Kuwait Towers, Kuwait City

3.8
The city's signature landmark and the nation's most recognizable symbols, Kuwait Towers offer 360-degree views of the city and the Gulf. The three towers--with characteristic blue-green spheres covered with more than 41,000 enameled discs--were constructed during the 1970s. Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed chose the design, which resembles a tiled dome of a mosque. The highest tower rises 187 m (614 ft) above the ground, featuring observation decks on two levels, plus a revolving restaurant and a cafe. In March 2016, the towers opened to the public after a major four-year refurbishment process.

  • The Kuwait Towers delightfully suggest a combination of traditional Islamic design and modern architectural themes, with comparisons being made to blue-tiled mosques and slender minarets of Samarkand and Bukhara. The easy visibility and popularity of the towers with photographers is also due to the fact that there are no other high rise buildings in the general area of the Kuwait Towers. Ever since the official inauguration of the towers, they have come to signify the prosperity and opulence that has boosted this previously sleepy backwater country into the world’s tenth richest country per capita.
  • Spent a great afternoon dining in the horizon restaurant. The lunch buffet had a great variety of food from worldwide cuisines. The ambiance of the restaurant is quite and chill after enjoying your meal you can use the restaurant receipt to go to the top of the tower where you can view the city of Kuwait along with the coast in a revolving ground a coffee shop and standing tables.
  • Beautiful towers that are spectacular at night. The view from the rotating observation deck is very nice, unfortunately, the windows are in bad need of repair and so is hard to get good photographs from up there. The gift shop is quite underwhelming with the same merchandise being repeated throughout the shop. Definitely worth a visit. Please click the thumbs up of you liked the review.
  • Great breakfast buffet, go early (opens 8am) for peace and quiet. Staff are friendly and cost is reasonable. Keep the receipt to visit the viewing dome for no extra charge.
  • OMG. I have never seen anything like it. So beautiful. The atmosphere was like no other. Top notch and friendly service. Food was superb. Love it best restaurant ever.
