Our core full-service hotel brands span the upper midscale through to luxury segments and include Dusit Thani (upper upscale), dusitD2 (upscale), Dusit Princess (upper midscale), and Dusit Devarana (luxury).
To address the ever-changing tastes of consumers in this age of digital disruption, we continue to expand our operations across the lodging spectrum to offer a broader range of experiences for our guests and customers.
In 2018, we officially entered the luxury vacation rental sector with the full acquisition of Elite Havens, the leading provider of high-end vacation rentals in Asia, which brought a network of more than 200 fully staffed properties across Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Japan, and the Maldives, into our portfolio.
We also entered the lean luxury, affordable lifestyle market with the launch of ASAI Hotels, a distinctive new brand designed to link curious, millennial-minded travellers with authentic local experiences in vibrant cities and resort destinations worldwide.
Dusit international’s property portfolio currently comprises more than 270 properties operating under six brands across 14 countries.
The company has more than 60 Dusit-branded properties in the pipeline and expects to open at least 10-12 hotels per year in key destinations from 2020 onwards.

Slated to open in Q2 2022, Dusit Princess Serviced Suites Kolkata is set to pave the way for Dusit’s quality-focused expansion in Tier I and Tier II cities as well as key leisure destinations throughout India.
Bangkok, Thailand, 26 August 2020 – Thailand-based Dusit International, one of Asia’s fastest-growing hospitality companies, has announced its expansion into India with a plan to open at least two Dusit-branded hotels per year from 2021 onwards in Tier I and Tier II cities – such as Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore – as well as key leisure destinations throughout the country.
Alongside the signing of Dusit Princess Serviced Suites Kolkata, under a franchise agreement with the Jain Group, a leading Real Estate, Hospitality and Finance organisation based in Kolkata, Dusit is already in talks with other potential owners and is on course to conclude at least four more signings within the next 12 months.
Following a strategy to focus on quality hotel products that help owners maximise the value of their assets, Dusit’s planned expansion includes exquisite palace conversions where the company aims to uniquely combine its distinctive brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality with local customs and traditions to create luxury hotel experiences that deliver sustainable value for the wider community.
Dusit is already well-known in India for its rich hospitality heritage, and India is one of the top seven source markets for Dusit Hotels and Resorts worldwide.
As an Asian brand with more than 70 years of experience managing hotels and resorts throughout the region, and with a comprehensive guest loyalty programme that enriches every visit, Dusit’s service offering is well suited to the needs of discerning Indian travellers.
India and Thailand share many similarities in terms of culture and traditions, and Dusit believes this not only makes its brands a popular choice for Indian guests and customers, but also an attractive proposition for Indian hotel owners seeking to work with a company that truly understands their needs while linking them with a large pool of engaged customers.
With India’s fast-growing middle class expected to reach 583 million people – or 41% of India’s projected population – by 2025, Dusit also sees huge potential for its upscale and midscale brands in this burgeoning market.
“While COVID-19 has brought immense challenges for tourism and hospitality worldwide, we remain confident that our resilient industry can and will bounce back, and we expect India to be a key player in international and domestic tourism in the brighter days ahead,” said Ms Suphajee Suthumpun, Group CEO, Dusit International. “We are delighted and honoured that the Jain Group has selected our Dusit Princess brand for their property in Kolkata, and we now look forward to bringing more quality products to the market to generate long-term value for all our stakeholders.”
Slated to open in Q2 2022 as part of Jain Group’s high-end residential development project, Dream One, Dusit Princess Serviced Suites Kolkata will occupy a prime location near the green expanse of Eco Park, only five minutes by car from both the city centre and the airport, and just one minute from Kalakshetra Metro Station.
Comprising 42 three-bedroom units, the new property will provide an ideal base for both business and leisure travellers seeking extended stays. A swimming pool, an all-day dining restaurant, a speciality restaurant, and a fitness and wellness centre will be among the recreational facilities. Banqueting and meeting facilities will also be available for small and midscale events.
Mr Shrayans Jain, Vice President, Jain Group, said, “In the new normal following COVID-19, Indian travellers will be increasingly seeking brands they can trust to deliver the high levels of safety, comfort and convenience they deserve. Dusit has more than seven decades of experience delivering exceptional guest and customer experiences in key destinations worldwide, and the company already has a strong reputation in India for the quality of its offerings. Our companies’ shared values to deliver quality in all aspects will ensure Dusit Princess Serviced Suites Kolkata is perfectly placed to exceed guest and customer expectations, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship with Dusit.”
Dusit International’s property portfolio now comprises more than 300 properties operating under six brands across 13 countries. The company also has a strong background in hospitality education, operating internationally-accredited hospitality colleges in Thailand and the Philippines, as well as Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Culinary School in Bangkok, Thailand, in partnership with the renowned Paris-based institute.
Wellness is another area in which Dusit has rich experience. The company’s award-winning Devarana Spa concept delivers a wide range of holistic therapies, adding even greater value to Dusit’s luxury and upper-upscale stay experiences.
The company is represented in India by Ms Deepika Arora, who is part of the core team responsible for Dusit’s market growth and expansion in South Asia and Africa. She is based at Dusit’s offices in Delhi.
Lean and sustainable hotel concept targets millennial-minded
travellers seeking authentic local experiences. The first hotel under the
brand – ASAI Bangkok Chinatown – will open on 15 September 2020.
Bangkok, Thailand, 2 September 2020 – Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, will begin rolling out its new ASAI Hotels brand this September with the opening of ASAI Bangkok Chinatown in the heart of the city’s renowned Chinatown district, followed by six more properties all operating under a thoughtfully lean hotel concept Dusit believes will be key to sustainable and profitable growth in the new normal.
Designed to link millennial-minded travellers with authentic local experiences in the world’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, ASAI Hotels is Dusit’s sixth hotel brand and represents the company’s expansion into the affordable lifestyle segment of the lodging spectrum. Its other brands – namely Dusit Thani, dusitD2, Dusit Princess, Dusit Devarana, and Elite Havens – cover upper-midscale through to luxury.
Drawing on Dusit’s unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality, ASAI Hotels is positioned to offer lean-luxury by providing thoughtfully pared-back services while focusing on in-stay essentials. Large communal spaces featuring sustainable and locally inspired lifestyle and dining experiences will be central to its offerings.
Starting this September, the brand will initially serve domestic travellers seeking authentic experiences in Bangkok’s historic Chinatown district and culturally rich Old Town. Another ASAI hotel will open within 12 months in Bangkok’s stylish Sathorn district, followed by three ASAI Hotels in Cebu, the Philippines; one ASAI hotel in the old Yankin area of Yangon, Myanmar; and one ASAI hotel in Kyoto, Japan.
Dusit International believes the ASAI Hotels concept is well-positioned to meet the challenges of a post-COVID-19 world and deliver long-term value for hotel owners, investors and other key stakeholders.
“With its highly agile management structure, streamlined designs, and limited personnel, the ASAI Hotels business model is compact, sustainable and efficient, and ultimately serves as a cost-effective, fitting solution for continuing to grow our business and expand our presence in the new normal,” said Ms Suphajee Suthumpun, Group CEO, Dusit International. “By expanding our offerings across the lodging spectrum, we are not only tapping into the fast-growing market of millennial-minded customers who desire local experiences, but we are also offering new stay experiences to our existing customers too.
Collaborations with local restaurateurs and artisans, and sustainable sourcing of produce, are just some of the elements we have in place to capture the attention of the market as a whole, and we believe this integrated community approach will be vital to success in our industry following the deep social and economic impact of COVID-19.”
Opening on 15 September, ASAI Bangkok Chinatown features 224 thoughtfully compact rooms (ranging from 18 – 26 sq m). Each room’s contemporary and clean design emphasises in-stay essentials, such as superior quality beds, high-pressure rain showers, luggage space, and a work desk with USB charging station. A large communal area, meanwhile, includes large and comfortable work areas, a small gym, a bar highlighting craft beers and creative cocktails, a large courtyard with organic herb garden, and Jam Jam restaurant serving a creative twist on local and international favourites.
Located adjacent to Yaowarat Road, only 100 metres from Wat Mangkon MRT underground station, the hotel also puts guests in the heart of a vibrant neighbourhood renowned for its lively fresh markets, historic temples, traditional shophouses, hidden coffee shops and a vast array of streetside eateries. The Rattanakosin Island area, home to the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, is only two stations away on the MRT. The city’s major commercial districts can also be easily reached via the underground network.
“Easily accessible and equipped to cater to the needs of all kinds of travellers, from solo and groups to business and leisure, ASAI Bangkok Chinatown is a great option for lodging in Bangkok’s fascinating Old Town,” said Mr Siradej Donavanik, Managing Director, ASAI Holdings Company Limited, which operates ASAI Hotels. “We have all the elements in place to appeal to the tastes of modern travellers who appreciate sustainability and who want to experience the true essence of a destination. From our minimalist, locally inspired design with considerate technological touches, to our unique locally-inspired lifestyle and dining experiences, our hotel is set to become a hub of the community, offering highly comfortable, affordable stays for our curious and dynamic guests, and serving as an attractive and happening venue in which to work, rest, eat and play for Bangkokians at large.”
Mr Donavanik is confident that there are many people throughout Thailand who would like to come and experience Bangkok’s Old Town while discovering a new spin on Dusit’s renowned high standards of service and hospitality.
“As the only international hotel chain in the area, we have a strong advantage, and we look forward to leveraging it to bring value to all of our stakeholders – guests, customers, employees, and owners alike.”
In line with ASAI Hotel’s overall concept, Live Local, each hotel in the ASAI portfolio will be geared to reflect its local character in terms of design, style and restaurant offering. This approach will be further evident when ASAI Hotels opens its second hotel, in Bangkok’s Sathorn district, which will fully embrace the modernity of its inner-city setting to offer a complementary-yet-distinctive stay experience that differentiates it from the Chinatown property.
