Wyndham Hotel Group opens first Ramada Hotel in Uzbekistan
Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company with approximately 7,410 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation, on Monday, 19 Augusts, announced the addition of its first hotel in Uzbekistan, the newly opened, 120-room Ramada Tashkent.
The five-star hotel is owned by Sunshine Turon International, Ltd., and marks another step forward in Wyndham Hotel Group\'s aggressive global expansion as the company continues to grow the full-service Ramada® hotel chain. In June 2013, the brand added the 71-room Ramada Sulaymaniyah Salim Street in Kurdistan and, that same week, welcomed the 144-room Ramada Plaza Beirut Raouche in the Lebanese capital of Beirut.
Earlier this year, Wyndham Hotel Group announced the first Ramada hotel in Singapore and further expanded the brand\'s presence in China with the addition of eight properties scheduled to open in the cities of Linyi, Liuzhou, Changzhou, Changsha, Suzhou, Wuyishan and Xishuangbanna over the next two years.
\"The growth of iconic brands such as Ramada in emerging global markets is a top priority for Wyndham Hotel Group,\" said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group\'s senior vice president and managing director. \"With amenities to serve both business and leisure travellers, the Ramada Tashkent is an ideal introduction for Wyndham Hotel Group to Uzbekistan\'s bustling capital as we look to provide travellers with diverse, quality lodging options around the world.\"
Situated close to Tashkent\'s esteemed business district and minutes from famed farmer\'s market Chorsu Bazaar, the centrally located Ramada Tashkent is the only five-star hotel located in the green belt region of Tashkent.

Points may be redeemed for a wide variety of reward options including free hotel stays, air travel, gift cards for leading retailers and restaurants and more.
