Rezidor opens 2 new properties in Kiev (Ukraine) and Fujairah (UAE)

The Rezidor Hotel Group has signed an international management agreement in order to develop and operate the Radisson SAS Airport Hotel Kiev. The new hotel with approximately 300 rooms, conference and wellness facilities will open its doors by the end of 2009 as the second Rezidor-property in town – the company already runs the centrally located Radisson SAS Hotel Kiev.

“We are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation with V.I. Center LLC, the hotel’s owner”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group. “This new project underlines the importance the Ukrainian market has for us – we see a great potential in CIS as well as in Russia.”

Besides Russia and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), the United Arab Emirates belong to the most important markets for The Rezidor Hotel Group. In the small Emirate Fujairah – 90 minutes away from Dubai and surrounded by blue seas and rugged mountains – the company will open the Radisson Al Aqah Beach Resort at the end of 2009. The new property will be built directly at a private stretch of the white Al Aqah Beach and offer excellent water sport facilities including scuba diving. The resort will feature approximately 320 rooms, 3 restaurants, a spa & health club, meeting facilities and a wedding hall.

“The United Arab Emirates are a fascinating and fast growing market”, adds Kurt Ritter, “the potential for new and exciting developments is excellent, and we are glad to be part of it.”
