Radisson Hotel Group has announced the debut of Park Inn and Suites by Radisson in India in Guruvayur, Kerala. The signing comes within a month of the brand’s launch in the country and further strengthens the Group’s leading position in South Asia where it has over 100 hotels in operation in 60+ locations. This is the first signing as a part of Radisson Hotel Group’s strategic partnership with Ruptub Solutions Private Limited (RSPL) to develop a 150-hotel-strong network of Park Inn and Suites by Radisson in South and East India.
Park Inn and Suites by Radisson is developed specifically for the Indian market and is customized to fuel Radisson Hotel Group’s next phase of growth in tier 2 to 5 markets with a clear focus on value maximization for its stakeholders. The brand’s essence is based on ‘Inviting Modern Comfort’ ensuring that guests feel welcome, valued, and looked after.
The 91-room hotel is expected to open in Q2, 2024, and is currently in its advanced stage of construction. It is strategically located near the famous Guruvayur Temple, which is a well-known pilgrim destination in India. The city is a short, scenic drive from Kerala’s main hubs, including Kochi and Thrissur, and receives approximately 50,000 visitors every day.
The hotel’s comfortable and spacious rooms will deliver guests a warm and heartfelt hospitality experience in a modern yet familiar home-like setting. When open, the hotel will be equipped with a swimming pool, social spaces, a welcome corner, a fitness center, services like free WiFi, and signature breakfast options for delivering a holistic experience to guests.
“India is one of our largest strategic markets and the development of new and coming locations remains core to the Group’s next phase of growth strategy in India. We are thrilled to strengthen our presence in the beautiful state of Kerala with the signing of our first hotel under the Park Inn and Suites by Radisson brand. We remain committed to our promise of identifying and converting high-quality, quick-to-market opportunities to target the development of a 150-hotel-strong network of hotels under the brand over the next decade with RSPL as our partner,” said Zubin Saxena, Managing Director and Vice President Operations, South Asia, Radisson Hotel Group.
“The core thesis of our strategic partnership with Radisson Hotel Group for launching Park Inn and Suites by Radisson was based on the massive opportunity that small towns of India offer. The signing of the first property under this brand in Guruvayur is the perfect validation of that thesis. It is also a demonstration of the combined strength of Radisson’s brand and RSPL’s wide market presence, which will bring hundreds of such properties under the fold of this brand in the years to come. We are just getting started!” said Sidharth Gupta, Founder and Director of Ruptub Solutions.
“It’s a matter of great pride for us to be the first hotel under the brand Park Inn and Suites by Radisson, especially in a location like Guruvayur which is close to our heart. We are delighted to partner with Radisson Hotel Group and Ruptub Solutions Pvt Ltd to offer a branded product with the promise of quality accommodation,” said Sundaran Bhaskaran, Managing Partner, Sreepathi Durshan Hotels.
Tailor-made for the Indian market and adding to the diversity of RHG’s brand offering in the country, Park Inn and Suites by Radisson will deliver a warm and heartfelt hospitality experience in a modern yet familiar home-like setting. Looking ahead, the Group intends to catalyze the Park Inn and Suites by Radisson brand by way of master franchise, collaboration, and brand development agreements with high-quality hotel development partners.
