A new Wyndham Grand Hotel is slated to open on the island of Crete in Greece in summer 2019.

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts will begin renovations on the Mirabello Beach & Village Hotel in October to rebrand the hotel.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The company is partnering with Zeus International to open the hotel. Zeus International will control management of the resort. The project is part of Wyndham's agreement with Zeus International signed in March 2017 to develop 20 hotels via conversions or new construction over the next 10 years in Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and Cyprus. 

The partners opened the Wyndham Grand Athens in December 2016 as the first property operating under the Wyndham Grand brand. The 108-suite Wyndham Loutraki Poseidon Resort and the 207-room Ramada Loutraki Poseidon Resort opened in June 2017 on the Gulf of Corinth. Mati's 130 Wyndham Garden Attica Riviera–the former Aquamarina Hotel–and Vravrona's 352-room Ramada Plaza Attica Riviera–the former Mare Nostrum–are also scheduled to open this year. 

The most recent opening under the agreement between Wyndham Hotels & Resorts and Zeus International is the Wyndham Athens Residence in the Metaxourgeio neighborhood. The partners invested €5 million into fully renovating the existing building to open the 89-suite Wyndham Residences. The residences began operating in July in Athens’ city center. The property is next to Metaxourgeio Metro Station near the city’s main attractions and shopping districts, including the Acropolis and the National Archaeological Museum.
