Wyndham Hotel Group has unveiled five new hotels in Southeast Asia – two in Indonesia and three in Vietnam. This is in a bid to strengthen the presence of its upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts and upper-upscale Wyndham Grand brands across Southeast Asia, a press statement said.
The hotels in Indonesia are the Wyndham Dreamland Resort Bali and Wyndham Opi Hotel Palembang located in Sumatra. They are scheduled to open in December 2017 and March 2018 respectively. Meanwhile, the hotels in Vietnam are Wyndham Grand Cam Ranh and Wyndham Cam Ranh, due to open in March 2018, Wyndham Cam Ranh and Wyndham Resort Tropicana Nha Trang, which are slated to open in 2019.
Barry Robinson, president and managing director of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and the Pacific Rim said in a press statement that the move is a response to the “robust demand for quality hotels in exceptional locations throughout the region”.
“There is enormous potential in growing the upscale segment in Southeast Asia which is a booming tourism hotspot thanks to the region’s rising affluence, improved infrastructure and increased flight connectivity,” Robinson added.
The five newly acquired hotels will be managed by Wyndham Hotel Group and add 3,436 rooms to the hospitality giant’s growing portfolio. The company currently has more than 110 hotels throughout Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim with 11 hotels and resorts branded under its namesake Wyndham Grand, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts and Wyndham Garden flags. The Wyndham brand first entered the Southeast Asia market two years ago with its first location in Phuket, Thailand.
