WYNDHAM HOTEL GROUP INTRODUCES RAMADA BRAND TO VANUATU WITH PORT VILA OPENING
Wyndham Hotel Group has expanded its South Pacific presence with this month’s opening of the highly anticipated Ramada Resort Port Vila, Vanuatu.
Opening three weeks earlier than anticipated, the 80-room, AUD 30 million resort is the company’s first property in Vanuatu and employs 120 staff. Set on the cliffs of Erakor Lagoon, it offers breathtaking views of the lagoon’s clear waters and the sandy white beaches of Erakor Island. The resort is located just outside the heart of Vanuatu’s capital, Port Vila, and a convenient 15 minutes from Bauerfield International Airport.
“We are proud to expand our South East Asia and Pacific Rim portfolio to another popular destination in the South Pacific,” said Wyndham Hotel Group President and Managing Director Barry Robinson.
“Vanuatu is famous for its world-class beaches, friendly people and relaxed atmosphere, and this resort is a strategic addition to ensure our rapidly-growing Wyndham Hotel Group portfolio provides guests with the most diverse range of experiences possible.”
With its brilliant array of sea life, including tropical fish, coral, starfish, sea horses and sea cucumbers, Erakor Lagoon is considered a stunning destination for snorkelling and scuba diving. Resort guests receive complimentary use of snorkelling equipment and kayaks on-property, while local cruise operators provide day trips for snorkelling or diving at secluded spots. A range of reef and shipwreck sites off the coast are ideal for scuba divers.
Ramada Resort Port Vila offers studio rooms, junior suites and two-bedroom suites, all with balconies and panoramic views of the lagoon, air conditioning, kitchenette and satellite television with 30 international channels.
The resort’s facilities include a swim-up pool bar, lounge bar, sports bar, a swimming pool, a gym and conference rooms that can cater for up to 140 delegates. Akiriki, the onsite restaurant, serves a variety of local favourites and international dishes using the finest local produce and ingredients.
“The introduction of this resort under the globally-renowned Ramada brand is a milestone development for Port Vila’s tourism offerings and for the local economy,” said Ramada Resort Port Vila Managing Director George Dechaineux. “We have enjoyed welcoming our first guests and we intend to show them how friendly, authentic and beautiful Vanuatu is.”
