Hospitality brands may have taken a hit this year with travel bans, but that isn’t stopping global hospitality company Dusit International from bringing some of that magical Thai warmth to guests right here in Singapore.
The wellness-focused urban resort, Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore, is located within the grounds of the acclaimed Laguna National Golf & Resort Club, and officially opened its doors to guests on December 4, 2020.
The five-star establishment will be the first in Singapore with direct access to two championship golf courses.
“Located on the same grounds of Laguna National Golf & Resort Club puts Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore in a unique and strong position to offer an integrated and full suite of services to appeal to a wide consumer segment, be it the C-suite executive, soon-to-wed couples and avid staycationers. Members of Laguna National Golf & Resort Club will also benefit from the enhanced facilities brought on by the multi-million- dollar development of this unique urban resort,” said Eric Piatti, General Manager of Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore.
Guests will be able to take their pick from 198 tastefully-decorated rooms and suites, complete with amenities from brands like L’Occitane and Nature Touch. Outside their private space, holidaymakers can indulge in any of the resort’s a fully-equipped large scale gym, three tennis courts, three swimming pools, and a sublime wellness centre with seven treatment rooms.
The resort has also come up with the Dusit Wellness programme, which offers plant-based ‘Healthy Power Foods’, ranging from fresh salads prepared with ingredients harvested from the resort’s very own Laguna Organic Farm, to low-carb and gluten-free options. The programme also comes with a Sleep Well menu that allows guests to personalise their experience with essentials that will help promote a good night’s rest.
These facilities are aimed to provide a holistic wellness approach for guests, which covers various aspects of living – socially, physically, environmentally, spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and vocationally.
Feeling hungry? Guests can feast on any of the establishment’s five dining choices. This includes Greenhouse, an all-day multi-ethnic restaurant with five different kitchens as well as Tee Deck, an alfresco bar & grill that’ll be serving popular Thai street food.
“We are thrilled to expand our footprint in a developed destination like Singapore with the opening of Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore. Its status as a modern metropolis and gateway to Asia markets will propel Dusit’s growth momentum as we seek to deliver our unique brand of Thai hospitality in other countries,” said KhunSuphajee Suthumpun, Group Chief Executive Officer of Dusit International.
Unlike most hotels in town, the resort is nestled on the east side of the island, just a short 10-minute drive from Changi International Airport, making it the perfect destination for a staycation that’s off the beaten track. If you’re not too fond of roaming around the verdant grounds, charming areas like Katong, Joo Chiat and Siglap are close enough for you to explore too.
