Coral Sea Hotels has announced an exciting new partnership with Radisson Hotel Group for Grand Papua Hotel to become a member of Radisson Individuals. As a member of Radisson Individuals, Grand Papua Hotel will be integrated into Radisson Hotel Group’s extensive global sales and distribution network. Guests will also benefit from being able to join Radisson Rewards, an industry-leading hotel loyalty program that offers exclusive benefits to millions of guests worldwide, linking to global frequent flyer programmes.

The 16-storey, 156 room and suites Grand Papua Hotel, overlooking the harbour and the Coral Sea, has a strong reputation as one of the country’s most popular and upmarket places to stay. It is an ideal fit for the Radisson Individuals brand, which is a curated collection of hotels that retain their individual personality, giving guests unique experiences that reflect the spirit of the locale, supported by the group’s “Yes I Can” service philosophy.

“We’re delighted to become a part of Radisson Individuals. We’re always looking at ways to improve our guest experience and reward loyalty” said Peter Laigaard Jensen, Group General Manager of Coral Sea Hotels. “This partnership will give our guests access to an internationally recognised loyalty programme whilst also maintaining the upscale boutique experience that they have come to value when staying at Grand Papua Hotel”.

The team at Grand Papua Hotel are busy preparing for the launch on 1 April 2022. “Our team is undergoing extensive training and there’s a lot of energy behind the opening” said Robert Cohen, General Manager of Grand Papua Hotel. “We’re looking forward to welcoming guests from 1 April and to showcase the new standards”.

As Papua New Guinea reopens, Grand Papua Hotel is well positioned to benefit from business meetings and conferences returning to Port Moresby. This landmark hotel has a selection of nine function rooms, ranging from intimate boardrooms to large, flexible spaces that can house up to 230 delegates, setting the stage for a wide variety of corporate meetings and social occasions.

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome the Grand Papua Hotel into our rapidly expanding portfolio in Asia Pacific. This is a prime example of how Radisson Individuals is enabling Radisson Hotel Group to enter emerging markets while allowing owners and developers to take advantage of our international expertise. Grand Papua Hotel is a respected hotel in Port Moresby, and I look forward to helping it reach even greater heights in the coming years,” said Katerina Giannouka, President, Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group.
