Rezidor Hotel Group has announced that it will open a new hotel on Gran Canaria, Spain in 2012. The Gran Canaria Radisson BLU Residence will be a short distance from the village of Arguineguin and contain 144 apartments, all offering a sea view.

Rezidor Hotel Group operates more than 190 Radisson BLU hotels in the Middle East, Africa and Europe, including Radisson BLU hotels in Oslo, London, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Gothenburg.

"We are very pleased with the continued growth in Spain, where we recently opened the first Radisson BLU hotel in Madrid," says Kurt Ritter, president and CEO of Rezidor Hotel Group. "This opening also underlines our commitment to an ambitious growth of our young and stylish portfolio of hotels."

"We are pleased that we can expand our cooperation with Rezidor and are confident that we will provide increased value to the Gran Canaria tourist industry, " added Lars Wenaas, owner of the new hotel.

Gran Canaria is one of Europe's southernmost outposts and is located just 150 kilometers from the north west coast of Africa. With a mild year round climate, Gran Canaria is a popular holiday destination for travellers to Spain and the island is famous for its idyllic beaches and stunning landscape.

The new Radisson BLU Residence will be located on the south coast of Gran Canaria along the oceanfront, near the popular village of Arguineguin. This is one of the quietest places along the coast, offering a particularly favorable climate.

The hotel will offer a modern recreation area with pool, tennis court and a complete spa. At the hotel customers will also find five meeting rooms and a separate section for those who need to work while on vacation.
