Thailand-based Dusit International is set to strengthen its brand presence across India with a plan to open at least two Dusit-branded hotels per year from 2021 onwards in tier I and tier II cities. Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru are a few cities, being targeted for the expansion.

India is one of the top seven source markets for Dusit Hotels and Resorts worldwide.

One of Dusit’s upcoming properties in India is Dusit Princess Serviced Suites Kolkata, slated to open in Q2 2022. The hospitality brand has partnered with Jain Group, a real estate, hospitality and finance organisation based in Kolkata, for this project.

Dusit Princess Serviced Suites Kolkata will occupy a prime location near the green expanse of Eco Park, only five minutes by road from both the city centre and the airport, and just one minute from Kalakshetra metro station.

It is a part of Jain Group’s high-end residential development project, Dream One.

Comprising 42 three-bedroom units, the new property will feature a swimming pool, all-day dining outlet, a speciality restaurant, and a fitness centre. Banqueting and meeting facilities will also be available for intimate and midscale events.

In addition, Dusit is expected to conclude at least four more signings within the next 12 months.

Suphajee Suthumpun, Group chief executive officer, Dusit International said:

“While Covid-19 has brought immense challenges for tourism and hospitality worldwide, we remain confident that our resilient industry can and will bounce back, and we expect India to be a key player in international and domestic tourism in the brighter days ahead.

“We are delighted and honoured that the Jain Group has selected our Dusit Princess brand for their property in Kolkata, and we now look forward to bringing more quality products to the market to generate long-term value for all our stakeholders.”

Adding to this, Shrayans Jain, vice president, Jain Group said:

“Dusit has more than seven decades of experience delivering exceptional guest and customer experiences in key destinations worldwide, and the company already has a strong reputation in India for the quality of its offerings.

“Our companies’ shared values to deliver quality in all aspects will ensure Dusit Princess Serviced Suites Kolkata is perfectly placed to exceed guest and customer expectations, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship with Dusit.”
