Bangkok-based Thai hospitality chain Dusit International is preparing to soft open its first branded residence outside of Thailand. The Dusit Residence Dubai Marina, a 35-storey landmark tower containing a total of 146 premier serviced residences, overlooks the lifestyle enclave of Dubai Marina. The property is scheduled to soft open October/November of this year, and will celebrate its grand opening in the first quarter of 2009.

For business travelers, we are only five minutes away from Dubai Media City, Knowledge Village and Dubai Internet City, said Dalip Singh, General Manager, Dusit Residence Dubai Marina. For our leisure guests we are within easy reach of Ibn Battuta and Mall of the Emirates, not to mention the extensive lifestyle facilities in the Marina itself.

The contemporary five-star residence is tastefully designed with a comprehensive range of integrated facilities for both short and long staying guests, featuring three food and beverage outlets, including the Dusit Gourmet and a Fusion Lounge, as well as a fully equipped health centre with swimming pool. A spa complete with Thai massage and foot reflexology will open later next year.

In addition we have state-of-the-art meeting rooms as well as mobile office support, which can be installed in the guests residence, complete with secretarial assistance if necessary, added Singh.

Dusit Residence Dubai Marina is now the third Dusit property in Dubai, with a residence in Al Barsha and the flagship property Dusit Thani which opened in 2001 and is located in the financial centre of Dubai.

The group also has another three properties to open on the iconic Palm Jumeirah, which are due for completion within the next few years. Dusit International will also be launching in Abu Dhabi before the end of next year and a new Dusit Thani Lake View hotel in Cairo is due to open in January 2009.
