What should you look for this “AUTUMN” in destinations like Thailand and Malaysia?

Try to close your eyes and imagine all the things that would come on your mind as soon as you hear the term “autumn”. Romantic weather, many-colored leaves which are slowly falling, fruits and flowers and all the beautiful things that are dominated by beautiful nature.

While somewhere else is cloudy and affected by coldness, Thailand & Malaysia are warm and sunny. With the tropical climate, make them ideal destinations for people to visit anytime of the year. Also, beautiful beaches where people can enjoy the sun and relax are perfect choices to have rejuvenating breaks. One more thing that you should definitely try when you visit Thailand or Malaysia is the “Moon Cake”

Some of the events that you should look out for this AUTUMN are:

Compass Hospitality acquires The Big Sleep Hotels’ portfolio in UK

big-sleep-hotel

We are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed the acquisition of The Big Sleep Hotels’ portfolio comprising three hotels in Cardiff, Cheltenham and Eastbourne in the United Kingdom.  The acquisition was jointly made with Singapore based Seacare Hospitality Pte Ltd.

When the three hotels were first launched, Travel Trade Gazette described them as “travel lodges with sex appeal”.  Since then, they have undergone refurbishment and cater to business and leisure travelers with a keen eye on good hotel designs and affordability.

All the three hotels are well located.  The 81-key hotel in Cardiff is located in the city centre opposite the Motorpoint Arena and the new St. David’s shopping arcade, all within walking distance of Café Quarter’s al fresco dining street, Cardiff Central railway station and Millennium Stadium.

The 60-key hotel in Cheltenham is located in the shopping hub along Bath Road and a short distance to Cheltenham Town Hall and Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum.

The 50-key hotel in Eastbourne has lovely sea view of the English Channel across the Western Lawns.  It is located 400 metres from Eastbourne Town Centre, 10 minutes’ walking distance from Eastbourne Pier, and 5 minutes’ drive away from Beachy Head’s white cliffs.

All the three hotels have a restaurant and bar as well as meeting rooms.  Guest rooms of various sizes are offered and standard amenities include LCD TV, Wi-Fi, personal safe, hairdryer and coffee/tea making facilities.  As part of providing accommodation to families, the hotels are pet friendly.

The hotels will be managed by us as we are already managing The Lion Hotel Shrewsbury and The White Swan Halifax in the UK as part of a portfolio comprising 49 properties located in Thailand, Malaysia and the UK.

Compass Hospitality’s President & CEO, Harmil Singh said, “We are very pleased with the portfolio acquisition of these three well located and profitable hotels. We will continue to seek out acquisitions and opportunities to grow our presence in the UK.”

Matthew Welbourn, Executive Vice President of UK Operations, added, “Our existing two hotels in Shrewsbury and Halifax have achieved significant performance improvements due to the well established distribution network at Compass Hospitality.  We are confident that similar improvements will be achieved for these additional three hotels.”

SiteMinder solidifies presence in South-East Asia with Compass Hospitality

Siteminder

Bangkok, Thailand – The global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, is pleased today to announce that it has tied-up with our group Compass Hospitality to solidify its presence in South-East Asia.

We operate 42 hotel properties across Thailand, Malaysia and, most recently, the UK with the signing of 400-year-old The Lion Hotel Shrewsbury and The White Swan Halifax.

With an additional 15 properties under development, we feel that SiteMinder  would be a key driver to the expansion of our portfolio which currently comprises hotels, serviced apartments, resorts and spas.

“We are delighted to have SiteMinder as its technology provider for market-leading online distribution. The success of our business’ growth greatly depends on our ability to market ourselves to all travelers – not just those within our dominant markets of Bangkok, Phuket and Kuala Lumpur, but from everywhere in the world – and using SiteMinder’s Channel Manager, we are now in a stronger position than ever to achieve this,” says Tejinder Sidhu, VP Sales & Marketing of Compass Hospitality.

“In addition to the company’s excellent local support, SiteMinder’s Channel Manager provides versatility and strong integration capabilities to our existing channels – including Ctrip and TripConnect instant booking – and all these factors influenced our decision to switch from our previous provider. The platform also offers powerful features that are designed specifically for hotel group businesses, notably the enterprise dashboard, which makes it easy for us to manage all our properties through one central interface.”

The Tourism Authority of Thailand has set a target of 28 million international visitors to Thailand in 2015, with China, the UK, the US, Germany, India and Malaysia featuring among the country’s top 10 source markets for January.1 Meanwhile, over the next 10 years, Kuala Lumpur is aiming to double its tourist arrivals to 16 million with both the spend and average length of stay per visitor expected to increase significantly.2

Kevin Tatem, Director of Sales – Asia at SiteMinder, says local hotel owners and marketers such as Compass Hospitality, who now have access to global travellers, are poised to benefit most from these plans.

“SiteMinder offers a platform for hotels such as Compass Hospitality’s to attract, reach and convert guests from all corners of the globe. In doing so, they can get booked faster online – to increase revenue at a low cost – while taking advantage of powerful data that provides full visibility to their online performance and the capability to forecast ahead.”
