Dusit Thani Bangkok has confirmed that it will be operating until April 16 and is thanking its loyal customers by launching a series of special promotions inspired by its legacy and distinctive design.

They include the Wedding Memories promotion for all couples who have held a wedding reception at the hotel since it first opened in 1970. By showing a picture of their wedding reception, the couple will get a complimentary three-course set lunch or dinner at the hotel.

The couples will also receive a copy of the 'Thai Way of Life: The Dusit Cookbook,' and a privilege card granting them 27 per cent off food (a la carte and international buffet) until April 15.

Meanwhile, those booking a stay at the hotel via www.Dusit.com before December 31 will receive the Dusit Best Rate Guarantee, a free upgrade to the next room category upon availability, complimentary early check in after 6am and late check-out until 6pm, and one daily BTS ticket per person.

Bookings can be made by August 31 for any stay until October 31. The hotel also offers its Superior Room, including complimentary upgrade to a Dusit Room, a 60-square-metre executive suite with living room that is priced at Bt4,800 per night inclusive of breakfast for two.

Founded by Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui and opened on February 27, 1970, Dusit Thani Bangkok was once the city's tallest edifice and largest hotel. A new landmark for the capital, the hotel pioneered five-star hospitality inspired by authentic Thai values and ushered in a new era of tourism for the city, revolutionising dining, entertainment and even the way people organised wedding receptions in the process.

"Dusit Thani Bangkok is an icon made everlasting through all those who share its history, and we are sincerely grateful to everyone over the years who has made the hotel a resounding success," says general manager Sukanya Janchoo.

"The special series of events and promotions we are introducing have been specially designed to thank our guests, staff and stakeholders for their loyal support, as well as commemorate the hotel's rich heritage which will be carried over into our exciting new chapter to come. The Dusit Thani legend will continue."

The new Dusit Thani Bangkok will form part of a new mixed-use development to be built in partnership with Central Pattana. Alongside the hotel, the project will feature residences, retail areas, office space, and a large green space.

In keeping with the original Dusit Thani, many of the original hotel's trees will be incorporated in the new development, as will its distinctive, handcrafted teakwood decor, historical ornaments, and the property's famous spire.
