Belgium, Brussels. November 13, 2019

Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce the signing of the first Radisson branded hotel in Germany. Located in the 800-year-old heart of the Hanseatic university city, directly in the seaport of Rostock, the property is set to open in Q3-2022. The new Radisson Hotel Rostock strengthens the group´s position in the region as part of its strategy to roll out further brands in Germany, a key focus country for our expansion with a remarkable development profile.

As a destination with more than two million overnight visitors each year - while featuring maritime and high-tech industries, as well as the University of Rostock - Rostock is one of the most important economic hubs in Northern Germany.

The upscale, full-service Radisson Hotel will deliver Scandinavian-inspired hospitality and complement the group's Radisson Blu hotel in Rostock. The agreement brings Radisson Hotel Group´s portfolio in Germany to 35 hotels and more than 8,800 rooms in operation and under development.

We thank our partners for their trust and confidence and look forward to a successful journey based on trust and responsibility."

Friedemann Kunz, CEO of the Friedemann Kunz Family Foundation, highlighted the importance of collaboration with the Hanseatic university city and Radisson Hotel Group: "With a long term investment approach, we have found the right partner in Radisson Hotel Group as our trusted partners in Rostock. We thank them for their trust and the successful journey so far. We are also grateful to the city of Rostock in bringing a new hotel project to this destination. This will create a unique ensemble in an exciting location. We are aware of the importance of this location and we thank all those involved for their support and their trust so far. As a family foundation, we invest long-term and are proud of our responsibility to the city and the region, as well as our responsibility to our employees. We are already working hard on the plans and I am looking forward to the further implementation of this project."

The Radisson Hotel Rostock will feature more than 190 guest rooms, all with Radisson's unique brand features. The hotel will also offer an all-day dining restaurant - as well as a rooftop brewery bar, a lobby lounge and a well-equipped gym. Spread over 300sqm, the hotel's meeting space will offer boardrooms and a business center.

The Radisson Hotel will be ideally situated in the city harbor, the newest inner-city development project in Rostock, and just a few steps away from city center.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
