Wyndham Group that has nearly 80 hotels in Turkey has set its eye on the residences while progressing toward its target of reaching 100 hotels in 2020. In line with requests from Turkish investors, the group has rolled up sleeves to operate residences with the hotel concept.
Currently, the group is working on two projects – Wyndham Residence and Ramada Residence. With the project planned to be implemented in 2020, idle residences will be evaluated with the hotel concept and new bed supplies will be provided. The project is said to serve middle-segment tourists.
Wyndham EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) Chairman Dimitris Manikis told that on Saturday that they have been examining the infrastructure for Wyndham Residence and Ramada Residence, adding that they have seen that there is serious potential. They plan to implement it by 2020. We can implement this project, arising from Turkey, in countries with potential.
Turkey has a huge and strong potential. You have so many stories to tell. We have a lot of work to do here and we are very happy to be in Turkey.
Touching on the share and accommodation tax to be paid by hotels for the Promotion Agency in Turkey, Manikis stated that many tourism countries around the world have such practices. For instance, we all admire Finland’s social services such as education and health. Yet there are taxes of up to 70% in the country. With these taxes, the state can provide good services. What is important is that taxes are being used properly. If taxes are used correctly, very good results are obtained.
