Conveniently located in Fahaheel area, close to the state’s major oil and gas companies, the hotel is part of the Al Manshar shopping and entertainment complex in Fahaheel. It is situated 20 minutes away from Kuwait International Airport, 25 minutes from Kuwait City Centre and the major exhibition ground, and some 45 minutes away from Saudi border.
Two hundred luxurious rooms and suites are located in a 20-storey tower, all well-appointed and furnished to the highest specifications both for business and leisure. All offer stunning views of the Arabian Gulf and the city of Fahaheel, says a hotel spokesperson.
