Rezidor aims to grow its young and successful resort business further – and Croatia as an emerging holiday destination in Europe offers not only beautiful landscapes but also the needed infrastructure and manpower”, says Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.

The Radisson Blu Resort Split is located only 15 walking minutes away from the historic city centre and along a wonderful pristine beach along the Adriatic Sea – it is a unique combination of a city hotel and a sea resort and headed by General Manager Maik Schaefer, a German national.
