“Phuket is a major beach resort in Thailand and attracts millions of visitors annually," Barry Robinson, president and managing director of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said in a statement. "This is a timely opportunity for us to expand our offerings, with the country hitting a ground-breaking record of 29.99 million tourist arrivals in 2015, which is a phenomenal increase of 20 percent from 2014."

Looking ahead, Wyndham Hotel Group will be placing further emphasis on key emerging markets such as Thailand, in line with the larger global development strategy to increase its footprint across the region.
