Wyndham Hotels & Resorts recently expanded its Wyndham Grand brand to Portugal with the opening of Wyndham Grand Algarve, located in Quinta do Lago, a luxury leisure and golfing destination on the shore and adjacent to Ria Formosa Natural Park. The property offers 132 suites, all with one or two bedrooms, as well as a modern fitness center, indoor and outdoor pools, full-service spa, multiple dining options and kids clubs. Guests are near six different golf courses, as well as sporting facilities for tennis, swimming and football. The property is a short drive from Faro Airport and guests enjoy VIP transfers.
“We are thrilled to have expanded our upper-upscale offering for our guests traveling across EMEA. From Georgia to Greece, Turkey and now Portugal, we now have even more options to suit our traveller’s needs combining one-of-a-kind experience with accessible luxury. This stunning location in the Algarve is the perfect spot to introduce our iconic brand to Portugal. With over 20 million overnight stays recorded in the first eleven months of 2019 alone, the Algarve continues to attract more travelers and we are delighted to expand our collection in Portugal’s southernmost region,” said Dimitris Manikis, president and managing director, EMEA, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.
The Wyndham Grand brand opened several properties across the EMEA region in 2019, including Georgia, Croatia, Crete and Turkey. Future properties are currently planned for St. Kitts and Nevis, Barbados, Belize and Miami.
