As part of a global rebrand, Radisson Hotel Group is opening multiple new properties in the region. The rebrand is tied to a five-year strategy to become the world’s third-largest hotel group operator.

The industrial port city of Ningbo in China’s Zhejiang province will soon welcome a 230-room Radisson property in the city’s Beilun district. The hotel will be part of INSHOW City, a commercial complex that will feature a nautical-themed city light show. There are also two 800-sqm ballrooms and six function rooms.

A new 218-room Radisson Blu opens on Vietnam’s Phu Quoc island in July, nestled along Truong Beach on its sunset-facing west coast. A potential venue for incentive trips, the resort is a mere five-minute drive from the international airport, which now services long-haul flights from Europe.

A new Park Inn by Radisson in Malaysia’s administrative capital of Putrajaya also marked the growth of the Park Inn brand. The property will become a key element of De Centrum City, a RM10bil (US$2.56 bil), 40-hectare mini-city with a shopping centre, apartments and offices.
