Wyndham Hotel Group announced plans to expand into Kenya after signing a franchise agreement for Ramada Nairobi, the first Wyndham Hotel Group property in the country.
Ramada Nairobi will be owned and managed by Global Hotels Management Africa Ltd. (GHMA), an affiliate of Global Hotels Management (GHM), which already operates the Ramada Hotel & Suites Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates.
The agreement adds to Wyndham Hotel Group’s existing presence of Ramada® and Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham® hotels on the African continent in Ghana, Nigeria, Morocco and Tunisia.
“Wyndham Hotel Group continually seeks to expand its portfolio of hotel brands in high-demand markets like Kenya, where the oil and gas industries are growing rapidly,” said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Indian Ocean. “We are confident that Ramada Nairobi, as part of a globally recognised brand with growth potential in the market and a continuation of our successful relationship with GHM, will be a tremendous addition to our portfolio.”
The four-star hotel, projected to open at the end of this year, will offer 89 guest rooms including 25 suites and will be located on Wangapala Road, approximately 19 kilometres from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and situated in the affluent Westlands area of the capital city.
Ramada Nairobi will include two meeting rooms and a rooftop banquet hall as well as various food and beverage outlets, including an all-day dining restaurant and speciality restaurants offering Chinese and Pakistani cuisine. Guests will have access to a spa, fitness room and indoor pool.
“Ramada Nairobi will be a landmark property for GHM and we are proud to have partnered with Wyndham Hotel Group in introducing the brand to Kenya,” said Mr. Masood Hashim Shamim, chief executive officer of Global Hotels Management Africa Ltd.  “We are committed to being a part of the country’s booming tourism industry and understand the importance of partnering with reputable brands to ensure that we deliver the highest quality products and services.”
Guests staying at the hotel who are members of Wyndham Rewards®, the free-to-join guest loyalty programme of Ramada and parent company Wyndham Hotel Group, will be able to earn valuable points, which may be redeemed for a wide variety of reward options including free hotel stays, air travel, gift cards for leading retailers and more.
