I had an entertaining visit yesterday afternoon to the awaited Jumeirah Beach Hotel & SPA, it’s better known as Messilah-Beach Hotel which is located by Fahaheel express way next to the Messilah beach resort. I arrived at the main entrance at 4:00 pm where I met with people from their sales department that took me on a tour.
I have to say the extrerior look of the hotel did not give me the impression that it’s very luxurious on the inside, the architectural design was made by reowned Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM); same designers for Burj Khalifa and Al Hamra Tower.
I noticed the hotel was designed to look like a U-shape, they said this allows maximum number of rooms with sea view, since Kuwait municipality doesn’t allow tall buildings by the sea.
Inside there was a large reception with a nice lounge, the finishing was high quality with astonishing interior designs. The hotel covers a total area of 55,000 Sq. meter including a private beach, 307 rooms, 80 suites, 6 restaurants, two ballrooms, SPA, GYM, and more. On the back side there was 80 meter long private beach with 12 villas and children’s play area. Unfortunately I couldn’t see their rooms because it was getting late, but they gave me pictures for the rooms and other facilities.
I asked them about the opening date, they said probably by end of 2012. I find Jumeirah Messilah Beach a great addition to the 5-stars hotels in Kuwait, I’ll make sure to visit it when it opens, as for now enjoy the photos that I have struggled to take.
