Regency Kuwait unveils new facilities
Kuwait, March 24, 2013
The Regency Kuwait, a leading luxury five-star hotel in the country, said it has rolled out several new facilities and more value-added services to further enhance its guests’ experience.
Announcing the new facilities, The Regency Kuwait GM Aurelio Giraudo said the leading Kuwaiti-owned, five star hotel represented the very best of Arabian hospitality and international standards of excellence.
"This hotel opened in 1981, which shows that this brand has stood the test of time. Our job now is to take it to the next level, to take The Regency into the future; to do that we have to innovate and improve constantly," he added.
Speaking of the landmark hotel’s history of staying ‘ahead of the curve,’ Giraudo said it aims to provide the increasingly savvy global traveller with exceptional standards of services, and including more ‘added-value’ luxuries that many other hotel brands consider ‘added extras’.
“More importantly, being an independent family-owned hotel allows us to innovate faster than other chain hotels” he added.
Russell Loughland, the director of sales and marketing, said the key services include “The Executive Experience at The Regency”, a value-added programme for corporate travellers.
He also spoke about the Ladies’ Lounge new membership scheme as well as countless improvements, such as the introduction of Wi-Fi in limousines.
Loughland said as part of the new services, the hotel will launch two new culinary outlets within the next few months.
"The Regency Gourmet is a delightful confectionary shop presenting the hotel’s famous homemade sweets, chocolates, cakes and a range of exclusive gourmet delicacies amidst a stunning Hollywood-inspired interior," he revealed.
Balsamico, a flagship Italian restaurant, will open after Ramadan. It has been named after the much-prized Italian vinegar, said Loughland.
According to him, Balsamico will set a new standard in Kuwait for authentic Italian cuisine. "It will be bringing together not just The Regency’s impeccable style and service but also exceptional gastronomic innovation," remarked Loughland.
"The Regency’s mission is to remain on the cutting edge of global luxury hospitality and to set the benchmark for international standards of five-star luxury in the Northern Gulf," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
