Wyndham Signs Second Ramada Hotel in Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Wyndham Hotel Group has signed a franchise agreement for the 322-room Ramada Meridin Johor Bahru.

 Scheduled to open in 2018, plans for the 26-storey hotel come hot on the heels of an earlier announcement in September for the development of the 322-room Ramada Encore Meridin Johor Bahru.

 Both hotels are being developed by Mah Sing Group and will be managed by property management firm, Topotels.

As one of the fastest growing regions in Malaysia we see Johor Bahru as a prime location for our growing global portfolio, said Barry Robinson, Wyndham Hotel Groups president and managing director, South East Asia and Pacific Rim. To have not one but two hotels under development simultaneously in the city speaks volumes about the power of the Ramada name and the faith that has been put in it by both Mah Sing Group and Topotels.

Situated approximately 45 minutes from Singapore and less than a kilometre from popular international family theme park Legoland Malaysia, the Ramada Meridin Johor Bahru will be located within the citys Meridin Hotel Suites complex in Medini, a township development that will become a central business district in the newly created southern economic zone of Iskandar in Johor Bahru.

Iskandar is expected to eventually encompass an area approximately three times the size of Singapore and provide tourism, education, business and healthcare services, contributing to the rapid growth of Johor Bahru.

The hotel will offer deluxe hotel rooms, a yoga deck, meditation deck, reflexology area, swimming pool, wading pool, lap pool, aqua gym, caf, oasis garden, mini amphitheater, tennis court, playground, pavilion and an outdoor gym.

Ng Chai Yong, CEO of Mah Sing Group said, We were very heartened by the overwhelming response weve received surrounding development of the Ramada Encore Meridin Johor Bahru. This second agreement is a result of that success and our continued confidence in the capabilities of both Ramada and Wyndham Hotel Group.

Once developed, the Ramada Meridin Johor Bahru will become the fifth Wyndham Hotel Group property to open in Malaysia.
