Wyndham Hotel Group signs five new properties across south-east Asia

Wyndham Hotel Group continues to strengthen the presence of its upscale Wyndham Hotels & Resorts and upper-upscale Wyndham Grand brands across south-east Asia with five new hotel signings in Indonesia and Vietnam.

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 south-east Asia and the Pacific Rim with 11 hotels and resorts branded under its namesake Wyndham Grand, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts and Wyndham Garden flags.

Barry Robinson, president, Wyndham Hotel Group south-east Asia and the Pacific Rim said: “There is enormous potential in growing the upscale segment in south-east Asia which is a booming tourism hotspot thanks to the region’s rising affluence, improved infrastructure and increased flight connectivity.

“We are responding to the robust demand for quality hotels in exceptional locations throughout the region.”

He added: “At our upscale Wyndham and luxurious Wyndham Grand properties, guests are promised unforgettable travel experiences with tailored services and quality amenities.

“These five new properties add to our global presence of Wyndham and Wyndham Grand hotels and resorts in 145 major cities and resort destinations including New York, Shanghai, Gold Coast, Doha and Salzburg and solidifies our commitment to providing distinctive stay experiences to all travellers.”

The Wyndham brand first entered the south-east Asia market two years ago with its first location in Phuket, Thailand.

The upper-upscale Wyndham Grand brand launched in Phuket in 2016 and since then, the company has continued to make major progress in the growth of its upscale portfolio across the region recently opening hotels in Indonesia and Vietnam.
