PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 9, 2019 — Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world's largest hotel franchising company with approximately 9,200 hotels across more than 80 countries, today announced the arrival of its Trademark Collection® by Wyndham soft-brand to Latin America and the Caribbean with the addition of the Costa Blu Beach Resort in Belize.
Located seven miles north of San Pedro Town on the scenic Ambergris Caye, the exclusive, 38-suite, adults-only beach-front resort is located in one of the region's most sought after vacation destinations and is just offshore of the Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest barrier reef in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The resort is owned by Sandy Point Group and will be managed by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, making it the company's 26th managed property in the region.
Said Alejandro Moreno, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts president and general manager for Latin America and the Caribbean: "With nonstop flights from 17 cities in seven countries, on seven international airlines, getting to Belize has never been easier. What's more, the latest numbers released by Belize Tourism Board, show that the revenue generated in the accommodations sector has increased every year over the past seven years. Given the wealth of opportunity, we're thrilled to be opening our first managed Trademark in a place that's not only beautiful but also growing in demand."
With more than 100 hotels globally, Trademark Collection by Wyndham is a soft-branded, independently-minded collection of upper-midscale and above properties. Just as no two travelers are alike – every Trademark hotel is distinctive, taking on the character of the place in which they're built. Among just some of the notable hotels in the collection are The INFINITY Hotel & Conference Center in Munich, Germany, the HYPERION Hotel Basel in Basel, Switzerland, as well as notable American locations like the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Ky., Ravel Hotel in Long Island City, N.Y., and the Zermatt Utah Resort & Spa in Midway, Utah.
Costa Blu Beach Resort, a Trademark Collection by Wyndham hotel, is adults-only and offers guests a unique experience where tranquility, relaxation and leisure are the main attractions. Resort amenities include an on-site restaurant, seaside beach bar, outdoor pool, spa services and complimentary paddleboards and kayaks for a quick ride to explore the natural wonder of Ambergris Caye. Featuring large private balconies that overlook the Caribbean Sea, all suites come fully equipped with a kitchenette, mini refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, 40″ flat screen cable TV and Wi-Fi, among other amenities.
"We are very excited to be partnering with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts to bring an internationally recognized brand to Belize and the region," said Mary Dahlquist, chief operations officer of Sandy Point Group.
