Wyndham Hotel Group has opened its first Wyndham Grand properties in South America, stepping up its presence in Latin America and the Caribbean to 200 hotels.
With the debut of its upper-upscale Wyndham Grand brand in Asunción, Paraguay, and Montevideo, Uruguay, ten of the company’s 18 brands operate in 11 countries across the continent.
Situated in the centres of these two capital cities, the newly constructed Esplendor Asunción – A Wyndham Grand Hotel and Esplendor Montevideo – A Wyndham Grand Hotel offer business and leisure travellers the signature Wyndham Grand experience.
Local culture and style permeate each hotel, while unpretentious and approachable atmospheres allow guests to enjoy the grand things in life like pristine guest rooms, relaxing spas, one-of-a-kind dining experiences, and more.
“Wyndham Hotel Group has made massive strides in Latin America over the last five years, establishing our diverse brands in key markets and meeting the needs of a growing traveller base seeking globally-recognised, quality hotel brands,” said Paulo Pena, Wyndham Hotel Group president and managing director, Latin America and the Caribbean.
“It’s only fitting we commemorate our 200th hotel in this growing region by introducing one of our most aspirational brands to South America.
“At our newest Wyndham Grands, travellers exploring Asunción and Montevideo will find accessible, yet distinctly luxurious, accommodations and unmatched respites in the hearts of these dynamic cities.”
The Wyndham Grand portfolio is exploding around the world with brand flags flying in sought-after destinations like Athens, Phuket, Shanghai, Istanbul, Chicago, and Clearwater Beach, Florida.
The brand also plans to add stunning, five-star new-construction resorts in Barbados, Belize, and Nevis over the next two years.
The strikingly modern, 16-story Esplendor Asunción – A Wyndham Grand Hotel is conveniently positioned in Asunción’s vibrant corporate centre within walking distance of top businesses, art galleries, shopping, and restaurants.
Guests can take in panoramic views of the city’s skyline from the rooftop pool, sun terrace, and snack bar.
Designed by prestigious Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott, the 241-key Esplendor Montevideo – A Wyndham Grand Hotel combines avant-garde design and comfort in Punta Carretas, one of Montevideo’s chicest neighbourhoods located just steps from the area’s best known restaurants, boutiques, and cultural sites.
These two latest additions to the Wyndham Grand family, both managed by Wyndham Hotel Group, strengthen the company’s collection of managed properties which recently grew to more than 100 hotels and resorts around the world with the acquisition of Fën Hotels, a leading management company in Latin America.
