Thailand’s Dusit International has signed a deal to manage a luxury hot springs resort in Yunnan Province, China. The new agreement with Tengchong Zongheng Volcano Tourism Development Company will see the opening of Dusit Devarana Hot Springs Resort, slated to open in 2021.
Catering to jet-setters searching for a retreat in nature, the luxury resort has 150 villas and guest rooms. The main feature of the resort would be the outdoor hot springs experience — providing a choice of therapeutic, aromatic, splash and foot reflexology pools. Each villa will also have its own hot springs pool where guests can enjoy views of the volcanic landscape.
Dusit Devarana is 10 minutes by car from Tengchong town centre and 30 minutes from Tengchong Tuofeng Airport.
For 2,000 years, Tengchong served as a vital link on the ancient Southwestern Silk Route. Situated in the western part of Yunnan Province, it’s a fast-growing destination renowned for its hot springs, volcanoes, ancient buildings, and other important historical sites.
“The pinnacle of our brand offerings”
Lim Boon Kwee, COO at Dusit International, commented: “Dusit Devarana represents the pinnacle of our brand offerings, providing a truly personalised experience for those who seek a balance of tranquillity, convenience and excellence. We look forward to delivering this and more at this stunning new resort.”
With 28 properties currently in operation across four brands in eight countries, Dusit International will see the number of Dusit properties surpass 70 within the next three years across key markets worldwide. In China, the company currently operates six hotels and has more than 20 properties in the pipeline.
