Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has entered into a strategic alliance with Spanish hotel group Palladium to expand its Registry Collection luxury hotels with 14 all-inclusive resorts.
The agreement will add more than 6,500 rooms to Wyndham’s Registry Collection, with TRS Hotels and Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts branded locations in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Brazil.
The hotels will join Wyndham’s portfolio under a long-term agreement, leveraging the group’s broad distribution and growing Wyndham’s portfolio of all-inclusive resorts to 26 hotels.
Through this alliance, the two companies seek to strengthen their leadership position in the region and to continue their expansion while offering high quality standards in the main tourist destinations of the Caribbean. By joining the Registry Collection, Palladium Hotel Group hotels should retain their spirit and individuality while leveraging Wyndham’s global scale. At the same time, Wyndham aims to benefit from Palladium Hotel Group’s history as a hotel management company in five-star all-inclusive resorts in America and particularly the Caribbean.
Wyndham President and Chief Executive Officer Geoffrey A. Ballotti said, “The expansion of Registry Collection Hotels continues Wyndham’s global growth in the luxury space and enables more travelers to access new preeminent experiences in some of the most remarkable destinations. These unique all-inclusive resorts are designed to ensure that guests – whether redeeming Wyndham Rewards points or booking direct – enjoy an unforgettable vacation.
Jesús Sobrino, CEO of Palladium Hotel Group, added, “This agreement with a hotel company that has one of the largest distribution capabilities in the United States is a great partnership for us. This alliance is part of our commitment to the US market due to its proximity and great air connectivity to the Caribbean destinations where we operate. As a hotel management company, through this agreement, we are enhancing our value proposition to owners, as we add great know-how and experience in operating all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean.
The first four properties to join Registry Collection Hotels as part of this alliance are all in Riviera Maya, Mexico, including Grand Palladium Colonial Resort & Spa, Grand Palladium Kantenah Resort & Spa, Grand Palladium White Sand Resort & Spa and TRS Yucatan Hotel.
Other Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts and TRS Hotels properties to come in August and September as part of the collection of records under the agreement include two in Mexico (Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa in Cancun and Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa in Riviera Nayarit), five in the Dominican Republic (Grand Palladium Palace Resort Spa & Casino, Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort & Spa and Grand Palladium Bávaro Suites Resort & Spa, TRS Turquesa Hotel and TRS Cap Cana Hotel), two in Montego Bay, Jamaica (Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa and Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa) and Grand Palladium Imbassaí Resort & Spa in Brazil.
In addition to these properties, the Dominican Fiesta Hotel & Casino in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, also managed by Palladium Hotel Group, will join Trademark Collection by Wyndham.
