During the Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific in Singapore, Radisson Hotel Group has announced its growth and development plans across the Southeast Asia region.

As part of these plans, the Radisson group will continue to expand its upscale Radisson RED brand in Danang, Vietnam; Phuket, Thailand; and Cebu City in the Philippines.

In the interim, The Radisson Collection brand – a luxury lifestyle proposition in iconic and unique locations – will soon debut in the Southeast Asia region, with upcoming openings in 2024 in Galle (Sri Lanka) and Boracay (the Philippines).

Moreover, the Radisson group says it will also continue to accelerate the growth of its upper upscale Radisson Blu brand with new properties in the pipeline for Colombo, Sri Lanka and Hoi An, Vietnam.

The group recently signed and opened more than 150 properties across the Asia-Pacific region, says its executive vice president and global chief development officer, Elie Younes.

“Thanks to our owners, guests and team members, we continue our ambitious growth journey in Asia and globally, creating more possibilities and opportunities. From midscale to lifestyle and luxury, Asia offers tremendous opportunities to experience, work and invest in hospitality. Based on our recent successes with signings and openings, over 150 hotels have been added in APAC, and we look forward to continuing our exponential growth across the region.”
