Dusit InternationalLocal dignitaries and VIPs joined the Dusit International executive team at Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi’s Grand Opening gala event, which saw a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony take place, followed by a tour of the property. 
Guests at the well-attended event were entertained by traditional Thai dancers, a jazz quintet ensemble and international food stations showcasing the hotel’s excellent selection of Arabic, Thai and International dining venues.

Blending the best of both cultures, the hotel’s design exudes Arabian grandeur imbued with touches of Thai warmth. 402 guest rooms are on offer as well as 131 deluxe serviced apartments, five world-class dining outlets and a spacious Conference Centre that can host up to 2,000 guests.

Note to Editor: Dusit International has more than 60 years’ experience in the hotel and hospitality field. Founded in 1949 by Honorary Chairperson Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui, whose first hotel was the Princess on Bangkok’s New Road, Dusit International has since acquired a unique portfolio of distinctive hotels, building upon Thai culture and tradition to create a personalized welcome for all guests made distinctive under the Dusit International brand promise; the delivery of an ‘experience that enlivens the individual spirit, no matter the journey’.

Dusit International comprises four hotel brands: Dusit Thani, dusitD2, Dusit Princess and Dusit Devarana. It also operates Dusit Residences and its own signature Devarana Spa.
