Iftar at Luna Lounge & Restaurant ~ Missoni Hotel Kuwait

Y'all don't laugh at my camera phone pictures. We had a great time. :)

Their fried shrimp would make Bubba Gump move to Kuwait. Delicious!!!

I didn't ask for this but the sweet waiter kept bringing us food to try. Their stir-fry is one of the best in Kuwait.







Luna Lounge & Restaurant is located on the 18th floor of the Missoni Hotel.  To quote their brochure: "Under the moonlit sky and the brilliance of the night, we welcome you to Hotel Missoni, in celebration of the holy month of Ramadan." 

Part of their charm is the modern Arabic lounge and restaurant which features a mocktail bar, coffee bar and outdoor terrace, all with amazing views of the Arabian Gulf.  They are open from 12pm to 12am daily.

We went to Luna on the second night of our stay and had a wonderful time.  The price was 15kd which was all inclusive. Since I am not a buffet person the waiter assisted me by fixing most of my plates.  I tried a lot of typical Kuwaiti food because the waiter kept bringing us giant plates of food.  Everything I tried was delicious and by far the best quality buffet in Kuwait.  .  

I'm glad we went and I would definitely go back to both restaurants at the Missoni.  Staying at the hotel made dining there extra special.

Iftar at Cucina ~ Missoni Hotel Kuwait

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Cucina is an Italian restaurant serving classic seasonal Italian Cuisine. The restaurant is located on the 1st floor of the Missoni Hotel. They are open for breakfast from 6am to 11am. Lunch is served from 12:30pm to 3:30pm. Open for dinner from 7pm to 11:30pm.

The Cucina Iftar buffet during Ramadan was priced at 15KD. The chef and most of the staff were Italian. I'm not a fan of buffets but the food was delicious. They had a nice selection and the dishes were fresh and warm. The servers were mostly trainees from Italy but they did a good job waiting on our table.

I look forward to trying Cucina’s À la carte dishes the next time we stay at the Missoni. We were there the weekend before last and both Missoni restaurants only offered a buffet.  This is customary during the Holy month of Ramadan.

All shots were taken by a camera phone so I apologize for their blurry appearance. I promise to bring my camera next time, inshallah.

Thank you Ms. R :*

 

Jr. Suite Master Bedroom and Bathroom ~ Missoni Hotel Kuwait

 
To purchase the set of 2 Missoni espresso cups in your suite it will cost you 50Kd. I suggest you spend that money at their spa. :P
 
Small sitting area overlooking the Arabian Gulf inside the bedroom.
 
A pink master bathroom with television access. <3

Pink Toilet Paper! <3
 
Bring your own conditioner because theirs is really bad.
 
 
My bed was so soft and lovely.

My next posts will cover dinning for Iftar at Luna, room service and the main room of the Jr. Suite. The view of the city skyline and the Arabian Gulf is spectacular.

Loving Six Senses Spa at the Missoni Hotel in Kuwait


The Missoni Hotel's pool was closed for the entire month of Ramadan.

 
You have to walk outside by the pool to get to the Six Senses Spa.

 
I really wanted to swim inside their giant pool but inshallah I will get to soon.

The front door to Six Senses Spa. With the pool to the left and some sort of statue (I don't remember) reflecting in the window to the right.

 
My treatment room where I had an 80 minute De-Stress Massage - 40 KD
Followed by a Purifying/Soothing Facial - 45 KD 

 
This is where you relax and wait for your therapist while drinking their special Six Senses water.

 
The spa is very quiet and they take extra special care of you.

 
Even the ceiling has heavenly stars that create a calm atmosphere.

 


The spa attendant waited with me while my therapists were arranging my room.

The weekend before last I decided to stay at the Missoni Hotel with some of my friends.  Due to a particular law here we ran into a little difficulty.  Thanks to my friend R and M everything worked out just fine.  Thank you ladies!

We wanted to try out the Six Senses Spa and experience their hotel.  The pool was closed for Ramadan but the spa was open the entire day.  I didn’t go there to review the hotel but I wanted to post about my positive experience staying there.  I’m sorry about the poor quality of the cell phone shots but I was too busy enjoying my time to worry about carrying my camera.  

When you first arrive to the second floor of the hotel, take a left and walk outside the door to the pool area.  You will see the Six Senses entrance door.  Once you walk inside their staff is waiting to greet you.  If you are a first time visitor they will ask you to fill out some forms.  I was given a cup of their special water while I began to relax.

The spa attendant will walk you to the ladies area where she will give you a tour of their facilities. After changing into your robe you sit and wait on their plush sofa for your therapist to arrive.  Minutes later you are escorted to your room and then the Princess treatment begins.

After the two treatments I returned to my suite to shower and lay down in their amazing bed.  That night we ate at Luna’s on the 18th floor and planned our next stay.  I loved the spa and plan on making the Six Senses a permanent fixture on my calendar.
