Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore resort will have a total of 198 rooms and suites, restaurants, three swimming pools and three tennis courts.
Luxury urban resort first in Asia to give guests direct access to a pair of championship-calibre golf courses
DUSIT Thani, the Thai hospitality giant, is opening its first resort in Singapore – the new Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore in October.
The luxury urban resort, co-located with Laguna National Golf & Country Club near East Coast Park, will also be the first in Asia to give guests direct access to a pair of championship-calibre golf courses.
The resort will have a total of 198 rooms and suites, restaurants, three swimming pools and three tennis courts.
Other features include a putting green and its signature Thai-inspired Deverana spa.

Room reservations can be made for stays from Oct 1, although much will depend on further updates from the Singapore government as the economy continues its re-opening after emerging from the two-month Circuit Breaker.
The Laguna National club and all other golf clubs in Singapore have been closed since early-April.
Dusit Thani, which opened its first hotel in Thailand more than 70 years ago in 1948, currently owns and operates over 30 properties in 13 countries.
Eric Piatti, the 53-year-old general manager of Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore, said a key feature of the resort is that guests will be able to play golf at Masters and Classic, the two award-winning courses at Laguna National.
He said there is also an option of doing a complete book-out of the resort to stage high-profile events. This will allow organisers to ensure round-the-clock privacy and safety of players, sponsors, media and VIP guests.
Guests can either watch the golf games via live streaming on a dedicated event website, or head to several private vantage points to catch the action up close.
Laguna National is the only golf club in Singapore to have embraced a Singaporean winner of the prestigious Asian/European Tour competition.
Back in 2006, Mardan Mamat emerged as the champion of the OSIM Singapore Masters after he conquered the competition at the challenging Masters course.
The club opened with much fanfare back in 1993 during the heyday of the golfing scene in Singapore when an estimated 100,000 people played the sport.
The joining fee for Laguna National, which lease expires in 2040, currently starts at S$170,000.
