Dusit Thani Public Company Limited (DUSIT), one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has taken another big stride towards the return of its renowned flagship hotel – Dusit Thani Bangkok – by officially topping off the newly built structure that stands on the same prime plot as the original property, which graced the Bangkok skyline from 1970 – 2019.

The most significant property in Dusit’s pipeline, the reimagined flagship Dusit Thani Bangkok is scheduled to open in the second half of 2024 as part of Dusit Central Park, a landmark USD 1.37 billion mixed-use development opposite Lumpini Park in the heart of the Thai capital.

This highly anticipated project will also comprise ultra-luxury residences (Dusit Residences and Dusit Parkside), a state-of-the-art office tower, a high-end retail centre, and an 11,200 sq m Roof Park. These components are expected to open gradually in 2025 and 2026.

Comprising 257 guestrooms, one of the largest ballrooms in Bangkok, and a wide range of innovative dining, wellness, and meeting facilities, the new 39-storey Dusit Thani Bangkok represents a contemporary transformation of the original hotel and is designed to elevate Dusit’s standing on the world stage while redefining its heritage through a modern lens.

As part of its design, the new Dusit Thani Bangkok proudly integrates signature elements from the original property that were thoughtfully removed and preserved for use as part of the new building. This includes the original property’s signature golden spire, which was returned as part of the new property’s topping-off ceremony – and now stands once again as a beacon of luxury for discerning travellers from all around the world.

The original spire will be gracefully housed within a new, larger golden spire. A mini exhibition space located directly under this structure will serve as a permanent museum dedicated to preserving the memory of the original hotel. Guests and visitors can expect to find interactive exhibits detailing the storied legacy of the property, sweeping views of the adjacent Lumpini Park, and numerous photo opportunities against the backdrop of the original spire.
