Wyndham Hotel Group has signed seven new franchise agreements for hotels in Southeast Asia. The properties will be located across tourist hot spots in Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam under the company's Ramada, Days Inn and Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brands.
The news follows the signings of 26 managed and franchised properties for Wyndham Hotel Group so far this year in the region. “Southeast Asia is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination with an estimated 100 million visitors annually,” Barry Robinson, Wyndham Hotel Group’s president and managing director, South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said in a statement. “With visitor numbers continuing to rise, we have our sights set on growing our presence to meet this demand over the coming years.”
Five of the newly signed properties will be located in Thailand: Days Inn Rest Sea Jomtien Beach Pattaya, Days Inn Siam Central Pattaya, Days Inn Patong Beach Phuket and Ramada Suites Wong Amat Pattaya, all of which are owned by Ratanakorn Asset and managed by KosMopolitan Hospitality, and Ramada ChaoFa Phuket. The signings also mark Wyndham Hotel Group’s expansion in Malaysia with Ramada Resort Lumut.
Across South East Asia and the Pacific Rim, Wyndham Hotel Group currently has more than 60 hotels open and operating, and more than 60 properties in its development pipeline.
