Wyndham Vacation Resorts and Wyndham Hotel Group, both part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies, have announced the addition of the Mercure Port Douglas Treetops Resort to the company’s expanding portfolio of properties in the South Pacific region.
The newly named Ramada Port Douglas Treetops resort is the latest addition to Whyndham Worldwide’s expanding portfolio of South Pacific properties
The mixed-use property is a result of a collaborative effort between Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific, Australia’s largest vacation ownership company, and Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company with approximately 7,210 hotels.
Located in one of Australia’s foremost tourist destinations, Tropical North Queensland, the property will be managed by Wyndham Hotel Group under the leading international hotel brand, Ramada®, and renamed Ramada Resort Port Douglas. The property is the first Ramada resort to open in this highly popular region.
Wyndham’s latest acquisition will be managed by Wyndham Hotel Group under its Ramada hotel brand
Whyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific’s purchase of the property includes the acquisition of 194 hotel rooms as well as management rights for the property. The hotel rooms will be reconfigured over the next 12 months resulting in the transfer of 86 apartments and hotel rooms in to the WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham for use by its 44,000 vacation owners.
“We are delighted to establish our presence in this area under the strength and reputation of the international Ramada brand,” said Barry Robinson, CEO and managing director, Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific and also managing director for Wyndham Hotel Group in the South Pacific. “We are committed to the expansion of our portfolio in leading tourism destinations such as Port Douglas.”
Hotel rooms will be themed with natural colours and feature plantation shutters to complement the serene tropical setting that the resort offers
Ramada Resort Port Douglas, which is situated across several three-story buildings around a natural-style lagoon swimming pool and waterways, is close to renowned Four Mile Beach and is a short distance from the town centre. Set amidst the resort’s tropical setting, the acquired property will offer a mix of hotel rooms and deluxe hotel rooms themed with natural colours and feature plantation shutters.
Mr. Robinson, added, “Ramada Resort Port Douglas is a stunning property which will not only delight visitors to the region but will appeal to our WorldMark South Pacific Club owners. Port Douglas is a desirable destination to visit as indicated by our owners; therefore we anticipate a valuable contribution to the local tourism industry through our acquisition of this property.”
