Speaking about the property Elie Younes, executive vice president & chief development officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Africa remains the most exciting continent for growth and evolution. According to WTTC, Ethiopia experienced the ‘highest tourism growth in the world’ in recent years, with over 45% increase. Such growth justifies more hotel developments in the country and we are pleased to introduce our fourth hotel in the market.”

The Radisson Hotel Bahir Dar will be located on the shores of Lake Tana, Ethiopia’s largest lake.

Owner of the hotel, Tilksew Gedamu Ayele, CEO of Picolo Abay International Business Plc, said: “We are proud to be partnering with Radisson Hotel Group to open Bahir Dar’s first hotel with a top international brand in the city.
