Shanghai, 27 December 2019 – Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, represented in China by Dusit Fudu Hotels and Resorts, has signed a management agreement with Jiangxi Hot Spring River Hotel Operation and Management Co., Ltd to operate two new properties in the Anyuan County of Ganzhou City, Jiangxi Province, Eastern China.

Operating under Dusit International’s upper-upscale Dusit Thani and upper-midscale Dusit Princess brands respectively, both properties will be located near the entrance of Mount Sanbai National Park, approximately 90 minutes by car from Ganzhou Huangjin Airport and 30 minutes from the high-speed train station. This scenic area is renowned for its abundant forests, stunning hiking trails, beautiful hot springs, and well-preserved Hakka houses with a history dating back to the 17th century. 

Designed to cater to corporate and leisure travellers alike, the deluxe Dusit Thani Hot Springs Resort will comprise 500 exquisitely furnished guest rooms and suites set within a luxurious hot springs experience. The resort’s wide range of facilities and amenities will include an all-day dining restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, a well-equipped gym, natural hot springs pools, Dusit’s signature Devarana Spa, and a 1,000 sq m pillarless ballroom with adjoining meeting rooms.

Located next to the Dusit Thani Resort, the Dusit Princess Serviced Residence, meanwhile, will comprise 260 well-appointed apartments, an all-day dining restaurant, and a lobby lounge. The upper-midscale property will focus on in-room essentials such as premium quality-bed, a cosy bathroom with a powerful shower, a range of modern amenities, and creative, vibrant décor.

Guests at both properties will enjoy easy access to everything Anyuan County has to offer, including the chance to trek the forested slopes of Mount Sanbai, visit the world’s largest mechanical clock in central Ganzhou, and explore the ancient carved grottoes of Tongtian Cliff, the largest cluster of its kind in the region.

“We are delighted and honoured that Jiangxi Hot Spring River Hotel Operation and Management Co., Ltd has chosen Dusit to manage their unique properties and bring our distinctive brand of Thai-inspired, gracious hospitality to Anyuan County,” said Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International. “To be selected to manage Dusit Thani Hot Springs Resort and Dusit Princess Serviced Residence in this beautiful location demonstrates the growing significance of our brands in China. We now look forward to delivering exceptional experiences for our guests while further cementing our reputation for hospitality excellence in Jiangxi province and beyond.”

Dusit International currently operates nine hotels in China and has 26 properties in the pipeline.
