ROTORUA, NEW ZEALAND (7 December 2015) – Showcasing continued demand for its growing portfolio of globally recognized brands, Wyndham Hotel Group today announced the rebranding of New Zealand’s four-star WorldMark Resort Rotorua to the new Ramada® Resort Rotorua Marama.
Nestled on the tranquil shores of Lake Rotorua and the Ohau Channel, the resort operates as a mixed-use property, catering to traditional hotel guests as well as vacation owners through WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham. It marks the fifth Ramada resort to open in New Zealand.
“Ramada is a highly recognisable, global brand known for offering outstanding accommodations in key destinations around the world,” said Barry Robinson, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim. “WorldMark Resort Rotorua has long been a favourite of vacation owners in the WorldMark South Pacific Club, and it’s our belief that this rebranding will help deliver even more guests to the resort, allowing travellers from around the world the opportunity to experience all that Rotorua has to offer.”
Ideally positioned just 20 minutes from Rotorua City and three hours from Auckland, the Ramada Resort Rotorua Marama boasts 78 self-contained apartments complete with fully-equipped kitchens, state-of-the-art bathrooms, outdoor decks and all the creature comforts of home including washing machines and dryers. The resort’s facilities include a private boat ramp and berth, boat parking, trout fishing, outdoor pool and spa, barbecue areas, gym and tennis court.
