Wyndham plans first Ramada for Vietnam

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has signed its first hotel under the Ramada by Wyndham brand flag in Ho Tram, Vietnam.

Owned and developed by Ho Tram Project Company, the Ramada by Wyndham Ho Tram Strip will be an upper-midscale seafront hotel located within the Ho Tram Strip—Vietnam’s first integrated beach resort destination.

The hotel, which is currently under construction and expected to open in late 2019, is located less than two hours from Ho Chi Minh City and Tan Son Nhat International Airport. It will also be 60 kilometers from the planned Long Thanh International Airport, set to become a major air gateway for Vietnam and the entire ASEAN region.

Vietnam is a key focus market for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. The company, which currently operates the Wyndham Legend Halong Bay, plans to open six new hotels and resorts under its Wyndham Grand, Wyndham and Wyndham Garden brands over the next three years.
“Vietnam is one of the world’s most dynamic tourism destinations,” said Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim. “The country attracted 7.9 million international visitors in the first half of 2018, putting it firmly on course for yet another record-breaking year—potentially exceeding the previous record of 12.9 million visitors achieved in 2017. To cater to this strong demand, impressive new developments are rising all across the country, including the Ho Tram Strip—Vietnam’s first and largest integrated resort.” 
The Ramada by Wyndham Ho Tram Strip will have 198 guestrooms, including seven two-bedroom penthouses and 36 three-bedroom villas.

Water elements will be integrated into the hotel design, with two tropical outdoor pools, reflective ponds, and a water-lined walkway to the beach. Other hotel facilities will include a spa, a gym, two restaurants, a pool bar, and meeting rooms. A new water park also is under construction as well as an amphitheater seating up to 2,000 persons.

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts currently has more than 120 hotels open throughout Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim. In total, the company has nearly 9,000 hotels across its 20 brands. Of these Ramada has nearly 850 locations in 64 countries.
