These properties will be integral parts of two major mixed-use development projects, totaling 450 keys.
Nestled in Coorg (Kodagu), often hailed as 'The Scotland of India,' the Dusit Princess Coorg Hotel, Karnataka, India, and Dusit Princess Residences Coorg, Karnataka, India, will offer guests and residents an immersive experience amidst the breathtaking landscapes of the Western Ghats. The serene region, famed for its rolling hills, cool climate, lush forests, and World Heritage sites, promises curated wellness experiences, forest treks, and a focus on family and group leisure trips.
In Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, Dusit Princess Coorg Hotel and Residences, sprawled over 182,000 sq m, will harmoniously blend with the natural surroundings, employing locally sourced materials. The hotel will feature 100 guest rooms, complemented by 50 villas with 100 guest rooms in the residences. A wellness-centric approach, curated tours, and forest treks will define the guest and resident experience.
Expanding further, Ziogreen's second large-scale project in Bagepalli, overlooking the Chitravathi River, will set a new benchmark for wellness-themed concepts in South India. The 283,000 sq m mixed-use development includes Dusit Princess Resort Bagepalli, Karnataka, India, and Dusit Princess Residences Bagepalli, Karnataka, India.
Dusit Princess Resort Bagepalli, Karnataka, a 100-key haven, will fully embrace Dusit's Devarana Wellness concept, offering holistic well-being experiences beyond traditional spa offerings. Its counterpart, Dusit Princess Residences Bagepalli, Karnataka, will be an exclusive senior living enclave with 150 residential villas, complemented by putting greens and lifestyle facilities.
