Messilah Beach Hotel to be revived in Kuwait

Jumeirah Group will reopen the Messilah Beach Hotel in Kuwait this spring after 40 years, rebranding the property as the Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa.

This is Jumeirah Group’s first property in the Gulf Region outside the United Arab Emirates, and it includes many aspects of Arabic architecture in a contemporary setting. Traditional oriel windows of Mashrabiya designs are a characteristic throughout the resort and are said to respect Kuwait’s rich heritage. Messilah is inspired by its location and its name is derived from the old Kuwaiti word, Massiyalah, where rain water gathers and flows into the sea. Water is a recurring aspect of this beachfront resort with streams, channels, fountains, pools and other water features. This theme is also reflected in the Talise spa which means “beautiful waters” in a Native American language.

According to Mark Griffiths, GM of the hotel, Kuwait’s new landmark will bring with it “an exciting set of new experiences interlaced with heritage and history.”

The Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa is part of Jumeirah Group, the Dubai-based luxury hospitality company.
