KUWAIT CITY, KUWAIT
In time for Kuwait’s 50th anniversary of its independence from Britain, Hotel Missoni Kuwait (hotelmissoni.com) will open in February with 169 rooms, all overlooking the Arabian Gulf. Inspired by the Missoni fashion line, known for its multicolored patterns, the design is pegged to bold color — more than 85 different shades — including mosaic tiles laid out in Missoni’s signature zigzag stripes at the bottom of the swimming pool. Wares from restaurant china to beach towels were custom designed by Missoni for the hotel, its second, which will also host an Italian restaurant, an 18th-floor lounge serving global fare and a Six Senses Spa set to open in summer. Doubles from $320.
