Wyndham Hotel Group to open its third Perth hotel in 2018

The Wyndham Lux Perth, Australia

Looking to strengthen its presence in Western Australia, U.S.-based Wyndham Hotel Group has signed its third Perth hotel. Set to open in late 2018 as part of a deal with developer by Nxt Tec, the property will be the first in Perth to operate under the company’s Wyndham brand.

Construction of the 120-guestroom Wyndham Lux Perth will begin in the second half of this year.

The group's Australian property portfolio already includes properties in Sydney, Melbourne, the Gold Coast and Torquay, Victoria. The Wyndham brand is in major urban and resort destinations around the world. “We’re strategically expanding our flagship Wyndham brand in capital cities like Perth where there is a low supply–but increasing demand–for upscale accommodations," Barry Robinson, president, Wyndham Hotel Group south-east Asia and Pacific Rim, said in a statement.

Perth tourism has grown remarkably and statistics from Tourism Western Australia show international visitation to the state increased 12.4 percent in the year ending December 2016–the highest international visitation has reached for the state. Robinson added, "Perth is a growing city visited by millions of interstate and international travelers every year, serving as the gateway to many tourist hot-spots across Western Australia and Indonesia, where we now have seven hotels." The city is known for being the Australian capital with the most hours of sunlight per year and has a mix of coastlines, food and beverage outlets and sporting experiences.
