“We are working with expert architects and consultants to deliver a truly international-class resort in Chitwan and look forward to welcoming guests to our resort by 2024.”

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts market managing director for Eurasia Nikhil Sharma said: “Our upper midscale brand Wyndham Garden is growing from strength to strength and we are excited to announce the signing of our first Wyndham Garden in Nepal at Chitwan.
