Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts has announced plans to double its footprint of 54 properties across 23 countries by 2025 with the introduction of 5 new brands launching in the next 1 and a half years.
The hospitality group will introduce the new Garrya, Homm and Folio brands, as well as two brand extensions of Banyan Tree named Veya and Escape, in 2022. The portfolio expansion supports new milestones in the group’s RevPAR, which improved 18% in the first nine months of the year when compared to the same period in 2020.
So far in 2021, the group has opened 7 hotels, including last month’s opening of the first Garrya Huzhou Lucun in China, which was followed by the debut of Homm Bliss Southbeach Patong and soft-opening of Banyan Tree Veya Phuket.
Banyan Tree says that each of the 5 new brands to be released are responses to macro and regional trends in travel accelerated by COVID-19’s impact such as conversion opportunities in resort destinations, emerging second-tier tourism destinations, as well as a greater desire for wellbeing and sustainability-minded travel offerings.
