BRUSSELS/DUBAI - November 14, 2017 - Radisson Blu, the iconic hotel brand driven by innovation and design, is proud to announce the opening of its first hotel in Ajman, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Located just a few minutes from the city center and close to the Hamriyah Free Zone, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Ajman is also home to the Emirates’ newest entertainment destination, with seven distinctive, diverse restaurants and bars to experience.
Mark Willis, Area Senior Vice President, Middle East, Turkey and Africa, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group said, “We are delighted to bring the iconic Radisson Blu brand to Ajman, and increase our presence across the northern Emirates. The UAE continues to be a key market for the Group, for both inbound and outbound travel. The UAE’s travel and tourism sector as a whole, continues to make an increasing contribution to the country’s GDP. We are pleased to be making our own contribution to this impressive growth with 11 new hotel openings projected in the UAE by 2019.”
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Ajman is accessible through the main highways connecting Ajman to Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah. The hotel is located in a new and upcoming area – Al Jurf – which is close to government ministries, universities, and hospitals, as well as the Hamriyah Free Zone.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Ajman offers upper-upscale, stylish accommodation with 148 guest rooms and suites, all designed with soothing color tones that reflect the desert sands of Ajman. The hotel upholds the Radisson Blu’s international design heritage with bespoke Arabian artwork and design reflected in the interiors.
One of the dining highlights is the signature restaurant – Nalukettu Royale – which is the only upscale restaurant in the UAE to serve authentic cuisine from the southern Indian state of Kerala. Radisson Blu’s Italian hotshot, Filini provides beautifully simple, home cooked cuisine in a relaxed and contemporary setting, and Larder offers a memorable Super Breakfast each morning. Mazaj is the hotel’s rooftop bar and lounge offering live entertainment.
Radisson Blu Hotel, Ajman’s meeting and events space features four spacious meeting rooms and a 315m2 ballroom strategically located by the pool.
