Wyndham Sea Pearl ResortThe Wyndham brand was launched into South East Asia this week with the official opening of Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket in one of Thailand’s top tourist destinations.

The world’s largest hotel company, based on number of hotels, is one of three hospitality business units of Wyndham Worldwide (NYSE: WYN) and has rebranded the property previously known as Sea Pearl Villas Resort Phuket.

The 213-room Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket is owned by local developer, Sea Pearl Business Company Ltd and Sea Pearl Beach Company Ltd, and will operate as a mixed-use property managed by Wyndham Hotel Group in partnership with CLUB WYNDHAM ASIA®.

The sleek, contemporary resort, which was constructed in 2011, is perfectly positioned a short distance to Patong Beach. Located on 16 acres of hillside, the property boasts 180-degree views of the Andaman Sea.

Onsite facilities include four restaurants and bars; a multipurpose hall for meetings and events, complete with catering; and a five-star day spa offering a range of lavish treatments. There is also a fitness centre boasting a 35-metre lap pool, fully-equipped gym, yoga room and kids’ club.

Resort services include a free scheduled shuttle to Patong Beach and Jungceylon shopping precinct; as well as concierge and limousine services.

Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director of Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific and Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim said the rebranding of Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket marked an exciting milestone for the rapidly expanding company.

“The launch of our first Wyndham-branded property in Thailand is an important step in the growth of our Wyndham Hotel Group brands in South East Asia, with more than 40 existing properties in the region and many more in the pipeline,” Mr Robinson said.

“Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket is our flagship mixed-use property in the region and will offer our hotel guests and CLUB WYNDHAM ASIA® members luxurious accommodation options as well as state-of-the-art wedding and event facilities.

“We are confident that it will be popular with both domestic and international guests travelling for business or leisure,” Mr Robinson added.

Managing Director of Sea Pearl Group, Mr Sitikorn Soontornnont said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with the world’s largest hotel group with its introduction into Thailand. We are certain that the globally-recognised Wyndham brand will be a perfect fit for the sleek and sophisticated style Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Phuket offers.”
