Do you like to keep fit while “on the road” and choosing accommodation depending on the hotel fitness, or spa facilities ?
Have you been also wondering, why hotel booking sites and hotel pages contains so little or non-existent informations and photos from their fitness facilities?
Yes, you are not alone! I am not an olympic athlete by any means, but enjoy de-stressing cardio session or few lifts after long day at work or just little “top up” during beach vacation.
That’s why I have decided to review gyms in every hotel I am staying in and help you find and recommend ( or not ) a gym while travelling.
Four Points by Sheraton hotel in Kuwait is the tallest hotel in town, offering two joined towers with over 400 rooms.
Hotels fitness & spa are placed on the very top two floors with magnificent views … especially from the infinity pool facing the sea side.
The fitness, spa and infinity swimming pool are located on the very top of the 42 floors tower located on the edge of Kuwait Downtown approx. 20min from the Intl. Airport.
Facilities are offering breathtaking views from treadmills and the amazing sunsets from jacuzzi are ones not to be missed.
The gym itself its not so impressive, but it does the job for few days stay. See details below.
Complimentary water & towels available + free Wi-Fi for guest.
Equipment 5/10 :
Gym offers only 9 basic machines for each muscle part. There is plenty of cardio equipment, but with the lack of variety, I was somehow struggling to follow up on my routine.
I did miss Smith Machine or bench press and only one bench in free weight area is not enough for hotel of this size.
Equipment is made by American manufacturer Hammer Strenthg and free weights are up to decent 26kg.
Facilities 10/10 :
- Infinity swimming pool
- Steam room
- Restaurant & pool bar ( no alcoholic beverages )
Verdict 7/10 :
The facilities are more designed for relaxing than for hardcore exercise.
You will definitely be able to have a decent workout, but the highlight of the place must be the pool, jacuzzi and spa.
