As part of Radisson’s five-year expansion and transformation plan, the hotel group has announced plans to reach a milestone of 100 hotels in the Middle East by 2025.

Located at Al Marjan Island and expected to open in Q4 2021,  the resort will offer views of the Arabian Gulf and comprise two buildings featuring 408 rooms and several dining outlets.

The group has also announced its first resort property in Dubai, which will open on Palm Jumeirah in Q1 2022, featuring 389 rooms and five food and beverage outlets. 

In addition, the group announced the launch of two new hotels in Riyadh. The Radisson Hotel Riyadh Airport will cater to both business and leisure travellers, and Mansard Riyadh, a Radisson Collection Hotel, will be located in the heart of the city.
