Drawing on a wealth of experience in hotel operations and management for luxury brands such as Kempinski Hotels and Okura Hotels & Resorts, Ms Getwansopon will oversee several departments to ensure every detail reflects Dusit’s unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality and delivers the utmost in comfort and convenience for guests.

In Sales & Marketing, Ms Nuengruethai Sa-nguansakpakdee has assumed the executive role of Director of Sales and Distribution. Previously Group Director of Sales & Marketing at 137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts in Bangkok, she has a proven track record in senior roles for five-star hotels and resorts across Thailand. Now, she’ll oversee all aspects of sales, revenue management, and distribution for Dusit Thani Bangkok.

Complementing Ms Sa-nguansakpakdee’s efforts is Mr Peeradej Charoendireksup, Director of Marketing. A seasoned marketing and communications professional with experience at Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, Centara Hotels & Resorts, and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), Mr Charoendireksup will drive Dusit Thani Bangkok’s strategic marketing and communication initiatives.

The hotel’s six restaurants and bars are poised to deliver memorable experiences under the leadership of Mr Jonathan Forestier, Director of Food & Beverage. Mr Forestier brings over 10 years of experience working in Thailand for luxury brands such as Sofitel and Anantara, most recently leading the food and beverage team at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel.

The newly appointed leadership team will work alongside the hotel’s Managing Director, Mr Adrian Rudin, an industry veteran with over thirty years of experience leading luxury hotels under renowned banners such as Shangri-La and Kempinski Hotels, to deliver meaningful and memorable experiences across the entire guest journey.

“Assembling this team of top industry talents strengthens the solid groundwork we have already done and ensures we are positioned to honour and build on the rich legacy of the original Dusit Thani Bangkok when we officially open our doors this September,” said Mr Rudin. “From luxurious accommodations and innovative culinary experiences to our transformative urban wellness concept, we’re committed to crafting exceptional moments at every turn, delighting discerning travellers and Bangkok residents alike.”

Situated in the same prime location as the original Dusit Thani Bangkok, which graced the Bangkok skyline from 1970 – 2019, the highly anticipated, reimagined version of Dusit’s luxury flagship hotel sits at the heart of Dusit Central Park, a landmark mixed-use development also comprising ultra-luxury residences (Dusit Residences and Dusit Parkside), a state-of-the-art office tower, a high-end retail centre, and a 11,200 sq m Roof Park (all slated to open in 2025).

Designed to deliver a fresh take on its predecessor’s esteemed heritage and once again stand as a beacon of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality for discerning travellers from all around the world, the newly built 257-key hotel offers ample space for guests, including elegant suites exquisitely crafted by internationally acclaimed Asian interior design firm André Fu Studio, starting at an impressive 50 sq m. A singular corridor floorplan ensures every room offers a breathtaking view of Lumpini Park, and each makes the most of this unparalleled vista with floor-to-ceiling windows and inviting window seating that frames the impressive landscape and fully immerses guests in the stunning scenery. This thoughtful design combination creates an atmosphere of tranquility and connection with nature, all while enveloping guests in luxurious comfort.

The new Dusit Thani Bangkok also boasts a unique urban wellness concept, elevated dining experiences created in collaboration with renowned chefs, a stylish multi-level rooftop bar created in partnership with award-winning mixologists, and expansive banqueting and meeting facilities spanning over 5,000 sq m. This includes one of the largest grand ballrooms in Bangkok, boasting an impressive eight-metre-high ceiling and a panoramic view of Lumpini Park, and a diverse selection of meeting spaces for intimate gatherings and large-scale events. The hotel’s new benchmarks in service, design, and overall guest experience will ripple across Dusit Hotels and Resorts worldwide.
