Swissôtel will expand its Thai hotel portfolio this summer when it takes over the management of a Dusit property in Phuket.
In June 2016, the existing dusitD2 Phuket Resort, which is located in the main Patong area of the island, will be rebranded as the Swissôtel Phuket Patong Beach Resort. This will become the company’s second property in Phuket, following the Swissôtel Phuket Kamala Beach Resort.
Both hotels are owned by Destination Properties.
“This is a wonderful new addition for the Swissôtel portfolio and we are very excited to be expanding our presence in Phuket,” said Lilian Roten, vice president of the Swissôtel brand. “Through its contemporary design and stimulating surroundings, the hotel will serve as an ideal base for guests to explore the Patong area and delight in experiences that are truly authentic to Phuket.”
The hotel features 390 rooms, four restaurants and bars, a swimming pool, health club, kids’ club and three meeting rooms. A new rooftop ballroom is also under construction, which will be able to host events for up to 250 people.
“We are delighted to deepen our relationship with Swissôtel,” said Gary Murray, CEO of Destination Resorts. “The popularity of Phuket as an exciting destination continues to grow and our Phuket properties are ideally located for visitors to the region. Swissôtel gives us the superb, professional, efficient management style that creates a consistently excellent experience for our guests.”
As well as the two Phuket properties, Swissôtel operates the Swissôtel Nai Lert Park and Swissôtel Le Concorde in Bangkok.
