Radisson Hotel Group announces the signing of the Radisson Hotel Saint Denis in Reunion Island, bringing its presence to three of the four main Indian Ocean Islands, and growing their Indian Ocean portfolio to seven hotels in operation and under development.
Radisson Hotel Saint Denis is in the administrative capital of the French overseas region. It is located on the north end of Reunion Island and Radisson’s newest hotel is on the main axis within walking distance from the main commercial and financial district. Positioned in front of the Promenade, between the old town and the main highway, it allows easy access across the city. The hotel offers unrivalled access to Saint Denis Roland Garros International Airport, the main airport in the Reunion Island, less than 20 minutes away.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Radisson provides a unique value proposition to both guest and owners in the full service segment based on a compelling guest experience within an efficient real estate framework. We now enter our third Indian Ocean Island with the first upscale internationally branded hotel. We look forward to a mutually rewarding journey with our partners and thank them for their trust.”
The hotel offers 124 upscale rooms and suites with modern amenities. It will feature five food and beverage outlets, with cuisine suited to every taste at the all-day dining restaurant, the destination restaurant as well as the lobby café. For a refreshing drink, guests are invited to explore the hotel bars, which includes a bar and lounge on the rooftop with vast views over the Island. The hotel’s 416 m² of meeting and events space will consist of a large conference room and six meeting rooms and will include a fully equipped gym.
The hotel’s owners, Semir Soundardjee and Altaf Soundardjee of Aniva SA, said, “We are proud to be partnering with Radisson Hotel Group to bring Saint Denis’ first internationally branded hotel to the city.
