Carlson Panorama Hospitality, a joint venture between Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and Panorama Group, announced the signing of a management contract for Radisson Medan, in North Sumatra, Indonesia. As part of the rebranding exercise, the existing property will be extensively renovated under a US$5 million property improvement plan. The hotel will remain open throughout the renovations and launched as Radisson Medan in the second half of 2016.

Radisson Medan will be the 5th Carlson Rezidor hotel scheduled to open in Indonesia after Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, Radisson Golf & Convention Center Batam, Park Inn by Radisson Lampung and Radisson Jakarta Cengkareng. Medan is the 4th largest city in Indonesia, and within a 1-hour flight radius of Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

Radisson Medan is a 219-room hotel located in the heart of downtown Medan. Conference and meetings facilities will include meeting rooms and a ballroom and the hotel’s recreational facilities include a swimming pool and a gym. Food and beverage options will include an all-day dining restaurant and a lobby bar.

“We are proud to be planting the Radisson flag in Medan. As the economic and commercial hub of northern Indonesia, Medan is an important destination for domestic business travelers,” said Thorsten Kirschke, president, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. “Radisson Medan is a great addition to our portfolio in Indonesia where we are continuing to grow with our long-term strategic partner, Panorama Group,” he added.

In 2013, Carlson Rezidor signed a strategic partnership with Panorama Group, an integrated group of  companies focusing on tourism, transportation, hospitality and related businesses in Indonesia, to develop Carlson Rezidor hotels in attractive tourist destinations and top-tier Indonesian cities including Bali, Jakarta and Surabaya, as well as emerging destinations  such as Bandung, Bintan, Lombok, Makassar and Palembang.

Radisson Medan is owned by VIGOUR Group, a diversified family business that has interests in agribusiness, hotels, consumer goods and alcoholic beverages. “This is a part of VIGOUR Group’s strategy to enhance our hotel portfolio. Radisson is a globally recognised brand and we are confident that the rebranding, coupled with Carlson Rezidor’s management expertise, will drive hotel performance and deliver a strong return on our investment,” said Philander Jong, member of the family, Commissioner of VIGOUR Group and Director of the group’s hotel arm PT. Aiho Indah.

In Asia Pacific, there are currently 13 Radisson hotels in operation and 21 more in the pipeline.
