Located in the Baan Rajprasong building on a peaceful, leafy avenue opposite the green expanse of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club, only 100 metres from Ratchadamri BTS station, the rebranded property puts guests within walking distance of luxury malls, stylish restaurants and sophisticated nightlife, according to a company release on Tuesday. Bangkok’s central business district is only one station away on the Skytrain.
Comprising 97 expansive one- and two-bedroom suites, the elegant hotel is designed to provide the utmost in comfort and convenience for short- and long-stay guests alike.
“We are delighted to open the new Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri, Bangkok and bring our unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality to this prestigious neighbourhood,” said Suphajee Suthumpun, group CEO, Dusit International.
"As this property is not too far from our flagship Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel, which is currently undergoing strategic redevelopment as part of the landmark Dusit Central Park project, it is ideally positioned to meet the needs of our existing customers while delighting many new ones too, keeping our brand top of mind in suitably elegant fashion.”
Following the temporary closure of Dusit Thani Bangkok in January this year, Dusit has already made several strategic moves to maintain brand presence in the local market by introducing new business units staffed by team members from its flagship hotel.
Dusit Hospitality Services Co Ltd introduced Dusit Events, a high-end catering service for corporate, government and social events, and Dusit on Demand, an on-demand housekeeping, engineering, banqueting, and/or stewarding service for businesses based in Bangkok. Both services have already drawn interest from several major clients.
In Q3 2019, DTC will also launch Baan Dusit Thani, a high-end restaurant, bar and coffee shop set within a traditional Thai house on Soi Saladaeng, Silom Road, Bangkok. This unique venture is set to serve signature dishes from Dusit Thani Bangkok's most popular outlets.
