Scheduled for a soft opening in late 2013, the Dusit Thani Guam, located in the island’s prime commercial and tourist precinct, is a 417 room beachside resort hotel with 30 floors and is set to offer world-class facilities, including Guam’s largest conference center and a unique array of restuarants and bars.
Expressing his confidence in the management expertise of Dusit International, Mr. Michael Ysrael of Tanota Partners, said, “we expect the Dusit Thani Guam to be a spectacular business success under Dusit International’
Dusit International CEO Chanin Donavanik said, “The success of this new management bid by Dusit International has been spurred by our confidence both in the property and the potential of Guam as a growing destination. Not only will the Dusit Thani Guam with its unprecedented facilities attract a new generation of guests, we believe that within a short time it will become Guam’s premier hotel.” To support that aim and the future growth of the hotel, Dusit International is expanding its sales offices with the opening of a regional sales office in Tokyo late this year.
Dusit International also brings with it a widely acclaimed hospitality education expertise, an additional dimension warmly welcomed and seen as being a major contribution to the island’s continuing efforts to develop its hospitality sector and a key component in the owner’s choice of Dusit International.
Ms. Donna Baker of Tanota Partners said, “We believe that while raising the level of professionalism in the local hospitality industry, the Dusit's educational programs will result in many direct and indirect benefits that will provide the foundation for long-term development of the hospitality sector in Guam.”
Under the partnership agreement, scholarships at Dusit Thani College (Bangkok), culinary and training classes on Guam and bi-lateral internship exchange programs, will be available once the hotel is fully operational, helping to educate and train a new generation of Guam professionals in international hospitality.
