We are very pleased to partner with OOO Stability, on this very exciting project and unlock additional value for our guests, owners and other stakeholders”, added Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer of Rezidor.
OOO Stability, owner of the Radisson Blu Hotel Bishkek said: “We are delighted to partner with Carlson Rezidor for the opening of the very first Radisson Blu hotel in Bishkek, and very proud to support the economic development of Kyrgyzstan. Carlson Rezidor has already proven its capacity to operate successful properties in Central Asia and is internationally renowned for its service standards.”
Christian Walter, Managing Director at PKF hotelexperts in Vienna, who advised the owners in the operator search added: “We believe that Bishkek has considerable potential as a capital city location, but also as a gateway to other destinations in Kyrgyzstan. Adding a branded hotel property with international quality standards will both help develop the destination on a global level and be a showcase of first class hospitality that the local population can be proud of.”
Kyrgyzstan has some of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world, and is ideal for trekking, riding and bike tours. The recent introduction of a visa-free policy for citizens from 44 countries for up to 60 days makes Kyrgyzstan a new attractive destination for both vacationers and business travelers.
