The Beach Club marks the first stage of a project which will also include Dusit Thani Residence Davao, and dusitD2 Davao hotels, which are set to open in 2019.
Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has marked the launch of The Beach Club at Lubi Plantation Island, Managed by Dusit, an exclusive island retreat in the Davao Gulf, Philippines.
Commanding an impressive location at the heart of Lubi Plantation, an 36-hectare master-planned leisure township within a former coconut plantation, The Beach Club invites visitors to experience an upscale island lifestyle amidst unspoiled reef, coral gardens, exotic marine life, and lush tropical fauna.
Easily accessible by boat from the mainland, the family-friendly retreat features a large swimming pool, a children’s play area, an events hall, the Tarictic Grill & Snack Bar serving barbecued favourites, and a private beach stretching 50 metres. Visitors can also easily arrange to explore the island’s prime snorkelling and diving sites.
Owned by Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation, The Beach Club at Lubi Plantation Island, Managed by Dusit marks the first stage of a three-pronged project which will also include two hotels – dusitD2 Davao and Dusit Thani Residence Davao. Both of these properties will be located in the heart of Davao City’s new central business district, Lanang, only 30 minutes by boat from The Beach Club, and just 15 minutes by car from Davao International Airport.
Slated to open in February 2019, dusitD2 Davao hotel comprises 120 well-equipped guest rooms and suites decorated in a contemporary, vibrant style. The focal point of the hotel is a lush, landscaped courtyard featuring a lap pool, a wading pool, a children’s pool, and deck areas for relaxation. From here, guests will enjoy direct access to an international restaurant, lounge areas, and a lobby set within a striking, glass-enclosed pavilion.
Other hotel offerings include Namm spa, a state-of-the-art gym, four meeting rooms, and two large ballrooms accommodating up to 1,000 guests. Dusit’s signature Benjarong Thai restaurant is expected to open in mid-2019.
The Dusit Thani Residence Davao hotel, meanwhile, is slated to open adjacent to the dusitD2 property in April 2019. The hotel will comprise 178 well-appointed studios and suites.
Mr Lim Boon Kwee, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International, said, “The opening of The Beach Club at Lubi Plantation Island signals an exciting time for Dusit in Davao, and we are delighted we can give visitors the opportunity to experience this beautiful sanctuary ahead of the opening of the two hotels – dusitD2 Davao and Dusit Thani Residence Davao. Ideal for day trips, special events, and memorable meetings, The Beach Club at Lubi Plantation Island offers a unique escape amidst nature, and we look forward to delighting visitors of all ages with our unique brand of Thai-inspired, gracious hospitality in this stunning island setting.”
