Seller: Lionel Vandecasteele, a representative of Twin Promotion, the resort’s owner, said: “It’s a pleasure to continue our long-standing and successful relationship with Radisson Hotel Group, and to bring one of its renowned brands to Sangatte Blériot-Plage in France.
The local hotel market has been performing strongly in recent years, and there’s currently a gap for a resort property with access to extensive leisure facilities. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests and providing them with amazing experiences.”
Buyer: Radisson Hotel Group has signed for Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage in France, marking the Radisson brand’s debut in the country.
Sangatte Blériot-Plage is a small and charming seaside destination that’s increasingly popular with travellers, both for its beach facing out onto the Channel and its easy access to the Eurotunnel, linking it to Western Europe’s major capital cities.
With its proximity to the Eurotunnel and connections to the Eurostar, Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage will be simple to reach by car, train or ferry.
The seafront hotel will house six suites, along with a restaurant and bar, a spa, a fitness centre, an indoor swimming pool and two meeting rooms.
Executive vice president and chief development officer, Radisson Hotel Group, Elie Younes spoke on the project: “We’re delighted to be bringing the first Radisson branded property to France.
Calais and the surrounding areas are undergoing a major transformation to attract more tourists and – with few international operators already in Sangatte – we are looking to be first movers in what will be a strong growth market.”
THPT Comment: Shocked that this is the Radisson brand’s first hotel in France…and a brave first move with Sangatte’s history of refugee camps.
