An affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation has entered into a management agreement with a Tamdeen Group subsidiary for the Hyatt Regency Al Kout Mall, which will bring the Hyatt Regency brand back to Kuwait and boost the company’s growing portfolio in the Middle East.
The Regency project, set to debut in January, marks the second collaboration between Hyatt and Tamdeem Group, and follows a deal for the Grand Hyatt Kuwait, which is set to open in 2020.
The property will be part of the multifaceted Al Kout Development, Kuwait’s largest waterfront, retail and leisure destination, and will be close to business and leisure attractions, as well as Kuwait International Airport.
“We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Tamdeem Group and look forward to this exciting project strengthening Hyatt’s brand presence in Kuwait,” said Ludwig Bouldoukian, Hyatt's Dubai-based regional VP of development, Middle East and North Africa.
The hotel will have a Regency Club and several food and beverage concepts, including a speciality Italian dining venue. For meetings and events, it will offer a new ballroom and expanded meeting facilities, including a dedicated co-working space.
“We have chosen to collaborate with Hyatt to make the best of this ideal location, as we feel that the Hyatt Regency brand perfectly aligns with both the business and leisure culture prevalent in the dynamic state of Kuwait,” said Mohammed Jassim Khalid Al Marzouq, chairman of Tamdeen Group.
