Wyndham Hotels & Resorts is on the expansion trail in Japan, becoming the first global hotel company to gain a foothold in beautiful Awashima and Nagaizumi.

Wyndham Hotel Group has successfully converted two properties in Japan as the New Jersey-based hotel company continues to ramp up its presence in the country.

We find out more about the latest additions to its 1,700-hotel portfolio across the Asia-Pacific region.

Wyndham celebrates a series of firsts

The 60-room Wyndham Grand Awashima, formerly known as the Awashima Hotel, and 95-room Wyndham Garden Nagaizumi, previously called Nagaizumi Garden, have both recently undergone upgrades. They are the first Wyndham Grand and Wyndham Garden hotels in Japan.

At the same time, Wyndham has become the first global hotel company to enter Awashima and Nagaizumi, two destinations quickly gaining popularity among local and foreign visitors.

“The introduction of the Wyndham Grand and Wyndham Garden brands in Japan further reinforces our commitment to making hotel travel possible for all,” said Andy Flaig, head of development, South East Asia and Pacific Rim, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “We believe travellers will continue to seek out unique experiences and destinations, and our expanding presence in Japan will enable us to welcome new generations of guests to enjoy all that Wyndham has to offer.”

Spectacular views combined with proximity to nature

The company has also shed light on what guests can expect at its new properties.

Wyndham Grand Awashima is a Mediterranean-style resort hotel on the tranquil island that inspired the property’s name. Its 60 suites overlook the ocean and Mount Fuji’s distant peak. Guests can enjoy facilities including an outdoor onsen, a concert hall and a wide range of dining options, including venues specialising in local cuisine.

Meanwhile, Wyndham Garden Nagaizumi features 95 suites with traditional Japanese or contemporary styles – all are equipped with kitchenettes, making them ideal for family trips or extended stays. The hotel is set on the slopes of Mount Ashitaka and offers panoramic views of Numazu City and Sugura Bay. Guests can relax in the lush onsen surrounded by abundant greenery, or treat their pets in the onsite dog café.

“These newest openings are indicative of the long-term potential we see in Japan and reinforce Wyndham’s continued commitment to bringing our globally recognised brands to key markets around the world,” said Joon Aun Ooi, president, Asia Pacific, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Awashima and Nagaizumi are both beautiful destinations with a wealth of natural and historical wonders for visitors to explore, making them the perfect addition to our growing global portfolio and our award-winning Wyndham Rewards loyalty programme.”
