Alshaya Group to bring Canopy by Hilton to Kuwait

Monday, December 16, 2019

Alshaya Group, a leading international franchise operator, this week 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.

Located in some of the most desirable neighbourhoods across the globe, Canopy by Hilton is an upper-upscale lifestyle hotel brand. Each Canopy by Hilton property is designed as a natural extension of its neighbourhood and delivers a fresh approach to hospitality and the guest experience, providing a place to relax and recharge with comfortable spaces, an energising atmosphere and thoughtfully local choices. 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, Hilton President Middle East, Africa and Turkey. “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 offering. We think the brand is a perfect fit for the Kuwait market and look forward to welcoming guests when our doors open in 2022."

The announcement further strengthens the choice of Hilton brands that Alshaya Group will offer to customers through a growing partnership with Hilton. Alshaya recently announced a master development agreement to bring 70 Hampton by Hilton hotels to its operating markets in Mena, Turkey and Russia. Kuwait’s first Hampton by Hilton, located in Salmiya, is expected to open in late 2021.
