Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has signed a hotel management agreement with Vietnam-based property developer Hoi An Royal Group to operate Dusit Thani Hoi An, the first Dusit Thani branded hotel in Vietnam.
Located in a prime beachfront setting in Dien Ban Town near the ancient trading port of Hoi An – one of the most popular tourist destinations on Vietnam’s South Central Coast – the resort is set to open in 2021 comprising 180 well-appointed guest rooms and 69 luxury villas, making it one of the largest internationally branded resorts in the area.
Da Nang International Airport is only 30 minutes away by car, while Hoi An’s Riverside and Old Town center can be reached in under 10 minutes.
Located on the banks of Thu Bon River amidst a network of canals, Hoi An is a UNESCO World Heritage Site famed for its rich cultural and architectural heritage. The Riverside and Old Town areas feature many charming ancient temples and shrines, beautiful wooden houses representing various eras and styles, and numerous stylish bars, bistros, and local shops for visitors to explore.
“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 travelers seeking to explore the ancient town of Hoi An,” said Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International. “We are delighted and honored 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 as a splendid showcase of everything the Dusit Thani brand has to offer.”
Mr Nguyen Phu Quy, Chairman, Hoi An Royal Group, 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% 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.
