Quotes from UAE National Colleagues.
Diana Jan, Account Specialist
“As we all understand the Thai culture they are one of the best in hospitality industry, secondly the iconic shape of the building makes a difference in the business district, as it is the heart of the city, convenient and accessible from all directions. Beside I have been recruited at the DTCM, while I was taking the ‘START’ hospitality course and I have been interviewed by all the local hotel chain groups. Among all these hotels I chose Dusit Thani Dubai because I found them really friendly and highly professional and also I would like to mention that IIP programe also attracted me for further development.”
Chef Saif Matar Abdullah Saif, UAE National Chef
“I chose Dusit Thani Dubai because I have been to other hotels and none of them are as friendly and family like. I was also intrigued by the Thai culture and wanted to learn more. I am working in the kitchen because I would like to have a wide experience in the culinary field and know how to prepare the different types of cuisines and hence be unique.”
