To date this year, Radisson Hotel Group has opened two hotels in Africa; Radisson Blu Hotel and Conference Center, Niamey the first and only 5-Star international brand hotel in the country as well as the group’s debut into Algeria with the opening of Radisson Blu Hotel, Algiers Hydra.

Radisson Hotel Group is scheduled to open two more hotels before year end, with the opening of its third hotel in Kenya, Radisson Blu Hotel and Residence Nairobi Arboretum in October and Radisson Blu Hotel Casablanca scheduled to open in November, marking the group’s first entry in the city.

In addition to the portfolio of six hotels signed in Egypt earlier this year, the remaining new hotel deals include:

- Radisson RED Johannesburg Rosebank, South Africa

Building on the success of Radisson RED hotel brand, the group just announced the signing of its second Radisson RED hotel in South Africa.

Scheduled to open in February 2021, the Radisson RED Hotel Johannesburg, Rosebank will arrive and shake up the hospitality industry in South Africa’s largest city.

The hotel will be located in Oxford Parks, a vibrant mixed-use precinct comprising premium offices, apartments and supporting retail and restaurants, all situated within an exceptionally high-quality, privately managed and walkable public environment.

The new-build, 222-room Radisson RED Hotel Johannesburg, Rosebank will comprise standard studios and suites in bold designs.

The hotel will feature the famous Radisson RED food and beverage concepts and social scenes, such as the ‘all day dining’ Oui Bar and Ktchn.

Following the footsteps of its sister hotel in Cape Town, voted the best rooftop bar in the city, Radisson RED Johannesburg, Rosebank will also boast a trendy rooftop bar and terrace.

The rooftop will also include a swimming pool and fitness room, giving guests various options to unwind, all while basking in the vibrant Johannesburg skyline views.

- Radisson Hotel La Baie d’Alger Algiers, Algeria

Radisson Hotel La Baie d’Alger in Algiers is the Group’s second hotel in Algeria and first Radisson-branded hotel in the country.

The new-build hotel is scheduled to open in 2022, ideally located in the El Hamma district.

This means it will be within easy reach of famous leisure attractions such as the Botanical Garden of El Hamma, the Martyr’s Memorial and the Bardo National Museum of Prehistory and Ethnography.

It is also close to the Port of Algiers, Algeria’s historic main port for maritime trade exchanges.

The 184-room hotel consisting of standard rooms, junior suites and suites will deliver the true Radisson experience by allowing guests to feel completely at ease within soothing spaces.

Guests will be able to indulge in local and international cuisine in the modern all-day dining restaurant, while enjoying light snacks and refreshing beverages in the lobby lounge.

The hotel’s 308sqm of meetings and events space will comprise five state-of-the-art meeting rooms and one conference venue.

The leisure facilities will also include a fully equipped gym and spa.

Portfolio of three hotels in Madagascar:

The Radisson Blu Hotel Antananarivo Waterfront and the Radisson Hotel Antananarivo Waterfront will be ideally positioned in a central location at the crossroads of the city center in the main business and commercial district.

With three entrance gates, the hotels will have unrivalled access to Antananarivo International Airport, less than 30 minutes away.

Located in the Waterfront, a quiet compound which is secured (24-hour manned CCTV system) and surrounded by a large lake and multiple outlets including restaurants, a mall and cinema.

The third property, Radisson Serviced Apartments Antananarivo City Center, is located in a vibrant area within the city center, surrounded by bars, restaurants as well as major banks, ministries and the ancient Presidential Palace.
