Last week was our First Step In To Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa. Yesterday we were invited by Jumeriah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa management for a bloggers night tour event. Around 7.00pm, I’ve arrived to Jumeriah Messilah Beach Hotel. We were segmented into different groups for a tour all around the hotel.
Anyway, we started with the ballrooms, then hotel rooms, hotel restaurants/cafes, hotel swimming pool and finally outdoor dinner.
As we included recently the hotel got, 316 rooms and suites, 80 serviced apartments, 12 villas, 8 Restaurants (Garden Cafe, Olio, Mint, Salt, Pepper, Arabesque, Aqua, Tea Lounge) and more.
Through our tour we passed by different domestic areas in hotel such as:
Ballrooms: Badriya Ballroom is the largest ballroom in Kuwait. Decorated with Arabian classic theme as you see above. The ballroom can be booked as a wedding, conference, event and etc. Additionally, in the second floor of the ballroom there is an executive bridal suite, for the bride to use as a faciltity. The suite includes a full saloon tools, lounges and bed. As well the second floor has a 360 degree view for the bride to view the ballroom.
Rooms: There are more than 4 types of rooms. All rooms are fully furniture with high quality standards. Each room standards has different facilities and services.
Pepper Restaurant: One of the restaurant which I really liked as a decoration and atmosphere is Pepper Restaurant. Pepper Restaurant menu is only steaks with other additional dishes. The most really fabulous in this restaurant is the atmosphere and decoration.
Atmosphere: In overall, the hotel has a different atmosphere inside and outside. You really feel that you are not in Kuwait specially when you see the beach and swimming pool view at night.
Decoration: The decoration inside the hotel is really different compared to the other hotels locally. Everything small part of the hotel is made by hand, even the curtains are hand-drawn. The whole hotel design is mixed of classic, Arabian, Kuwaiti and Royal.
Activities: There are lots of things to do such as Spa, Tennis, Swimming and more.
Recommendations/Services/Dislike: Although the hotel is really huge and new. The entrance, security and parking area is really terrible. It took me 15 minutes waiting outside the gate waiting for the security to take in car by car. The road was totally closed and the cars are waiting to enter. The guard at the entrance informed me to park my car outside and cross the road and get into the hotel. Well, even the hotel is new they have to really fix their entrance and parking area.

At the end of our tour, we were invited to an extreme delicious BBQ dinner outdoor with an amazing view. However, the weather was really humid therefore we enjoyed the tour, outdoor dinner and gathering. We haven’t passed through the Villa’s and some of other areas in the hotel, as most of places are occupied and not ready. Jumeriah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa is still under soft-opening and will open officially in the first week of October 2013. There will be some improvements and adding up services to the hotel by end of this year.
I rate the hotel as 5 stars royal hotel 10/10 compared to other hotels locally.
