Radisson Hotel Group has announced the signing of agreements for two new hotels in Islamabad, Pakistan, in a bid to expand its presence in the South Asian market. The two hotels, the Radisson Blu Hotel & Residences, Islamabad, and the Radisson Hotel Islamabad Multi Gardens, are expected to open in the next three years. Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan, is a modern metropolis situated in the foothills of the Margalla Hills. Despite being a bustling city, Islamabad retains a serene and peaceful ambiance, making it a perfect destination for travelers seeking a blend of modernity and tradition.
The Radisson Blu Hotel & Residences, Islamabad, will be part of a mixed-use development near the Islamabad International Airport, on the main Srinagar Highway in Mumtaz City. The development will comprise a hotel with 432 rooms, suites, and serviced apartments, a shopping mall with retail and entertainment options, corporate business floors, lounges for airline crew and executives, and a banqueting area. The hotel will offer Radisson Blu’s signature service and stylish spaces.
The Radisson Hotel Islamabad Multi Gardens will be part of the J7 Emporium mixed-use complex and will include 165 rooms, including four executive suites. The hotel will feature Radisson’s signature natural surroundings and Scandinavian-inspired hospitality, allowing guests to find harmony in their travel experience. The J7 Emporium is situated in the heart of Islamabad and is a quick 20-minute drive from the Islamabad International Airport, making it an ideal location for a wide array of travelers.
Elie Milky, Vice President Development, Pakistan, the Middle East, Greece, and Cyprus, Radisson Hotel Group, said, “We are thrilled to execute our development strategy in Pakistan by bringing two of our brands to Islamabad and providing guests with world-class hospitality experiences in this dynamic city. Pakistan is a rapidly growing market with tremendous potential, and we are confident that our globally recognized brands and service standards will resonate with business and leisure travelers alike in the country.”
Yaseen Mehsud, CEO, of J7 Group, said, “We are very excited to establish a long-term mutually beneficial relationship with the Radisson Hotel Group. It is our vision to bring top-class hospitality to Pakistan to cater to the demands of the growing travel and tourism industry in the country. We feel that there is great potential in the hospitality segment in Pakistan, and the demand for international standard hospitality services remains untapped. The J7 Group remains laser-focused on delivering this need through this strategic partnership.”
The Radisson Hotel Group and the J7 Group plan to collaborate on many more developments in other urban cities of Pakistan in the future.
