New outlets to open


The Diplomat Radisson SAS Hotel will open two new outlets in the first quarter of this year.

Mondo will offer an Italian menu, while Kontiki will serve a mixture of Thai, Vietnamese and Polynesian cuisine. Kontiki will be a casual, family-orientated restaurant which extends to the swimming pool area and will have a live outdoor cooking section.
The opening of these two outlets will mark the end of a total renovation of the hotel. All 246 rooms have been upgraded and fitted with orthopaedic mattresses, tea and coffee making facilities, a safe, mini bar and Internet connection. Four types of room - Maritime, Italian, Classic and Royal Club  – have been created.
Around $13 million was spent on the revamp, which extended to the refitting of all carpets and the installation of new elevators. Further plans include the introduction of a health club and the construction of an adjoining apartment block, due to commerce this year.
