Marriott Teams Up With Kuwait Projects On St Regis Resort In Morocco
United Real Estate Co, a unit of Kuwait Projects Co, and Marriott International have issued a joint statement saying that they have agreed to open a resort near Marrakech.

Introducing The St. Regis Brand To Marrakech
The St. Regis Marrakech, in central Morocco, should open in 2024, the joint statement published in Kuwait said, without disclosing the cost of the development.
The deal "introduces" Marriott's St Regis brand to Marrakech, it said, adding that the resort will be owned by Morocco's Assoufid Properties Development and developed by United Real Estate.
