Thai global hospitality company Dusit International has held a soft opening of its Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort on Vietnam’s largest island, Phu Quoc Island, marking its debut in the country.

Operating under Dusit’s upper mid-scale Dusit Princess brand, the new four-star resort is centrally located on the island’s west coast, overlooking stunning Bai Truong Beach, a 20-plus kilometer stretch of sand also known as Long Beach. Phu Quoc International Airport and the center of Duong To town are only short drives away.

Designed to blend Dusit’s unique Thai heritage with Vietnamese culture and local traditions, the family-friendly resort comprises 108 well-appointed contemporary guest rooms (ranging from 32 sq m Deluxe Rooms to 90 sq m Suites), most of which offer pristine ocean views.

The resort’s dining options include an all-day-dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, a swim-up pool bar serving Thai, Vietnamese and Western dishes, and Soi 14, a stylish beachfront bar and lounge where Thai Chef Somnuck Attaworn uses premium ingredients to put a contemporary spin on Thai street food favorites.

The centerpiece of the resort is its large infinity pool with ocean views, set within a lush tropical garden. Other facilities include a fully-equipped gym, a kids’ club, a large ballroom seating up to 190 people, and Luna Thai Spa, which offers a range of holistic treatments conducted by fully-qualified and highly-trained therapists.

Also known as Pearl Island, Phu Quoc Island is located off Vietnam’s coast in the Gulf of Thailand. An up-and-coming tourist destination, the island is known for its long, sweeping beaches, rich coral reefs, and dense, tropical jungles. Guests can easily arrange to visit popular local attractions such as Phu Quoc National Park, part of the UNESCO designated Kien Giang Biosphere Reserve, the sweeping and secluded Bai Sao Beach, the quirky Dinh Cau night market, and various temples and pagodas.

“Phu Quoc’s growing reputation as a major tourist destination is only set to flourish over the next ten years, as many high-end developments are slated to open,” said Ms. Suphajee Suthumpun, Group Chief Executive Officer at Dusit International. “Following our strategy for sustainable and profitable growth, which includes building our portfolio of international properties, the new hotel will open under our newly-developed franchise model, which helps property owners gain maximum returns while providing them with all the benefits they expect from a global brand.”

Dusit International was founded in 1948 by Honorary Chairperson Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui, whose first hotel was the Princess on Bangkok’s Charoenkrung Road. Today the company is a leader in hotel management and education and comprises a unique international portfolio of distinctive hotels and resorts operating under four brands: Dusit Thani, dusitD2, Dusit Princess, and Dusit Devarana.

The company currently operates 27 properties worldwide and has over 50 confirmed projects in the pipeline in key destinations such as Australia, Bhutan, China, Indonesia, Kenya, Myanmar, Oman, the Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, and the UAE.
