Following a year of rapid growth in Asia with six Wyndham branded hotel openings in China and another seven under construction, Wyndham Hotel Group, part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation, today announced the signing of a franchise agreement to open its first Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® property in India.
Located in India’s capital city of New Delhi, the 394-room Wyndham New Delhi Dwarka Hotel is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in April 2011. The property, owned by Tirupati Buildings & Offices Pvt. Ltd., will feature the upscale amenities and personalized services that have become hallmarks of the Wyndham brand.
“India is currently undergoing some of the most accelerated hotel development activity in the Asia Pacific region, which poses great opportunities for us to grow our portfolio in this market,” said Eric Danziger, Wyndham Hotel Group President and Chief Executive Officer. “The signing of the first Wyndham property in New Delhi demonstrates our ongoing commitment to provide travelers with high caliber accommodations and service throughout Asia and puts a firm stake in the ground in this lucrative market.”
The Wyndham New Delhi Dwarka Hotel will be conveniently located just four kilometers from Indira Gandhi International Airport and will put business and leisure guests within close proximity to the cosmopolitan city.
Hotel facilities will include full-service Indian and multi-cuisine restaurants, nightclub, swimming pool, spa, fitness center, business center and 14,000 square feet of flexible meeting and banquet space. In addition, a luxury shopping mall will open alongside the hotel.
“We are extremely excited to open the first Wyndham hotel in India in a growing market like New Delhi,” said Mr. Subhash Dabas, owner of Tirupati Buildings & Offices Pvt. Ltd. “Our mission to build world-class properties of the highest standards aligns perfectly with the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand. With our shared values, we are confident this will be a successful partnership.”
