Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 19 July 2010

Rezidor has signed its 8th property in Switzerland. The Radisson Blu Resort, Andermatt featuring 240 rooms is scheduled to open its doors in 2013.

It will be part of the project Andermatt Swiss Alps, a master development overseen by Orascom Development Holding AG, which will include six new hotels in the 4 and 5-star sector, some 490 apartments in 42 buildings and 25-30 villas. An 18-hole championship golf course and sport and commercial areas will complement the project which will turn Andermatt in an exclusive year-round holiday destination. For Andermatt Swiss Alps, Radisson Blu is the second hotel cooperation.

We are proud that we could convince a well known chain like Radisson Blu of our year-round destination Andermatt Swiss Alps, said Grard Jenni, Managing Director of Andermatt Swiss Alps AG, building company and 100%-owner of the new Radisson Blu Resort. The broad experience of our attractive business partner will certainly also guide our congress hotel in Andermatt to success.

Andermatt lies at the foot of the Gotthard Massif in Switzerland. Its ski facilities, renowned for excellent snow falls, will be upgraded and modernized resulting in 130 km of varying ranges of ski slopes to suit all levels. When slopes, golf and recreation no longer beckon, Andermatt is an ideal starting point for a variety of excursions. Lucerne and the Lake of Lucerne; the elegant metropolis of Zurich; Berne and its historic old town (UNESCO World heritage site); and the neighbouring canton of Ticino with its Mediterranean flair are only some of the famous sights of Switzerland.

The Radisson Blu Resort, Andermatt will be designed by the architects Burkhalter Sumi (Zurich). In two buildings with wooden faades it will comprise 240 keys regular guest rooms as well as spacious apartments ranging from 1 to 3 bedrooms.

In addition to a restaurant and bar, 1,700 m2 of conference space is planned as well as a multi-functional concert hall for up to 700 guests. A spa with an indoor swimming pool, retail shops, game room and childrens club are also planned.
