exhibitions: ATM reports: JUMEIRAH FIRST IN KUWAIT


The Jumeirah Group has opened a property in Kuwait, marking the group’s first hotel in the Gulf region outside the UAE. The Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel and Spa opened on May 7, 2013 and boasts an idyllic spot along the shore of the Arabian Gulf, close to Kuwait City’s business and financial centre and only 10 minutes’ drive from Kuwait International Airport.

 Jumeirah Group President and CEO Gerald Lawless said: “The opening of Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel and Spa is a landmark event. We are proud to be bringing our brand to Kuwait and would like to thank the management of the hotel’s owning company Al Aziziah for giving us the opportunity to operate this remarkable property.”

The hotel comprises 408 guest rooms, including 316 rooms and suites, 80 residential suites and 12 villas with garden views. All rooms range from 40 to 60 square metres in size, suites from 80 to 360 square metres and villas from 350 to 450 square metres. A key element of the hotel’s design is the incorporation of water streams and fountains throughout the hotel that continue into the Talise Spa. The spa covers 3,500 square metres and includes 17 treatment rooms, two private suites and a salt room using salt blocks from the Himalayas for rejuvenation and wellbeing.

“I believe the quality of the hotel and the services delivered by our colleagues under the leadership of the General Manager Mark Griffiths will offer the people of Kuwait and visitors a true taste of Jumeirah’s unique brand of hospitality,” added Lawless.
