Waldorf Astoria Kuwait offers a range of dining options. Opening this autumn is ROKA, the Japanese robatayaki restaurant. This cuisine concept originates from Japan’s northern coastal waters where the fishermen would cook fish on boats with different charcoals and share the food with one another using their oars.

AVA, the signature restaurant, showcases flavors from across the French Riviera, the south of Italy and the Greek islands. Guests can choose from sharing items like wood-fired pizzas, appetizers and salads, grills and desserts. The Parisian-influenced Peacock Alley offers specialty coffees and fresh meals, chocolates, macaroons and afternoon tea.

OXIO Pool and Lounge offers signature salads, sandwiches and homemade gelatos during the daytime hours. At night, the venue transforms into Kubbar Poolside Restaurant, named after Kuwait’s Kober Island, and offers Levant cuisine.

The 24-hour Technogym-equipped Fitness Centre includes a Fitness Studio offering a range of workout sessions.

For groups, Waldorf Astoria Kuwait offers a Grand Ballroom that can accommodate up to 720 guests, and five meeting rooms. An onsite team is also available to assist guests.
