Durban, Livingstone and Lahore all make the cut in our roundup of Radisson Hotel Group’s most significant 2022 hotel openings, reflecting how this global hospitality giant’s continuing to expand rapidly across Africa and South Asia.

Radisson Blu Hotel Durban Umhlanga

In partnership with Oceans Umhlanga and Edison Property Group, Radisson Blu Hotel Durban Umhlanga is set to launch in early 2022. This under-construction hotel will form part of the 90,000 sq m Oceans Umhlanga high-end complex, alongside apartments and a shopping mall. Architronic, Ruben Reddy Architects and Elphick Proome Architects are behind the architectural design, with LVT Architecture – Eastern Cape looking after the interiors of the public areas and restaurants.

The landmark hospitality scheme will house 207 guestrooms and suites, along with an impressive array of amenities, such as an all-day dining restaurant, lobby bar and coffeeshop, rooftop outdoor bar and terrace, and business-class lounge. Guests will also be able to make use of its spa, gym and outdoor pool, and hold functions in 1,200 sq m of meeting and event space – including one of Durban’s largest banqueting halls.

Late 2022 will see Radisson gain a foothold at the Unesco World Heritage-listed Victoria Falls. In April 2021, the hospitality company announced the signing of Radisson Blu Resort Mosi-oa-Tunya in partnership with owner National Pension Scheme Authority, and the property’s currently being built at a riverside site in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, close to the famous falls and 5 km south of the city of Livingstone.

Guests will be able to unwind in the spa and swimming pool, make use of the gym, and network across stylish event space encompassing meeting rooms, boardrooms and a ballroom measuring more than 500 sq m in size.
