Rezidor latest group heading to Marrakech
Radisson Blu Hotel on the cards for 2011
Marrakech is rapidly becoming the hottest hotel destination, with Rezidor following the likes of Mandarin Oriental, Anantara, The Address and Kempinski into the Moroccan capital.
The group will open a 204-room property – named Radisson Blu Hotel, Marrakech Carre Eden – in the fashionable Gueliz commercial and residential district in 2011.
“This hotel will be a unique 5 star city resort in Marrakech, and, along with the Radisson Blu brand, reaffirms our commitment to making the city an exceptional destination for both business and leisure travellers,” said Mohamed Yacoubi of Actif Invest, the tourism and real estate investment fund behind the hotel.
The property will be Rezidor’s third Moroccan offering, with Radisson Resorts already unveiled for Tangier and Saidia.
“This hotel and its shopping mall will be a distinguished attraction in the Gueliz district, and will be a major component of our tourism asset portfolio,” said Rezidor president and CEO Kurt Ritter.
