WYNDHAM Hotel Group will open three new Ramada properties in China, one of which will be the company’s first managed Ramada hotel in the country, and a resort in Phuket.
The new managed property in China, the Ramada Plaza Sanya, is scheduled to open in June next year, and will feature 496 rooms including 88 suites. Facilities will include a ballroom, meeting space, a business centre, an executive lounge, a spa, a swimming pool and a fitness centre. There will also be three restaurants offering all-day dining, Chinese cuisine and specialty dishes.
Wyndham has also signed two franchise agreements in China, one with Shaoguan Fengdu Real Estate for the Ramada Plaza Shaoguan City Center, and the other with Suzhou Dingfeng Real Estate Development for the Ramada Suzhou North.
The Ramada Plaza Shaoguan City Center, due to open in January next year, will feature 320 rooms including 32 suites. Scheduled to open in the summer of 2013, the Ramada Suzhou North will feature 278 rooms including 28 suites.
Meanwhile, the Ramada Phuket South Sea, due to open later this year, will offer 152 guest rooms with sea views. The new hotel, owned by Phuket development company South Sea Resort, will add to the five Ramada properties currently open in Thailand.
This is the second management agreement between South Sea Resort and Wyndham Hotel Group. The first was for the Wyndham Khao Lak, which is also expected to open later this year.
