Dusit International Gets Off to Strong Start in 2018

Dusit International, one of Thailand’s hotel and property development companies, has got off to a strong start this year with success stories at the Dusit Thani Manila hotel in the Philippines and at Dusit Thani College in Thailand.

Just one month after re-opening after extensive renovations, including a new look by Manila-based designer Manny Samson, the signature Benjarong restaurant at Dusit Thani Manila was named one of the ‘14 Hot New Global Restaurants’ by CNN Travel, in third place. “The combination of Thai cuisine with renowned Filipino hospitality looks set to keep Manileños coming back for more,” wrote CNN correspondent Chris Dwyer.

Meanwhile, in Thailand, Dusit Thani College has been recognised for its international standards of hospitality education by being the first and only hospitality college in Thailand to receive WorldChefs’ Global Culinary Certification.

The college, which offers International Bachelor’s Degree programmes certified by Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) at campuses in Bangkok and Pattaya, as well as courses developed in conjunction with international partners such as Institut Paul Bocuse, was recognised by WorldChefs not only for its international standards of hospitality education and training, but also its active contribution to improving culinary standards worldwide.

“Dusit International is dedicated to excellence in all aspects of its operations, and we are delighted to be recognised for the quality of our services and our vision to uniquely deliver Thai-inspired, gracious hospitality to the world,” said Suphajee Suthumpun, Group Chief Executive, Dusit International. “As we continue to expand the scale and reach of our hotel and hospitality education operations worldwide, we look forward to having a positive impact through our mission to exceed expectations – always – as exemplified by our management, staff,
instructors, students, and graduates.”

Dusit International currently operates 27 hotels and resorts with over 60 properties in the pipeline in key destinations worldwide. At least eight new hotels are slated to open this year across Bahrain, Bhutan, China,
Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam. In August, Dusit will also open the pioneering Dusit Hospitality Management College, a unique fully integrated hospitality school and hotel in Manila.
