A Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence franchise is set to open in Larnaca in 2017 near the port offering 105 guest rooms and serviced apartments, Rezidor Hotel Group announced yesterday.
“Our entry into Cyprus provides an excellent opportunity for us, and Larnaca is a major city which fits well with our Radisson Blu strategy. We believe that this signing will mark a significant step in the island’s recovery and will pave the way for further local and international hotel interest,” Rezidor CEO Wolfgang Neumann said.
The hotel will be operated by the Rezidor Hotel Group, which is part of the Carlson Reizfor Hotel Group, and SunnySeeker Hotels under a franchise agreement.
“We are delighted to be working with Quality Group who are an established developer in Cyprus, and SunnySeeker Hotels as the renowned third-party hotel management company, and we thank them for this opportunity to introduce the only branded hotel to the city.”
Construction is already underway for an upper-upscale hotel close to the beach, next to the city centre and 7km away from the Larnaca airport.
The agreement makes Cyprus the 80th country Rezidor is tapping into across Europe, the Middle East and Africa with more than 1,350 hotels in over 105 countries.
