Wyndham Hotels & Resorts will make its property debut in Nepal this August and in Bhutan come March 2021, as part of its continued expansion across the Indian subcontinent.
Ramada by Wyndham Valley Thimpu, Bhutan, will offer 41 spacious rooms, including many with panoramic views of the magnificent Himalayas. Tucked in the Thimpu valley by the free-flowing Raidāk River, its location will provide easy access to special events at the Tasichho Dzong, the giant statue of Buddha Dordenma, and the sacred Memorial Chorten site.
Ramada Encore by Wyndham Kathmandu Thamel, Nepal, will be situated in the Thamel district of Kathmandu. The hotel will offer 90 guestrooms with a range of amenities to make for a comfortable stay and a rooftop promising a scenic view of the city.
The announcements came on the back of the company’s latest opening in the region, the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Dwarka – the brand’s debut in India.
Later this month, Wyndham will welcome the 45-key Ramada by Wyndham Mussoorie Mall Road at a hill station in the Dehradun District of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. Referred to as the Queen of the Hills, Mussoorie is popular with leisure and business travellers.
Nikhil Sharma, area director, Eurasia, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts said: “Over the last few years, Bhutan and Nepal have seen a steady increase in tourism, making them ideal destinations for us to expand into. What’s more, they perfectly complement the opportunity and uptick of the mid-scale market in India, which we’ve strengthened today with the introduction of our Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham brand.
“As the Indian subcontinent continues making waves in the hospitality industry, Wyndham remains laser focused on tapping into its key markets and fulfilling our mission of making hotel travel possible for all.”
Wyndham is currently one of the largest international hotel companies in India. Besides Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Dwarka, the company has opened two other properties in the country since January 2020: Ramada by Wyndham Aligarh GT Road in January and Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Pune Hinejwadi in March.
