Dusit, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property
development companies, has signed a management agreement with
Zhejiang Xinyishang Tourism Development Company Limited to manage
a new luxury wellness resort in an area of outstanding
natural beauty just outside Hangzhou, one of the most prosperous
cities in China.
Set to comprise 300 villas and guest
rooms overlooking Moganshan’s rolling hills and tea
plantations, the Dusit Thani Resort Moganshan, Zhejiang will be
just 10 minutes by car from the high-speed train station, one hour from Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport, and 30
minutes from Hangzhou city centre. Shanghai can be reached
in just under two hours.
Guests wishing to take a break from the urban
sprawl will find plenty of options for biking, hiking, and
relaxing in lush green landscapes dotted with restored
19th-century mansions. They will also have access to a
comprehensive programme of wellness-focused activities and
experiences specially crafted to enhance their overall well-being.
The first phase of the project, comprising 100
villas and guest rooms, is slated to open later
this year. Facilities will include an all-day dining restaurant,
wellness centre with an outdoor swimming pool and Dusit’s
signature Devarana Spa offering private hot springs pools and a
wide range of personalised wellness treatments and therapies.
Phase two of the property, comprising 200 guest
rooms and villas, two specialty restaurants, outdoor recreation
facilities, a grand ballroom and conference facilities, is set to
follow in 2023.
“We are honoured and delighted to have the
opportunity to continue our sustainable expansion in China and
bring our unique brand of Thai-inspired, gracious hospitality to
the beautiful hills of Moganshan for the first time,” said Mr Lim
Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International. “Serving
as a world-class retreat for business and leisure travellers
alike, Dusit Thani Resort Moganshan, Zhejiang as all the elements
in place to provide highly memorable experiences for our guests,
and we look forward to making it a resounding success.”
Dusit’s portfolio now includes 347 properties
operating under six brands across 15 countries. In China, the
company currently operates 10 hotels and has more than 20
properties in the pipeline.
