CARLSON Rezidor Hotel Group is ramping up its Asia-Pacific portfolio with seven new hotel signings in 2Q2013, including a management deal that will see the group's entry into Indonesia.
Simon C Barlow, president, Asia-Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said: “Carlson Rezidor Asia-Pacific closed the second quarter of 2013 on a strong note, especially in the key market of India, where 25 per cent of all the deals signed in Q2 were for Carlson Rezidor hotels, according to Horwarth’s Q2 Hotel Deal Signing Report.
“These seven new deals place us in good stead as we build our portfolio in Indonesia, grow our presence in China and reinforce our leadership position in India. We are continuing to take the lead in India and expect to open eight more new hotels in India before year-end.”
The group will add four new properties in India: the 200-key Radisson Blu Mumbai Essel World, expected to open in 4Q2014; the 84-key Country Inns & Suites By Carlson Kota in 2Q2016; the 87-key Country Inns & Suites By Carlson Raipur in 3Q2016; and the 100-key Country Inns & Suites By Carlson Noida Extension in 3Q2016.
Carlson Rezidor will also up its Shanghai presence with the 200-key Radisson Shanghai Qingpu and the 250-room Radisson Shanghai Pudong Jinqiao. Both are slated for opening in 3Q2013.
Meanwhile, Radisson Batam will usher in the company to the Indonesian market in 2H2015. The 222-key hotel is located within the Bukit Indah Sukajadi development comprising a golf course, residential units, offices, as well as commercial and retail spaces.
