Radisson Hotel Group Cements Presence in Middle East
Radisson Hotel Group cements its presence further as one of the largest international hotel groups in the region, with a growing portfolio of 77 hotels in operation and under development across the Middle East.
At this year’s Future Hospitality Summit held in the UAE, the Group announced tenacious expansion plans as it sets to add over 5,000 keys to its expansive portfolio in the next five years.
After two successful years of record-breaking signings and key developments, Radisson Hotel Group continues to focus on the Middle East region, with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and United Arab Emirates (UAE) remaining its core markets. The Group has ambitious plans to sign at least five hotels and open more than 1000 keys within the next 12 months.
In the UAE, Radisson Hotel Group is set to open the highly-anticipated resort Radisson Beach Resort Palm Jumeirah later this year, following the successful opening of Radisson Resort Ras Al Khaimah on Marjan Island, earlier this year as the first Radisson Resort in the Middle East.
As part of the Group’s aim to strengthen its resort portfolio, the property will open its doors at West Beach, Palm Jumeirah, one of the most buzzing destinations in Dubai.
The most recent opening of Radisson Hotel Riyadh Airport marked the Group’s first Radisson branded property in Riyadh, KSA. June saw the opening of Mansard Riyadh, A Radisson Collection Hotel, which is the luxury lifestyle brand’s second hotel in the city, further enhancing its collection of city and leisure hotels across Riyadh.
With a robust pipeline in place, the Group now has over 25 hotels and serviced apartments in operation and under development in the Kingdom, including the upcoming openings of Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Convention and Exhibition Center, and Park Inn by Radisson hotels in Makkah’s Thakher City Development.
Radisson Hotel Group currently operates 52 properties in the Middle East with more than 11,000 keys, catering to evolving and diverse customer needs. As leisure and business travel continues to thrive in the region, the international hospitality leader is working on 25 properties in the Middle East with more than 5,000 keys under development.
