Wyndham Hotel Group has signed deals for 16 hotels throughout India and Indonesia and announced the launch of the extended stay Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham® brand in India.
Asia-Pacific (APAC) is now the second largest region for Wyndham Hotel Group, with over 540 hotels currently open and operating. From June 2005 to June 2012, Wyndham Hotel Group’s portfolio in the region grew rapidly from 57 hotels to 541 hotels. The region has seen more than 110 properties open over the past 12 months and the Company plans to continue its aggressive APAC expansion.
Of the 16 hotels announced, 12 will be opened in India under the Days Inn, Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham, Howard Johnson and Ramada brands and four will be opened in Indonesia under the Howard Johnson and Ramada brands.
These properties will add to Wyndham Hotel Group’s 16 hotels already in operation and the 15 properties currently under development in the country. In addition to these 12 deals, a new Ramada resort in Udaipur opened recently with its first 72 rooms. The additional 48 rooms are to be completed by December 2014.
In Indonesia, Wyndham Hotel Group will add four properties to the Hotel Group’s three existing hotels in the destination.
Deals were struck in India with Unique Mercantile India Private Limited to open the six Howard Johnson hotels, the same group with which Wyndham Hotel Group signed a non-exclusive development agreement earlier this year to launch the Howard Johnson brand in India; with DJB Infrastructures & Developers India Private Limited to bring the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham brand to the country; with Hotel Holidyas Deesert to open the Days Inn property; and with Mr. Sanjiv Kapila, Ansari Estate Private Limited, Fancy Leisure Private Limited; and Muralya Hotels and Resorts Private Limited to open the four Ramada hotels.
