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 energizing 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.
