Two years after Italian fashion house Missioni opened their first hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland, they are finally celebrating the opening of another one in the Middle East, in Kuwait to be exact.
It comes with a few luxury features we kind of love – the little things that we hate forking out for at hotels because we have yet to win the lottery. Firstly there are the 169 sea-facing rooms and then the breakfast, laundry, high-speed wireless internet, free local calls, movies on demand and a stocked minibar that’s all included with the cost of the room! In case you’re wondering, rooms start at approximately US$419 to US$1,540 a night. But that comes with access to the state of the art gym, steam room, sauna and a Missoni stripped swimming pool.
Looking at the photos (see the full gallery below) we kind of love the oversized urns (or vases?) outside the hotel, the colourful interiors and the spectacular ballroom. Unlike the Scotland hotel, the Hotel Missoni Kuwait has the added bonus of being in a very sunny location and that’s reflected in the lightness of the rooms with the gold reflective pattern in the décor created exclusively for the Kuwait hotel,
The official celebrations are being held today with Rosita Missoni in attendance with her daughter Angela and granddaughter Teresa also representing the family – almost 3 months after the hotel opened for business.
Missoni plan to open more hotels in Oman, Brazil and Turkey in the next few years in their collaboration with the Rezidor Hotel Group.
“The Middle East is a key market for us in terms of development; Hotel Missoni Kuwait is a wonderful addition to the growing Rezidor portfolio. We have a long history here so it seems fitting that our first Hotel Missoni in the Middle East should open in this location. We are committed to the long term development of this brand and will continue to focus on opening in key cities and beach front locations,” said Kurt Ritter, President and CEO of Rezidor Hotel Group.
So who’s up for a trip to Kuwait to stay at the Missoni Hotel?
