HONG KONG, 19 April 2021: Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, a global
hotel franchising company with over 8,900 properties, announces a pipeline of
new properties scheduled to open in Asia during this year and through to 2024.
Wyndham successfully opened over 125 new hotels and signed a
further 140 properties in the Asia Pacific last year, with over 1,500 hotels in
20 regional markets and territories.
This year, it estimates a 40% increase or approximately 180
hotels across the Asia Pacific. Its pipeline is a mix of directly franchised
and managed hotels that should see it top 2,000 hotels in the region within the
next three years.
Wyndham introduced five of its brands to new markets across
the Asia Pacific in 2020, as Howard Johnson by Wyndham launched in Cambodia,
and Japan welcomed its first Wyndham Grand and Wyndham Garden hotels. In
addition, Dolce by Wyndham and La Quinta by Wyndham hotels were launched in
Vietnam and New Zealand, respectively.
Over 100 hotels are expected to open in Greater China this
year, and its expansion drive starts with the conversion of the 346-room
Wyndham Xinyang Downtown, a prominent hotel located in the heart of the central
business district that represents the first Wyndham hotel in Xinyang, Henan, as
well as the Microtel by Wyndham Tianjin, the first of seven Microtel hotels expected
to open this year.
Other key 2021
openings include Wyndham Beijing Airport and China’s first La Quinta hotel in
Weifang, Shandong province. The Wingate by Wyndham brand will be boosted by the
launch of Wingate Beihai Yintan, located in Guangxi province. Meanwhile, in
Taiwan, TRYP by Wyndham will launch in Linkou, New Taipei City.
In Thailand, the company opened two hotels last year:
Wyndham Grand Nai Harn Beach Resort Phuket and Ramada by Wyndham Bangkok
Key openings this year should include Wyndham Bangkok Queen
Convention Centre, Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Bangkok Sukhumvit 48, Ramada Plaza
by Wyndham Sukhumvit 87, and Wyndham Garden Bangkok Sukhumvit 42, all of which
are located in Bangkok’s central business district.
Three hotels are expected to open in Vietnam this year,
including the Wyndham Soleil Danang, which will become Danang’s tallest
building and Wyndham hotels in Quang Binh and Phu Quoc. In total, Wyndham’s
portfolio in Vietnam is forecast to almost triple by 2024, from seven to over
20 properties nationwide.
