Kuwait-based Alshaya Group has revealed that development of Canopy by Hilton, which will be located on the Arabian Gulf Street in Kuwait’s Bneid Al-Gar area, is imminent, with the group planning to open the hotel in late-2022.

The design of Canopy by Hilton hotels are inspired by local neighbourhoods. They also feature open flowing spaces.

Speaking about the project, president for the Middle East, Africa, and Turkey at Hilton, Rudi Jagersbacher, said: “Canopy by Hilton responds to a growing customer preference for upscale hotels that fit authentically into local neighbourhoods and cultures.”

In July 2019, Alshaya Group announced that it is planning to bring 70 Hampton by Hilton hotels to its operating markets in MENA, Turkey, and Russia. Meanwhile, Kuwait’s first Hampton by Hilton, which is located in Salmiya, is expected to open in late 2021.
