PLAYA SAN DIEGO, NICARAGUA—Wyndham Hotel Group is expanding its upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand in Latin America with the addition of the 212-key Wyndham Milagro del Mar Resort here on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast.
The beachfront hotel, currently under construction, will become Wyndham’s first property in Nicaragua. Owned and developed by HB International, the property is scheduled to open in 2014.
The company announced its 100th hotel in the region late last year and, as of December 31, had 73 properties in the pipeline in Latin America.
“Latin America is full of opportunity-rich markets that are vital to our global growth plans,” said Daniel del Olmo, Wyndham Hotel Group’s SVP/managing director of Latin America.
The centerpiece of a 2,500-plus-acre, master-planned community on more than three miles of beachfront, Wyndham Milagro del Mar Resort is located one hour west of Nicaragua’s capital city of Managua and the country’s international airport.
The hotel will offer amenities such as beach access, a beachfront pool, a 27-hole golf course, surfing and surf shop, spa services, tennis and horseback riding. On-site concierge services, wireless Internet access and satellite television also will be available.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
