Radisson Individuals expanded with over 20 properties in Italy, France, Poland, and Thailand. In India, Radisson Hotel Group launched its first Radisson Individuals Retreats with the opening of Rakkh Resort, a member of Radisson Individuals Retreats, offering opportunities for experiences. Following the opening of three new prizeotel properties in 2022, the group will focus on expanding its signature midscale lifestyle brand further in 2023.

Resorts have become relevant to the business, owners, and guests.

The year 2022 has been strong for Radisson Hotel Group in Asia Pacific with 40 percent more signings in the region compared to 2021. In China, Radisson Hotel Group signed and opened 80 hotels and anticipates further growth with the reopening of the market, as it aims to double its Chinese portfolio over the next five years. Elsewhere in APAC, the group established new, dedicated Business Units in Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta, and Sydney to support owners and partners. Radisson Hotel Group entered an alliance in India with Ruptub Solutions Private Limited to add 150 hotels to its portfolio under the midscale brand, Park Inn & Suites by Radisson, and signed its first property in Q4.

We remain agile, tenacious, and innovative to respond to the evolving market conditions in 2023, which will bring exciting challenges and opportunities.”
