Future Scandic hotel revealed for Kristiansand

Biggest hotel in Kristiansand due to open in spring 2013

Scandic Norge is preparing to operate the biggest hotel in Kristiansand, due to open in spring 2013. Aquarama Kristiansand and Scandic have agreed on the hotel, which they say will form an integral part of the Aquarama water park, training centre and spa located on Bystranda, Kristiansand’s city beach. It is projected that in winter the property will serve as a prime conference location targeting business travellers, while in summer it will be a holiday destination attracting families with children.
The hotel will have 229 rooms, more than 800 beds and conference capacities for up to 400 people. “We are creating the meeting and conference centre that was missing in southern Norway”, Svein Arild Steen-Mevold, Scandic Norway’s country vice president, explained. Scandic Hotels calls this and the recently unveiled Scandic Victoria Tower and Scandic Grand Central in Stockholm as well as the Scandic Vulkan in Oslo as a “new generation” of hotels in the Nordic region.
