Alshaya Group announced plans to bring the Canopy by Hilton hotel brand to Kuwait, offering locals and visitors alike a fresh guest experience. Canopy by Hilton Kuwait will be located on Arabian Gulf Street in the popular Bneid Al-Gar area, and guests will enjoy stunning views of the Gulf and benefit from easy access to downtown Kuwait City. Development of the hotel will start shortly, with the opening planned for late 2022.
Canopy by Hilton hotels are inspired by their surroundings and feature open flowing spaces, abundant natural light and design cues from the local neighbourhood. “Canopy by Hilton responds to a growing customer preference for upscale hotels that fit authentically into local neighbourhoods and cultures,” said Rudi Jagersbacher, President – Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Hilton. “We can tick all the boxes with our plans to bring the brand to Kuwait – with a great location in a great neighbourhood, and a trusted partner in Alshaya Group.”
Commenting on the announcement, James Tynan, President of Hospitality at Alshaya Group said, “Canopy by Hilton is an exciting young hotel brand which is already attracting international attention for its unique guest offerings. We think the brand is a perfect fit for the Kuwait market and look forward to welcoming guests when our doors open in 2022”.
