Another global hotel company is casting its eyes on Cyprus. Radisson Hospitality, part of the Radisson Hotel Group, is bringing its core brand to Southern Europe with the signing of the Radisson Larnaca Beach Resort, due to open in Q3 2019.  

The resort is the group's third hotel in Cyprus and will complement the recently opened Radisson Blu Hotel, Larnaca. A year-round destination, Cyprus is a major tourist destination in the Eastern Mediterranean, attracting more than two million tourists annually.

“This signing marks our focus on growing our resort portfolio across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, particularly in some of the most-loved destinations in the world,” said Elie Younes, EVP and CDO of Radisson Hotel Group.

After an intensive refurbishment, the Radisson Larnaca Beach Resort will have 202 guestrooms with views of the ocean and nearby gardens, three restaurants (including a beach bar and restaurant), lounge bars, a range of fitness and leisure facilities, as well as conference and meeting rooms.

The resort will be operated by Cyprus-based management company Sunnyseeker Hotels.

Cyprus is on other companies' radar as well. Earlier this month, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts announced plans to open a new Wyndham hotel in Nicosia, marking the brand's debut in the country. Zeus International will operate the property.
