Carlson Rezidor has re-opened the Radisson Blu Kuwait after a three year renovation period costing KD15m ($52m).

One of the major new additions to the hotel is the introduction of the Sky Lounge – a glass-encased rooftop facility with panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf, exclusively reserved for Business Class and Suite guests.

Sky Lounge will offer refreshments served either inside or on the outside terrace throughout the day, as well as business facilities (free WIFI access, computer work stations with printer, and complementary reading materials).

Wolfgang M Neumann, president & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group, said: “The re-opening of the Radisson Blu Hotel Kuwait signifies the launch of a new chapter of history for the property.”

The hotel now has 191 guest rooms including six junior suites, 16 executive suites, six deluxe suites, one admiral suite, and one presidential suite.

The Presidential Suite has been extended and upgraded, and now features an extra 55 sq m of space, with the installation of floor-to-ceiling windows in both the living room and bedroom.

The hotel’s food and beverage options have also undergone improvements.

Dasman Ballroom is an additional facility which has been developed for events and meetings, with 360 sq m of space that can accommodate 200 persons.
