First Wyndham Grand hotel announced for Australia

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts is ramping up its expansion plans in Australia with the announcement of Wyndham Grand Adelaide.

The landmark 34-storey property will become one of the tallest hotels in South Australia and the first Wyndham Grand hotel in the country and the wider Australasian region when it opens in 2024.

Wyndham Grand Adelaide will rise 120 meters from King William Street in Adelaide’s central business district.

The $150 million skyscraper is being developed by Equinox Property and will comprise 347 contemporary rooms and suites featuring a modern interior concept with green walls, marble fixtures and plush furnishings all accented with bold splashes of colour.

The rooms and suites will also include floor-to-ceiling windows that offer decent views of Adelaide’s skyline and the surrounding area.

Wyndham Grand Adelaide guests can also expect a host of facilities, including an infinity pool with a sun deck and a bar offering panoramic city views, a day spa with sauna and treatment rooms, and a spacious fitness centre.

The five-star property will also offer a wide range of dining experiences with an upscale restaurant, a wine bar, a hills-facing sky bar with stylish alfresco seating, as well as a rooftop restaurant.

Wyndham Grand Adelaide will join an exclusive collection of nearly 50 Wyndham Grand hotels and resorts worldwide.

In Australia, the hotel will add to Wyndham’s rapidly expanding portfolio of brands consisting of almost 30 hotels and resorts, including locations in key cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Canberra, and Darwin.

Joon Aun Ooi, president of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts across the Asia-Pacific region, said: “The South Australian capital has been experiencing a surge of investment, with new infrastructure projects such as the expansion of Adelaide Airport, the revamp of the Adelaide Oval, and now the creation of one of the city’s tallest hotels.

“We are excited to be part of this prestigious project. Wyndham Grand is known for its iconic locations, so I can think of no better way to introduce the brand to Australia.”

Wyndham Grand Adelaide will be managed by Resort Management by Wyndham, a subsidiary of Wyndham Destinations, which manages a portfolio of 54 properties across the Asia Pacific.

Development of Wyndham Grand Adelaide is being managed by Guava Lime Property Solutions, and a competitive operator selection program for the Wyndham Grand Adelaide hotel was coordinated through Savills Hotels on behalf of Equinox Property, with support from Commercial & Legal.

The hotel’s architecture is being designed by Loucas Zahos Architects.

All of Wyndham’s hotels in Australia participate in Wyndham Rewards, a program with more than 30,000 hotels, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals worldwide.
