Dusit International begins reopening hotels in Thailand – all SHA certified and offering exceptional value on direct bookings
Hospitality company’s enhanced safety measures, new guest experiences, and ‘Journey Together’ package aim to stimulate and leverage demand following government plans to boost domestic travel.
Bangkok – 24 June 2020: Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has returned on the scene after the recent nationwide lockdown by opening four hotels and resorts in key domestic destinations – each offering the highest standards of health and safety in accordance with Amazing Thailand Safety & Health Administration (SHA) certification – and providing exclusive savings on direct bookings through the end of October.
Seeking to tap into demand generated by the government’s THB 22.4 billion domestic tourism stimulus package, which aims to spur two million domestic trips during 1 July – 31 October 2020, Dusit has opened three of its owned hotels including Dusit Thani Hua Hin, Dusit Thani Pattaya, and Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri, Bangkok.
Properties managed by Dusit will begin opening from early July onwards, including dusitD2 Khao Yai; dusitD2 Ao Nang, Krabi; Dusit Thani Krabi Beach Resort; and Pathumwan Princess, MBK Centre, Bangkok.
Other owned Dusit Hotels & Resorts in Thailand, which cater primarily to international visitors and business travellers, are slated to reopen when travel restrictions are further eased and ‘travel bubbles’ are introduced. This includes Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket, dusitD2 Chiang Mai, Dusit Princess Chiang Mai, and Dusit Princess Srinakarin, Bangkok.
Baan Dusit Thani, Dusit’s first standalone restaurant concept in Bangkok, has been fully operational since early May.
“We are delighted that the government has introduced measures to stimulate domestic tourism, boost the economy, and support everyone in our industry by funding subsidies for flights, accommodation and destination dining,” said Ms Suphajee Suthumpun, Group CEO, Dusit International. “We will do our utmost to support these efforts by ensuring we offer the comfortable, convenient, and most importantly, safe stay and dining experiences that guests have come to know and expect from our various brands.
“Alongside our own Dusit Care – Stay with Confidence programme, which includes a new range of facilities, services and operating procedures designed to go beyond enhanced health and safety practices to deliver extra convenience, experience and value, we have complied with all regulations related to the Amazing Thailand Safety & Health Administration (SHA) certification process. Guests and customers can stay with peace of mind knowing that their health and well-being will always come first at our properties.”
Arranged by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, and other partners, SHA certification is only awarded to hotels and resorts demonstrating the highest standards of sanitation, hygiene and safety. All of Dusit’s properties in Thailand have been SHA certified.
Alongside implementing new services to inspire traveller confidence, Dusit hopes to further stimulate travel demand in its various destinations by offering exceptional value for money on direct bookings.
With booking and stay dates available from now until 30 October 2020, Dusit’s Journey Together package starts from only THB 4,000 per night at participating properties and includes accommodation, three meals per day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), and more exclusive benefits. Guests can also enjoy the finest local cuisine without leaving the distinctive comfort of Dusit’s properties, as they can replace one meal with a complimentary delivery from one of Dusit’s esteemed local partners.
