Dusit Thani’s Phuket Property To Undergo Massive Renovation

The Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket is undergoing the biggest renovation in its 30-year history as it looks to serve the growing number of tourists visiting the island, reports local media. The company is investing THB300 million on the project which started in 2015 and will take an additional 3 years to complete.

The tourism industry in Phuket has started to recover over the past 2 years and the company believes it will soon be at the same levels it was before the downturn. One of the key reasons for the tourism turnaround has been internal political stability while the expansion of Phuket airport has also helped.

Phuket International Airport now has direct connections to Europe, China, and other parts of Asia increasing the island’s popularity with foreign visitors. Domestic and international passenger arrivals to Phuket airport from January to October of this year totalled 13.8 million. This is a 10.6% increase when compared to the same period last year.

“With a total of 48 international flights in Phuket per day, tourism there is recovering, as many travellers are returning to the island. Over the past 5 years, 70% of tourists came to Phuket via Bangkok and the rest arrived via direct flights. But with greater air connectivity and cruises, the percentage of direct arrivals has grown to 45%,” says Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket General Manger Gordon Aeria to the Bangkok Post.

With more people heading to Phuket, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket decided to revamp its look. It has already updated 135 guestrooms and many of the common area facilities at the property. The hotel is working on updating the remaining 85 rooms and a Western-style restaurant will be opened next year. At the moment, 80% of the hotel’s clients are from abroad, but the property is planning to focus on the domestic market in the next few years.
