Dusit Thani Dubai, Dusit International's flagship property in the emirate, has announced the completion of the renovation of its one- and two-bedroom suites.

The work represents the final phase of the facelift given to the hotel's rooms and suites, said Prateek Kumar, general manager at the hotel.

"After the renovation of the hotel's Deluxe Rooms and Executive Suites in 2013, Dusit Thani Dubai takes pride in the completion of its one and two bedroom Suites, which is the final phase of the facelift in the hotel's rooms and suites. The finished product has exceeded our expectations," said Kumar.

The new design features both traditional Thai-inspired handcrafted timber casegood furniture, "floating" walls embellished with gold leaf mouldings, and intricate hand carved artwork, and sculptures, together with modern LED, and energy saving lighting, and the latest LCD television and media hub technology in all 147 rooms.

Kumar added: "The completion of the one and two bedroom Suites is just one of the hotel's major projects in the pipeline. Also taking place this year is the introduction of two new food and beverage outlets and the spa facility."

Last year, EC Harris said in a report that more than 10,000 five-star hotel rooms in Dubai are in need of refurbishment, placing significant burden on hotel operators as they consider taking rooms out of operation to undertake the necessary work.

EC Harris, the global built asset consultancy, estimated that the cost of renovation is in the region of AED325,000 per room.
