Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Jumeirah Group, the global lux­ury ho­tel com­pany, held the first of its an­nual regional Road­show events at Jumeirah Mes­si­lah Ho­tel and Spa in Kuwait, with the next stops in Riyadh, Jed­dah and fi­nally Doha. The Kuwait Road­show event took place on Sun­day 13 Novem­ber, wel­com­ing over 300 spe­cial­ists in the travel trade in­dus­try, in­clud­ing tourism, ho­tels, tour op­er­a­tors, and travel agents as well as the Group's prom­i­nent clients and media rep­re­sen­ta­tives. The Group re­vealed its lat­est growth and ex­pan­sion de­vel­op­ments in­ter­na­tion­ally, high­light­ing re­cently in­au­gu­rated ho­tels, re­sorts and new fa­cil­i­ties world­wide­which draw Kuwaiti tourists.

Jad Doumet, Di­rec­tor of Global Sales at Jumeirah Group said: "We de­cided to com­mence our regional road­show with Kuwait given the im­por­tance of this mar­ket for the Group. Kuwait is among the top five markets with tourists vis­it­ing Jumeirah Group's ho­tels around the world. In ad­di­tion, it also con­trib­utes to the growth of our Group's busi­ness through book­ings at Jumeirah Mes­si­lah Beach Ho­tel and Spa in Kuwait in light of the in­creased traf­fic to Kuwait, es­pe­cially from around the GCC."

"What dis­tin­guishes Jumeirah Group is its ho­tels and lux­ury re­sorts that of­fer unique ex­pe­ri­ences across three con­ti­nents, which is what we have fo­cused on through the event. The United Arab Emi­rates is one of the main des­ti­na­tions for vis­i­tors from Kuwait how­ever, our ho­tels in other cities have marked an in­crease in Kuwaiti guests as well. The ho­tels in­clude the Jumeirah Bil­gah Beach Ho­tel in Baku, Azer­bai­jan, as well as Jumeirah Dhe­vana­fushi and Jumeirah Vit­taveli Re­sorts in the Mal­dives. The Mal­dives Vit­taveli re­cently launched the Royal villa which in­cludes five bed­rooms, spe­cially de­signed to meet guests' needs from Kuwait and the Gulf due to the pri­vacy and lux­ury it of­fers," he added.

With re­gards to ex­pan­sion plans, Doumet ex­plained: "The Group cur­rently man­ages 5,500 ho­tel rooms across 21 ho­tels and re­sorts in 10 dif­fer­ent des­ti­na­tions. We aim to open 25 new fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing 10 new ho­tels and re­sorts planned to open be­tween 2017 and 2019. In ad­di­tion, we will be up­grad­ing and ex­pand­ing fa­cil­i­ties to en­sure we at­tract new trav­el­ers and con­tinue to pro­vide ex­cep­tional ex­pe­ri­ences to our guests, such as the open­ing of the Burj Al-Arab Ter­race, which has al­ready be­gun to at­tract tourists from across the GCC and from Kuwait in par­tic­u­lar."

The new­est ad­di­tion to the Jumeirah port­fo­lio was high­lighted dur­ing the event, Jumeirah Al-Naseem in Dubai. The ho­tel name is in­spired by the breeze of fresh air (which is Naseem in Ara­bic). Lo­cated across from Burj Al-Arab on the long­est stretch of pri­vate beach in the city, the ho­tel boasts 430 lux­u­ri­ous rooms and suites. It is sched­uled to open on De­cem­ber 1, 2016 pre­sent­ing its guests with the finest ex­pe­ri­ences in Mad­i­nat Jumeirah. It in­cludes more than 10 restau­rants and cafes, a pri­vate beach club as well as parks and green spa­ces.

Jumeirah Mes­si­lah Beach Ho­tel and Spa com­prises seven restau­rants and mod­ern hall­ways, Talise Spa, in ad­di­tion to beau­ti­ful beaches, which make it a lux­u­ri­ous and fa­vorite des­ti­na­tion for trav­el­ers from the UAE, KSA and the Gulf re­gion.
