Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has announced the signing for Radisson RED Kuala Lumpur City Center in Malaysia at HICAP (Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific).
The 166-room new-build hotel is located 800 meters from the Petronas Twin Towers. Spanning 27 floors, the property will feature Radisson RED elements including beverage outlets such as Ouibar, Meet-Event rooms with a view over the Petronas Twin Towers, and a rooftop swimming pool and gym.
With this signing, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group will introduce Radisson RED, a ‘millennial mindset’ brand, to the Malaysian market. The concept aims to offers guests “a non-traditional stay experience that combines work and play, and is inspired by design, art, music and fashion”.
Thorsten Kirschke, president, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said: “We are delighted to welcome our new partner in Malaysia, where we will develop a property at the heart of the regional powerhouse of Kuala Lumpur.
“This deal will grow our presence at the center of the country’s exciting economic growth story, and in one of its top tourist destinations. Malaysia is increasingly becoming a key market for us in Asia Pacific.
“The Asia Pacific region remains the most promising and energetic growth region for Carlson Rezidor, and we see a strong trajectory over the coming years. The efforts we have put in to the business here have allowed us to realize results both qualitatively and quantitatively, and we are in a good position to double our portfolio size in the mid-term, through anchor markets as well as portfolio deals. We only see our commitment to the region growing.”
