Insight Comment
Wyndham has been on a roll with its leisure expansion in recent months and this latest agreement will grow its reach across Europe.

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has agreed a deal with operator CLC World Resorts & Hotels to take over the branding of 12 of its properties in a number of leisure destinations across Europe.

Starting from next month, the properties will be converted into a number of Wyndham brands: Wyndham Grand Residences, Wyndham Residences, Wyndham, Ramada Residences by Wyndham and Ramada Hotel & Suites by Wyndham. 

The upper-upscale, upscale and midscale offerings will target families and extended stay guests who want to combine business and leisure.

The new additions will further expand Wyndham’s portfolio of over 300 hotels across the continent.

What They Said

Dimitris Manikis, president, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts EMEA: “We are thrilled to add these outstanding resorts to our growing portfolio and continue to expand our destinations all across Europe. The continued trust of successful independent owners and operators highlights the success of our conversion strategy. We have a strong track-record for helping hospitality businesses benefit from the support and brand recognition that comes from joining the world’s largest hotel franchising company and are excited to begin our journey with CLC World Resorts & Hotels.”

Patrick Ingram, group managing director, CLC World Resorts & Hotels: “What we value about Wyndham, in addition to their tremendous scale and distribution, is their passion for hospitality and outstanding support. We are delighted for our collaboration and are looking forward to welcoming even more travellers to our collection of beautiful resorts and hotels and delivering a wonderful guest experience together with Wyndham.”

What is CLC World?

CLC World was founded by Roy Peires, who purchased his first resort, Las Farolas, on the Costa del Sol in 1984.

The company offered timeshare opportunities at its resorts but discontinued new sales at the end of 2020, when its UK business, Club La Costa (UK) plc, went into administration.

“The closure of Club La Costa’s timeshare sales companies has no impact whatsoever on CLC World’s members, Real Estate owners, or their resorts, all of which continue as usual,” the company said at the time.
