Dusit Fudu Hotels and Resorts has signed a management agreement with the Suzhou New District Economic Development Group Corporation to bring a Dusit Thani Wellness Resort to Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province.
It will be the city's first internationally branded lifestyle and hot springs deluxe resort.
Scheduled to open in the last quarter of 2018, the 250-room resort is located within a tourism zone set to become a new lifestyle destination, the Suzhou National Hi-Tech District, currently home to more than 1,500 foreign companies and more than 40 Fortune 500 companies.
The resort is 20 minutes by car from the Suzhou high-speed train station, 30 minutes from Shanghai by high-speed train, and a 30-minute drive from the central business district.
Situated on the lower reaches of the Yangtze River and the shores of Lake Tai, Suzhou is a major economic centre and focal point of trade and commerce in Jiangsu Province.
The key feature of the new resort is its unique destination wellness centre that will include more than 30 indoor and outdoor natural hot springs pools.
Oxygen rooms, infrared cabins and salt saunas will also be available in the centre for guests and local residents. This extensive offering will be complemented by the Thai-inspired treatments of Dusit's own Devarana Spa.
