Radisson SAS Hotels & Resorts, the first-class full-service brand of The Rezidor Hotel Group, will operate a 320-room resort in the emirate of Fujairah, its fifth property in the United Arab Emirates. The Radisson Al Aqah Beach Resort is scheduled to open in 2009. The property will have three restaurants, extensive meeting facilities, outdoor swimming pools, a private beach, as well as a spa and health club.
Jean-Marc Busato, Area Vice President of The Rezidor Hotel Group said, ‘Fujairah has witnessed a rapid rate of economic and social development over the last five years and is already well-known in the local market for its stunning nature and marine life. Proposed developments will hopefully also raise the emirate’s international tourism profile.’
Infrastructure Capital Group, the owner and developer of the Radisson Al Aqah Beach Resort, is also planning to construct up to 100 exclusive beach-front condominiums adjacent to the resort. In addition to their own exclusive beach and landscaped gardens, these luxury condominiums will be serviced by the resort and includes access to its first-class facilities.
Rezidor currently operates three properties in the United Arab Emirates - the Radisson SAS Resort, Sharjah and two hotels in Dubai, the Radisson SAS Hotel, Dubai Media City and the Radisson SAS Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek. 2008 will also see the opening of the Radisson SAS Residence, Pier 24 in the Dubai Marina.
