Wayfarer TV exclusive: Wyndham’s Joon Aun Ooi talks South East Asia and Pacific Rim growth

by James Wilkinson

Wyndham Hotels and Resorts is set to reach the milestone 10,000 hotels mark over the next couple of years and one of the key regions driving that phenomenal growth is South East Asia and the Pacific Rim.

In many countries across Wyndham’s South East Asia and Pacific Rim region – including Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam – the company is seeing growth numbers that are staggering, including in Vietnam, where the hotel operator has 500 rooms open now and over 10,000 to come.

In Australia and New Zealand, Wyndham has approximately 40 hotels in operation and has expectations to double the portfolio over the next couple of years, driven by strong demand for hotels under the Wyndham, Ramada, TRYP and recently-introduced Days Inn and Wyndham Garden brands.

To find out more about the growth for South East Asia and the Pacific Rim, WAYFARER Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Gregory Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera to Wyndham’s President and Managing Director for the region, Joon Aun Ooi, at the company’s Global Conference in Las Vegas recently.
