Asian hospitality group, Dusit International, has announced that the Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, its first property in the UAE capital, will open in the first quarter of 2013.

The luxury property will comprise 402 rooms and suites as well as 131 deluxe serviced apartments, the company said in a statement.

Located in the new business and government district, the Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi will target business travellers.

Scott Mawhinney, general manager at Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, said: "Abu Dhabi is emerging as one of the most sought-after business hubs in the region and we see enormous potential for a world-class business hotel in the capital.

"We are confident that with its superb strategic location, the new Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi will prove a major attraction to local, regional and international business travellers to the UAE capital seeking comfort, security and convenience."

The 37-storey 'glass tower' property has been developed with the rapidly growing Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) market in mind.

The hotel offers a conference centre with a variety of function rooms, including a 785 sq m ballroom that can host up to 2,000 guests.

The hotel will also offer a number of restaurants  including Benjarong, the signature Thai restaurant, the Capital Grill, Urban Kitchen, Dusit Gourmet and Orchid.
