDP growth rate is also driving a rapidly growing segment of high-spending domestic tourists. With this in mind, now is the perfect time to expand our operations in Vietnam’s capital city and strengthen our brand for further growth in Vietnam.”
Also commenting was chairman of the board of management, General Technology Joint Stock Company, Le Minh Thanh: “Dusit’s ability to translate its Thai heritage and industry expertise into impressive localised experiences is fully evident at its international properties, including its first hotel in Vietnam, Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort Phu Quoc, which opened in 2018. We now look forward to working with Dusit to offer a distinctive hotel experience in Hanoi that delights guests and customers, and which delivers long-term, sustainable value for all stakeholders.”
