 The Santiburi Group Will Commence Management
of all Company’s Assets; Concludes 12-year
Affiliation with Dusit Hotels


July 1, 2004 - Effective September 01, 2004, the Santiburi Group will commence management of all company’s assets as well as future developments through its own Management Company. This coincides with the conclusion of a successful 12-year affiliation with the Dusit Hotels and Resorts as the management partner, for which the Santiburi Group is truly grateful and would like to express its appreciation for Dusit Hotels and Resorts’ management excellence and cordial relationship.
The Santiburi Group was founded by Khun Santi Bhirom Bhakdi in 1992 when it opened one of Thailand’s premium quality championship golf course in Chiang Rai, the Santiburi Golf and Country Club. This delightful northern golf course, presenting a perfect blend into natural hilltop landscape, was designed by Robert Trent Jones. Jr., one of the world’s finest golf course designers. Simultaneously, the Santiburi Group expanded a second establishment, the Santiburi Dusit Resort in Koh Samui, one of the first and foremost luxury hotels on the island.

It has been the aim of Khun Santi to

eventually establish his own management company overseeing the Group’s existing operations as well as future projects to the best of quality. As a result, in the view of up coming projects mentioned below, the timing is ideal for the Group to launch Santiburi ‘s own brand in order to reinforce its highest commitment to quality across all of its increasing business operations.

In early 2004, the Santiburi Group has added the first and only 18 hole Championship Golf Course in Koh Samui, the Santiburi Samui Country Club. This stunning golf course is built on the mountainside of Maenam, featuring breathtaking views of the Gulf of Siam with its numerous islands as well as Samui’s famous coconut plantations. Moreover, the Group’s second luxury hotel on Koh Samui, the Bophutburi Resort and Spa, is currently under construction and is scheduled to be opened in December 2004. In the Group’s project pipeline is the “top of the end” Villas Real Estate project situated on the hillside overlooking Maenam bay.

The Santiburi Dusit Resort will be renamed as the Santiburi Resort, Koh Samui and will continue its affiliation with The Leading Small Hotels of the World thereby, strengthening the Group’s commitment 

to quality not only in keeping up with its products, facilities, and services, but also to continuously strive for excellence in all areas. The Santiburi Resort underwent major renovations in 2003 and has added brand new state of the art meeting facilities, Jacuzzi pool villas with private terraces, and a new pool deck with bar. The most notable addition to the resort is the mentioned breathtaking view golf course, the Santiburi Samui Country Club.
