Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group Set to Open the 74-suite Radisson Blu Hotel, Dhahran in Saudi Arabia
"Saudi Arabia is an important growth market for Carlson Rezidor because of its strategic location in the Middle East," said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor. "With a rapidly growing population of nearly 30 million people, the Kingdom is the Gulf's largest Arab country with a gross domestic product of more than SAR 2.5 trillion (EUR 500 billion), making it a highly lucrative market for the growth of our regional footprint. With the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dhahran, our portfolio rises to 18 hotels and 3,300 rooms in operation and under development, serving as a springboard for future developments in the area."
Catering to leisure and business travelers, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dhahran features an outdoor swimming pool, spa and fitness centre. Two fully-equipped meeting rooms are available for a wide variety of events and social gatherings while a convenient lobby café and all-day dining restaurant offer plentiful dining options.
Carlson Rezidor currently operates 30 hotels with more than 8,000 rooms across the Middle East and Africa. The sophisticated upper upscale brand Radisson Blu and the dynamic midscale offer Park Inn by Radisson are the group's core brand
