Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has unveiled plans to open its first hotels in Nepal and Bhutan as well as the recent launch of its first Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham hotel in India.

All three hotels are part of Wyndham’s larger efforts to significantly expand its footprint across the Indian subcontinent and are complemented by additional properties in the region that either recently opened or are slated to open over the next nine months.

Nikhil Sharma, area director, Eurasia, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts said, “Over the last few years, Bhutan and Nepal have seen a steady increase in tourism, making them ideal destinations for us to expand into. What’s more, they perfectly complement the opportunity and uptick of the midscale market in India, which we’ve strengthened today with the introduction of our Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham brand."

Following the recent launch of Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Dwarka, upcoming hotel openings include the 45-room Ramada by Wyndham Mussoorie Mall Road in India (late-July 2020), 41-room Ramada by Wyndham Valley Thimpu in Bhutan (March 2021), and 90-room Ramada Encore by Wyndham Kathmandu Thamel in Nepal (August 2020).
