Travel Tuesday: Dusit Thani Hotel - Abu Dhabi (Review)





Dusit Thani Hotel - Abu Dhabi


Dusit Thani Hotel is a new 4-star hotel in the growing business and government district of Abu Dhabi. This central location gives its patrons a short taxi ride to the corniche, local malls and cultural attractions. Dusit Thani is positioned upon a rising hill in which the glass towered building  the appearance of supreme grandeur. Appearances within Dusit Thani did not disappoint; the hotel is outfitted with accessories of pure luxury. Upon arrival, excellence is immediately noted. Everyone from valet, concierge, room service, to restaurant employees were extremely gracious. 





Opulence is duly noted throughout the hotel. Dusit Thani has several amenities that are indicative of a 4-star hotel. The lounge areas are outfitted with touches of cultural Thailand while infusing the ornate desires of the middle east. There is not limit on the amount of gold trimmings, crystal, diamonds, and decorative stone floors.





The view from my room on the 23rd floor overlooked the city. I could see pieces of Al Reem Island to the right and the direct views of the government district. I'd say it's an average view in comparison to Etihad Towers or Emirates Palace.








The room had all of the touches of standard four star amenities. The space is comparable to several hotels in the area with similar pricing. It had a large sized flat screen TV with both Western and Eastern Channels, huge bathroom with a soaking tub for two, standard and overhead shower heads, comfortable robe/slippers and a sizable bed.

I was not pleased with the comfort of the bed or the quality of the toiletries.  The toiletries are by Nature Touch and the bed was pretty hard, in my opinion. Firm mattresses seem to be standard in the region because I've only found true comfort at the Sheraton Hotel Corniche.







Without a doubt, I had to try room service. I ordered breakfast and it did not disappoint. The omelet was perfect as well as the potato cakes, beef bacon, and chicken sausage. They offered a strong brew of coffee that helped kick start my day.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay. Check-in and Check-out were easy, service was prompt. Because smoking is so prominent in the region, I would suggest more control over non-smoking rooms because my room had hints of smoke.

Loved my stay, see you again Dusit Thani.
