Brand Overview: Wyndham Hotels & Resorts ploughs investment into China [Infographic]

by | 04 Aug 2022 | Portfolio

US group Wyndham Hotels & Resorts is pursuing Chinese growth, according to data from TOPHOTELPROJECTS.

Our database shows that of the 37 projects we have recorded for the brand, 15 of these will appear in China over the coming years.

Chinese contemplation

The five star brand will add at least 13,200 rooms to its offering through 2025 and beyond, with 3,648 of those keys (28%) being Chinese, topping our country development list.

Second by project totals is USA, with five hotels, though this will only add 868 rooms to Wyndham’s portfolio, compared to number three on our list – Vietnam – where four projects will deliver a total of 5,580 keys, the highest in our analysis.

Asian influence

The Asian influence is also felt when drilling down into individual city developments for the brand. China’s Dahlian and Wuhan share top spot with two hotels apiece, though Dahlian comes top through a 577-key total, compared to Wuhan’s 350.

Although third on the city list with just one site, Vietnam’s Phan Thiet is due to welcome a massive development of 2,912 rooms.

Vietnam view

This major project, Apec Mandala Wyndham Mui Ne, will house 5,000 sq m of swimming pools, a 3,000 sq m conference centre with the first hologrammatic conference room in Vietnam, a 5,000 sq m indoor play complex, plus more than 129 entertainment utilities and services such as a water park, mineral mud park, beach club area, ocean bar and restaurant. The hotel is expected to become one of the leading beach resorts in Asia when officially launched in Q1 2023.

Other notable developments in Vietnam include Wyndham Resort Beau Rivage Nha Trang, currently due to complete in the fourth quarter of this year. Coastal city Nha Trang will accommodate 1,079 additional keys within two 50-storey towers, one of which will house hotel rooms, with the other comprising luxury condominiums.

A mixed-use complex connects the two towers and offers both guests and residents access to a variety of amenities, including gyms and a spa, an entertainment area and a VIP club. There will also be commercial spaces and numerous dining rooms for guests to enjoy the internal and external spaces.

Pipeline progress

Wyndham’s development pipeline will peak next year with 13 projects (35% of the total) delivering 6,327 rooms, following the rest of the 2022 cohort, which will see 10 hotels and 3,826 keys coming online.

The rate dips dramatically in 2024 however, with just two projects slated to join the brand’s patronage, representing 365 rooms, while 2025 and further ahead has a further 12 projects scheduled, adding another 2,682 keys.
