Launch of Wyndham Alltra – an all-inclusive resort brand in Asia-Pacific
Wyndham is partnering pioneering Vietnamese private yacht manufacturer, Alliga Eternity Company Limited (Alliga), to debut the first Wyndham Alltra in the region.
Scheduled to welcome guests in June 2026, the first-of-its-kind concept will see Wyndham Alltra Cat Ba built on a superyacht of 300 cabins, docked in the sea off Cat Ba Island of Vietnam’s Halong Bay.
Featuring eight F&B outlets, various meeting rooms, swimming pool and gym, guests – leisure or business alike – can enjoy unique sparkling views of Halong Bay and a family-friendly itinerary onboard the stationary yacht.
Catering to the fast growing demand for all-inclusive resort experiences, Wyndham Alltra offers upscale services, amenities, and activities with an expressive local flavour at exceptional value.
In line with its focus on Vietnam as a strategic market, Wyndham will explore opportunities to deliver additional properties signed as franchisees of the Wyndham Alltra brand over the next few years. Alliga is already planning to build a second superyacht resort in Nha Trang, central coastal city of Vietnam, signifying its trust and confidence in Wyndham.
Inroads into Australasia
The opening of TRYP by Wyndham Pulteney Street Adelaide marks the re-entry of the TRYP by Wyndham brand in Australia, with Wyndham’s presence now across all states in Australia.
Opening its doors in March 2023, TRYP by Wyndham Pulteney Street Adelaide features a contemporary, edgy interior and showcases the traditional energy of the city through modern furnishings and architecture.
Located in the heart of the CBD, the 120-key hotel is within walking distance of multicultural restaurants, buzzing bars, decorated laneways and boutique shopping at Adelaide Central Market and Rundle Mall.
A short drive from Adelaide Airport, the non-smoking hotel is also minutes away from football and cricket matches at Adelaide Oval, the picturesque Glenelg Beach and gaming at SkyCity Adelaide.
“Through our introduction of the brand, we aim to bring out the vibrant urban lifestyle with the brand’s stylish designs and tailored experiences to enable guests from all over the world to experience the region like a local,” said Matt Holmes, vice president of development, South-east Asia and Pacific Rim, Wyndham.
Launched in January 2023, TRYP by Wyndham Wellington, Tory Street is the first TRYP hotel in the South Pacific region, signifying the brand’s foray into not only New Zealand but in the wider South Pacific.
This is the 11th hotel developed by Safari Group and also the 4th hotel that Safari Hotels directly manages with Wyndham.
Located within a 1920s deco-themed building reminiscent of old Chicago, the hotel captures the history and energy of old Wellington city through modern furnishings and fixtures.
The 77 guestrooms are complemented by an executive boardroom and the TRYP Social Lounge which serves complimentary daily breakfast and all-day snacks and drinks.
Ideally located at the bottom of Tory Street in the heart of the CBD, guests have a plethora of nearby attractions at their doorstep, including restaurants, bars, shopping and entertainment outlets, Te Papa Museum and soon-to-be-opened Tākina Convention Centre.
Ben Schumacher, vice president of operations, South-east Asia and Pacific Rim, Wyndham, summed it up: “The entry of the TRYP brand into the region is a significant milestone for us at Wyndham and testament to the focus on our strategic presence within the Australasian market. The revival of the travel industry is underway in Asia-Pacific and beyond. We will continue to build upon our strong portfolio of brands with a pipeline of exciting openings in the remaining year, staying true to our mission of making hotel travel possible for all.”
