Rezidor to open Park Inn hotels in Mideast
Dubai, August 14, 2007
The Rezidor Hotel Group will open its mid market hotel brand, Park Inn, in Egypt in November.
It also plans to open two Park Inn hotels in Saudi Arabia – Al Khobar and Olaya - and one in Muscat, Oman.
As of November 2007, the ‘Golden Resort by Rezidor’ in Egypt will be named Park Inn Sharm El Sheikh Resort and will have an extension of 203 rooms, bringing the total number to 401.
This first resort property within the Park Inn portfolio is located on the beautiful protected area of Nabq Bay, only 10 minutes from the Sharm El Sheikh Airport.
Jean-Marc Busato, area vice president of The Rezidor Hotel group said: “This is the first Park Inn property that will open in the Middle East providing efficient, uncomplicated service which will result in a hassle-free stay, underlining the brand’s aim to attract not only business but also leisure travellers.”
“We already successfully operate a full service, first class Radisson SAS hotel in Sharm El Sheikh and with this addition we will be able to segment carefully our guests and services.”
Park Inn Sharm El Sheikh Resort will have two all-day restaurants, two indoor bars and two swimming pools. The health club will offer saunas, steam rooms, massages and beauty treatments complementing the access to a white, sandy beach with a beach bar. Aqua Park is also scheduled to open before the end of this year with numerous slides for children and adults, six swimming pools, wave pool and a lazy river. Entertainment facilities will include a shopping mall. – TradeArabia News Service
