Step aboard Al Boom for a truly authentic nautical atmosphere. This dhow of the boom class made her maiden voyage from India to Kuwait twenty-five years ago. Since then, Al Boom has become a perennial favorite of both residents and visitors. Dinner is served in the hull of this hand built boat, which is in dry dock next to the hotel. Guests can choose top quality steaks and seafood or a combination of both is on offer. A sweet platter with delicate sweets, fruits, and pastries provides the perfect finale. Coffee and dates are served upstairs in the comfortable diwaniya with its fascinating collection of maritime memorabilia. The sloping wooden floors and the staff in their old-style Kuwaiti sailors’ costumes add to the unique ambience. To eat at Al Boom is to experience an important part of local heritage.
