Dusit International has announced plans to develop a large spa and wellness resort in Hainan province, China.

Dusit Devarana Hainan will be located within rare natural hot springs – called Baoting’s “Seven Fairy Mountain” – and the 300-room resort is scheduled to launch in 2013.

The resort will be designed as a low-rise complex of villas and deluxe rooms featuring dozens of crafted spring-water bathing pools of varying sizes and temperatures.

Hot and cold spring water will be supplied to guest bathrooms across the resort and also used in the resort’s large spa.

Dusit will manage the site on behalf of owner, Hainan Yuan Qi Investment Company Limited.

Chanin Donavanik, CEO of Dusit International, said: “Our unique hot springs resort in Hainan reaffirms Dusit International’s strong commitment to expansion into China.”

The company previously announced its inaugural resort in China, Dusit Thani Hainan, in 2011 and has aggressive expansion plans underway in China and throughout the region.

The three other properties under the Dusit Devarana brand concept are in India; Dusit Devarana New Delhi (2012), Dusit Deverana Jaipur and Dusit Devarana Rishikesh, both due to open in 2014.

Founded in 1948 by Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui, Dusit International current;y comprises five hotel brands: Dusit Thani Hotels & Resorts, Dusit’s second generation dusitD2 hotels & resorts, Dusit Princess Hotels & Resorts, Dusit Devarana Hotels & Resorts, and Dusit Residence Serviced Apartments.
