Hilton Kuwait Resort opens new Royal Marquee

Hilton Kuwait Resort launched its new Royal Marquee at a dinner reception attended by the Dutch and Canadian ambassadors to Kuwait and local VIPs for the Chaine des Rotisseurs gastronomy association.
Kuwait members of the Chaine des Rotisseurs, an association that brings together over 25,000 enthusiasts globally who share the same values of quality, fine dining and love of culinary art, gathered at Hilton Kuwait Resort’s new Royal Marquee last week to enjoy a seven-course menu. The cuisine was especially prepared for the event by Abdul Kader Yamout, executive chef, to reflect the wonderfully varied Arabian cuisine and hospitality for which Kuwait is known.
Located on the property’s private beach, Hilton Kuwait Resort is the only five-star resort in Kuwait to offer a Royal Marquee with a host of exceptional facilities and service offerings.
Ziad Tantawi, GM, Hilton Kuwait Resort, said: "It is an honor to host the Dutch and Canadian ambassadors, our local VIPS and the celebrated Chaine des Rotisseurs association at our new Royal Marquee. This 700 sqm venue caters up to 550 people and provides an ideal location for exclusive dinners and events. Hilton Kuwait Resort specializes in providing outstanding service for every occasion and we very much look forward to welcoming our future guests.”
Mohamed Najia, president of the Chaine des Rotisseurs in Kuwait, expressed his appreciation and gratitude for the excellent services provided during the dinner; “The new Royal Marquee at Hilton Kuwait Resort was not only a stunning location for our annual event, but the team also provided the world-class dining experience that our members have come to expect.”

LuLu stores in Saudi Arabia launch Indian food festival

  • The week-long event, in celebration of India’s Independence Day, features about 2,000 products

LuLu Hypermarkets is celebrating India’s Independence Day, which falls on Aug. 15, with an Indian-themed food festival across its stores in Saudi Arabia.

The week-long promotion, which continues until Aug. 18, features about 2,000 Indian products, including organic groceries, fresh foods, ethnic delicacies and desserts.

“We are trying to showcase the versatility and diversity of Indian food products handpicked by our well-spread supply chain in India and across the world,” said Shehim Mohammed, director of LuLu Hypermarkets Saudi Arabia.

The proximity of India to the Kingdom means that more fresh products arrive regularly, he added, most of which are flown in to maintain their freshness “as we move closer to a farm-to-fork concept in (the Kingdom), featuring both locally and internationally sourced ranges.”

As Saudi Arabia gears up for the start of the new school term, LuLu has also launched its back-to-school promotions.
