The new Radisson Red will join several other hotels operating under the brand in the Asia-Pacific pipeline, which includes Guangzhou in China, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and Mohali in India.

In the Philippines, Radisson Hotel Group also operates Park Inn by Radisson hotels in Davao and Clark. Meanwhile, the group is currently eyeing additional development opportunities across the country to continue expanding its brands. 

Radisson Hotel Group also recently announced plans to expand its portfolio in South Asia to include more than 200 hotels operating or under development by 2022. The group has already signed the Radisson Blu Resort Visakhapatnam, the Radisson Panipat City Centre and the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson Agra in 2018's first quarter. Radisson also plans to open eight hotels in India this year following the opening of the Radisson Gwalior in March 2018.
