Dusit International, one of Thailand’s foremost hotel and property development companies, will make its Vietnam debut this month with the opening of Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort on the country’s largest island, Phu Quoc.
Operating under Dusit’s upper midscale Dusit Princess brand, the new four-star resort is centrally located on the island’s west coast overlooking the stunning Bai Truong beach, a 20-plus kilometre stretch of sand also known as Long Beach. Phu Quoc (PQC) International Airport and Duong To town centre are only a short drive away.
The resort comprises 108 well-appointed contemporary guest rooms (ranging from 32 sq m Deluxe Rooms to 90 sq m Suites), most of which offer pristine ocean views with all-day-dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, a swim-up pool bar serving Thai, Vietnamese and Western cuisines; and Soi 14, a stylish beachfront bar and lounge.
“Perfectly equipped to meet the needs of business and leisure travellers alike, this is a stunning property in a beautiful location with gorgeous sunsets almost every day,” said Markus Lohenstein, General Manager, Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort. “It’s a real honour to be tasked with debuting Dusit’s unique brand of gracious hospitality in Vietnam. I look forward to working with my team to make this resort a huge success, as we delight our guests with our distinctive service, and showcase the best the island has to offer.”
The Ministry of Tourism aims to attract at least 500,000 foreign tourists to Phu Quoc Island this year through strategic promotions and the development of attractive tourism products.
To meet international demand, PQC International Airport has opened new direct routes to destinations such as Thailand, China, Korea, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Germany and the UK. Regular domestic flights to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are also available. A visa exempt rule grants international visitors 30 days access to the island upon arrival.
With 27 properties currently in operation across four brands in eight countries, Dusit International is in a significant growth phase which will see the number of Dusit properties top 70 within the next three years across key markets worldwide.
