Le Meridien introduces second phase of Kuwait expansion

Yaghi ... ambitious

FOLLOWING the rebranding of Le Meridien Kuwait this year, the luxury hotel group will introduce the second phase of its four-project expansion in the country with the opening of the 70-room Le Meridien Tower Kuwait at the end of the month.

The hotel marks the debut of Le Meridien’s innovative Art+Tech design in the region, and forms part of an aggressive development strategy in the country – which will create almost 420 new rooms across four projects by 2006.
Le Meridien’s development in Kuwait is the result of a newly-established owning relationship with A’Amal Holding Company. Ahmed Al Abdaly, chairman of A’Amal Holding Company, said: “These four projects – which include the refurbishment and rebranding of the former Ritz Hotel – will change the face of Kuwait’s hospitality structure.” The upcoming 70-room city boutique hotel, Le Meridien Tower, will be followed by a second, 70-unit Art+Tech hotel in the Mubarakia district.
According to country general manager Hannes Yaghi, the contemporary boutique style will be a first for the Middle East, offering customers’ cutting-edge technology and innovative room design.
