Wyndham Hotels & Resorts is continuing its robust expansion across Europe, the Middle East, Eurasia and Africa (EMEA), with important new openings and a series of new market entries.
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ recent expansion included a number of important markets such as Greece, Germany, Portugal and Georgia in Europe. In particular, the company entered the Armenian, Croatian, Kyrgyzstanian and Danish markets for the very first time, through an exclusive agreement for its upscale Dolce by Wyndham brand with Comwell Hotels, marking a key milestone for the brand, with more openings expected in the country over the next two years.
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has also been ramping up its presence across the Middle East and Africa. Recent openings include the launch of the Wyndham Garden in Muscat, Oman, with the addition of Ramada Encore by Wyndham Muscat Al Ghubra, expected in March 2020. The brand also announced three new hotels in Dubai, as part of the Deira Waterfront Development by Ithra Dubai, which will see the introduction of the Super 8 by Wyndham brand in the market. In India, the hospitality expert continues to make strides in the mid-market hospitality segment, with seven openings in 2019 across important locations such as New Delhi, Bangalore and Jaipur, amongst others.
2019 also marked the entry of the upper-midscale La Quinta by Wyndham brand in EMEA – the first outside of the Americas – with the opening of La Quinta by Wyndham Istanbul Gunesli in Turkey. With this opening, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has surpassed 80 hotels in Turkey reinforcing its position as the largest international hotel brand in the country.
“We are incredibly proud of our strong growth across the region in 2019 and look forward to building on this momentum in 2020 and beyond, across new and existing markets,” enthused president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts EMEA, Dimitris Manikis. “The EMEA is one of the most diverse regions in the world, and with our wide hotel presence, significant diversity of brands entering new destinations, our expansion is key to deliver on our vision to make hotel travel possible for all, and ensure there is a Wyndham hotel to suit any traveller’s need visiting this vibrant region.”
Some of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ expected openings for 2020 include more Super 8 by Wyndham hotels in Mainz and Augsburg (Germany), as well as the brand’s debut in the UAE with Super 8 by Wyndham Deira Waterfront in Dubai. Other anticipated openings include Ramada Encore by Wyndham Muscat Al Ghubra (Oman) and various Ramada by Wyndham hotels across India, Tbilisi (Georgia) as well as Budapest (Hungary).
