Wyndham Hotels & Resorts will be opening three more properties in Thailand under its upscale Wyndham brand by the end of 2020.
Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South-east Asia and Pacific Rim, said: “Thailand’s tourism industry is riding the crest of a wave, with record numbers of visitors travelling to the country in search of its idyllic tropical climate and iconic attractions.”
He added: “Within the next two years, Wyndham will launch a series of exceptional new hotels and resorts in many of Thailand’s most sought-after regions, expanding the capacity of established destinations and bringing international accommodation to exciting new markets.”
In its pipeline, the company has a trio of new hotels slated to open in Thailand by 2020.
Wyndham Nai Harn Resort Phuket, scheduled to open in 4Q2019, will become the first internationally-branded hotel in the Nai Harn area of Phuket. Owned by Cissa Group, the resort will boast a large swimmable lagoon covering the entire ground floor, flowing between the buildings and directly accessible from many of the 353 rooms and suites. Other features include restaurants, a swim-up bar, a rooftop garden and lounge, a spa and wellness centre as well as meeting rooms.
Wyndham Chalong Phuket, slated to open in 2Q2020 and also owned by Cissa Group, will feature 150 pool villas, including two- and three-bedroom options. Located near Chalong Bay, the resort will also offer an all-day restaurant, a bar, a spa, a fitness centre and modern meeting spaces.
Wyndham Atlas Wongamat Pattaya, expected to open in late 2020 on the country’s popular Eastern Seaboard, will feature 192 rooms and suites, a restaurant, a lounge, a fitness centre and meeting space. The hotel will be crowned by a rooftop pool and a garden with views of the sea.
Earlier this year, the company opened three new hotels as part of its ongoing expansion plans, including a milestone development of its first two hotels in the Krabi province – Ramada by Wyndham Aonang Krabi and Days Inn by Wyndham Aonang Krabi – and Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Chaofah Phuket.
Wyndham states that South-east Asia remains its fastest-growing region, surging 22 per cent year-over-year and currently comprise over 24,000 rooms.
