Brussels-based Rezidor Hotel Group will open the first two properties developed in collaboration with Italian luxury fashion house Missoni in early 2009 in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Kuwait City.
The Edinburgh and Kuwait properties will become the first city-centre and resort hotels within the Hotel Missoni portfolio, which will see 30 properties open or under development globally within 10 years. The initial development focus will be on Europe and the Middle East, but will expand to North America, South America and Asia.
Hotel Missoni Edinburgh, located on George IV Street along the Royal Mile, will feature 136 bedrooms and suites.
Located at the Symphony Complex, a new hotel and shopping development set on the waterfront, Hotel Missoni Kuwait will offer 200 guestrooms, all with views of the Arabian Gulf.
