With this deal, Carlson Rezidor will introduce Radisson RED to Indonesia, grow the Radisson brand and almost double its hotel pipeline in this market. The two Radisson RED properties will be new builds, while the two Radisson branded properties will open by Jan. 1, 2016.
“We are pleased to welcome on board a new partner in the key market of Indonesia, where strong growth opportunities are supported by the government’s pro-tourism measures. With this four-property deal, that includes three hotels in Bali, one of the country’s top tourist destinations, as well as one in the gateway city of Jakarta, we continue to reinforce our presence in Indonesia, a key market for us in Asia Pacific,” said Thorsten Kirschke, president, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
Carlson Rezidor now has a total of nine hotels under development in Indonesia. The other five are Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, Radisson Golf & Convention Center Batam, Radisson Jakarta Cengkareng, Radisson Medan and Park Inn by Radisson Lampung.
Radisson RED is Carlson Rezidor’s upscale Lifestyle Select brand, which appeals to the millennial-minded traveller. It offers guests a non-traditional stay experience that combines work and play, and is inspired by design, art, music and fashion. At the same time, the brand offers developers and property owners a lower per-key cost than a traditional upscale hotel, through a multi-functional approach and more efficient space planning, which significantly reduce construction and operating costs, while driving higher margins.
Radisson is one of the world’s leading global hotel brands. It delivers vibrant, contemporary and engaging hospitality that is characterized by its unique Yes I Can! service philosophy. Radisson hotels offer an upscale stay experience, backed by its 100% Guest Satisfaction Guarantee and a range of World of Radisson services and amenities, which have been created specifically to be empathetic to the challenges of modern travel.
James Kantono, Director, Saphir Group said, “Carlson Rezidor has the right brands, an excellent reputation and deep expertise. We are confident that our partnership will deliver strong returns on our investment.”
