Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company and leading provider of hotel management services with 8,900 hotels worldwide, has continued its expansion in New Zealand with the opening of two new hotels, developed by its long-standing development partner, Safari Group.
Within New Zealand, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts operates 15 hotels under three of its distinct brands—Wyndham Garden®, Ramada® by Wyndham, and La Quinta by Wyndham—with locations in Auckland, Queenstown, Christchurch, Albany, Rotorua, Taipa, Hamilton and Wanaka.
The opening of Ramada Suites by Wyndham Taranaki Street Wellington and Ramada by Wyndham Newmarket Auckland (pictured) marks its 11th hotel developed by the Safari Group in the country.
The new properties add to the company’s growing portfolio in Asia Pacific, with more than 1,500 hotels across 20 markets and territories throughout the South East Asia and Pacific Rim and Greater China sub-regions, making Wyndham Hotels & Resorts one of the largest international hotel chains in the region.
The continued growth of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts in the region provides a network of trusted and world-class accommodation options in key destinations across New Zealand including Auckland, Hamilton, Queenstown, Christchurch, and now Wellington, with Ramada Suites by Wyndham Taranaki Street Wellington, which marks the hotel group’s debut into the capital city.
The two new-construction properties offer a range of hotel, studio and self-contained accommodation options in central locations, close to shopping, dining and entertainment precincts, which are ideal for both business and leisure travellers, seeking long or short-term stays.
“With New Zealanders seeking domestic travel more than ever, our two new hotels in highly sought-after locations will help cater to the increased number of New Zealand travellers in 2021 looking to explore the best of their own backyard,” said Joon Aun Ooi, President, Asia Pacific, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.
“Our ongoing partnership with Safari Group in New Zealand has allowed us to continue to offer accommodation that guests can trust, no matter where they are travelling from and giving them peace of mind in an uncertain travel environment, with the guarantee of flexibility and high-quality accommodation options.”
Ramada Suites by Wyndham Taranaki Street Wellington features 117 contemporary rooms and conference facilities, close to the famous Lambton Quay in the heart of the central business district and Courtenay Place, known for its entertainment, dining and nightlife. The six-storey new-construction hotel offers studio, one and two-bedroom apartments, and some rooms with kitchen and laundry facilities.
The 93-room Ramada by Wyndham Newmarket Auckland is ideally positioned in the popular business precinct, featuring premier shopping, dining and entertainment. The five-story, newly constructed hotel offers a range of modern-design hotel rooms and studio apartments, as well as one and two-bedroom apartments featuring fully equipped kitchens and in-room laundry facilities. The hotel’s high-tech purpose-built meeting room is ideal for small to medium sized meetings and cocktail functions.
