Dusit Thani Bangkok has announced that it will close April 16, 2018 to reform as part of a mixed-use development area. Along with the hotel, the project will feature residences, retail areas, office spaces, and a large green space. In keeping with the original hotel theme, many of the original trees on the property will be incorporated in the new design, as will its handcrafted teakwood décor, historical ornaments, and its famous spire. The new design is set to open in 2022.
In honor of its last few months, the 48-year-old hotel is offering special events and promotions to thank its guests through the years.
The Wedding Memories promotion will offer all couples who have held a wedding reception at the hotel since its opening in 1970 a free three-course lunch or dinner. Guests should show a picture of their wedding to redeem the offer.
Couples will also receive a copy of the "Thai Way of Life: The Dusit Cookbook," and a privilege card offering them 27 percent off food (a la carte and international buffet) from now until April 15, 2018.
Additionally, any guest who books a stay on the hotel’s website before December 31, 2017 will receive the Dusit Best Rate Guarantee, which includes a free upgrade to the next room category upon availability, early check in after 6 a.m. and late check-out until 6 p.m. and one daily BTS ticket per person.
For bookings made by August 31 for stays before October 31, the hotel is also offering its Superior Room, including complimentary upgrade to a Dusit Room (executive suite with living room totaling 645 square feet) upon availability, for the special price of only 4,800 baht (approximately $141) per night including breakfast for two.
