Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific and Wyndham Hotel Group have announced the purchase of a combination of hotel rooms, holiday apartments and penthouse suites, along with the management rights for Wyndham Resort Torquay near Melbourne. The beachfront property formerly carried the Crowne Plaza flag, and from this week will rebrand to become the Wyndham Resort Torquay.
“The Asia Pacific region continues to be a key area of focus for our company’s development,” said Barry Robinson, Managing Director for Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific and Managing Director for Wyndham Hotel Group in the South Pacific. “We are pleased to introduce the Wyndham brand to Torquay further strengthening our presence in the Victoria region,” he added.
Wyndham Resort Torquay will be a mixed-use property featuring 149 rooms – a combination of hotel rooms and one- and two bedroom self-contained holiday apartments. In addition to management of the resort, Wyndham will acquire a selection of hotel rooms and apartments to be transferred into its WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham, for use by members of its Vacation Ownership club.
