Following the recent signings for three new luxury hotels in Boao, Wyndham Hotel Group has furthered its continued expansion in China with the signing of a management agreement to open a luxury Wyndham Hotels and Resorts property in Hangzhou’s Xixi National Wetland Park.
The 251-room Wyndham Hangzhou Xixi Resort, owned by Hangzhou Xixi Wetland Management Company Limited, will become part of a large sustainable tourism development and has been approved by the government to be the second official State Guest House in Hangzhou.
The Wyndham Hangzhou Xixi Resort, located in the heart of the famous Xixi National Wetland Park in Hangzhou, will serve as an ideal destination for nature-loving guests who will have immediate access to the natural surroundings. Scheduled to open at the end of 2011, hotel facilities will include full-service Chinese and Western cuisine restaurants, golf driving range, spa and fitness center.
The announcement strengthens Wyndham Hotel Group’s position as the largest U.S.-based hotel company in China with 270 hotels representing over 42,000 rooms under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Ramada, Howard Johnson, Days Inn and Super 8 brands. With the addition of these new signings, there are now 12 Wyndham branded properties currently open or under development in China.
Xixi National Wetland Park is the first and only national wetland park in China. Rich in ecological resources, the park is located in the western part of Hangzhou, less than five kilometers from West Lake, and offers an abundance of scenic view points.
The Wyndham Hangzhou Xixi Resort will join Wyndham Hotel Group’s managed portfolio of nearly 30 properties around the globe, including the 588-room Wyndham Xiamen in Xiamen, China; the 600-room Rio Mar Beach Resort and Spa – A Wyndham Grand Resort in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico; and the 162-room Wyndham Grand London Chelsea Harbour in London.
