The Carlson Rezidor is keen to expand its presence in the Africa market. In light of its expansion, the hotel Group announced its first property in Uganda – the Radisson Blu Hotel Kampala. The up-scale hotel will feature 195 rooms and looks to be completed in Q4 of 2016.
“Tourism is one of Uganda’s fastest developing sectors and is also becoming an important market for foreign investment due to its rich oil reserves,” said Wolfgang M Neumann, president and CEO of Rezidor.
Carlson Rezidor in early 2014 launched two new brands: the lifestyle brand – Radisson Red and the luxury brand – the Quorvus Collection. The group boasts a network of 51 hotels and 11,500 rooms in 21 countries in Africa, and has a regional office in South Africa. Recent openings of the group include the Radisson Blu Hotel, Maputo (Mozambique), the Radisson Blu Hotel, Lusaka (Zambia) and the Park Inn by Radisson Foreshore Hotel Cape Town (South Africa). Future openings include Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson hotels in Nairobi (Kenya), Kigali (Rwanda) and Cape Town (South Africa).
