Radisson Goes Istanbul
After the Radisson Collection celebrated its debut in Turkey in the port city of Bodrum last year, the brand's second hotel is now opening on the north side of Istanbul. To accomplish this, the former Radisson Blu Hotel in the Vadistanbul district, near the shopping center and stadium of the same name, was renovated and rebranded. The new Radisson Collection Hotel, Vadistanbul features 193 rooms and suites decorated with photographs by local artists. An all-day dining restaurant, several meeting rooms, and a 1,000-square-foot ballroom provide a beautiful setting for business and private events with up to 900 guests. İstanbul'a hoş geldiniz!

The Customer is King
Austria's "Wilder Kaiser" (Wild Emperor) is a 7500ft.-high mountain near Ellmau in Tyrol. Luxury travelers have had the royal... nay, imperial treatment here since the end of 2021. High up on the Wochenbrunner Alm is a small chalet village that has been expanded by six luxurious accommodations to mark the hotel's 20th anniversary. Exterior facades exude the classic Tyrolean look, while the inside of the new chalets enchant: spacious living areas include a couch and fireplace, a kitchen, bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and a private sauna. Culinary delicacies are served through a convenient service window next to the building's entrance.

The plan is to offer discerning travelers (including families!) an elegant retreat with a deep connection to nature and their own bodies. Amidst the untamed landscape, visitors will be able to observe the Big Five and – between June and September – the annual migration of over ten million wildebeest. The camp is to include twenty tents, a restaurant, a lounge bar, a spa, and a large outdoor terrace with fire pits. Guests can also look forward to traditional Masai dance performances.
