Belgium, Brussels. February 27, 2019

Radisson Hotel Group, one of the largest and most dynamic hotel groups in the world, is delighted to announce the signing of a Master Development Agreement with SunnySeeker Hotels in the Republic of Cyprus. Building on an already-successful partnership, the new deal will see the group grow its existing portfolio in the country to six hotels and almost 1,000 rooms by 2025.

SunnySeeker Hotels has been a partner for Radisson Hotel Group in Cyprus since 2015. This new agreement is a valuable opportunity for both companies to capitalize on each other's industry expertise, market position and global presence.

We're glad to extend our collaboration in a market where we can grow our portfolio in line with an aligned expansion plan. We thank them for their trust and the successful journey so far.”

Mr. Antonis Hadjinicolas, General Manager of SunnySeeker Hotels, said: “It's a pleasure to continue our longstanding and successful relationship with Radisson Hotel Group, and to be working with them to develop a range of exciting opportunities across Cyprus. We're highly committed to the success of our cooperation with Radisson Hotel Group - as demonstrated by the recently opened Radisson Blu Hotel, Larnaca in the city and the upcoming opening of the Radisson Larnaca Beach Resort. We look forward to offering Radisson Hotel Group guests a growing range of outstanding experiences as part of this partnership.”

Radisson Hotel Group's existing portfolio in Cyprus consists of three Radisson Blu and Radisson properties (and approximately 500 rooms) in operation or under development. The Master Development Agreement will see this double to six hotels and almost 1,000 rooms in operation by 2025.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
