Currently under construction, this hotel is set to open in summer 2023. It will be the first Radisson branded hotel in East Africa. It is located near from the third largest airport hub in Africa, Bole International Airport, home to the Africa’s largest airline. The property is also adjacent to the country’s new national stadium which is still under construction.

Radisson Resort Dakar Saly, Senegal

The hotel is located in Saly, a popular seaside resort in Senegal and the Sub-Saharan region. It will be the first Radisson resort in Africa and the second Radisson branded property in Senegal when it opens its doors in 2024. Radisson Resort Dakar Saly offers easy access to the Blaise Diagne International Airport of Dakar, the city center of the capital, and the community of Diamniadio via a brand-new highway.

La Maison Blanche Tunis, a member of Radisson Individuals

This hotel already exists in Tunis but it will undergo a full renovation prior to re-opening its doors in January 2023 as a member of Radisson Individuals. La Maison Blanche Tunis joins the Group’s existing two hotels in operation and three under development in Tunisia, with a total of almost 1,000 rooms.
