after opening its very first property in edinburgh in 2009, hotel missoni's focus shifts to the middle east. it's in kuwait where its second property opens its doors on tue - mar 1. a collab venture of the italian missoni fashion brand and the rezidor hotel group, the new property features 169 rooms and suites, and is part of the upscale symphony centre mall downtown. similar to missoni's fabrics and designs, the hotel's interior design is an explosion of colours, incorporating 85 different shades. it won't come as a surprise that you'll find plenty of missoni furnishings but creative director rosita missoni has these complemented with matching items from other leading design brands.

needless to say that all this comes with the very latest in technology, from the ipads used for guest check-ins to the magic mirrors installed in the rooms. and what else has hotel missoni in store? there's cucina, a restaurant that features menu seasonal and authentic italian dishes. the luna is a lounge + restaurant is perched high up on the 18th floor and serves arabic-oriental and mediterranean cuisine. ofcourse and the fabulous view of the arabian gulf is a true bonus indeed. last but not least there's the superspacious six senses spa, offering its full range of soothing signature treatments to both guests and non-residents alike. kuwait has finally got a stylish place for you to stay. location: symphony centre, arabian gulf road [salmiya].
