Rezidor plans 5 more hotels in South Africa
International hotel management group Rezidor SAS Hospitality, which opened its first Park Inn in Cape Town’s Greenmarket Square this week, soon plans to add at least another five hotels in various SA cities to its portfolio.
Along with its joint venture partner in SA, Tokyo Sexwale’s Mvelaphanda, the group hopes to establish a presence in Johannesburg, Sandton, Durban and Port Elizabeth, according to district GM, Marko Hytonen. Rezidor manages the Radisson SAS, Regent Hotels, Country Inn and Park Inn brands throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Cape Town has been the springboard for Rezidor’s entry into SA, and it now has two hotels in the city, the newly opened and refurbished Park Inn, previously the Holiday Inn, and the Radisson Hotel Waterfront, owned by a consortium of South African, German and Singaporean investors.
