Confidence drives Radisson
Mr. Saeed Ahem, Director of Sales and Marketing at Radisson Water Garden Hotel, who is in the hotel business in Bangladesh for around a decade, spoke to many journalists about Radisson.
About the recently built international standard 5 stars Radisson Water Garden Hotel, he said that the tourism and hotel industry is directly related to the state of the economy of a country. He said that the tourism sector ensures and attracts their presence a huge portion of foreign revenue and money is channeled into Bangladesh from this sector.
The 5-star hotel business facilitates earning and contributes the economy by the stay of those foreign travelers in these hotels. On the other hand, in terms of business perspective, a business person is lured to travel in a country where he finds an international standard 5-star hotel for a comfortable stay, he observed. As result business activities in a country are enhanced and a lot of foreign investors show increased interest o invest in a country. This directly benefits our economy, he pointed out.
Hence he believed international standard five-star hotels and the economy of the country are interrelated. Therefore, he though besides the existing three 5 star hotels including Radisson, construction of other such hotels should be encouraged which will definitely add value to our economy in terms of an image to overseas travelers and the earning of foreign currencies as well as increased business activities.
Mr. Saeed said the Unique Sales Product of Radisson is room services, food and beverages, facilities for meetings and banquets, and also as a resort. He said the tariff and facilities compared with the existing 5-star hotels in Dhaka. In this respect highlighting the feature of the hotel, he said that tariff facilities structures were very competitive with other 5 star international hotels in Dhaka and Asia.
Highlighting the importance of the hotel, he said that it was located in a prominent area as it is near the Zia International Airport and also near a lot of foreign embassies. Further, a lot of commercial rotate offices were located in Gulshan, Banani, and Uttara which are close to the hotel, he opened.
This is definitely adding a competitive advantage to the hotel because travelers and business persons entering Bangladesh through Zia international Airport will definitely find it convenient to stay in a hotel that matches their needs to conduct their business activities as well as other communication needs quickly and in a convenient way. In this connection, he also mentioned that the offices in the Motijheel area will not add up to this advantage as these offices are rather far from the hotel.
It is usually said that in the hospitality trade food and beverage are regarded as the main profit center. Radisson was not considering food and beverage to be the main contributing food and beverage to be the main contributing factor to profit, rather quality room services business facilities, meeting and banquet facilities, and as an international standard resort is already contributing fifty percent of the profit, he said.
Providing his views, over the hotel dining facilities, he said it was comparable with the Dhaka Sheraton Hotel and Sonargaon Hotel. As Radisson, Dhaka is just about a month old they were yet to achieve better utilization of these facilities.
At present, they have no plan to expand in Chittagong. But business perspective suggests and for the sake of the tourism sector in Bangladesh, they may consider doing so. Emphasizing the objectives of the Radisson hotel he that they were committed to maintaining international standards like other 5 star hotels in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Japan.
He said, their mission was not to compromise in terms of quality while concluding. He welcomed and lauded the decision of the Government to invest more in this sector.
