"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 Ms 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.
"Like Dusit Events, Dusit on Demand, and Baan Dusit Thani, Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri, Bangkok will feature many familiar faces from Dusit Thani Bangkok who will be on hand to delight guests with the genuine care, warmth and respect for which our employees are renowned," said Ms Titiya Xuto, Vice President Operations Thailand and Pre-opening Services, Dusit International. "With this in mind, the hotel is perfectly positioned to become a new home for fans of Dusit Thani Bangkok while the hotel is being redeveloped, including those who are missing their daily fix of premium pastries and coffee at Dusit Gourmet."
