The Rezidor Hotel Group Opens the 189-room Radisson Blu Resort,
Gran Canaria on the Spanish Island of Gran Canaria

June 1, 2012
- The Rezidor Hotel Group has opened their very first hotel on the Spanish holiday island of Gran Canaria: the Radisson Blu Resort, Gran Canaria featuring 189 rooms. It offers an outstanding waterfront location on the island’s south western coast, near the village of Arguineguín; ca. 40 minutes away from Las Palmas.

Each of the spacious rooms and suites boasts its own private balcony with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and breathtaking sunsets. With sleek marble flooring, stylish modern furniture and sumptuously comfortable bedding, every guest will enjoy an especially lavish island resort experience. Accessible rooms and amenities are also available. The interior design has been conceived and developed by Sias Contract, a prestigious Norwegian studio.

"We have tried to escape from uniformity, creating different rooms and apartments which range from the most classical style to the most contemporaneous, with an atmosphere of controlled luxury", says Cathrine Nordhus, who, together with Harry Ronneberg, has been responsible for the project. And she adds that "the Scandinavian design coexists with a tribute to light, colours and lifestyle of the Canary Islands".

Guests at the Radisson Blu Resort, Gran Canaria don’t have to leave the resort to sample some of the island’s best cuisine: Dining right by the ocean’s edge, the can choose from an appetizing array of local and international menus at “La Canaria” restaurant. The “Beach Bar” at the hotel’s outdoor pool serves light snacks, and the top floor terrace lounge stylish drinks.

The exotic, beach-side grounds of the Radisson Blu Resort, Gran Canaria provide the perfect play-space for guests of all ages. The vast outdoor leisure area features a garden, a gift shop, a boutique, a supermarket, salt and freshwater swimming pools, and a kids club. The resort also offers visitors the chance to unwind with a range of indoor and outdoor sports facilities, including tennis courts, a paddleball court and a beach tennis/volleyball court. A full service spa featuring the famous treatments by Institute Guinot (Paris) and well-equipped fitness centre ensure that every aspect of guests’ total wellbeing is taken care of.

The Radisson Blu Resort Gran Canaria comprises over 200 square meters of meeting space; distributed on 6 meeting rooms, all of which are equipped with the most modern technology to accommodate presentations and all kind of conferences.
