Dusit signs deal with Hotel Lhasa International

Leading Thai hotel and property group Dusit International has signed a deal with Hotel Lhasa International to open the Dusit Princess Kathmandu. 

This property is set to become the second Dusit-branded hotel the group has signed in Nepal after the Dusit Thani Himalayan Resort & Spa, further cementing the brand’s presence and profile in the region. 

The new signing will form part of the midrange Dusit Princess brand and will be in the enviable Lazimpat neighbourhood of Kathmandu. The hotel is a convenient 20-minute drive from the international airport, and many of the city’s most popular attractions and sights are within walking distance. 

Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer at Dusit International, said, “We are delighted to partner with Hotel Lhasa International Pvt. Ltd. to bring our unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality to Kathmandu for the first time.”

“Surrounded by popular cultural attractions, centuries-old religious sites, several embassies and major businesses, Dusit Princess Kathmandu is perfectly positioned to link guests with everything this fascinating city has to offer. We now look forward to delivering a hotel experience that delights on all fronts while providing sustainable value to all our stakeholders,” Mr Lim elaborated.
