Rezidor Grows its African Portfolio


Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has accelerated its growth in Africa with the addition of three hotels to the six it has already opened in 2017.

The new 530 rooms bring the group’s African portfolio to a tally of 80 hotels and over 17,200 rooms in operation and under development.

With an accelerated growth strategy to deliver on its significant development pipeline, within the next five years the African portfolio will feature 125 hotels by establishing critical mass in key countries.

In 2017, Carlson Rezidor has opened six hotels across the continent, with Park Inn by Radisson properties in Polokwane (South Africa), Nairobi (Kenya) and Kigali (Rwanda); a Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence in Cape Town; a Radisson Red in Cape Town; and a Radisson Blu Hotel in N’Djamena (Chad).

The three new hotels announced at the African Hotel Investment Forum in Kigali will open in the next few years.

They are: Radisson Blu Hotel, Bishoftu, Ethiopia; Park Inn by Radisson Addis Ababa (Ethiopia); and The Aso Towers Hotel & Residence Abuja (Nigeria).
