Radisson Blu Chittagong Bay View, the first five-star hotel in the port city and the chain's second in Bangladesh, will open its doors to customers on April 14, marking the Bangla New Year.
Humayun Bakht, managing director of Radisson Chittagong, owned by Sena Hotel Development Ltd, made the announcement during a corporate night held on the hotel premises on Sunday.
The hotel aims to emerge as a perfect base for businesspeople and tourists during their trips to the region.
Radisson will be the premier choice for leisure and business, offering “modern products and best services” in the area, said Geir Sikko, its general manager.
Radisson's location is convenient as it is in the country's premiere port city, which is an important business hub, and also serves as the gateway to adventure tourism in the southeastern region, including Cox's Bazar and Bandarban.
The 22-floor hotel offers 241 bed rooms, ranging from 36 to 300 square metres, and has four international restaurants, three bars, two banquet halls of more than 3,000 square metres, a swimming pool, an outdoor tennis court and a spa centre.
