Bangkok, 19 May, 2014 – Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket has recently been assessed and found to be conforming to requirement of “5-star Resort Standard” of Thailand Tourism Standard for the year 2014-2016, certified by Thailand Hotel Standard Foundation and Department of Tourism, Ministry of Tourism and Sports.
The resort has retained a five star resort rating award since 2005.
To be certified on this prestigious Thailand Tourism Standard, awarded hotels have contributed significantly the growth and development of the Thai tourism industry and will continue to play a vital role. Hence in order to increase Thailand’s competitiveness potential on the international stage, the Thai hotel industry deemed it an important step to raise overall standards by adopting internationally-recognised practices, such as the introduction of a “precise, accurate and reliable” hotel standard and certification process that would enable Thai hotels to compete with world-class hotel properties on an equal footing.
