Dusit to manage Patong, Phuket hotel

The hotel is owned by Destination Properties of Bangkok and has 390 rooms and two restaurants. It will be run as a dusitD2 hotel.

The property, originally the locally-owned Grand Tropicana, is currently being overhauled. Dusit will occupy it on Feb. 1 and expect to have the soft launch in April.

Destination Properties is an investor in Phuket’s hotel and resorts market. Apart from Patong, it also owns hotels in Karon, Kamala and Surin Beach, along with one in Hua Hin.
