Daniel Andrews of the Dusit Thani Dubai Hotel gives ITCM the inside story during a visit to LondonThe Dusit Thani hotel in Dubai is in the welcoming shape of a Thai ‘wai’ greeting. It has two towers that can be seen as two arms, joining into a single building like the palms of the hands. The name ‘Dusit Thani’ derives from words signifying that one has reached a high level on one’s path to heaven.
On a visit to London, Daniel Andrews, an Englishman, outlined to ITCM how the Thai hotel group likes to merge the age-old charm and comfort of Thailand’s culture with the services and facilities required by modern upmarket travellers.
