Tim Cordon, Senior Area Vice President, Middle East & Africa, Radisson Hotel Group, comments :
We are delighted to open the doors of our first Radisson Collection hotel in Africa, in the heart of Bamako. Radisson Collection represents a portfolio of unique luxury properties with distinct identities, bespoke design and true authenticity, which is evident in the Radisson Collection hotel in Bamako. In addition to the Radisson Collection hotels already under development in Lagos, Cairo and Abuja, we believe that the brand has strong additional potential on the continent as we continue to strengthen our presence in all key markets.
Fleury Courtin, General Manager of the Radisson Collection Hotel, Bamako, added :
My passionate team and I are honored to introduce this exceptional brand and hotel to our guests and to Africa. We bring the authenticity of Bamako to every guest, from our choice of meals and views to our hospitality.
Concerned about the health and safety of its guests and employees, the Radisson Hotel Group partnered in May with SGS, the inspection and certification company, to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and to reinforce the group's existing hygiene guidelines.
