The First Photos of the Missoni Hotel Kuwait, Opening Tomorrow
Tomorrow in Kuwait City, the second-ever Hotel Missoni will open its doors, almost two years after the original wowed with its masterfully clashing interiors in Edinburgh, Scotland. Like Edinburgh, the Kuwait hotel will be filled to the brim with objects from the Italian Missoni fashion brand, everything from the coffee cups from which you drink to the decorative pillows you toss off your bed at night. And it's going to have complimentary Maserati chauffeur service from the airport, too. Hellowhen can we check in?
Unfortunately for us, the hotel is in Kuwait, which isn't a destination we get around to very much. Edinburgh is a far easier jaunt, but to allay our curiosity, the Missoni has been kind enough to send along some sneak peek, pre-opening snapshots of the lobby, rooms and other public areas. And of course the gold leather sofas...
It seems their online booking form is experiencing some issues right now, but we were able to check opening rates for March back in January, and found rooms starting at $450, though "there's a 20% off Advance Booking rate still in effect that brings it down to $361 per night." We doubt that discount will work for March stays, but worth checking out for summer stays and beyond when the online booking is back up.
Dang. Just looking at these pictures...makes us want to skip around through all the rooms. Kuwait may find itself added to our "must visit" list. For now, however, you can check out our first-hand review and photo gallery of room at the Hotel Missoni Edinburgh, as well as the public areas.
