BRUSSELS, Belgium, 2018-Dec-22 — /Travel PR News/ — Radisson Hospitality AB, publicly listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Sweden and part of the Radisson Hotel Group, is proud to announce the signing of its first Radisson Collection hotel in Turkey, in Bodrum on the country’s southwest coast. The new agreement with Turkey-based construction and hospitality company Ant Aspat Yapı ve Turizm A.Ş. increases the Radisson Hotel Group’s portfolio in Turkey to 25 hotels and more than 4,600 rooms in operation and under development. Radisson Collection Resort & SPA Bodrum is scheduled to open its doors in 2021.

Situated on the stunning Turkish Riviera, Radisson Collection Resort & SPA, Bodrum is set to become a prestigious tourist destination. It’s part of an exciting resort development that blends authentic Mediterranean architecture with European design aesthetic, and will feature a high-end retail offering, residential housing and a private marina.

Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We’re thrilled to strengthen our presence in Turkey with the introduction of Radisson Collection, our premium lifestyle brand. Bodrum is fondly known as the Turkish St Tropez, and this unique location is the perfect complement to the Radisson Collection with its amazing natural environment and its status as one of the most popular tourism hotspots in Turkey. We’re pleased to see the positive rebound in the Turkish tourism sector and are confident in its future outlook – especially with the increase in international tourist arrivals to Turkey, in particular from the traditional source markets of Russia, Germany and the UK.”

Mehmet Okay, Chairman of Ant Aspat Yapı ve Turizm A.Ş. said: “We’re pleased to strengthen our long-term partnership with Radisson Hotel Group, one of the world’s largest hotel groups. We’re immensely proud to be developing what we believe will become a landmark resort destination in Turkey, overlooking the Bodrum Peninsula with excellent leisure facilities as part of a development that showcases premium retail, vacation homes and a private marina.”

Radisson Collection Resort & SPA Bodrum will feature 120 luxurious rooms and suites, offering panoramic views of the Aegean Sea. The rooms will open in two phases, initially with 80 rooms and with the remaining 40 rooms opening in the second phase, 12 months later. The first-class leisure facilities will include a spa that covers 1,150sqm, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and direct access to a private sandy beach. For dining, guests will have the choice of an international restaurant or al fresco dining at the pool terrace bar.
