The hospitality giant has 35 operational hotels in India under the Ramada, Ramada Encore, Howard Johnson and Days brands. 

“India’s hospitality industry, especially the mid-market segment, is thriving from strong growth in domestic travel, an increase in foreign tourists, as well as a booming airline industry supported by government-led initiatives,” said Deepika Arora, Wyndham Hotel Group’s regional VP for Eurasia.

The US-based company also said that it is planning to introduce new brands to India over the coming years including Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham, Wyndham Grand and Wyndham.

For instance, by 2020, Wyndham Grand is scheduled to open in Bengaluru in 2020. 

The ambitious expansion in India is part of Wyndham Hotel Group's wider plan to expand across Eurasia in countries including India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Mauritius, Maldives, Pakistan and more. 

The new operations will cater to travellers in India visiting pilgrimage destinations, leisure destinations and second home locations.
