Kemal Sirtikirmizi, general manager of Waldorf Astoria Kuwait

Connected to The Avenues, the country’s largest retail, entertainment and lifestyle destination, Waldorf Astoria Kuwait made its official debut in August this year.

Just a 15-minute drive from Kuwait International airport, the property’s prime location offers guests convenient access to local attractions such as the Kuwait Opera House, Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Centre, and the Grand Mosque.

Our contemporary elegant facilities, sophisticated interior design, inspiring collection of artworks, and world-class dining venues make Waldorf Astoria Kuwait the ideal place to stay.

Inspired by the original Waldorf Astoria in New York, the Kuwait property is designed to embody luxury by Dubai-based architecture firm LW Design Group, making it a venue for both business and leisure. The interiors reflect a sense of contemporary elegance with classic Waldorf Astoria elements included such as The Clock and Peacock Alley.

Guests in the Ikaros Club rooms, Ikaros Club suites, Presidential suites or the Royal suite have access to The Ikaros Club. The Ikaros Club offers exclusive dining experiences including breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and complimentary beverages. Club members enjoy private check-in/check-out, a complimentary selection of international newspapers and magazines, a personalised concierge to provide travel assistance and help manage bookings and reservations across the city, as well as access to The Library, business centre and a private meeting room.

Waldorf Astoria Kuwait offers a range of culinary options, from fine dining and romantic dinners in our cabanas, to poolside refreshments and freshly-brewed coffee in our cosy café. Most notably, Roka is a robatayaki restaurant concept rooted in Japan’s fishing culture of cooking the catch on boats using charcoal and sharing it with other fishermen. Meanwhile, Ava will offer a relaxed experience with authentic Mediterranean fare using seasonal ingredients. In this laid-back yet stylish venue, expect the best of the French Riviera, the south of Italy, and the Greek Islands.

Guests are also invited to take a much-needed break and indulge in calming treatments offered at the Waldorf Astoria Spa. Allowing guests to fully relax and rejuvenate, we offer separate male and female spa areas, with private arrival and consultation lounges, as well as eight treatment rooms. The Suite provides private changing and bathroom facilities, a double treatment zone with the therapy performed on warmed water pillows or warmed quartz crystal for maximum relaxation, a lounging zone, a private hammam and a steam room. We also have three private relaxation rooms where guests can take advantage of our Idyllic Ambience Experience by Amra, alpha‑sphere sensory or pendulum motion relaxation experiences.

Owned by Mabanee, Waldorf Astoria Kuwait is an unrivalled destination for prestige and luxury. We look forward to welcoming you on your next trip to Kuwait.
