Wyndham targets Adelaide for the year of exceptional openings

Wyndham Hotels and Resorts expects another strong year in its Asia Pacific business after introducing 120 new hotels and signing 200 properties last year.

Wyndham increased its global development pipeline by 5% over the prior year, representing 1,500 hotels and more than 194,000 rooms, the largest pipeline in company history. In Asia Pacific, Wyndham’s portfolio now includes more than 1,600 hotels in 20 regional markets.

“Building on the success of 2021, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts continues to pave the way for continued growth through our strong opening and development pipeline,” said Joon Aun Ooi, President of Wyndham Hotels. and Resorts, Asia-Pacific.

“We will launch new brands in several strategic markets this year in a bid to capitalize on an anticipated recovery in travel to the region, supported by strong pent-up demand as borders gradually reopen.”

Wyndham had notable expansions in Thailand, Vietnam and Australasia, which saw four openings across multiple brands in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch and Hervey Bay. The opening of the Ramada by Wyndham Wellington marked the first Wyndham hotel in the capital.

In Greater China, Wyndham opened more than 100 hotels last year, including the Wyndham Garden Hangzhou Yuhang and midscale brands Ramada by Wyndham in Guangzhou and Qingdao.

Earlier this year, Wyndham launched China’s first La Quinta by Wyndham in the “Crafts and Folk Arts City” in Weifang, Shandong Province. Other brand openings this year will include eight new Wyndham Gardens across Asia, ten Ramada by Wyndham hotels in China and an expansion of Microtel by Wyndham, with more than 10 new hotels in China.

Seven new hotels will open in Thailand, including the 190-room Wyndham Atlas Wongamat Pattaya, the first Wyndham hotel in Pattaya, as well as five other hotels in the area.

In Vietnam, new properties will be added in popular leisure destinations such as Phu Quoc and Hoi An.

New Zealand will welcome new lifestyle hotel brands Microtel by Wyndham, which are scheduled to open by the fourth quarter of this year, and TRYP by Wyndham.

Wyndham will expand its presence in Australia with the opening of its first-ever hotels in South Australia – Wyndham Wallaroo Shores Resorts and TRYP by Wyndham Pulteney Street Adelaide in the fourth quarter.

“Our continued momentum in hotel openings across Asia-Pacific not only reflects optimism for its recovery, but it also signals the long-term confidence that our partners place in Wyndham’s globally established brands,” said added Ooi.

“In fact, we are making great strides towards our goal of reaching 2,000 hotels in Asia-Pacific by 2025. As Asia-Pacific gradually transitions into an endemic phase, we are poised for an increase in travel of leisure and intra-regional, and Wyndham will be ready to welcome guests with a range of exceptional hotels.”
