Dusit International opening Kathmandu hotel in 2020

11 Oct 2019
Thai hotel company Dusit International has partnered with Tibetan-based Hotel Lhasa International to develop and operate a new Dusit Princess hotel in central Kathmandu, Nepal.

Facilities at the 108-room hotel will include an outdoor swimming pool and pool bar, rooftop lounge-bar, a fitness centre, spa and meeting facilities.

Compared to Dusit’s high-end luxury hotel brands, Dusit Thani and Dusit Devarana, the Dusit Princess branch is the company’s more practical and affordable branch, offering “clean, simple and comfortable accommodations”. Set to open in the latter half of 2020, it will target business and leisure travellers.

Thai businesswoman Thanpuying Chanut Piyaou founded the company in 1948 and in 1970 opened the 510-bed Dusit Thani Bangkok, one of Bangkok’s first five-star properties.

Dusit International comprises 271 properties – nine owned and 262 managed – operating under six brands across 13 countries.

The hotel group now operates under six brands: Dusit Thani, dusitD2, Dusit Princess, Dusit Devarana, Elite Havens and ASAI Hotels.

It also recently acquired Elite Havens, Asia’s leading provider of high-end vacation rentals in Asia.

The Dusit Princess branch currently has four properties open, two in Thailand, one in Vietnam and one in Dubai, but has over 10 more hotels planned for the future.
