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.
