Jumeirah to open new Kuwait property
Kuwait City, February 20, 2013
Jumeirah Group has announced that its first property in the region outside the UAE, Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa, will soon open in Kuwait.
Almost 40 years ago, the Messilah Beach Hotel opened in Kuwait and quickly became the favourite destination for both locals and visitors alike, a statement from the hotel said. Situated in the same location, the spirit of the old Messilah Beach Hotel is about to be revived and memories awakened with the opening of the Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa.
The property 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, the statement said.
Messilah is inspired by its location and its name derived from the old Kuwaiti word, Massiyalah, where rain water gathers and flows into the sea. Water is a recurring feature throughout this beachfront resort with streams, channels, fountains, pools and many other water features. This theme is also reflected in the Talise spa which means ‘beautiful waters’ in a Native American language, it said.
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. The 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.”
Regarded as one of the most luxurious and innovative hotel chains in the world, with numerous international awards, Jumeirah Group will offer Kuwait a one-of-a-kind experience that combines its professionalism with Messilah’s existing extensive history to help create memories.
“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,” Griffiths concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
