Dusit International recently launched Dusit Thani Residence in Davao City. Featuring 168 full-service apartment units, the development offers upscale, “magic-from-the-orient” options for business travellers.
“Dusit Thani Residence will offer a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of urban Davao,” said Ms. Evelyn Singson, president of Philippine Hoteliers Incorporated, the owning company of Dusit Thani Manila, at the formal opening of the project’s showroom. “We planned this urban residence and hotel to exude a resort-like experience that combines Filipino warmth and joyfulness, and Dusit’s trademark Thai hospitality.”
Dusit International partnered with Filipino real estate developer, Torre Lorenzo in the conceptualization and construction of Dusit Thani Residence, and the adjoining dusitD2 Hotel. This is the first Dusit Thani Residence in Asia, as the company’s similar projects are in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The property, located in the heart of the jewel city of Southern Philippines. will be turned over in 2018.
The main highlight of the project is the “amenity theater” that fosters community and shared activities. Bound by the hotel and the residential tower blocks, the amenity theater contains the swimming pools, water features and decks amidst a tropical landscaped setting. Complementing this central feature are the dining outlets, function rooms, children’s play area, and wellness facilities. An infinity edge pool will be located at the second level.
“The architecture is contemporary and mindful of the comfort of our guests. The design incorporates tropical elements that allow for shading and ventilation while maximizing the use of natural lighting,” said Torre Lorenzo president Tomas Lorenzo.
Dusit International and Torre Lorenzo tapped Rchitects, Inc., to lead the project development. The firm has built resort and hotel projects in Boracay, Bohol, Ortigas, Cagayan de Oro and Palawan. Rchitects, Inc. is working with Manny Samson + Associates (MSA), a leading interior design company focused on decorating for hospitality projects across Southeast Asia.
The property can be found within Torre Lorenzo’s Siam 8000 property complex along Maryknoll Road, Lanang, Davao City.
