Radisson Resort To Debut in France at a Charming Seaside Destination

Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage

Radisson Hospitality signed an international franchise agreement to manage the first Radisson Resort brand property in France.

Due to open in 2021, the new-build Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage is situated on the Opal coast in the Pas-de-Calais area. Sangatte Blériot-Plage is a small and charming seaside destination that’s increasingly popular with travelers – both for its golden beach facing out onto the Channel and its easy access to the Eurotunnel, linking it to Western Europe’s major capital cities. The entire region enjoys a healthy flow of tourist arrivals, with international visitors making up more than a quarter of those journeying to a destination that’s quickly growing in demand.

As well as attracting visitors looking to explore its sweeping natural coastline and the impressive cliffs of Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris Nez, Sangatte is becoming a major destination for nautical travelers taking to the sea rather than relaxing on the beach.

Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing the first Radisson branded property to France. Calais and the surrounding areas are undergoing a major transformation to attract more tourists (including international visitors), and – with few international operators already in Sangatte – we’re looking to be first movers in what will be a strong growth market.”

Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage will feature 115 rooms, including six suites. Guests will be able to enjoy quality dishes or sup cocktails at the resort’s restaurant & bar – which will also feature an amazing panoramic terrace that’s sure to draw a crowd in the summer months. Other leisure facilities will include a spa, a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool, with business travelers catered for by two meeting rooms.

The resort’s location is where it will really shine. Its seafront location will offer guests direct access to the beach, making it simple to relax in the sun or enjoy a bracing stroll depending on the season. As part of the established Eco-Village development, the Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage will be within walking distance of a wide range of beach activities, shops and even a golf course.

With its proximity to the Eurotunnel and connections to Eurostar, the Radisson Resort Sangatte Blériot-Plage will be simple to reach by car, train or ferry. Guests will also enjoy easy access to Calais, Lille and Paris – and can even travel to or from London or Brussels in approximately an hour.
