Dusit Thani Dubai (formerly Dusit Dubai) is a 153 m (502 ft), 40-storey hotel tower in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Construction of the Dusit Dubai was completed in 2001. The most notable aspect of the tower is that the structure is divided into two bases which join at the top. It is believed to have been constructed as such to resemble the wai, the Thai greeting.

The left base contains apartments while the right base are fully furnished hotel apartments. The area above the "join" is the hotel with a gym and open air swimming pool on the top floor.
