The new properties, consisting of 17 Ramadas, six Days Inns and three Howard Johnsons, are expected to open by 2018. They will be located across South Korea, including Seoul, Pyeongtaek and Jeju Island, a stunning volcanic island and one of the country’s tourist hotspots. The first of these new locations, Ramada Encore Jeju Seogwipo, opened on June 30, 2015.
