Entering the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya, eyes are immediately drawn to the dramatic staircase, spiralling 13 metres (43 feet) up through the soaring lobby, appearing to defy gravity as it makes its way toward the sky.
“Our own ‘stairway to heaven’ is quickly becoming the symbol of Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait, and indeed it reflects the optimism one feels in this dynamic city,” notes General Manager Didier Jardin on the occasion of the Hotel’s opening day.
Located within the new, two-tower Burj Alshaya development – the stylish new centrepiece of Kuwait City – Four Seasons is ideally situated for business and leisure travellers visiting the city, as well as local guests to dine, entertain and relax. Indeed, with 2,912 square metres (31,349 square feet) of beautifully-appointed event spaceshosting up to 1,200 guests, Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait already has many important business meetings and social events on the calendar.
With 217 guest rooms plus 67 lavish suites, Four Seasons easily transforms for each individual guest, whether in the city to do business, enjoy an urban getaway for two, or with the whole family for a holiday filled with shopping, sightseeing and playing in the outdoor pool. Four dining venues – plus a fifth opening in September – showcase the creations of international culinary talent while celebrating local tastes and traditions. A two-level spa complex hosts innovative treatments as well as a state-of-the-art fitness centre and second swimming pool.
Conceived by Gensler architects and designed by Yabu Pushelberg, Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait easily stands among the most striking hotels in the world, and yet it is distinctly Kuwaiti in style and ambiance.
A palette of warm colours and refined textures comes together in sophisticated spaces dressed with bespoke furnishings and original artworks. One such piece is the remarkable sculpture by British artist Marc Quinn, known for his ability to physically and aesthetically capture the exquisite forms of flowers. His Etymology of the Baroque in the Hotel’s lobby depicts a white orchid at the height of its bloom in a way both startlingly real and fantastical at the same time.
In the Hotel’s 284 guest rooms and suites, residential-style decoration and furnishings conceal myriad thoughtful touches and high-tech conveniences that allow guests to effortlessly create their own quiet hideaway, high-performance workspace or family home-away-from-home. Views in all directions take in the glittering skyline, and to the east, Al Shaheed Park, the largest urban park in the country. Many suites are easily expanded for larger parties or entertaining, including the fabulous top-floor Royal Suite, the largest in the city. To find out more and book your upcoming stay click here.
