Weather in Kuwait City

Kuwait City has a hot desert climate.

With daytime temperatures in excess of 45°C (113°F), Kuwait City experiences some of the hottest temperatures on earth in the summer (June to September). June and July also bring strong winds and heavy dust storms that can last for a few days.

Autumn (October to November) is also hot with temperatures hovering around 30°C (86°F). Heavy thunderstorms may occur from time to time, bringing relief.

Winter (December to February) sees temperatures drop quite substantially, hitting between 13°C (55°F) and 20°C (68°F). This is the best time to visit Kuwait City. Between November and February is the camel racing season so come to the At-Atraf Camel Racing Club to enjoy this spectacular. February also sees the month-long Hala Festival roll into town, bringing the city to life with live music, poetry recitals and art.

Spring (end of February to May) is another great time to visit Kuwait City. The temperatures are more bearable and the humidity is less intense.

Featured Hotels

SEE MORE

Marina Hotel

For this price, don't expect the Ritz. Overlooking Mutrah fish market, this is a simple, harbourside hotel offering great views of Muscat's famous corniche. It's basic, and its basement bar can be a little noisy, but its location is within walking distance of Mutrah Souk, making it convenient for sightseeing.

Ghani Palace Hotel

It could do with a bit of a facelift, but the Ghani Palace is one of the few hotels in the city where you don't have to check the address to remember you're in the Middle East. The quirky Arabian-style hotel sports Syrian furniture, Moroccan lanterns and local stucco, plus local-style hospitality to match.

Sheraton Kuwait Hotel and Towers

Jutting out of the commercial centre, this iconic Sheraton is a steal for those on a moderate budget. With 5-stars on its chest, guests can expect everything from king-sized beds and fast Wi-Fi to five fine restaurants and an English tea lounge. Mixing Arabic lavishness with European furniture, it also has a health club and a swimming pool.

Kuwait Continental Hotel

As the trophies behind reception testify, this no-frills hotel on a busy intersection is a favourite with regional sports teams. The refurbished rooms and bathrooms have an Arabian flourish with gilt-edged décor and furnishings that come as a pleasant surprise after the rather casual foyer. It also has a swimming pool and health club.

Hotel ibis Kuwait Salmiya

With a decent location near the Scientific Center, this budget chain hotel also affords some great sea views as well. The rooms are small, but clean and well appointed, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. There's also an on-site gym and a buffet breakfast to set you up for the day.

Mirage Suites Hotel

What the Mirage Suites Hotel lacks in looks and luxury, it makes up for with its sea views. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and well maintained, although try for one that feature vistas over the Arabian Gulf. A short taxi ride from the Salmiya area, the hotel also has its own swimming pool, gym and sauna.
