The First Group is proud to partner with one of the world's most renowned leaders in the hotel industry, Wyndham Hotel Group. With a growing portfolio of approximately 8,000 properties in 71 countries across six continents, this dynamic hotelier is the world's largest hotel company by property number.
As part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of trusted hospitality brands and services, Wyndham Hotel Group offers a diverse range of hotel names, including Wyndham® Hotels and Resorts, Ramada®, Days Inn®, Super 8®, Wingate by Wyndham®, Baymont Inn & Suites®, Microtel Inn & Suites® by Wyndham, Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham®, TRYP by WyndhamSM, Howard Johnson®, Travelodge® and Knights Inn®. The Wyndham Hotel Group also boasts the largest loyalty program in the world with 40 million members, as measured by the number of participating hotels.
Our choice to partner with the Wyndham Hotel Group was influenced by one factor - optimising returns for our hotel property investors. With Wyndham's sizable market reach, brand recognition, advanced reservation system, and millions of loyal guests, we have secured a hotel operator that is poised to drive high occupancy and rental rates. In turn, this equates to higher rental income and optimal financial rewards for our hotel owners.
We are proud to have Wyndham Hotel Group on board with three of our current hotel projects, Wyndham Dubai Marina, which opened in 2016, The One Dubai Maria and our largest hotel property to date, Sky Central. This iconic Barsha Heights property will fall under the TRYP by WyndhamSM brand, a division of Wyndham Hotel Group's portfolio, which features 114 urban hotels and over 16,000 rooms across Europe and the Americas.
Wyndham Dubai Marina, The One Dubai Marina and Sky Central mark a prestigious debut in the UAE for Wyndham Hotel Group, a factor that is sure to increase its international appeal. We have no doubt this collaboration will spell top returns for our investors and look forward to adding more Wyndham branded properties to our ever expanding portfolio in the future.
