Thai hospitality chain Dusit, acclaimed for blending modern global service standards with the country’s traditional hospitality in its hotels, hopes to open its first luxury property outside the country in New Delhi next year.

This will be followed by four more hotels and resorts, one each in the national capital, Jaipur, Rishikesh and Goa, by 2013, as part of the group’s major expansion plans in the international space.

‘The expansion plan in India includes opening of the company’s first-ever Dusit Devarana — the most luxurious brand under the Dusit International umbrella,’ said Anton Kilayko, corporate director with the hospitality chain.

Officials said they have entered into a joint venture pact with India’s $100-million Bird group, with interests in travel trade, hospitality and airport services, to bring the collection of Dusit brands to the country.

The new venture is looking to bring the best in Asian hospitality to the Indian capital before the Commonwealth Games to meet the anticipated shortage of rooms during what is touted as the second largest sporting event in the world.

The Dusit team in this Thai resort explained that the ‘Devarana’ brand itself has been derived from Sanskrit, translating into ‘garden in heaven’ and its spas combine age-old therapies and modern knowledge to pamper and revitalise guests.
