Radisson SAS to Manage Beach Resort in Fujairah
New Property to Debut in 2009
Radisson SAS Hotels & Resorts, the first class full service brand of The Rezidor Hotel Group, will operate a 321-room resort in the emirate of Fujairah, its fifth property in the United Arab Emirates.
The Radisson SAS Al Aqah Beach Resort Fujairah, is scheduled to open in 2009. The property will have three restaurants, extensive meeting facilities, outdoor swimming pools, a private beach, as well as a spa and health club. The resort will be close to the Musandam peninsula in Oman. Infrastructure Capital Group is the owner and developer of the Radisson SAS Al Aqah Beach Resort.
Jean-Marc Busato, Area Vice President, The Rezidor Hotel Group said, "Fujairah has witnessed a rapid rate of economic and social development over the last five years and is already well-known in the local market for its stunning nature and marine life. Proposed developments of the emirate will hopefully also raise the emirate's international tourism profile." Infrastructure Capital Group and Rezidor are also discussing the construction of 70, exclusive beach-front condominiums adjacent to the Radisson SAS Al Aqah Beach Resort. In addition to its own exclusive beach and landscaped gardens, the condominiums would be serviced by the Resort and have access to its first-class facilities.
Rezidor currently has three properties in the United Arab Emirates - Radisson SAS Resort, Sharjah and last year it opened two hotels in Dubai, Radisson SAS Hotel, Dubai Media City and Radisson SAS Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek. In 2008, it will also see the opening of the Radisson SAS Residence, Pier 24 in Dubai Marina.
