Dusit Thani Residences set to invigorate Davao’s tourism market

A new property development seeks to redefine luxury and sophistication by offering a world-class living experience in the heart of Davao City. Dusit Thani Residences is a distinctive, full-service residence project that blends hotel-like amenities and the coziness of home in one indulgent environment.

Dusit Thani Residences is being developed across 1.2 hectares of acreage, prominently situated to capture spectacular city views and provide access to the property’s panoramic landscape.

This is the pioneering leisure development project of Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation (Torre Lorenzo), the real estate property firm geared towards expanding its portfolio through focused communities such as Siam 8000. Located at Maryknoll Drive in Barangay Pampanga, Davao City, Siam 8000 is a master planned community project that is part of Torre Lorenzo’s plans to set the bar high for luxury living in the southern metropolis.

“At Torre Lorenzo, we incorporate all the essential elements to effectively create more focused communities that enhance the way people live. We are proud with what we have planned for Siam 8000, an impressive luxury residential community in Davao that will be defined through its distinguishing landmark, the Dusit Thani Residences. Equipped with sleek interiors, superior amenities and modern conveniences, Dusit Thani Residences is envisioned to make Davao the ultimate destination for luxury residence,” said Mr. Tomas P. Lorenzo, Torre Lorenzo president.

Nestled in an exclusive urban setting, Dusit Thani Residences boasts 168 spacious and luxury serviced suites ranging from studio to three-bedroom units. Each unit is thoughtfully appointed and designed with elegant fittings and furnishings, offering guests a relaxed living space and stylish retreat that embody contemporary dwelling.

Residents and guests at Dusit Thani Residences are afforded dedicated concierge, in-room dining, 24-hour security, housekeeping, exterior and in-room maintenance, courier and transportation services. Conceptualized with both business and leisure travelers in mind, Dusit Thani Residences also offers a plethora of premium lifestyle amenities such as spa and wellness center, swimming pool, specialty restaurants, business center, meeting rooms, conference facilities and more.

Dusit Thani Residences marks the entry of an Asian hospitality brand in the Davao market. The new project serves as the inaugural development venture between Torre Lorenzo and Dusit International. Renowned for its unique take on gracious hospitality, Dusit International brings to the table over six decades’ worth of property management expertise.

The Bangkok-based hotel and resort firm is involved during the pre-opening and construction phases of the project, taking on the critical role of design and development consultant, thus ensuring that it is well planned and successful.

With Dusit International on board the upscale project, residents and guests can look forward to experiencing Thai hospitality without leaving the country. As both Thais and Filipinos are celebrated for their warmth and friendliness, Dusit Thani Residences will be a fusion of the best of both cultures.

Dusit Thani Residences is expected to be ready by 2016. Once the project is operational, Dusit International’s pioneering Philippine property, Dusit Thani Manila, will provide strong support through regular training programs, leveraging on the company’s robust history of hotel operations in the country in the last 25 years.

“We are very confident that our partnership with Torre Lorenzo will be successful, given the alignment in vision, complimentary skill sets, and each stakeholder’s commitment to quality. We look forward to seeing this project come to light,” said Mr. Ryan Chen, Dusit International’s Director of Development for Asia Pacific.

Mr. Chen noted that Davao bears immense potential as a travel destination, and this would help the region to exponentially grow the local real estate market.

“We certainly believe that quality projects such as Dusit Thani Residences will help increase awareness of Davao as a destination and raise the area’s profile,” said Mr. Chen. He added that the Dusit International brand is deeply committed to developing projects not only in Davao and the Philippines, but through all of Asia.
