Radisson Hotel Group continues to break new ground in Asia Pacific with the signing of an agreement for the Grand Papua Hotel, a member of Radisson Individuals – its inaugural hotel in Papua New Guinea.

Centrally located Port Moresby, overlooking the harbor and Coral Sea, the 16-storey Grand Papua Hotel had a strong reputation as being one of the country’s most popular places to stay. As a member of Radisson Individuals, Radisson Hotel Group’s newest affiliation brand, it will deliver to the standards of international hospitality while retaining its own distinct character and charm.

Grand Papua Hotel, a member of Radisson Individuals, features 156 spacious rooms and suites, all featuring contemporary amenities, comfortable bedding and views of the city, beach, harbor, or ocean. Guests staying on the Executive or Grand floors will also be able to access the 15th floor Executive Lounge, which provides complimentary refreshments, personalized services, and panoramic vistas, while a dedicated ladies’ floor offers additional safety and peace-of-mind for female travelers.

Guests will be able to unwind in style in the outdoor swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, soothing spa and hair salon. The poolside terrace creates a relaxing setting for daytime drinks and light bites, while the Grand Bar serves fresh beverages and convenient snacks throughout the day, and the Grand Brasserie promises memorable meals with a modern à la carte menu and wine list.

This landmark hotel is also one of the city’s leading venues for events. A selection of nine function rooms, ranging from intimate boardrooms to large, flexible spaces that can house up to 230 delegates, set the stage for a wide variety of corporate meetings and social occasions, including weddings.

As a member of Radisson Individuals, Grand Papua Hotel will be integrated into Radisson Hotel Group’s global platform, benefitting from the international awareness and experience, while also retaining its own unique identity. Each property in this curated collection is selected for its individual personality, giving globetrotters the chance to explore new parts of the world in properties that reflect the spirit of their locale, supported by the group’s “Yes I Can” service philosophy. The hotel will also join Radisson Rewards, the industry-leading loyalty program that offers exclusive benefits to millions of guests worldwide.

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome the Grand Papua Hotel into our rapidly expanding hotel portfolio in Asia Pacific. This is a prime example of how Radisson Individuals is enabling Radisson Hotel Group to enter emerging markets, while owners and developers can leverage our international expertise and systems. Grand Papua Hotel is a respected hotel in Port Moresby, and we look forward to working with the hotel to reach even greater success” said Katerina Giannouka, President, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group.
