Thailand-based Dusit International has inked a hotel management agreement with Vietnam’s Hoi An Royal Group to operate Dusit Thani Hoi An – the first Dusit Thani-branded hotel in Vietnam.
Boasting a prime beachfront setting in Dien Ban Town, near the ancient trading port of Hoi An, the resort will feature 180 guestrooms and 69 luxury villas when it opens in 2021, making it one of the largest internationally branded resorts in the area.
In a great location, Da Nang International Airport is only 30 minutes away from the hotel by car, while Hoi An’s Riverside and Old Town centre can be reached in under 10 minutes.
Designed to meet the needs of leisure and MICE travellers alike, resort facilities will include a large outdoor swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, several state-of-the-art function rooms, a bar and lobby lounge, and a high-end spa providing luxurious massage and wellness treatments. Wellness will also play a key role at the resort’s all-day dining restaurant, with its menu offering healthy Asian and international dishes made using only the finest ingredients.
Chief operating officer, Dusit International, Lim Boon Kwee remarked on the project: “Blending our unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality with Vietnamese culture and design, Dusit Thani Hoi An will be perfectly positioned to provide an elegant, comfortable and convenient base for all travellers seeking to explore the ancient town of Hoi An.
“We are delighted and honoured that Hoi An Royal Group has selected us to manage this beautiful property. We now look forward to establishing the resort as the preferred place to stay in Hoi An when it opens its doors in 2021,” he concluded.
Chairman, Hoi An Royal Group, Nguyen Phu Quy also said: “Hoi An’s reputation as a must-visit destination just keeps going from strength to strength. The town welcomed almost five million visitors last year – up 50 per cent on the 2.4 million who visited in 2017. To sustainably leverage this fast-growing market, we were determined to find a partner who shared our vision for excellence in all aspects; a partner who could deliver a unique, high-end resort experience that would meet the needs of discerning guests time and time again. We are delighted that Dusit, with its 70 years of proven international hospitality experience, is that partner. We look forward to a long and successful relationship together.”
Dusit Thani Hoi An will be Dusit’s second property in Vietnam, following the opening of the upper midscale Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort, Phu Quoc in May last year.
