Dusit International has signed an agreement with RCL Realty & Consulting Services, Inc and Brightbeam Corporation to develop the DusitD2 Resort, San Juan in La Union Province, Philippines. The first international brand resort located at the Waves Beach Club and Residences, the new DusitD2 Resort is scheduled to open in 2019.

The property will be a seven-hectare luxury residential resort complex located an hour’s drive from Baguio City and three hours from Metro Manila and Clark International Airport. A total of 115 rooms and 50 villas will be available, with facilities including a clubhouse with an all-day dining restaurant, an oversized swimming pool and a fitness studio. Meanwhile, the Waves Beach Club and Residences, itself set to open in the first quarter of 2019, is being designed as a Malibu-inspired resort offering lifestyle, commercial and residential options.

Speaking about the collaborative project, Lim Boon Kwee, COO of Dusit International, said: “Both companies are known for delivering high-quality developments and we are confident they will realise our plans for a resort that offers the distinctive combination of comfort, convenience, technology and warm, gracious service that the DusitD2 brand is world renowned for.”

Dusit International currently has DusitD2 resorts in Thailand, the US, China and Kenya, and is currently in the process of unveiling 12 additional hotels in China, the Philippines, Oman, Bhutan, the UAE, Myanmar and Qatar.

“We are very happy to seal this partnership with a solid brand that’s been synonymous with world-class hospitality for over 65 years,” said Fausto Liriano, chairman and CEO of RCL. “Combining competitive pricing and the best quality for the development, Waves is a unique destination that’s perfect for young families and professionals alike, and DusitD2 Resort, San Juan only strengthens the project’s appeal.”
