dusitD2 Phuket Aria to open on upscale Surin Beach in Thailand in 2020

Dusit International will add another property in Thailand to its portfolio, after the hotel group signed a management agreement with Phuket-based property developer, Layana Development. The dusitD2 Phuket Aria hotel will be located on Surin Beach on the west coast of Phuket.

Positioned on lush land, a short stroll from the upscale Surin Beach, which is known as “Millionaire’s Row” due to its high end hotels and resorts, the new hotel will have 199 guest rooms. Accommodation is made up of rooms, family suites, studios, and one and two-bedroom units, and they will be built around a leafy courtyard. For longer-stay guests, there are four one-bedroom lofts that come with a corner kitchenette that is equipped with a microwave and stove for convenient cooking.

The eight-storey hotel is scheduled to open in 2020, and it will feature dusitD2’s signature sleek design with natural tones and vibrant artwork. Facilities at the beachfront hotel include a rooftop infinity pool and sun terrace with views of the Andaman Sea, an adjoining all-day-dining restaurant with international and Thai culinary delights, and a stylish bar. The property is being designed by Original Vision, a Hong Kong and Thailand-based architecture company.

Suphajee Suthumpun, the Chief Executive Officer of Dusit International Group, commented:

“Surin Beach is a wonderful destination and the hip, young, design-conscious crowd it attracts is the ideal market for our distinctively modern brand.”

She also explained:

“We look forward to working with Layana Development to create an experience that not only delights in terms of contemporary design and gracious service, but which also meets the needs of today’s hyper-connected travellers.”

Guests will be able to enjoy close proximity to Surin Beach’s diverse restaurants and lively bars. Surin Beach is situated between Bang Tao and Kamala Beaches, and is only a 30-minute drive from Phuket International Airport (HKT).

This will be the third dusitD2-branded hotel to open in Thailand, following the launch of dusitD2 Chiang Mai and dusitD2 Khao Yai earlier this year. The brand has existing properties in Kenya, China, and the United States, and there are plans in place to open dusitD2 hotels in the United Arab Emirates next.

Dusit International was founded in Thailand in 1949, and the hospitality group operates hotels and resorts across Thailand, India, China, Egypt, Kenya, the Maldives, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, the Philippines, and the United States. It has four brands: Dusit Thani, dusitD2, Dusit Princess and Dusit Devarana.
