Radisson opens second Egyptian resort
Radisson Hotels & Resorts will open its second Red Sea resort on Egypt's Sinai Riviera in November. The Radisson Resort Taba is the chain's second Egyptian property, following the opening last year of the Radisson Golden Resort in Sharm El Sheikh.
“Our Middle East expansion is in full swing, following the announcement of two more Turkish properties two months ago,” said Vice President, Middle East Radisson Hotels & Resorts, Jean-Marc Busato. “Egypt's importance to our chain will be further highlighted by the planned opening of two more properties, in Hurghada and Al Quesir,” he added.
The five-star, 348-room Radisson Resort Taba is owned by Premier for Tourism & Real Estate Investment, part of Egypt's Al-Gamal Group. The resort's 348 rooms include 70 Marine Club rooms, 12 luxury suites and 44 unique one and two bedroom family suites. There is also a Mediterranean restaurant, roof top Arabic café, two bars and a nightclub.
Radisson Hotels & Resorts operates eight Middle East and African properties in Amman, Aqaba, Bahrain, Cape Town, Istanbul, Kuwait, Muscat and Sharm El Sheikh. Four more hotels will be added to the portfolio as per November in Beirut, Sharjah, Taba and Yanbu.
A further two will operate under the Radisson flag by January 2003 in Saudi Arabia's Jeddah and Riyadh. Two more properties in Egypt's Hurghada and Al Quseir are also in the pipeline, while Turkey will also see the opening of two more hotels in Ankara and Istanbul. — (menareport.com)
