29 February, 2012
Dubai: Dusit Thani Dubai’s new Director of Rooms aims to further elevate the hotel as the Thai hospitality ambassador of the Middle East.
Tarek Aouini joins the hotel with a wealth of experience and aims to enhance Dusit Thani Dubai’s unique Thai culture and heritage to make it the icon of Thai hospitality throughout the Middle East.
“I want to make sure that Dusit Thani Dubai, as a Thai company in Dubai and the Middle East, is more competitive with other international companies,” Mr Aouini noted, adding: “I am amazed with the Thai touch and the Thai hospitality. When I got the opportunity to be part of it, I didn’t want to miss it.”
Mr Aouini grew up in Dubai and has worked for a number of European chains across the region. Prior to joining Dusit Thani Dubai, he worked and pre-opened various hotels and resorts in Libya, the Maldives and Dubai, before being part of a pre-opening team in the Maldives.
“Dusit was very appealing to me as a company and with its Thai hospitality. I am Arabic, I grew up in Dubai and I have all this Arabic experience with different European chains as well, but the Thai experience is something new for me and I am looking forward to working with the hotel,” Mr Aouini noted.
James Wilson, General Manager at Dusit Thani Dubai, added: “The hotel is undergoing several key changes at the moment and Mr Aouini’s passion for our Thai culture and heritage and his experience will further harness the development of Dusit Thani Dubai and its positioning within the market.”
