Alshaya Group to bring hotel to Arabian Gulf Street in popular Bneid Al-Gar area
Alshaya Group has revealed plans to bring the Canopy by Hilton hotel brand to Kuwait.
Canopy by Hilton Kuwait will be located on Arabian Gulf Street in the popular Bneid Al-Gar area. Development of the hotel is expected to start shortly, with opening planned for late 2022.
“Canopy by Hilton responds to a growing customer preference for upscale hotels that fit authentically into local neighbourhoods and cultures,” said Rudi Jagersbacher, Hilton president Middle East, Africa and Turkey.
“We can tick all the boxes with our plans to bring the brand to Kuwait – with a great location in a great neighbourhood, and a trusted partner in Alshaya Group.”
Alshaya Group recently announced a master development agreement to bring 70 Hampton by Hilton hotels to its operating markets in MENA, Turkey and Russia.
Kuwait’s first Hampton by Hilton, located in Salmiya, is expected to open in late 2021.
