Some interesting new developments  this month on the hotel front.

Following yesterday’s announcement of a new Park Inn hotel for Cape Town, Rezidor today announces the upscale Radisson Blu Safari Resort Kruger Park: The new built property featuring 120 rooms is scheduled to welcome the first guests in Q2 2013.

“This hotel will be the first internationally branded hotel within Kruger, and will clearly strengthen the Radisson Blu brand in South Africa”, said Rezidor’s President & CEO Kurt Ritter on the occasion of the Hospitality Investment Conference Africa (HICA) in Johannesburg. “At the same time, it adds a new segment to our successful Radisson Blu portfolio: We manage city- and business hotels, airport properties, beach- and ski resorts, and are delighted to now announce our very first safari resort”, adds Ritter.

The Radisson Blu Safari Resort Kruger Park will be located within the southern border of the Kruger National Park – along the famous Crocodile River 10 kilometres from the Malelane Gate.  Besides 104 rooms and 16 suites with private terraces, the resort will offer an all day dining restaurant, a typical “Boma” (an outdoor dining and entertainment area), a cigar bar and a pool bar and terrace. For guests combining business and leisure, the Radisson Blu will have 5 conference rooms – leisure facilities will include 2 swimming pools, a spa- and wellness centre on 350 square meters, a gym, game viewing Crocodile River decks, a kids club and an environmental awareness centre.
