In the late 1970s, Abdul Razzak Al Sane had a dream to create a hotel in Kuwait that delivered unrivalled luxury; one that also ensured its guests would return to, time and time again. Since opening its doors in 1981, The Regency has been an iconic landmark on the city’s horizon, and remains one after all these years. 

The Regency suffered a catastrophic blow when it was destroyed during the 1990 invasion of Kuwait. Against all odds, the dream was rebuilt and in 2009 The Regency was revived with a new lease of life that continues to build on its remarkable history.
