Ramada Suites to open in Wellington in 2020

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has announced the expansion of its portfolio in New Zealand in partnership with Safari Group, with the signing of a new Ramada by Wyndham hotel in Wellington.

Scheduled to open in late 2020, the brand-new Ramada Suites by Wyndham Taranaki Street Wellington will mark the company’s debut in Wellington with 93 rooms and conference facilities.

This latest signing brings the two companies’ joint New Zealand pipeline to seven hotels, out of which three new construction properties will open this year in key destinations nationwide.

“With its spectacular scenery and enticing attractions, New Zealand is a highly desirable destination for international travellers, especially the new generation of affluent Asian visitors,” said Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim.

“Arrivals to New Zealand have increased by more than 50 per cent since 2010, due in part to its rising popularity in countries such as China. It is vital therefore that Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has a strong and trusted partner in the country, and we are extremely happy to deepen our relationship with Safari Group. We look forward to working together to introduce even more high-quality hotels to destinations all across New Zealand.”
