Radisson Hotel Group is planning to add 30 hotel openings across EMEA in 2021 following the signing of more than 40 new hotels, resorts and serviced apartments in the region during 2020.
To date in 2021, five of the hotels opened have featured both a spa and gym facilities while two hotels had a gym. Across the entire portfolio, more than 100 hotels currently have spa facilities.
Radisson’s expansion last year also included the introduction of the Radisson Individuals brand, which offers independent hotels and local, regional chains the opportunity to be part of the global Radisson Hotel Group platform.
The 2021 opening pipeline includes seven premium lifestyle Radisson Collection hotels and resorts in key cities such as Seville and Lyon, and an impressive expansion in Italy in Milan, Venice, and Cortina d’Ampezzo.
This will bring the brand’s total portfolio to 35+ hotels globally in key cities such as Paris, Milan, London, Shanghai, Moscow, Cairo, and Lagos as well as in resort destinations such as the Blue Mountains, Bodrum, and Nanjing.
Elie Younes, Executive vice-president and chief development officer, EMEA, for Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Throughout 2020, while many hotel groups put their development plans on hold, we remained optimistic and relentless to create more possibilities for guests and opportunities for owners. 2021 will likely be a transition year with a challenging first half and an expected recovery thereafter, and I see it as a year of further opportunities for a better future.”
