Carlson Rezidor is further expanding its network in Africa by adding a new country to its portfolio: Chad, the fifth largest country on the African continent. The group’s Radisson Blu Hotel N’Djamena will open in the capital city in the second quarter of 2015.
The Radisson Blu Hotel N’Djamena will be located just outside the city centre – in close proximity to embassies and commercial areas. The building overlooking the Chari River is already under construction.
The hotel will comprise 175 rooms with signature services such as free high-speed internet access. Further offers will include a lobby bar, two restaurants and more than 1,300m2 of meeting space. In addition, the property will have three amphitheatres, an assembly hall, a health club, an outdoor pool, tennis courts and large parking facilities. Business guests will benefit from a total of 12,500m2 of conference and event space – the largest offer in the region.
Radisson Blu is Carlson Rezidor’s iconic core brand in the upper upscale segment.
Chad is located in Central Africa. Over the past years, this emerging country has experienced a surge in economic growth driven by the oil industry. Chad started production and export of oil in 2003, and the Chad-Cameroon pipeline has been one of the largest infrastructure development projects in Africa.
