Four Seasons enters Kuwait taking forward its journey of luxury travel
Since the 1970s when Four Seasons started pioneering signature luxury services with the opening of its property in London, the brand has been breaking new ground with eyes on global expansion, but also on getting closer to patrons with their innovations in bespoke hospitality.
Early last month, Four Seasons founder and chairman Isadore Sharp stood next to Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, Prime Minister of Kuwait to open the grand Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya. The opening event marks an important milestone in the landscape of luxury hospitality of Kuwait – the importance of which was not lost to key dignitaries and business leaders who were present at the grand opening: Four Seasons president and CEO J. Allen Smith and executive chairman of Alshaya Group, Mohammed Alshaya. One of Middle East’s most successful business conglomerates, Alshaya are the owners of the property.
“The significance of the opening of Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya goes beyond our commitment to expanding our presence in the Middle East region. This magnificent property is a special celebration of the close relationship we share with our guests in the region who have come to deeply appreciate the Four Seasons experience for its personalised service, attention to detail and warm and welcoming care. We are humbled by the initial response to this property, which holds an important place in our growth story in the region,” said Allen Smith.
As the capital’s stylish new centrepiece, Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya is a desirable destination for dining, entertainment and relaxation for both business and leisure travellers as well as local guests. Visitors to the hotel will experience signature Four Seasons service across the hotel’s collection of 217 well-appointed guest rooms, 67 lavish suites as well as five exquisite restaurants that combine culinary influences from international trends with local tastes and traditions. Kuwaiti travellers, familiar with Four Seasons properties internationally, will have an opportunity to experience at home what they have come to know and love about Four Seasons – highly personalised service and attention to detail that is quintessentially Four Seasons.
Reflecting on the contribution of Four Seasons Kuwait at Burj Alshaya to Kuwait’s economy, Mohammed Alshaya commented: “World-class infrastructure and hospitality is the mark of a progressive city and we are delighted to support Kuwait’s 2035 Vision through our investment in this iconic development which reflects Alshaya’s commitment to Kuwait and to the growth of a vibrant private sector. This iconic hotel is a wonderful new addition to Kuwait’s hospitality offer and has redefined modern luxury.”
The Four Seasons food and beverage offerings are designed to attract local and international gourmands alike. A rooftop pan-Asian restaurant, open-kitchen Italian restaurant, sleek lobby lounge, and poolside restaurant are among the outlets that will win many fans in months and years to come.
