Wyndham wins Lombok project


LOMBOK, 7 December 2017: Wyndham Hotel Group takes its brand to Indonesia’s  Lombok Island with a scheduled opening in mid-2018.

The all-suite Wyndham Lombok Sundancer Resort is owned by PT Wisata Bahagia Indonesia.

It awarded the management contract to PT Wyndham Hotel Management, an Indonesian subsidiary of Wyndham Hotel Group.

The signing follows Wyndham’s recent announcement that it has five management contracts in the pipeline for hotels under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand and its Wyndham Grand® brands in Bali and Palembang in Indonesia as well as Cam Ranh and Nha Trang in Vietnam.

The company claims an inventory of 110 hotels throughout Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim,  a mix of management and franchise agreements.

The latest deal gives the US group management of a resort on Lombok island. To the north of the island lies Mount Rinjani, Indonesia’s second highest volcano and in the other direction lies Bali where Mount Agung is threatening a major eruption.

Lombok International Airport was closed last weekend due to ash clouds swept by prevailing winds from Bali.

Wyndham Lombok Sundancer is set on 48 hectares of beachfront land in southern Lombok and offers close proximity to one of the world’s most famous surfing breaks, Desert Point. The all-suite resort will feature 66 one and two-bedroom suites with a living area overlooking the Lombok Straits and its surrounding islets.
