Rivasa Resort- Rivasa Resort had been on a look-out to grow their online presence. While the reviews and feedback from existing customers were positive, the ability to gain new customers through their website was a difficult task. OTA bookings were the only way of obtaining new customers but the sheer number of hotels on these platforms resulted in very less conversions. After joining hands with Simplotel and creating an SEO friendly & interactive website, the direct bookings for Rivasa have increased by an impressive 400% within a few months.
Our Native Village- A similar problem was faced by the eco-friendly accommodation provider Our Native Village. This one-of-a-kind resort on the outskirts of Bangalore is a hidden gem loved by its patrons. What the management required was a product which would enhance online visibility and guarantee higher number of online bookings. A partnership with Simplotel and implementation of solutions resulted in direct bookings doubling as compared to the bookings received in the previous year.
Central Hotels- Within a few months of implementing the Simplotel Solution, the overall traffic on Central Hotel jumped by more than 400%. This can be attributed to the superior quality website and search engine optimisation techniques of Simplotel. Since coming on the Simplotel platform, Central Hotels has received over half a million visits on the website. This has also driven significant growth in phone calls and bookings for the hotel.
Stay Simple- The Simplotel Booking Engine and Simplotel Instant Payments have enabled Stay Simple to increase the number of direct bookings. The result was a 2x increase in direct bookings being received. The Simplotel Reservation Desk Solution with Simplotel Direct Connect, ensures that all reservations or walk-ins get consolidated on a single platform.
