Ramada Resort by Wyndham Phillip Island Unveils its $7.5 million Refurbishment
Ramada Resort by Wyndham Phillip Island, one of the island's largest resorts, has announced the completion of a major renovation plus a host of new features and onsite guest activities.
Known for its idyllic location, Ramada Resort by Wyndham Phillip Island is nestled in nature on 65-acres of beautiful Victorian bushland. It features studio, two and three-bedroom villa accommodation and is accessed by resort guests and members of Club Wyndham South Pacific vacation club. The resort is home to an exceptional range of facilities along with conference and events spaces.
The transformative refurbishment included the renovation of 137 villas and the addition of new Deluxe and Grand villas. The onsite restaurant has also been redesigned with a sleek fit out and an upgrade to its culinary offerings. Renamed Flametrees, the restaurant offers an extensive menu, wine list, cocktail bar, and fireside dining.
The $7.5 million project, which commenced in 2019, provided a significant boost to the local economy with approximately 80 percent of the tradespeople employed either residents of the island or the surrounding areas.
Family-friendly activities introduced at the resort include an outdoor cinema, jumping castles (during school holidays), trivia and bingo nights, scavenger hunts and kite flying competitions. The resort has acquired pedal karts and has converted a walking trail into a mini grand prix track as a nod to Phillip Island's own world famous circuit. Onsite facilities also include a gym, sauna, indoor and outdoor spa, two outdoor swimming pools, a children's wading pool, electric bikes, games room, three tennis courts and a children's playground.
"Guests and Club Wyndham members are enjoying a whole new level of resort experiences, services and amenities. These include refined culinary experiences, enhanced digital services, family activities and upgraded accommodation," said Michael Armour, the resort's General Manager.
With a big focus on sustainability at the resort, workshops are offered where guests can make nesting boxes for native wildlife. New signage educates guests about local flora and fauna, and petrol vans used by staff have now been replaced with electric carts. All furniture that was replaced during the refurbishment was donated to local and Melbourne charities including The Salvation Army, Phillip Island Community and Learning Centre Inc., Sacred Heart Mission, Vinnies and various other local organisations.
"We are currently open to regional Victoria and cannot wait to welcome back more holidaymakers to our 'new look' Ramada Resort by Wyndham Phillip Island. We have stringent hygiene practices in place and offer spacious villa accommodation and plenty of wide-open air space, making it easy to enjoy a wonderful resort stay while also social distancing. Phillip Island has so much to offer as a holiday destination, and here at the resort, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional and memorable guest experiences," said Mr Armour.
