The seven new hotels will add over 1,600 rooms to Radisson’s Morocco portfolio
The partnership with tourism investment company Madaef will see four properties open this month in the tourist destinations of Al Hoceima, Saidia and Taghazout. The agreement comprises a mixture of conversions and new-build hotels, and will take Radisson’s portfolio of Moroccan properties to 10 hotels, in line with its target of having 15 hotels in operation or under development across the country by 2025.
The new-build Radisson Blu Resort and Radisson Blu Residences, Al Hoceima are both set to open this month in northern Morocco.
Radisson Blu Resort Saidia Beach is also set to open this month, offering 397 rooms located next to the town’s marina – this will be followed in 2022 by the conversion of the adjacent Radisson Blu Resort, Saidia Garden and Radisson Blu Residences, Saidia.
Finally, two of the group’s properties are set to open in Taghazout Bay. Radisson Blu Resort, Taghazout Bay Surf Village will launch this month, followed by Radisson Residences Taghazout Bay in 2023.
Radisson Hotel Group’s executive vice president and chief development officer EMEA, Elie Younes, said: “We are delighted to announce this portfolio of seven new hotels, as it not only accelerates our growing presence in Morocco, but also reaffirms our commitment towards the country and its future.
“We remain committed to the country’s Royal Vision, Morocco’s new campaign to promote national as well as international tourism developments. We would like to thank our business partners for their trust in our brands and teams as we look forward to opening these world-class properties across Morocco together.”
Last month Radisson announced plans for its second property in the port city of Casablanca, with the Radisson Hotel Casablanca Gauthier La Citadelle.
