Dusit has unveiled plans for a new luxury hotel in southwest China’s Sichuan province.
The company’s Chinese subsidiary, Dusit Fudu Hotels & Resorts, has signed a management agreement for the all-villa Dusit Thani Resort Panzhihua, in southern Sichuan.
Scheduled to open in 2016, the new luxury resort will be located in a new ecotourism development zone, currently being developed in the area. The property will feature 200 villas, a Devarana Spa, two restaurants, an indoor swimming pool, gymnasium and a golf driving range. The hotel will also offer extensive conference and banqueting facilities.
“The success of this new management bid by Dusit Fudu has been spurred by our confidence both in the property and the potential of Panzhihua as a growing leisure destination,” said Lim Boon Kwee, president of Dusit Fudu. “Dusit Thani Resort Panzhihua, Sichuan, with its unprecedented facilities [will] attract local and international travellers.”
The hotel will be accessed via Panzhihua Bao’anying Airport, which is connected to Sichuan’s state capital Chengdu and the national capital Beijing.
