BANGKOK, 24 August 2018: Dusit International has signed a management agreement with Vogue Pranang Bay Resort Company to operate dusitD2 Ao Nang, slated to open at the end of this year.
The hotel will be the second Dusit property in the popular resort area of Krabi.
Located 25 km from Krabi International Airport, the new dusitD2 Ao Nang is located on a hillside in downtown Ao Nang, yet within walking distance to the beach.
DusitD2 Ao Nang comprises 173 rooms and suites with a choice of sea, mountain and pool views.
Amenities include an indoor and outdoor all-day-dining restaurant, a lobby bar, an outdoor swimming pool with a separate kids’ pool, a fitness centre, a spa, and a 200-square-metre ballroom.
For families travelling with children, dusitD2 Ao Nang also features an extensive kids’ playground that will keep the hotel’s youngest guests entertained throughout their stay.
Popular activities in Krabi around dusitD2 Ao Nang include jungle trekking, sightseeing excursions and boat trips to some of Thailand’s most stunning beaches and islands, located within protected national marine parks, for snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking and bird-watching.
Krabi’s famous limestone hills and caves also attract climbers from around the world, especially the limestone rock faces at Railay Beach, where several popular rock-climbing schools can be found.
“We are very happy to be bringing the dusitD2 brand to Ao Nang,” said Dusit International group chief executive Officer, Suphajee Suthumpun. “This beautiful area has always been very popular with visitors and adventure-seekers from Thailand and all over the world. We look forward to welcoming all our guests to the new dusitD2 Ao Nang, which combines modern comfort, convenience and connectivity with the excellent service and hospitality that is the hallmark of all Dusit hotels.”
The upscale mid-market dusitD2 Ao Nang is a rebrand of the previous Vogue Resort and Spa. The property has been entirely refurbished and updated, with new additions to the existing buildings.
Dusit International currently operates 27 hotels across four brands worldwide, and is rapidly expanding its footprint in key global markets. dusitD2 Ao Nang will be the third dusitD2 branded hotel in Thailand, following dusitD2 Chiang Mai and dusitD2 Kao Yai.
