Wyndham signs Phu Quoc resort

PHU QUOC, VIETNAM, 10 August 2017: Wyndham Hotel Group has signed a new Wyndham Garden branded resort slated for development on the island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam.

The Wyndham Garden Phu Quoc is scheduled for completion in 2020 giving the US-based hospitality three properties in Vietnam. The other two are in Halong Bay and Danang.

The 150-key all-villa resort will be located in Duong To Commune close to Phu Quoc’s Bai Truong, the longest beach on the island.

The resort is located a short distance from the island’s international airport and Duong Dong Town, where the island’s main market, restaurants and street food can be found. The estimated transfer time from the resort to airport is 12 minutes.

“Phu Quoc has gained immense tourism interest over the last five years thanks to its white sand beaches, excellent conditions for marine activities and unspoiled natural landscape,” said Wyndham Hotel Group Southeast Asia and Pacific Rim vice president for development, David Wray.

Recent statistics released by the Vietnam National Tourism Authority revealed that the country welcomed 10 million visitors in 2016 – an impressive 26% increase from 2015. In Phu Quoc alone, the island received 1.5 million visitors in 2015, a number expected to double by 2020.

The group is breaking into Vietnam’s hotel market with a newly opened five-star hotel in Halong Bay, Wyndham Legend Halong Bay.

Its second hotel will be Wyndham Soleil Danang, which will be the tallest building in Danang. The mixed-use development with hotels, residences and retail facilities set to open in late 2018.

Wyndham Garden Phu Quoc will represent the group’s third property operating under a franchise agreement with Hong Phuc Land.

“We are thrilled to work with Wyndham Hotel Group on the development of Wyndham Garden Phu Quoc,” said, Hong Phuc Land project owner, Le Tri. “Wyndham Hotel Group’s expertise and capabilities across distribution, and sales… will help us deliver first class hospitality to guests when we open in 2020.”
