Radisson Hotel Group will expand its portfolio to include more than 200 hotels both open and under development in South Asia by 2022. The company will focus on opening hotels in various locations while growing its mid-scale brand presence across South Asia and its new Radisson Collection brand worldwide.
The group signed the Radisson Blu Resort Visakhapatnam, the Radisson Panipat City Centre and the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson Agra in the first quarter of 2018. The company is on track to open another eight hotels in India this year following the opening of the Radisson Gwalior in March 2018.
The company recently launched its Radisson Collection brand with 13 properties in the pipeline. The first of these will open in Agra, India with a 239-room hotel.
Radisson currently operates a total of seven brands in India: Radisson, Radisson Blu, Radisson Red, Park Plaza, Park Inn by Radisson and Country Inn & Suites by Radisson. A total of 90 existing hotels are operating across India under Radisson Hotel Group. The country's inventory is set to reach 100 hotels by the end of 2018.
The group previously signed 12 hotels to its portfolio in India in late November 2017. Radisson planned to develop each new hotel through management and selective franchising contracts in India's emerging cities. The Radisson Jodhpur, Radisson Mumbai Goregaon and Radisson Bengalaru City Center are already open while the Radisson Zirakpur, the Park Plaza Kaushambi, the Radisson Mumbai Andheri MIDC, the Radisson Goa Baga, the Radisson Bhopal, the Radisson Kufri, the Radisson Rewa, the Radisson Blu Dehradun and the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson Bareilly will open by 2021.
