Batangas, with its various sights, restaurants, resorts, and activities, has become a well-known vacation spot. No longer is it just known as that province that’s accessible from the metro—it is also a fast-growing city, not just in terms of avenues for leisure and entertainment, but also in terms of industry and economy.

It is these clear signs of economic growth and natural beauty that made Batangas, specifically the city of Lipa, the prime location for the first internationally-branded premium hotel in Batangas, the Dusit Princess Hotel.

The Dusit Princess Hotel, a collaboration between Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation (TLDC) and Dusit International and Dusit Thani Philippines Inc., is a 152-room luxury hotel. It will be located in Tierra Lorenzo Lipa, which is a mixed-use development that will also be home to two residential condominiums. Priding itself in being the first Dusit-branded hotel in the South, Dusit Princess Hotel promises to offer various amenities, including a pool deck, event and function rooms, and an all-day restaurant.

Why Lipa?

During the contract signing for the Dusit Princess Lipa, Mr. Tomas Lorenzo, president and CEO of Torre Lorenzo Development Corporation, talked in great length about why Lipa City was chosen as the site for the new hotel.

“It’s because Batangas is in our target for growth, especially for the Filipino overseas market,” Lorenzo shared. “[This hotel is] really to cater to the growing tourism market of Batangas. People really go there, and they stay, for whatever reason—to visit relatives, or for tourism purposes. So we really want to be the first to put a branded hotel in the whole province of Batangas, an internationally-branded hotel.”

Ms. Suphajee Suthumpun, the Group CEO of Dusit International, also added, “The city of Lipa has so many things to offer. But what is still missing is a city hotel, especially with this international standard and all kinds of experiences we offer.”

A good partnership

Lorenzo also talked about the partnership between TLDC and Dusit International. “Right now, Dusit is the fastest-growing hotel brand in the Philippines. We got into this partnership with Dusit because we saw the quality that Dusit offers, and it was a good match because we were really looking for a brand that Filipinos recognize for quality, standards, and service.”

One other reason why the partnership of TLDC with Dusit International, a Thailand-based multinational hospitality company, is seen as a successful opportunity is because the project provides a good avenue to showcase the blend of unique cultures, not just of the Philippines and of Thailand, but even those of the other countries where Dusit International is represented.

“Culturally, there is the warmth and graciousness of both cultures,” Lorenzo shared. “It’s not just a Thai hotel brand; it’s actually very international. So it’s taking the best of all cultures. If you notice, if you walk around the Dusit, you’ll see all types of nationalities. But what they have in common is that graciousness, that service, and then you add the Filipino to the mix, and it comes up with a very, very winning formula. So we will have that—the Filipino hospitality, the Thai graciousness, and the international flavour of Dusit.”

Dusit Princess Hotel is estimated to be completed by 2021. But it’s safe to say that even now, this new premium hotel in the South will provide even more anticipation to visit the vibrant and beautiful city of Lipa, Batangas.
