Start the year with a punch and end it with a kick. Which is why the best place to be when the clock strikes midnight to wave goodbye to 2018 and usher in 2019 is the Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya.
Here at bazaar, we’re eclectic when it comes to our taste and can appreciate everything but when it comes down to special occasions, we like to go all the way and do things with style and panache. And no one does sophisticated elegance best like the Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya.
Let the Festivities Begin!
On the 31st of December, you have four amazing restaurants to choose from to gather with your closest friends and loved ones to ring in the New Year. We love that some of these delicious concepts offer private dining arrangements if you want a more intimate setting, as well as a variety of different packages to choose from.
You don’t even have to wait until the last day of the year to get the party started. Al Soor Lounge, the sleek contemporary lounge will be offering a large variety of chocolate-based creations that will delight anyone with a sweet-tooth. Lucio Colombo, the Executive Pastry Chef, promises us pralines, chocolate blocks, a chocolate fountain and so much more.
Or enjoy the exclusive French tea selection by Damman Freres, renowned for their bespoke tea flavors, throughout the day. bazaar tip: It’s the perfect location for a quick business meeting or catching up with friends too.

Enjoy an Asian-inspired dinner and nibble on the most delicious sushi creations from the dedicated sushi counter at Sintoho Restaurant. There are three different packages to choose from but all of them include a five course family-style set menu, an indulgent dessert buffet, complete with a chocolate factory and a curated fruit and berry garden and festive giveaways.
The packages start at KD 65 per person where you would be seated by the entertaining Teppanyaki station.
For KD 80 you can make sure you get a table in the most desirable seating area of the restaurant bathed under high ceilings complete with free-flowing drinks and fancy mocktails.
For KD 100 you get all of the aforementioned benefits plus you get front row window seats for the most dazzling Kuwait City views from Sintoho Restauarnt and a bottle of Gold Emotion Sparkling drink for every two guests.
But everyone gets to enjoy the same amazing meal and lively joyful vibes. Dress your best, as the stylish Sintoho will be going all out with festive table decorations, live entertainment and a countdown till midnight with the most exciting balloon drop.
If you’re craving some pizza and delectable Italian fare for New Year’s Eve, the large wood-fired oven at the Italian Dai Forni Restaurant lends the space an authentic and cozy feeling that warms the soul with excitement for the New Year to begin. The impressively planned five- course menu includes a selection of sharing starters, a transitional course, followed by a seafood main, beef main and last but definitely not least, dessert.
The best part? All of Dai Forni Restaurant will be decked out in the finest New Year’s Eve fare, with decorations, live entertainment, giveaways and a perfectly timed balloon drop celebration at midnight.
Dai Forni Restaurant is a gorgeous space and while all tables are equally beautiful, packages start at KD 80 per person.
If you decide on the KD 100 package per person you get seated in the high-ceiling area and an unlimited supply of all types of drinks.
But to be honest, we go for the food and stay for the view and the KD 150 per person package ensures that you and your guests enjoy a mind- blowing view, unlimited drinks and one bottle of Gold Emotion Sparkling drink for every two people.
The wild-at-heart will love chilling al fresco at the terraced Al Bandar Lounge. Imagine being transported to a resort in the heart of Kuwait City, with an outdoor pool, shisha options that you will love and late-night gathering vibes.
There is the added benefit that you don’t need to make a reservation, just show up early enough because it does fill up really quickly.
Packages here are priced at KD 30 per person and are complete with an exciting tower of tapas to munch on for your starter, delicious surf and turf that’s freshly grilled to your liking, and dessert to share.
But perhaps what excites us most at Al Bandar Lounge are their Cabanas that are perfect to share with friends for New Year’s Eve.
The Al Bandar Cabana package at KD 150 per person promises a completely festive experience that begins with a five-course feast for a menu, including sharing starters, a middle course, seafood main, beef main, as well as dessert. You get unlimited soft drinks, juices and one bottle of Gold Emotion Sparkling drinks for every two guests.
The pampering doesn’t stop there, as you also get your own private butler service, your Cabana decked out in complete New Year’s Eve party decorations with glitzy gold balloons and fun merrymaking props, giveaways, festive live entertainment brought right to your own Cabana and a Gift away box of 30, beautiful roses with personalized menu signed by the hotel’s Executive Chef.
The decadent Elements Restaurant is also an enticing option. We love our nigiri and our antipasti, and Elements Restaurant will be celebrating the New Year with live entertainment and a global cuisine offering, buffet style. Why limit yourself to one kind of cuisine when you can have them all!
For KD 50 per person at Elements Restaurant, you’ll be entertained by the food experience at the live stations at the buffet, put a festive hat on from the impressive selection of party favors and giveaways, and enjoy a free-flowing selection of refined mocktails and soft drinks.
You might want to upgrade to the KD 70 per person package, especially if you’re taking a special someone for the premium selection of party favors and the bottle of Gold Emotion Sparkling.
All of the restaurants will open their doors at 8:00 p.m. and will be receiving guests until 10:30, later than that might be too late for getting in. It’s advisable to make a reservation because you don’t want to get there and find yourself on a waitlist! Whatever your budget or cravings, there is an option that will work for you.
All attending guests will be eligible for a raffle draw that will take place on the 31st of December.

What’s New Year’s Eve without a New Year’s Brunch?

Engage in a captivating panoramic rooftop view of Kuwait alongside live music and delicious food to top of it all off to celebrate the start of 2019. The older we get, the more appreciative we become of brunch. There’s no early wake-up and it’s a lighter yet fulfilling meal. Instead, you’ll find yourself full of boundless energy, ready to conquer the day and the world, and in this case, 2019.
Breakfast starts at 8 a.m.- to 2 p.m. at Elements Restaurant for KD 13 only which is a steal. Non-morning people will appreciate the later brunch at Sintoho or Dai Forni Restaurant from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at KD 35 per person.
