Wyndham Hotel Group has signed the Marina Quays International at Hope Island on Australia’s Gold Coast to the company’s expanding portfolio of Ramada properties.
Ramada Hotel Hope Harbour, Gold Coast is currently undergoing an extensive AUD$2.5 million refurbishment and is scheduled to commence operation as a Ramada in December this year.
Owned by interests associated with Anthony Moreton Group and Pryde Group, the resort will be managed through Wyndham Hotel Group’s South East Asia and Pacific Rim operations, based on Queensland’s Gold Coast. It will become the second Ramada to open in the area over the past two years following the addition of Ramada Couran Cove Island Resort in July 2013.
Ramada Hope Harbour will join Wyndham Hotel Group’s robust portfolio of more than 30 South East Asia and Pacific Rim Ramada hotels at a time of unprecedented growth for the brand in the region.
Earlier this year, the Hotel Group announced the brand’s expansion into Fiji with the signing of Ramada Suites Smugglers Cove.
The brand’s existing presence in Australia includes resorts in Phillip Island, Dandenong, Ballina, Diamond Beach, Shoal Bay, Couran Cove, Marcoola Beach and Port Douglas.
“The Gold Coast is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations and a key Australian city for both leisure and business travel,” said Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director for Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim.
“We have been actively seeking to expand the Ramada brand here and are delighted to announce this partnership with Anthony Moreton Group and Pryde Group for Ramada Hotel Hope Harbour.”
The waterfront resort will feature 69 guest rooms, including 9 suites, managed by Ramada, all offering stunning views across the adjoining Hope Harbour Marina.
Ramada Hope Harbour will offer two food and beverage venues, including a waterfront restaurant and hotel bar.
Recreational facilities include a 247-berth marina, gym and fitness facilities, two 25-metre outdoor swimming pools, a sauna and a spa. The resort will also offer services for conference, meetings and business guests with flexible function spaces totalling 275 square metres.
