Thailand’s Dusit International has signed an agreement for its first hotel in the Philippine city of Cebu.
The new dusitD2 Residence Cebu City is scheduled to open in 2019, located close to the city’s IT Park and the Cebu Golf & Country Club. Forming part of a new multi-tower condominium development, Grand Residences Cebu, the hotel will feature 160 serviced residences, a restaurant, gym, swimming pool and meeting rooms.
It will join the existing Dusit Thani Manila hotel in the Philippines, planned D2 hotels in Manila and Davao, and Dusit Thani Residence Davao, which is also in the pipeline.
D2 is Dusit’s “next generation” hotel brand, combining contemporary design and connectivity.
“We believe this vibrant brand is well suited to the exciting growth of the area and that Dusit’s signature gracious hospitality will enliven the experience of both guests and residents of the dusitD2 Residence Cebu City,” said Rustom Vickers, Dusit’s vice president of development.
Dusit currently operates D2 hotels in Thailand, China, Kenya and the US, and is planning a major roll-out of the brand to countries including India, Myanmar, Bhutan, Qatar and the UAE.
