“Perfect Hotel for SHORT or LONG stays ....!!!”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

When I first arrived to Kuwait, I was looking for a hotel that can accommodate both my short stays and long stays depending on my work. I travel to Kuwait every week, at first I was staying at Movenpick Shuwaike at the free trade zone, Crown Plaza, Holiday in … until I found out that there is another Movenpick in Salmiya. I went to check the place and it was quiet surprising. So I moved the same day to the hotel, they have various room types and can facilitate long stay guests with kitchenette facilities and food & beverage discounts for the long stay (more than 21 days).

Hotel is 5 star resort and have around 306 rooms and the best things about it that they are spread around in lush gardens and pools (they have 5 separate pools around the hotel) the beach is amazing they have 200 meters of private beach. They do not advice the guest to swim in the sea due to some pollution but it’s the same situation at any beach in Kuwait. So I cannot blame or complain the hotel about that but some people do swim.

Staff is very friendly, they try to help you and make you feel comfortable, free internet, free parking, complimentary breakfast included in my room rate, complimentary airport pick up and drop was provided to me so make sure you ask for it. They have nice underground gym, cute boutique spa, for dining they have 2 restaurants inside the hotel and have 3 terrace overlooking the sea offering shisa’s which is a must to try. Apart from it, they have around 25 restaurants and café outlets right in front of the hotel. So do not have to drive which is great especially in Kuwait where the traffic is a nightmare any give day. To name a few they have starbucks, chills, costas café, Indian restaurant, TGI Fridays, pinkberry, pizza express, prime toast, Lebanese’s and more …. In the evenings, it’s the most happening place…. All the Kuwait’s come with their crazy cars and bikes.

So this hotel all together it is a perfect option for my stay and I am more than happy to recommend to any one with out a doubt. i am coming back next week for 1 month stay Get in touch with the sales and marketing people they can hook you with good deals. Ask for Sunil in sales he is my contact.

Stayed for a month Nov-Dec 2011. Had a great semi-apartment, very nice room. The hotel is on the beach, but the pools are better. The gym is nice, a bit hard to get to, but clean and modern.

The restaurants surrounding the hotel are good and very convenient, but they also attract a LOT of young Kuwaitis and all of their baggage- loud cars, music, and arrogance.

The restaurants in the hotel were very good, great breakfast and great dinner. The hotel is easy to drive to/from anywhere, they offer car rentals, and have security screening at the entrances for vehicles and people.

I enjoyed my stay there very much and the staff were always helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Anything adjacent to the main parking lot would be fine.

This resort is located quite a way from anywhere, and the fact that the beach has been closed for quite some time makes its location on a beach irrelevant.

The rooms are pleasant enough and do contain a kitchenette which is always a nice touch. The restaurants are nothing to write home about but are okay.

If I had to go back to Kuwait I'd happily stay at this Movenpick.

As a frequent traveler, I have stayed at many hotels over the last 10 years and I rarely write a review because, truthfully, most of my hotel experiences have been just fine and utterly forgettable.
Mövenpick hotel in Kuwait offered, by far, the best customer service I have ever encountered. From check in to check out my experience at this hotel have been perfect. I would like to express a huge THANK YOU to the entire staff whose names I did not take. It is people who make an experience and mine was terrific.
As for the physical aspects of the hotel, the lobby is very nice, looking to the sea. Aside from the hotel’s restaurants, just steps away from the hotel, there is a strip where you can find a variety of restaurants, including an amazing Starbucks. My room was very clean and spacious. The bed and even the couch were very comfortable. I actually fell asleep on the couch on my second night there because I was exhausted when I arrived late. Hotel has private cars to take you to the airport for only 5 Kuwaitie Dinars. Overall my experience has been wonderful. I will be visiting this hotel again
