New resort is slated to open in Q1 2019, providing direct access to two championship golf courses.

Bangkok - Dusit International, one of Thailand’s foremost hotel and property development companies, has appointed Mr Eric Piatti as General Manager of Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore, the first Dusit-branded property within the country, scheduled to open in Q1 2019.

Mr Piatti is responsible for overseeing the pre-opening and ongoing operations of the new resort, which is located within the Laguna National Golf & Country Club and has the distinction of being the only resort in Singapore to offer direct access to a golf club.

Mr Piatti brings to his role more than 30 years of senior management experience at luxury hotels in the USA, Switzerland, Japan, China, India, Egypt and Thailand.

Operating under Dusit’s five-star Dusit Thani brand, Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore will comprise 198 tastefully-decorated rooms and suites, plus eight Golfer Chalets with their own private pools, in a prime location only 10 minutes by car from Changi International Airport and 15 minutes from downtown. The property offers direct access to two championship golf courses, and has extensive facilities for corporate and private events. 

Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore represents a key milestone in Dusit’s global expansion and I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead this stunning resort and introduce Dusit’s Thai-inspired, gracious hospitality to the country,” said Mr Piatti. “Ideally positioned to meet the needs of golfing enthusiasts, leisure travellers, and MICE clientele, the resort has vast potential, and my team and I look forward to making it a huge success.”
