hey everyone.

the messilah beach hotel will be managed by Rezidor SAS as The Regent Messilah Beach. Regent is their ultra-luxury brand, and its very similar to Four Seasons. it is scheduled to open by June 2007. when it opens, Rezidor SAS will have three projects in Kuwait: the 200-room Radisson SAS (under renovation), the 400-plus room Regent Messilah Beach, and the 200-room Hotel Missoni Kuwait (opening third quarter 2007).

Dubliner, where did you find the renderings and construction photographs? you mentioned that you got them from 'their website.' what is it? i'm obsessed with this resort and i can't wait for it's opening.

thank you.

Messilah Beach Hotel

Located on the Persian Gulf between the airport and Kuwait City, Regent Hotel Messilah Beach when completed will be a business hotel with five-star, resort amenities. Surrounded by a residential neighborhood to the north, a public water park/entertainment venue to the south, the Fahaeel Highway to the west and the Persian Gulf to the east, the design of the Regent Hotel both respects and responds to the context in which it is sited. Partially destroyed in the war, the existing hotel will be demolished and replaced with the new Regent Hotel that will maintain the open areas/oases created on the site after the war without altering the property's land use.

The design of the Regent Hotel Messilah Beach is articulated by the project's major programmatic elements: the hotel; serviced apartment suites; restaurant and retail facilities; the wedding hall and conference center; and the sports facility and beach club. The main entrance to the hotel will be accessed from an improved roadway that connects directly to the highway and the existing off-site parking to the north will be improved and shared with the mosque. The entire project is surrounded by a three meter high compound wall that both separates the project from its neighbors and creates a space within the hotel property that recalls traditional souks. The wall itself was inspired by the various forts indigenous to the Middle East and traditional / regional methods of organizing settlements and helps to order the master plan of the project. A sign tower located on the northwest corner of the property will be visible from all directions and both locates the hotel for travelers and serves as a water tower. In addition the sign tower acts as a counterpoint to the sculptural tower located at the end of the sea wall of the beach club.

Designed to embrace the local culture, Regent Hotel Messilah Beach features a 479-room, five-star hotel that is located on the southern edge of the property. Adjacent to the main hotel building that will include standard guest rooms, junior and senior suites, the royal suite and the owner's suite will be four restaurants, a lobby caf�and 400 square meters of retail space that face a lagoon and public promenade that leads to the beach club. A 2,205 square meter health club will be located below the lobby level of the hotel.

Located across the lushly landscaped public promenade that provides separated circulation for men and women to the beach club are the 83 suites comprised of 62 3-bedroom duplexes and 21 2-bedroom units. The suites will be serviced by the hotel and are located along the site's northern edge to best respond to the neighboring residential precinct. The suites are designed with private gardens to the north and to take advantage of views to the planted promenade.

The public wedding hall and conference facility is located on the northwestern portion of the site closest to the access road and will include a 12,000 square meters reception hall in addition to an 800 square meter dining hall. The facility will be leased for weddings, public functions, exhibitions, and car shows and will be surrounded by a conference center with twelve meeting rooms.

At the southeastern edge of the site, the project contains a secret garden which is adjacent to the beach club and marina that will be reclaimed from the sea. Clad in local Jordanian stone with variations in texture and finish, Regent Hotel Messilah Beach will serve both business and vacation travelers alike well into the next century.

hello.

wow. it's own thread. nice job, Dubliner.

as of now, The Regent Kuwait will be the only Regent in the Middle East. not surprisingly, a second one is being planned for Dubai, but the first will be in Kuwait by autumn 2007. the Dubai property is only being studied at the moment; there are no official estimates concerning the number of rooms, facilities, location, etc., so it's a VERY vague concept.

on a different note, the Kuwait property is shaping off to be a very good one. from the March 2006 construction update, it looks like they've almost reached the structural height of 22 meters on the main building. i'm guessing the height should be reached by summer this year, then they can finish the reclamation work on the beach and commence planting the property's vegetation. from then on, they can start work on the exterior cladding, interior work, and power allocation. i'm guessing that this will be Kuwait's best hotel when it opens next year; it's going to be unbelievable.

once again Dubliner, awesome job.
