A second Dusit managed property will open in Phuket with the Thai chains signing of the Destination Patong Resort as a dusitD2.
As reported in The Phuket News the deal will see a conversion of the 390-room property which in the past had been branded as a Courtyard by Marriott.
The hotel is currently being upgraded and will reportedly reopen in April. Over the past few years the Destination had been on the transaction market along with the adjacent Hard Rock Caf but failed to trade.
Owning company Destination Properties is headed by Canadian Gary Murray who last year sold the former Kamala Bay Terrace Resort which is now a Hyatt Regency.
Destination continues to own the Swissotel in Kamala, DoubleTree by Hilton in Surin and a property in Karon which is closed and had been affiliated to Ramada.
