Radisson Blu
Carlson Rezido announced the re-opening of the Radisson Blu Hotel Kuwait in September, 2013, after a three year renovation period. The property holds particular significance, both within the company history - as the first Radisson Blu hotel outside of Scandinavia, and as an iconic meeting place for the capital city.

Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group, commented, “The re-opening of the Radisson Blu Hotel Kuwait signifies the launch of a new chapter of history for the property, which opened in 1980 with my predecessor, Kurt Ritter, as General Manager. From this property, Kurt grew the Radisson Blu brand across the Middle East, Europe and Africa, and made Rezidor the internationally successful company that it is today, with a remaining passion for business development in the Middle East.”
