WHG Europe’s Middle East and Africa senior vice president and managing director Rui Barros said that the company is pleased to welcome yet another Wyndham Hotels and Resorts property in Turkey.

"The popularity of the recently opened Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina has proven there is strong demand for the Wyndham brand in the country," Barros added.

In Turkey, WHG operates hotels under three brands: Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, TRYP by Wyndham and Ramada.
