Boasting breathtaking views across the Gulf, the iconic Italian fabric house stretches playful geometry and bolts of contrasting color throughout the interior, with the Hotel featuring key pieces from the MISSONI HOME COLLECTION, expertly melded with individual pieces personally selected by Rosita Missoni – iconic designs including the Hans Wagner-designed Wishbone Chair and Superarchimoon lamps by Philippe Starck.
Bold, passionate and fashionable, the interior fit-out is relaxed, and to quote Rosita Missoni “every piece of furniture is something I would choose for my home,” the resulting scheme awash with a beach-inspired palette and the brand’s trademark exuberant patterns, with rooms orientated to capitalise on the Salmiya seafront location, and the endless views of the Arabian coast.
Other MISSONI hotel sites are currently under construction include Oman, Brazil and the recently announced Antalya in Turkey, set to open in 2013 – where a 18-hole golf course to be designed by Swedish golf pro Annika Sorensta, the jewel in the Missoni Hotel Country Club club, to come complete with it’s own olive grove!
In the lead-up to the arrival of Hotel Missoni Kuwait, one of the regions most highly anticipated hotel developments in the Middle East, Missoni commissioned a series of five short films on YouTube, with the debut video appearing on Nowness.com. The film follows the many adventures of Missoni’s founders as they travel through famous sites across Europe and the Middle East, crossing land and sea aboard their Missoni hot air balloon.
The 18-storey hotel features 169 rooms and 63 suites, decked out with the latest Bang & Olufson, with guests able to convert their ‘magic mirror’ into a television at the flick of a switch!
