Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has signed a multiple-property deal in Indonesia, which will include the launch of Southeast Asia’s first ever Radisson Red hotels.
The agreement, penned with Saphir Group, will see the opening of four new Indonesian hotels under the Radisson and Radisson Red brands.
Radisson Bali Legian Camakila and Radisson Bali Tanjung Benoa are both scheduled to open by 1 January 2016, while the new-build Radisson Red Legian Camakila and Radisson Red Jakarta CBD will launch in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
“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, Carlson Rezidor’s president for Asia Pacific.
Radisson Red is Carlson Rezidor’s “upscale lifestyle” brand, which aims to provide guest-friendly services and a high level of technology. For developers and owners, these new-build hotels incorporate a “multi-functional approach” that reduces construction and operating costs.
The brand will make its Indonesian debut in 2018 with the opening of the Radisson Red Legian Camakila, 130-room beachfront hotel in Bali. Then a year later the 36-room Radisson Red Jakarta CBD will open its doors in the centre of the Indonesian capital. The property will feature a gallery for local art and F&B outlets including Ouibar and the 24-hour REDeli.
Prior to these openings, the 120-room Radisson Bali Legian Camakila and 190-room Radisson Bali Tanjung Benoa will both open in sea-facing locations, offering a selection of upscale resort amenities.
Carlson Rezidor now has a total of nine hotels under development in Indonesia, including the four newly-signed hotels plus the Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, Radisson Golf & Convention Center Batam, Radisson Jakarta Cengkareng, Radisson Medan and Park Inn by Radisson Lampung.
These form part of a total Asia Pacific pipeline of 90 hotels, which will almost double the company’s existing regional portfolio of 101 properties.
