Carlson Hotels has signed an agreement to manage a new-build Radisson Plaza Resort in one of China’s most popular holiday-resort destinations, Huizhou.

Located on a spectacular beach front, the Radisson Plaza Resort Huizhou will have 300 guestrooms and is scheduled to open in the first half of 2012.


“In Asia Pacific, Radisson is the number one, fastest growing upscale hotel brand. This resort will create an impressive foothold for the brand in the southeast of China, as we continue to grow the brand in key destinations across the region,” says Jean-Marc Busato, managing director, Carlson Hotels, Asia Pacific.

The Radisson Plaza Resort Huizhou is one of four hotel-management agreements being announced by Carlson Hotels in China this week. (One of the other three hotels the company will manage will be the new 254-room Park Plaza Chengdu South, scheduled to open by the end of this year.)

“Huizhou is a popular weekend destination for inbound travellers from Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Hong Kong. We are confident that this hotel will attract a combination of international as well as domestic travellers from northern China and beyond,” says Zhao Xiao Xiong, chairman of Huizhou Hai Chen Real Estate Co. Ltd., the hotel owner.

The Radisson Plaza Resort Huizhou is due to open in 2012. It is located next to the beach on a 16-kilometre-long bay which boasts a scenic, mountainous backdrop. Carlson Hotels will manage the new resort

Located along the Da Ya Bay at Huizhou, one of the largest coastal cities in southeast Guangdong province, the upscale Radisson Plaza Resort Huizhou will be located on a magnificent bay with a 16 kilometre natural coastline, set against a scenic mountainous backdrop.

The property will feature an all-day dining restaurant and a Chinese restaurant; a lobby bar and club lounge; and a 1,000-square-metre grand ballroom catering to all meeting and event requests.

Guests seeking leisure and recreational facilities can make use of the hotel’s day spa, as well as a health club featuring an indoor swimming pool. The resort is also in close proximity to a 27-hole golf course.

The Radisson Plaza Resort Huizhou is surrounded by popular local sights and attractions such as Turtle Island, the Huizhou West Lake and Luofu Mountain.
