Kempinski for every occasion
The Kempinski Julai’a Hotel & Resort in Kuwait says that it is a venue for every occasion.
‘‘At the resort you may well be forgiven for wanting to just stretch out on the soft sandy beach, or by one of the resort’s three, beautiful swimming pools, and relax,’’ says a hotel spokesman. ‘‘After all there is nowhere in Kuwait better to soak up the sun and enjoy real peace and quiet amid softly swaying palms.
He continues: ‘‘On the other hand why just lay there when you could take a jet ski and bounce across the surf, jump on a bike and explore the sandy dunes of Julai’a, or challenge the family or your colleagues to a table tennis competition, a beach volleyball championship, a basketball tournament, a badminton game, a tug of war!
‘‘Getting the most out of the Kempinski Julai’a Hotel & Resort means having the opportunity to do whatever you like to do during your ‘down time’. Give your body a workout at one of our fitness or aerobics sessions, take a swimming lesson or try you hand at boxing. And if that all sounds too energetic you can always hit the Underground entertainment centre, where you can take a class in billiards or just chill out on the network and arcade games.’’
Water-sport lovers will be in paradise at the resort, he says. ‘‘Atop the waves too there is a host of fun to be had for whatever level of daredevil is in you. Jump on a jet ski, bounce along on the banana boat, crank up a kayak or try your hand at water-skiing. All are on offer, along with boat rides, doughnut tubes, patriot rides and more.
‘‘If you’re a land lover why not hire a buggy and enjoy weaving the desert in the surrounding area of the resort. You’ll be surprised at how much there is to discover including our cinema, health club, ayurvedic centre, private ladies’ pool and our four fantastic dining outlets: Seashell, Gazebo, Sama and Avenue, the hotel’s main restaurant which serves food throughout the day and offers culinary theme nights on Sundays (Far Eastern), Tuesdays (American) and Thursdays (Italian).’’
The resort’s fully-equipped banquet and conference halls make it the perfect destination for any company convention or get-away, he says. ‘‘With wireless internet access available throughout the resort and on the beach you can even stay in touch with the office between volleyball matches!’’
For business or pleasure the Kempinski Julai’a Hotel & Resort really does have it all, the spokesman says.
‘‘Bikes are available for hire in all sizes catering to the whole family and to compliment the wide range of grown-up fun there is a children’s playground and even a special children’s bathroom along with the Kids’ Club which will keep younger members of the family amused for hours with activities that include face painting, relay races, cooking lessons, aerobics and arts and crafts.
‘‘Even when the sun goes down the fun is only just beginning. As the gardens and the soft pink stones of the chalets come to life in the evening lights so too does Sama, the rooftop restaurant with its 360-degree views, where you can enjoy traditional Arabic food and shisha, and the resort campfire which guarantees the perfect wind down before you head off to the beautifully comfortable guestrooms and villas.
‘‘No matter what you are looking for, rest assured that it’s on offer at the Kempinski Julai’a Hotel & Resort. Come alone, come with the family or come with colleagues from work and we guarantee you an experience unlike anything you have previously experienced in Kuwait.
‘‘However you like to unwind, we’re ready – and, though you’d be surprised, you won’t be disappointed if all you do once you get here is stretch out on the beach and relax!’’
