Radisson Hotel Group has signed a landmark agreement for three hotels and resorts in Sri Lanka with La Vie Hotels & Resorts, which will result in the launch of an upper-upscale Radisson Blu resort near Galle, and two upscale Radisson hotels in Colombo and Kandy.
The three new properties will start to welcome guests in 2Q2022.
Radisson Blu Resort, Galle is nestled on a long stretch of sand, offering 172 rooms and suites, a large lagoon pool, kids’ club, fitness centre, spa and a collection of dining options. There are also three meeting rooms, a grand ballroom and elegant alfresco spaces.
Radisson Hotel Colombo is a stylish city hotel just steps from the sea near Marine Drive, Colombo’s main coastal road. With 158 upscale rooms and suites, many of which overlook the ocean, guests can enjoy facilities like the rooftop infinity pool and bar, and gym. Wellawatte Beach is only 700m away, while Bandaranaike International Airport is a 50-minute drive away.
The 122-key Radisson Hotel Kandy puts guests close to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sri Dalada Maligawa, which is just a 30 minutes’ drive away. Facilities include a gym, rooftop pool, restaurant and bar.
Katerina Giannouka, president, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group, commented: “We are delighted to sign these landmark agreements with La Vie Hotels & Resorts and owner, Sino Lanka Group, as we continue to increase our footprint in Sri Lanka, one of Asia’s most desirable destinations. With a trio of world-class hotels…Radisson Hotel Group will be established at the forefront of Sri Lanka’s tourism and hospitality industries.”
These three new hotels will be joined by Park Inn by Radisson in Colombo and a Radisson Collection resort in Galle, both of which are scheduled to open soon.
