The hotel originally opened in the 1980s as the Golden Tulip Messilah Beach Resort, where it established a vaunted reputation as a luxurious beach resort with the finest services in Kuwait, attracting both a local and international clientele. Badly damaged in the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990, the resort never made a powerful comeback in the Kuwaiti market and suffered from the competition of other newer properties all over the country. It was eventually closed in 2002 and completely demolished to make way for its all-new incarnation as the Jumeirah Messilah Beach. After dealing with a long string of delays related to construction, design upgrades and management mishaps (the hotel was initially to be managed as The Regent Kuwait, part of the luxury arm of Belgium’s Rezidor Hotel Group, but disagreements between the owners and Rezidor resulted in a cancellation of the agreement). An agreement is now signed between the owners and Jumeirah Group of Dubai to manage this property
Currently there is no update on the official opening date
