Marking the debut of its upscale Radisson brand, Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce the signing of Radisson Resort Plaza Skiathos, set to open later this year. The new agreement with HotelBrain Group will also see the opening of Radisson Blu Euphoria Resort, Mykonos just in time for the peak season of 2022, and bring the Group’s Greek portfolio to six hotels in operation and development.
Radisson Resort Plaza Skiathos will feature 84 rooms and suites, a restaurant and bar with a terrace, a swimming pool and wellness facilities, surrounded by lush greenery and just 100 meters from the seashore. The resort will bring the upscale Radisson brand to Greece, a brand that enables guests to focus on their work-life balance and find harmony in their travel experience. With nature-inspired design and unexpected delights, Radisson inspires the art of being in the moment. Radisson operates over 290 hotels in operation and under development, with key openings and signings mostly in Asia-Pacific and EMEA, making the brand a true global player in the upscale segment. Radisson Resort Plaza Skiathos is set to open in June 2022.
Radisson Blu Euphoria Resort, Mykonos will be the second five-star resort of the upper-upscale Radisson Blu brand in the Cyclades, joining the Radisson Blu Zaffron Resort, Santorini, and the fourth Radisson Blu hotel in Greece. Radisson Blu has been the largest upper-upscale brand in Europe for over ten years, with more than 400 hotels in operation worldwide. The hotels and resorts provide a full range of innovative products and services, delivering genuine and relevant guest experiences with a distinctive Yes I Can! attitude. The new resort in Mykonos will have 34 guest rooms in eight buildings, giving it an exclusive boutique resort feeling. Direct ocean views, infinity pools, private jacuzzis, wellness facilities, a restaurant and outdoor pool bar will complete the overall experience. The hotel is set to open in May 2022.
Radisson Hotel Group is proud to establish the first international ‘hard brands’ with a strong brand identity on both islands, similar to Santorini, where Radisson Blu also was the first international hard brand when it opened in August 2021.
“We’re extremely thrilled to expand our Greek resort portfolio as well as our overall presence in Greece in such desirable locations with HotelBrain Group, one of the leading hotel operators in the country. The signings are in line with our growing focus on resorts globally as well as our pragmatic approach towards conversions as we execute our strategy for Greece, not only in the main cities but also across the island and resort locations of the country. We thank HotelBrain for their trust and look forward to expanding our strategic relationship together”, says Elie Milky, Vice President Development at Radisson Hotel Group.
Panagiotis Paleologos, President and CEO of HotelBrain Group adds:
“We are delighted with our cooperation with Radisson, and we estimate that it will be further extended to other popular destinations around Greece, either through hotels already under our umbrella, or with upcoming projects. We trust that Greek tourism is one of world’s most powerful products, and Radisson’s brand upgrades it significantly.”
