Hyatt Hotels Corporation on Wednesday announced an affiliate has entered into a management agreement with Tamdeen Group to reintroduce the Hyatt Regency brand into Kuwait.
The Hyatt Regency Al Kout Mall marks the second collaboration between Hyatt and Tandeem Group, following the Grand Hyatt Kuwait, which is set to open in 2020.
Hyatt Regency Al Kout Mall is currently undergoing a major renovation and is set to debut in January 2019.
The property will be an integral part of the Al Kout Development, Kuwait's largest waterfront, retail and leisure destination.
"We're thrilled to continue our relationship with Tandeem Group and look forward to this exciting project strengthening Hyatt's brand presence in Kuwait," said Ludwig Bouldoukian, Dubai-based regional vice president of development, Middle East and North Africa.
"Following extensive redevelopment plans, the hotel will cater to the requirements of on-the-go business travelers and provide an unparalleled setting for meetings. It is a great pleasure to undertake this project in conjunction with Tamdeem Group, given their undeniable reputation for exemplary developments in the region."
Mohammed Jassim Khalid Al Marzouq, chairman of Tamdeen Group, added: "We are delighted to expand our existing relationship with Hyatt beyond the plans to build Grand Hyatt Kuwait. 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."
