After sustaining serious damage during the Iraqi occupation (even doorknobs disappeared), the major hotels have reopened. High prices and tight security, however, have been the hallmarks of nearly every hotel in Kuwait since the war. Properties range from deluxe-style international resorts to medium-priced hotels. We recommend staying in the best property available. It is essential to confirm reservations—in writing—and to put down a deposit prior to arrival: Space is often overbooked.
