Indonesia is set to get a new Radisson hotel. The Radisson Medan will be the fifth Carlson Rezidor hotel to open in Indonesia after Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, Radisson Golf & Convention Center Batam, Park Inn by Radisson Lampung and Radisson Jakarta Cengkareng.
Medan is the fourth-largest city in Indonesia, and within a one-hour flight radius of Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Penang. Given its status as the gateway to the Lake Toba tourism region, which the Ministry of Tourism in Indonesia is focused on developing, Medan is also growing as a tourist destination.
Radisson Medan will be a 219-room hotel in downtown Medan, next to the Medan clock tower, along the major thoroughfare of Jl. H. Adam Malik.
In 2013, Carlson Rezidor signed a strategic partnership with Panorama Group, an integrated group of companies focusing on tourism, transportation, hospitality and related businesses in Indonesia,to develop Carlson Rezidor hotels in tourist destinations and Indonesian cities including Bali, Jakarta and Surabaya, as well as emerging destinations such as Bandung, Bintan, Lombok, Makassar and Palembang. Radisson Medan is owned by VIGOUR Group, a diversified family business that has interests in agribusiness, hotels, consumer goods and alcoholic beverages.
