CHICAGO, USA -- The Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group announced on Thursday, from its annual business conference, the development of four hotel properties and one recent opening in the Caribbean.

The newest additions include: Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados; Radisson Grenada Beach Resort, St George; Radisson Port of Spain Trinidad; and the newly opened Park Inn by Radisson San Jose, Costa Rica.

“We are thrilled to further expand our brands in South America and the Caribbean,” said Bob Kleinschmidt, chief development officer and chief financial officer, Americas. “We look forward to capturing the attention of both high-end business and leisure travelers with these key destinations, while providing unmatched accommodations and customer service.”

New Carlson Rezidor hotel openings and properties currently under development include:

Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados
This beachfront resort is expected to open in May 2013. The resort will feature more than 400 feet of ocean views from 124 guestrooms. The resort offers an authentic Caribbean restaurant and bar, situated directly over the ocean water.

Featuring more than 1,000 feet of pristine ocean views, this 229-room hotel is expected to open in the third quarter of 2013.
