One of the most striking buildings on the street, the Dusit is a bow-legged colossus of glass and steel. Its Thai-style decor is evident throughout, from the Asian-chic rooms to the smart sarong-wearing staff. Rooms are lovely, with rich browns and sweeping views.
Guests can work out in the well-stocked gym with its bird’s-eye city views or laze in the 36th floor open-air pool, before heading to the mini spa to beautify themselves for a night out on the town. This used to be the closest you’d get to a high-class bargain on Sheikh Zayed Road, but prices have risen in recent times.
