Rezidor is strengthening its presence in Africa with three new hotels in Nigeria: the Radisson Blu Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos (250 rooms), the Radisson Blu Hotel Abuja (200 rooms) and the Park Inn Abuja (125 rooms). The three hotels are all scheduled to open in 2012.

These signings bring our portfolio in the emerging market Africa to a solid business featuring more than 30 hotels with 7,500 rooms in operation and under development, and secure our position as one of the leading hotel operators on the continent, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.

The Radisson Blu Hotel Abuja and the Park Inn Abuja will be located at prime sites in the Maitama district, which is also home to various embassies and international companies.

The first class and full service Radisson Blu will offer 200 rooms, a restaurant and several bars (including a cigar bar), a ballroom, and a spa.

The mid market Park Inn hotel will comprise 125 spacious rooms, a restaurant, meeting rooms, and leisure facilities including a rooftop pool.

Abuja was built mostly in the 1980s and is considered Africas first master-planned city. It replaced Lagos as the capital in 1991 and is one of the most prosperous areas on the continent.

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos will be located on the Atlantic Ocean on Victoria Island, one of the citys most modern commercial areas where banks, petroleum companies and groups like IBM and Hewlett Packard have offices.

Besides 250 rooms which will all offer sea views, the property will comprise two restaurants, meeting facilities, and leisure areas including a spa and pool.

The property will be the second Radisson hotel in Lagos, Nigerias largest city and commercial centre complementing the Radisson Blu Hotel, Lagos which welcomes the first guests in 2010.
