Tamdeen Group has entered into a contract with a Hyatt affiliate to develop a 261-room Grand Hyatt hotel in Kuwait City. Expected to open in 2020, the new-build hotel will be part of 360 MALL, a mixed-use facility that integrates retail, leisure and entertainment. Grand Hyatt Kuwait will mark the fifth Grand Hyatt hotel in the Gulf Cooperation Council after the opening of Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi in 2016.

Tamdeen Group is one of the largest privately held conglomerates in Kuwait with assets valued at $4 billion. The Hotel is being developed by Spirit Real Estate Development Company, in which Tamdeen holds an approximately 90 percent interest. Grand Hyatt Kuwait will be the flagship asset in Tamdeen Group’s growing hospitality portfolio.

Grand Hyatt Kuwait will be designed by RTKL Architects, who also designed the existing 360 Mall. The completed hotel will be close to embassies, government ministries and the Kuwait International Airport.
