Property developer Ho Tram Project Company Ltd on Monday announced that it has tied up with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, a global hotel franchisor and operator services, to manage its Ramada by Wyndham Ho Tram Strip.

They signed the agreement last week in the southern province of Ba Ria – Vung Tau.

Ramada by Wyndham Ho Tram Strip, whose old name was Kahuna Ho Tram Strip, will be an upper-midscale seafront hotel located within the Ho Tram Strip, the country’s first integrated beach resort destination spread over 164 hectares with a 2.2km beachfront site.

The 5.3ha Ramada by Wyndham Ho Tram Strip will have 12 floors and its 198 units will include seven two-bedroom penthouses and 36 three-bedroom villas.

Currently under construction and expected to open in late 2019, it is located two hours away from HCM City.

Viet Nam is a key focus market for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.

The company, which currently operates the Wyndham Legend Hạ Long Bay, plans to open six new hotels and resorts under its Wyndham Grand, Wyndham, and Wyndham Garden brands over the next three years.

Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said: “Viet Nam is one of the world’s most dynamic tourism destinations. The country attracted 7.9 million international visitors in the first half of 2018, putting it firmly on course for yet another record-breaking year – potentially exceeding the previous record of 12.9 million visitors achieved in 2017.

“To cater for this strong demand, impressive new developments are rising all across the country, including the Ho Tram Strip.”

Michael Kelly, executive chairman of Ho Tram Project Company Limited, said: “The Ramada brand is renowned in the hotel industry for exceptional service, making it the perfect partner for our world-class project. We look forward to working together with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts as we prepare for our opening late next year.”

In Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts currently has more than 120 hotels operating under its Ramada and other brands.

Once open, Ramada by Wyndham Ho Tram Strip will participate in the Wyndham Rewards system. — VNS
