Radisson SAS to open in Jersey

24 Oct 2007 by Mark Caswell
Hotel chain Radisson SAS opens its latest UK property, The Radisson SAS Waterfront Hotel in Jersey on November 1.

The four-star hotel will be the only property on the island to have views over the marina and direct access to the beach, and is one of the first international chains to locate in Jersey. Until now, apart from the three-star Best Western, Jersey has mainly been home to individual guesthouses and hotels.

The Radisson SAS Waterfront hotel will have 195 bedrooms equipped with flatscreen LCD TVs and air-conditioning, five meeting rooms, business centre, restaurant and bar, 386sqm of health facilities including fitness centre, sauna and treatment rooms, and free high-speed internet access will be available throughout the premises (as with all Radisson SAS hotels). Said Hamish Reid, general manager of the Jersey Conference Bureau:

"With several multi-million pound investments, Jersey is experiencing growing popularity in the meetings market with over 300 UK events each year choosing Jersey as their destination. The Radisson SAS will combine the service, expertise and space tailored to business travel and will add a new option for events in the 200-delegate market, helping to grow the UK and European markets for the Island."

Business travellers will find the east wing of the hotel designed to accommodate them, while the west side will be devoted to the main public and leisure areas.

In other news the Rezidor Hotel Group, owners of the Radisson SAS brand, has announced that its forthcoming Bordeaux property will form part of the luxury Regent portfolio of hotels. It had originally been planned to reopen the former Grand Hotel of Bordeaux as a four-star Radisson SAS property, but following extensive restoration the decision has been made to market the hotel as a five-star Regent property.

The hotel is due to open by the end of 2007, and will feature 150 rooms and suites, combining "the classical style of the XVIII and XIX centuries with modern eclectic luxury and state-of-the-art technology", as well as a 1,000sqm spa. The Regent Bordeaux will join properties in Berlin, Shanghai and Singapore among others to receive the Regent moniker.
