Dusit collaborates with Dyar Hotels and Resorts for Dusit Thani Jeddah and dusitD2 Salwa Doha

Dusit International has announced the first two projects of the newly established joint venture company that are now underway in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  A product of a collaboration between Dusit and local partner Dyar Hotels and Resorts will see the development of Dusit Thani Jeddah and dusitD2 Salwa Doha (Qatar) hotels.

Scheduled to open in 2018 in the Kingdom’s second largest city, the Dusit Thani Jeddah will come under Dusit’s original upper-upscale hotel brand Dusit Thani. The hotel will offer 211 guestrooms, including 38 suites and one Royal Suite. Dining options will range from a coffee shop to all-day dining and specialty restaurants. Business travellers will be able to use an Executive Lounge, business center and multi-purpose hall to suit various meeting and event needs. Additionally, a dedicated floor for female guests, separate male and female spas and a swimming pool will be available.  The Dusit Thani Jeddah will be within easy reach of both midtown and the Corniche.

In neighboring Qatar, the dusitD2 Salwa is also slated to open in 2018. It will come under Dusit’s “next generation” dusitD2 brand, offering 240 guestrooms, including 28 suites. Operated in a Shariah-compliant manner, the two specialty restaurants, an all-day dining option, two wedding halls, 10 meeting rooms, a swimming pool and spa will provide facilities and services. The dusitD2 Salwa will be located right in the heart of Doha, just minutes away from tourist attractions such as the Doha Fort, Souq Waquif and the Qatar National Museum.
