|Radisson Blu signs a new hotel & spa in Nida, Lithuania’s remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site|
Radisson Blu, the iconic hotel brand driven by innovation and design, is delighted to announce the signing of the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Nida Marina, Lithuania, strengthening its footprint in the Baltics. Radisson Blu already operates two hotels in Vilnius and one in Klaipeda.
The newly built resort hotel will be on the Curonian Spit – a 98km long curved sandy peninsula that separates the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea that was made a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2010. Located on the waterfront of the Nida marina, the hotel will overlook the Curonian Lagoon in the center of the Curonian Spit.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer of Carlson Rezidor said: “The Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Nida Marina will be Carlson Rezidor’s 5th hotel in Lithuania and the first five-star hotel on the Curonian Spit. We are incredibly proud to continue building on our leading position in the region with such a spectacular resort located on a UNESCO World Heritage site. We feel privileged to bring our award-winning, world class hospitality to a new destination, and to partner with UAB Marina Nida on this exciting new project.”
The Radisson Blu Hotel at Nida Marina will open its doors in 2019 with 93 rooms, a bar lounge situated in the lobby and a restaurant and terrace offering stunning views of the Curonian Lagoon. Guests will be able to enjoy extensive leisure & spa facilities, including an 18m indoor swimming-pool and a selection of high-end shops. The resort will also be quipped with meeting and event spaces to cater for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions. Other exclusive leisure facilities are also planned to be added, including boat mooring bays.
A spokesperson for UAB Marina Nida, owners of the new hotel said: “We are very proud and confident to partner with Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group as they have a strong experience in operating upper upscale and successful hotels in Lithuania and the Baltics region. Launching the first five-star hotel with a top international hotel management company will help raise the profile of tourism on the Curonian Spit. We are delighted to unveil to local and international guests the best and most beautiful sights and sounds of Lithuania.”
