Dusit International opens its first hotel in Vietnam
Dusit International, one of Thailand’s foremost hotel and property development companies, has officially made its Vietnam debut with the opening of Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort on the country’s largest island, Phu Quoc.
Operating under Dusit’s upper midscale Dusit Princess brand, the new resort marked its soft opening on 22 May with a special ceremony attended by the property’s owners, Mr Do Van Chanh, Director of Linh Chi Limited Company, and Ms Thu Nguyen, General Director of Linh Chi Limited Company; local government representatives Mr Ngo Hoai Chung, Vice Chairman, Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, and Mr Ngo Trieu Cam, Chairman of Duong To people’s committee; and a team of executives from Dusit International, led by Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer.
Comprising 108 well-appointed contemporary guest rooms, most of which offer pristine ocean views, Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort is centrally located on the island’s west coast overlooking the stunning Bai Truong beach, a 20-plus kilometre stretch of sand also known as Long Beach.
The resort’s dining options include an all-day-dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, a swim-up pool bar serving Thai, Vietnamese and Western cuisines; and Soi 14, a stylish beachfront bar and lounge serving Thai street food favorites with a contemporary spin.
The centerpiece of the resort is a large infinity pool with ocean view, set within a lush tropical garden. Other facilities include a fully equipped gym, a kids’ club, a large ballroom accommodating up to 190 people, and Luna Thai Spa (opening in July 2018).
Dusit International was founded in 1948 by Honorary Chairperson Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui, whose ﬁrst hotel was the Princess on Bangkok’s Charoenkrung Road. Dusit International currently operates 27 properties worldwide and has over 50 confirmed projects in the pipeline in key destinations such as Bhutan, China, Indonesia, Kenya, Myanmar, Oman, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, and UAE.
