DUBAI—Rezidor, a member of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, will bring the lifestyle select brand Radisson Red to Dubai with the 171-room Radisson Red Dubai Silicon Oasis, which is expected to open in Q3 2018.
“Dubai has always been an important destination for our growth, and its continued development opens up new opportunities for our expansion. Our total portfolio in Dubai currently stands at 13 hotels with more than 2,600 rooms,” said Elie Younes, EVP & chief development officer of Rezidor. “Furthermore, it is even a greater privilege to see the brand being launched in partnership with the Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority, a government entity of Dubai, further committed to grow the city as a regional business hub with a focus on innovation, technology and entrepreneurship.”
The Radisson Red Dubai Silicon Oasis will be located 8.7 miles from Dubai International Airport and 20.5 miles from Al Maktoum Airport. In addition to signature dining outlets, the hotel will also include an outdoor terrace and a number of reading rooms. It will be at the center of the Silicon Park, with a promenade of various food and restaurant outlets, along with a business center and dedicated meeting facilities connected to the property.
“We are pleased to welcome Rezidor to Dubai Silicon Oasis and to be the inaugural footstep for the Radisson Red brand in Dubai. Silicon Park is set to become the first smart city project to take shape within Dubai Silicon Oasis, and we are confident that its technological advancements will create great synergies with the Radisson Red concept and its focus on technology,” said Mohammed Alzarooni, vice chairman & CEO of Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority. “We are also confident that the smart solutions that Silicon Park will offer combined with the strategic location of Dubai Silicon Oasis, will allow the hotel to offer its customers a unique experience within a community that allows people to work, live and play. We look forward to working closely with Rezidor to ensure the hotel brand and experience are fully expressed, for a mutually beneficial completion.”
