Carlson Rezidor has signed a multiple-property deal with Saphir Group for four hotels in Indonesia – the Radisson Red Jakarta CBD, Radisson Red Bali Legian Camakila, Radisson Bali Legian Camakila and Radisson Bali Tanjung Benoa.
With this deal, Carlson Rezidor will introduce Radisson Red to Indonesia, grow the Radisson brand and almost double its hotel pipeline in this market. The two Radisson Red properties will be new builds, while the two Radisson branded properties will open by Jan. 1, 2016.
“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, president, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
