TRYP by Wyndham: Chic Stays in the Amazon

TRYP is taking on the Amazon with a new property in Manaus -- and its 10th location in Brazil

TRYP by Wyndham, an urban, lifestyle hotel brand of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, is opening its newest Brazilian hotel in Manaus, capital of the Amazon and a coveted destination in the growing market of northern Brazil.

TRYP by Wyndham hotels are infused with local spirit allowing guests to uncover each destination’s individual culture, and TRYP by Wyndham Manaus is no different: the hotel offers guests insider access to the city and unique natural environment, and is infused with local elements including a 16-foot-tall destination-inspired art piece created by a Brazilian artist.

The new hotel in Manaus offers 166 modern guest rooms, as well as amenities such as parking and free Wi-Fi, plus a rooftop swimming pool and a fitness center. The hotel also has an all-day restaurant serving local Amazonian cuisine with a menu created by Chef Fabio Emanuel with a refined take on local cuisine with favorite local dishes such as Tambaqui Manauara Escabeche, a pungent stew created around a local fish from the river.

“Tryp by Wyndham is a modern, city-connected brand that allows us to be closer to our guests and to offer the best of the city, whether our guests are here on a business or leisure trip,” says Nilson Rocha, General Manager of Tryp by Wyndham Manaus.

The hotel is five minutes from Industrial District III, just 2.2 miles from Eduardo Gomes Airport and close to Vasco and Vasquez Convention Center and Ponta Negra Beach – making Tryp by Wyndham Manaus ideal for business tourism. The hotel has four function rooms with capacity for up to 300 people simultaneously, and exclusive air-conditioned rooms designed to attend meetings and corporate events with personalized attention.

“We are consolidating our presence in strategic locations for our corporate clients, diversifying the portfolio to appeal to both business and leisure travelers to offer countless possibilities for redeeming rewards points through our award-winning loyalty program, Wyndham Rewards,” said Alejandro Moreno, President and CEO of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts for Latin America and the Caribbean.

TRYP by Wyndham is home to 100 hotels in global destinations with distinct personalities like Abu Dhabi, Brisbane, New York City, Xian and Dubai, the brand’s largest hotel at 650 rooms. This is TRYP’s 10th Brazilian location, joining hotels in São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto and Belo Horizonte, and the first in the country’s increasingly popular northern region.

Growth in Hotel Demand in Northern Brazil

Demand for international hotel rooms has risen sharply in northern Brazil over the past few years. Brazil’s Ministry of Tourism indicates that this is the fastest-growing region for hotels in Brazil, especially during the second quarter of 2019. The same study shows it is the region with the highest potential of this sector in the country, mostly due to increased demand of guests from other countries, namely United States and Europe visiting for business or leisure.

According to the October 2019 FOHB (Brazil Hotel Operators Forum), the northern region of Brazil had a 1.9% growth in occupancy rate and 8.3% in the average daily rate compared to the previous year.

Tryp by Wyndham Manaus is just minutes from Ponta Negra Beach, with easy access to the city’s main tourist attractions, such as the Amazon Arena, and therefore attracts a significant percentage of Americans who practice sport fishing, a public who is familiar with the brand due to its presence in the United States and around the world.
