The other day, I was invited on a private tour of Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa, Kuwait’s latest lavish beachfront 5-star hotel that is set to open this month. I didn't realize how grand and massively huge the hotel is until I stepped inside. The hotel, which occupied approximately 32,516 m2, is located in the secluded area of the Messilah Beach, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It features over 300 rooms and suites, 80 serviced apartments, these will include three bedrooms, two bedrooms, one bedroom units, and duplex suites, and 12 unique seaside villas.
The hotel also offers six distinguished restaurants and lounges, a Talise spa, 200-metre private beach, swimming pool and children’s play area, in addition to extensive conference and banqueting facilities.
The large ballroom, often refered to as the Wedding Ballroom, can comfortably fit over 1,500 seated guests, which means it can fit over 2,000 guests if you plan to have bleachers. This is arguably the biggest wedding ballroom in Kuwait. And it comes with many breakout rooms in case your guest list is small. You can also host a business meeting or simply unwind and indulge at the hotel's exclusive Club Lounge.

This is one of the 6 restaurants/lounges available at the hotel. If my memory serves me right this one is called Arabesque. The marble effect and shade at this Kuwaiti-themed is stunning. Notice the flying birds as part of the marble-covered walls?
The Garden Cafe is part of the Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa's lobby
This is Salt, and it's a sea-food restaurant. Doesn't the bubble-shaped chandeliers give the effect of floating salt?
And now on to Pepper, which is a Premier Steakhouse Restaurant. I loved the interior of Pepper. It felt so out of this world. Check out the chandelier shown below and the laser effect floor in the photo above.
I love the fact that the hotel is surrounded with lush gardens, you really feel like you're in a vacation somewhere outside of Kuwait.
The hotel has 3 huuuuge pools. One is 1.9m deep, the infinity pool is 1.5m deep, and the kiddie pool is decorated with colorful water fountains and play area.
The villas are overlooking the pool
And now a quick look at the fully-furnished villas, which has 5 masterbedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a maid's room, a private parking space, a private pool, and two huge balconies.
The ballroom, check out the details of the cling in the photo below.
One of my favorite multi-purpose rooms in the hotel, called The Reef. The room is entirely covered with tiny colored stones, natural stones, and colored marble. It's so magical, you feel as if you're diving in the deep of the red sea. The room can be used for corporate launches, business events, small wedding or a party.
The view from the presidential suit is simply breathtaking
