Dusit Thani Dubai begins refurbishment

Dusit Thani Dubai has announced that it has begun the refurbishment of its 174 guest rooms, set to be completed by the end of September. The refurbishment marks the first time in the hotel’s 11 years that such an extensive project has been carried out in Dusit International’s Middle East flagship hotel.

The five-star Dusit Thani Dubai hotel boasts 321 furnished rooms and suites. The Dusit Club Rooms and Dusit Grand Rooms are supported by the Dusit Club Lounge and offer additional facilities including complimentary meals and non-alcoholic beverages, butler services, pressing and laundry facilities and limousine airport transfers.

The property has seven food and beverage outlets, including the signature restaurant Benjarong, the first specialty restaurant to bring Royal Thai Cuisine to Dubai.

For business meetings or social gatherings, the Al Wasl Ballroom can accommodate up to 600 guests theatre style or 350 guests banquet style. Dusit Thani Dubai hotel's meeting center comprises five meeting rooms and a dedicated executive boardroom and a fully equipped business service center.

Other amenities include a gymnasium, a rooftop pool, and a Jacuzzi.

According to Dusit, the revamped rooms will feature “a modern, light and crisp appearance”, with the design incorporating “the hotel’s rich Thai cultural heritage through intricate art and design features”.

Renovations will not just focus on the aesthetics of the room, however, with modern technology to be integrated into all guest rooms. Earlier this year, the hotel announced complimentary WiFi throughout the hotel.

Phase two of the project, focusing on the refurbishment of the hotel’s 147 one and two bedroom residences, is planned to start during summer 2013.
