Bonjour, la mer!: Radisson expands in France with new location on northern coast [Download construction report]
Radisson announces signing of Radisson Resort Sangatte Bériot-Plage, marking the brand’s debut in France
This development marks the Radisson brand’s debut in the country, where it will join a portfolio that currently boasts 16 hotels and more than 2,800 rooms in operation or under development.
The property is situated on the scenic Opal coast in the Pas-de-Calais area.
Sangatte Blériot-Plage itself is a small and charming seaside destination, one that’s becoming increasingly popular with travelers, providing as it does a golden beach facing out onto the Channel along with easy access to the Eurotunnel, which links it to western Europe’s other major capital cities.
The entire region has long been popular with tourists, and international visitors in particular make up more than a quarter of those journeying to a destination that’s quickly growing in both cachet and demand.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, had this to say: “We’re delighted to be bringing the first Radisson branded property to France. Calais and the surrounding areas are undergoing a major transformation to attract more tourists (including international visitors), and – with few international operators already in Sangatte – we’re looking to be first movers in what will be a strong growth market.”
Scheduled to open in 2021, the new-build Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plagewill feature 115 rooms, including six suites.
Guests will be able to enjoy quality dishes or super cocktails at the resort’s restaurant & bar – which will also feature an amazing panoramic terrace that’s sure to draw a crowd in the summer months.
Other leisure facilities include a spa, a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool, with business travelers catered for by two meeting rooms.
The resort’s location, however, remains the main attraction. Its seafront locale offers guests direct access to the beach, making it simple to relax in the sun or enjoy a bracing stroll depending on the season.
As part of the established Eco-Village development, the Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage will be within walking distance of a wide range of beach activities, shops and even a golf course.
Lionel Vandecasteele, a representative of Twin Promotion, the resort’s owner, said, “It’s a pleasure to continue our longstanding and successful relationship with Radisson Hotel Group, and to bring one of its renowned brands to Sangatte Blériot-Plage in France.”
“The local hotel market has been performing strongly in recent years, and there’s currently a gap for a resort property with access to extensive leisure facilities. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests and providing them with amazing experiences,” he added.
With its proximity to the Eurotunnel and connections to Eurostar, the Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage will be simple to reach by car, train or ferry. Guests will also enjoy easy access to Calais, Lille and Paris – and can even travel to or from London or Brussels in approximately an hour.
