Unmarried couple in Kuwait

Hi everyone!

I and my male friend have plans to visit Kuwait soon and I was looking for hotels. We are not married, is it a problem when arriving to the hotel? I have read so much about the policy of hotels, but is here someone who could say if this hotel (Kuwait Continental Hotel) accepts unmarried couples. I know it's illegal, but have heard that western couples could stay together. I would appreciate your answer. Thanks to everyone reading this.

Anja and David

The best thing to do is contact the hotel directly.

You and Pinto are both correct. By law, it is illegal, however, the hotel policies could differ especially for Westerners.

Can I ask if everything was ok in the end? A male friend and I are also visiting Kuwait soon and I am trying to figure out whether this will be an issue or not at the hotel!

Thank you!
