Dubai-based Jumeirah Group has announced plans to relaunch its hotel in Kuwait as the luxury Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa.
Almost 40 years ago, the Messilah Beach Hotel opened in Kuwait and will be revived this spring, the hotelier said in a statement.
Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa will feature 307 rooms and suites, 80 serviced apartments and 12 chalets.
Guests of the hotel will also have access to six restaurants and lounges, a Talise spa, 200-metre private beach, swimming pool and children’s play area, in addition to extensive conference and banqueting facilities.
Jumeirah Group’s first property in the Gulf outside the UAE features many aspects of Arabic architecture in a contemporary setting.
Traditional oriel windows of Mashrabiya designs are a characteristic throughout the resort and respect Kuwait’s rich heritage.
Mark Griffiths, general manager of the hotel, said: “Kuwait’s new landmark will bring with it an exciting set of new experiences interlaced with heritage and history.
"Jumeirah Group’s extensive international experience coupled with the highest standards of service will reward the guests of Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa with exhilarating experiences unrivalled in Kuwait when it opens later this spring.”
He added: “Living up to the Jumeirah promise of Stay Different, we are keen on delivering the best of everything from dining to leisure and relaxation. We look forward to opening our doors soon and welcoming our first guests.”
Jumeirah currently operates 20 luxury hotels and serviced apartments, including ten in the UAE, seven in Europe, two in the Maldives and one in China.
A further 15 hotels are currently under development and the company plans to have more than 30 hotels under operation within the next four years.
