Barbados will be welcoming a new Radisson Hotel to the suite of accommodation properties on the island in another two months.

Totally Barbados has confirmed though information provided by the Carlston Rezidor Group that the 124-room Radisson Aquatica Resort is scheduled to open in May 2013.

Work is well underway transforming what is now the Barbados Grand Resort, into Radisson Aquatica Resort.

When completed, the Resort will feature more than 400 feet of ocean view and will offer authentic Caribbean restaurant and bar.

No estimate of the investment involved in preparing and outfitting the new Radisson in Barbados was forthcoming.

Radisson Expanding in Caribbean

The hotel is one of five which the Carlson Rezidor Hotels Group, plans to open in the Caribbean, Central America and Latin America. Apart from Barbados, there will be a Radisson property in Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, Chile and Costa Rica.

Radisson is a brand present in about 65 countries. It will join other key brands already operating in Barbados, like the Hilton, Sandy Lane and Courtyard By Marriott.

Work on another brand, the Four Season has been stalled for more than two years as the authorities look to sort out financing issues.

Tourism Barbados' Main Industry

Barbados spends about $100 million annually on marketing its tourism industry, which is the main economic engine in the island's $8.7 billion economy. However, declining numbers from key markets have promoted the private sector to call for more resources to attract additional visitors to the island.

Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and in Brussels, Belgium. It is one of the world's largest and most dynamic hospitality groups.

Its portfolio includes more than 1,300 hotels in operation and under development spanning 100 countries.

Last year Barbados' long stay visitor arrivals totaled just under five and half million. That represented a six per cent decline from the previous year.

Declines in arrivals were reported for the UK and United States markets, the two countries which account for the lion share of overnight visitors to Barbados.

Spending was also down, falling to just under two billion Barbados dollars, as a result of the declining numbers. The number of Cruise ship passengers coming to Barbados also dipped in 2012.
