Wyndham has also signed to manage three new hotels in Ethiopia following last year’s opening of its first hotel there, the Ramada Addis Ababa, as part of plans to expand its presence in Africa, the company announced.
Construction of the four-star TRYP by Wyndham on Addis Ababa Bole Road is due to begin later this year, close to the five-star Wyndham Addis Ababa Bole Road, which is already under development. The third hotel is the four-star Wyndham Garden Langano on a lake 180 kilometres south of Addis. The properties are all owned by Santa Maria Real Estate & Hotels.
In 2015 Wyndham opened nearly 40 new hotels open across EMEA, and a total of 50 hotels are in the pipeline.
