Wyndham Hotel Group announced the continued rapid expansion of its Ramada® brand in the South Pacific with the signing of a franchise agreement for the waterfront 80-room Ramada Resort Akiriki in Vanuatu’s capital, Port Vila, on the island of Efate. Ramada Resort Akiriki is located within close proximity to the area’s many attractions, including stunning beaches and islands, and offers guests immediate access to an array of water sports such as snorkeling, diving and jet skiing.
One of the most popular activities amongst visitors to the island of Efate is a trip to Mele Cascades, a series of beautiful waterfalls, which are only a 15-minute drive from Port Vila.
The AUD$30M development, expected to open in January 2016, is located five minutes from the heart of Port Vila and just a 10-minute drive from Bauerfield International Airport. The four-star resort is nestled on the cliffs of Erakor Lagoon, offering guests unobstructed views of the sandy white beaches and turquoise waters of Erakor Island.
Currently under construction by owner Akiriki Limited, the hotel will offer studios and one- and two-bedroom suites. It will feature state-of-the-art facilities including an onsite restaurant and bar, a swimming pool, a gym and two conference rooms that will accommodate up to 140 guests.
