Looking for Asian hospitality in the Middle East? Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi is the place to be!
Dusit Thani is a Thai phrase that means “A Garden in Heaven.”
Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi offers a fine Thai-inspired hospitality in the capital and heart of the United Arab Emirates.
Based on our experience, it is safe to say that Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi is the only hotel in the capital city that offers graciousness in Thai Hospitality.
Right from the welcome drink to the architecture to the room decor, it spells Asian sensibilities.
For nothing do they call Thailand the land of smiles and Dusit Thani brings those smiles to us in many innumerable ways throughout the stay.
Something unique we found about Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi is that it’s a luxury hotel offering great value for money. So, this could be a perfect choice if you prefer a longer stay.

With its prominent glass tower, Dubai Thani Abu Dhabi presents a fresh and innovative architectural design.
This relatively brand new property has a supermarket on the ground floor and hotel apartments in the block behind. The main tower has a glass front and looks very elegant. The decor of the restaurants is a bit dark but could be a respite in summers.
The state of the art Sky Dome in the convention area is another unique attraction in this hotel.
Although traffic in Abu Dhabi is much less crazy than Dubai, the corniche area in Abu Dhabi where most of the luxury hotels are located is one of the busiest areas in the city. Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, however, is located in the new government district, close to the Eastern Mangroves, Abu Dhabi’s lush natural habitat, the Corniche, the city’s iconic seaside promenade, and the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). Therefore, the location is perfect in case you are looking for a more quieter neighbourhood. On the downside, there are no big malls that you can take a stroll to.

That said, it is a good base for discovering the city, within 15 minutes you can get almost everywhere by cab, if it is Corniche Beach, Sheik Zayed Mosque, Marina Mall, Al Maryah, Saadiyat or Yas island or ADNEC, where a host of top conferences takes place.
The breakfast spread at Urban Kitchen is massive and one of the best in variety that we have come across, with Continental, Indian, Arabic and even Sushi varieties. It is a must-have. Apart from that there are two other fine dining restaurants, the Tai restaurant Benjarong being the best and the Urban Kitchen coming close second. The Capital Grill is another award winning restaurant famous for steaks.
