JEJU, SOUTH KOREA, 3 November 2016: Wyndham Hotel Group has opened two new hotels in Jeju province – South Korea’s largest island and a premier tourist destination – under its globally recognised Ramada and Days Inn brands.
The Ramada Jeju Seogwipo and Days Hotel Jeju Seogwipo Ocean join Wyndham’s portfolio of 20 hotels currently open and operating in South Korea, while bringing the company’s hotel count in Jeju to seven.
Representing a wave of new development activity in the country, the openings follow the recent signing of new 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 Wyndham Hotel Group Southeast Asia and Pacific Rim president and managing director, Barry Robinson.
A recent domestic travel survey conducted by Korea’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, found that Jeju Island was the most favoured travel destination among 17 cities and provinces in the country for domestic travellers. The island has also attracted the attention of international travellers with a record of 2.3 million visitors in the past two years.
The four-star Ramada Jeju Seogwipo offers 172 standard rooms including 15 suites. Facilities include a buffet restaurant, a business centre, meeting rooms, fitness rooms, and a sauna and spa.
The hotel is close to Seri World Adventure Park, Oedolgae Rock and the Jeju World Cup Stadium, where the 2002 FIFA World Cup was held.
Situated in downtown Seogwipo, Days Hotel Jeju Seogwipo Ocean offers 281 standard rooms including nine suites.
