Our Tablet Spy program offers the chance to get early looks at the most promising new hotels. If you’re willing to take the risks associated with staying in a hotel that’s not officially open yet — unfinished spaces, noisy construction, inexperienced service — then you’ll be rewarded with the chance to help decide whether the finished hotel will earn a place on Tablet Hotels.
Like its big brother in Edinburgh and its soon-to-be-born siblings in Cape Town, Muscat and Bahia, the Hotel Missoni Kuwait projects the Italian fashion house’s glossy and riotously colorful aesthetic on to the ordinarily blank screen of a high-end luxury property. Lines zig and zag and dots are scrambled and jumbled in dizzying, joyful patterns. Bigger and bolder are the first two commandments — anything subtler and it’d risk being overshadowed by the dazzling views of the Gulf.
A design collaboration between the fashion house’s Rosita Missoni and the superstar architect Matteo Thun, the hotel anchors Kuwait City’s mixed-use Symphony Centre development. It’s part business, part terrycloth-by-the-pool, and it feels as though it belongs to a different century from the competition.
Conspicuously absent are any of the usual signs and signals of obvious Middle Easternness. The restaurants specialize in Mediterranean fare and the Six Senses Spa is based around Chinese moxibustion therapy and cupping massage. Still, you’ll have little difficulty remembering where you are — especially when you’re looking for a drink, or when you and your traveling companion are asked to produce “proof of marriage.”
That hurdle cleared, you’ll find the rooms as picturesque as they come. Dramatic sea views are framed by Missoni’s trademark vibrant colors. The appeal goes beyond the visual, however: the fixtures and furnishings are carefully chosen, and the walk-in rain showers are stocked with top-shelf product. And if you happen to be traveling without your spouse or significant other, she or he will likely derive some comfort from the proof-of-marriage rule, as this is the sort of environment that could tempt a person to misbehave.
