Bangkok -- Dusit Fudu Hotels and Resorts is pleased to announce the signing of an agreement with Hainan Jinxiu Industrial Company Limited to manage a new luxury Dusit Devarana Resort in Haikou City, Hainan Province.


Complementing the group's original Dusit Thani brand, Dusit Devarana is a significant niche offering that leverages Dusit International's rich Thai heritage and history of service excellence to offer an intimate, high-end sanctuary experience for discerning travellers. Scheduled to open in 2018, the Dusit Devarana Resort, Haikou West will offer 108 guest rooms and villas, conveniently located within a 15-minute drive from the city centre and a 30-minute drive from Haikou Meilan International Airport.

Situated on the northern coast of Hainan Island, Haikou is the capital and most populous city of Hainan Province. Government officials are currently at work developing the area into a world-class tourist destination by 2020. In an effort to lure more visitors to the tropical island, the Chinese government launched a program in 2011 that allows locals and tourists alike to enjoy duty exemptions and tax refunds on imported products before flying to other airports in China.

Strategically located within the mega-tourism zone set to become a new lifestyle destination, the resort will feature the award-winning Devarana Spa, with its full range of Thai-inspired wellness programmes. Dining options will include an all-day dining outlet and a Chinese restaurant, as well as a complete range of recreational facilities including a gymnasium, an outdoor swimming pool, kid's club and boutique store. Expansive meeting rooms featuring the latest audio-visual facilities will cater to the island's growing business segment.

Mr. Lim Boon Kwee, President of Dusit Fudu Hotels & Resorts, said, "We are pleased to announce this new luxury resort in Haikou, an exciting city in which to begin what will be a strong year for Dusit Fudu. Alongside our partners, I am confident that the Dusit Devarana Resort, Haikou West will deliver an inspiring and rejuvenating getaway for our guests."

Expressing his confidence in the management and hospitality expertise of Dusit Fudu Hotels & Resorts, Mr. Zheng Shu Ping, Chairman of Hainan Jinxiu Industrial Company Limited, said "We are delighted to partner with Dusit Fudu and are certain that by bringing Dusit's signature gracious service to Haikou, the new Dusit Devarana Resort, Haikou West will be a remarkable success."
