Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has continued its global expansion by soft opening two new resorts under its upscale dusitD2 brand – dusitD2 Yarkay Thimphu, Bhutan and dusitD2 Ao Nang, Krabi (Thailand).
Opened on 15 December 2018, dusitD2 Ao Nang, Krabi puts guests within walking distance of the beach and other major attractions in this popular beach town, in Southern Thailand.
Opened on 19 December 2018, meanwhile, dusitD2 Yarkay Thimphu, Bhutan serves as the first and largest internationally-branded hotel in the enchanting kingdom. Drawing inspiration from the Four Harmonious Friends, a beloved national folktale about four animals working together to harvest fruit from a magical tree, each guest floor of the hotel is dedicated to a different animal from the tale. Colourful and contemporary motifs of the creatures adorn the walls of each of the 83 well-appointed guest rooms and suites.
Alongside a beautiful lobby showcasing local artworks, current hotel offerings include a Thai spa, a fully equipped gym and an international all-day-dining restaurant. A vibrant bar and the first authentic Thai restaurant in Bhutan will follow soon.
Popular attractions such as Buddha Point (Kuensel-Phodrang), the iconic Tashichho Dzong, the Royal Botanical Park, and Clock Tower Square are all easily accessible from the hotel’s prime inner-city location in the kingdom’s capital, Thimphu.
“Designed to reflect and anticipate the needs and desires of today’s hyper-connected travellers, our dusitD2 resorts feature a unique combination of comfort, convenience and style, creating vibrant places for guests to socialise and interact,” said Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International. “We are delighted to welcome dusitD2 Yarkay Thimphu, Bhutan and dusitD2 Ao Nang, Krabi to our fast-growing portfolio of global hotels, and we look forward to delighting guests with our unique brand of gracious hospitality.”
