Wyndham has continued its push into South Korea with the opening of two new hotels on the island of Jeju.
The Ramada Jeju Seogwipo and Days Hotel Jeju Seogwipo Ocean join Wyndham’s portfolio of 20 hotels currently operating in South Korea, while bringing the company’s hotel count in Jeju to seven.
This represents a wave of new development in the country for Wyndham; the openings follow the recent signing of agreements for 17 Ramada and six Days Inn hotels, all of which are expected to open by the end of 2018.
“Jeju Island has a booming tourism industry, which presents Wyndham Hotel Group with a great opportunity to expand its brands across the island,” said Barry Robinson, Wyndham’s president & managing director for Southeast Asia & Pacific Rim. “Jeju’s natural beauty and UNESCO heritage-listed sites make it the ideal destination for us to position our brands.”
The new Ramada Jeju Seogwipo offers 172 rooms and 15 suites, plus a restaurant, business centre, meeting rooms, fitness centre and spa. Days Hotel Jeju Seogwipo Ocean meanwhile, features 281 rooms and suites, a restaurant, café, business centre, conference rooms and a 24-hour service convenience store.
