Radisson opens hotels in popular Polish resort destinations
Radisson Hotel Group is steadily expanding its footprint in Poland with the addition of two new properties in well-known resort destinations.
Radisson has opened two more hotels in Poland, growing its presence to 14 properties across the country.
We find out more about these elegant new properties.
Radisson Blu Hotel, Sopot
Boasting 219 rooms, the newbuild Radisson Blu Hotel, Sopot is set in the popular Baltic seaside resort town of Sopot, which has been known for its healing mineral water springs for several hundred years. The hotel is only 250 metres from the beach and close to gardens and recreational areas where guests can relax and rest, while the vibrant cities of Gdańsk and Gdynia are also nearby.
Inside, the property is inspired by nature and offers generous, modern facilities. They include a spa and wellness centre, a restaurant with its own vegetable and herb garden, and a pavilion with a concert hall for up to 1,000 guests, the largest of its kind in the region.
Katarzyna Dowgiałło-Edel, general manager at Radisson Blu Hotel, Sopot, said: “We believe that Radisson Blu Hotel, Sopot will be a vibrant resort throughout the year as one of the most prominent meeting and cultural venues within the tri-city metropolis.”
“The infrastructure and facilities we are offering within the hotel complex can be used and enjoyed not only by our clients, but also by local residents who are looking to experience our extensive leisure and MICE offering.”
Radisson Hotel Szklarska Poręba
Set in the Giant Mountains, meanwhile, the new Radisson Hotel Szklarska Poręba aims to offer Scandinavian-inspired hospitality to its guests. The 104 rooms and apartments embrace the local mountain atmosphere and grant spectacular views of the mountains as well as the Jelenia Góra Valley.
The hotel’s à la carte Spice & Herb restaurant serves both international and local cuisine, paired with wines from Polish vineyards. There’s a 24/7 gym, plus a spa and wellness centre offering everything guests need to stay fit and relax during their stay such as a pool with an outdoor slide, outdoor all-year jacuzzi with a view of the mountains, saunas, steam baths and a tepidarium.
Jan Wróblewski, co-founder of Zdrojowa Invest & Hotels Group, said: “With this new hotel under the international Radisson brand in Szklarska Poręba, we are once again a pioneer in the market, and this is a continuation of our strategy of strengthening our leadership position in resorts.”
Radisson’s ambitious plans in Poland
Poland’s travel and tourism sector has witnessed several years of continual growth. As a result, high-profile global names like Radisson are increasingly looking to build their presence in the country, although longer term it’ll be interesting to see what effect Covid19 has on these ambitious expansion plans.
“As part of our five-year strategic plan, Radisson Hotel Group is developing extensively in Poland and our new openings in Sopot and Szklarska Poręba are extremely valuable additions to our portfolio,” concluded Yilmaz Yildirimlar, area senior vice president of the Area Central & Eastern Europe, Russia and Turkey for Radisson Hotel Group.
