Radisson RED hotel which is going to be the first in Africa is set to open at the V&A Waterfront’s newly revamped Silo District, Cape Town in the third quarter of 2017.
This is a spectacular initiative as RED hotels was successfully launched in Brussels, Belgium, and Minneapolis, in the US, and with RED hotels in Campinas, Brazil, and Glasgow, Scotland, soon to follow, plans to settle its 252-room hotel in Silo Six at the waterfront, next to the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, which will open on September 27 this year.
Cape Town Radisson RED Hotel V&A Waterfront curator Dale Simpson confirmed the news and said that Radisson RED is set to ignite the African hospitality experience with state-of-the-art facilities.
“Radisson RED is set to ignite the African hospitality experience; it is going to be a revolution. From keyless entry to multifunctional social spaces, we have reinvented everything. We have made new rules,” said Mr. Dale Simpson.
The new development will boast a fully equipped gym and four events and games studios for up to 90 guests, as well as super-fast free Wi-Fi and 24/7 entertainment tech throughout the property. It will also allow pets under 8 kg and this will be a plus for pet lovers.
There will be a RED Roof which will offer an “early to late hangout” space to customers with a pool and views of Table Mountain, while food and drinks will be offered at the OUIBar and Ktchn.
“The response to the launch of these properties has been overwhelming and we have no doubt that Cape Town RED will be embraced by locals and unshackled global travellers alike,” Simpson concluded.
