In partnership with Tamdeen Group, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts has unveiled plans for a new-build, 261-room Grand Hyatt property in Kuwait slated for 2020, representing the fifth Grand Hyatt hotel in the GCC.
The Grand Hyatt-branded property is to form part of 360 MALL, a luxury shopping destination which boasts retail, leisure and entertainment facilities.
Only seven mines from Kuwait’s downtown, Grand Hyatt Kuwait will be in close proximity to embassies, government ministries and Kuwait International Airport.
As for facilities, the hotel, which will be designed by RTKL Architects (the designers of the 360 MALL), will be home to four food and beverage outlets and first class meeting and events facilities ideal for government, business and social events in the city.
Enthusing on the news was senior vice president, acquisitions and development, Hyatt – Europe, Africa and Middle East, Peter Norman: “Kuwait is increasingly becoming a major gateway city, so we are delighted to announce this plan to bring the Grand Hyatt brand to this global business and cultural hub. We look forward to welcoming guests to Grand Hyatt Kuwait, where they will be able to experience the innovative design, dramatic architecture and superior service for which the Grand Hyatt brand is known. It is also a pleasure to execute this project with Tamdeen Group who is well known for the impeccable quality of their developments.”
Meanwhile, chairman, Tamdeen Group, Mohammed Jassim Khalid Al Marzouq noted: “We are honoured to work with Hyatt as the brand continues to expand its presence in the Gulf region. Grand Hyatt Kuwait, our first project with Hyatt, will bring the hospitality aspect of the 360 MALL to life as part of the expansion of the prestigious international tennis complex launched earlier this month.”
He continued: “Given Hyatt’s strong brand name and the new hotel’s excellent location, we believe that Grand Hyatt Kuwait will attract both business and leisure travellers from across the region.”
