Treat Resort Group found the solution they were looking for when they invested in STAAH – and much more.
Crafted for leisure and corporate travellers, Treat Resort Group has two resorts located in Western India, one in Silvassa [U.T. of Dadra & Nagar Haveli] and Gholvad [Maharashtra]. Conveniently located, tastefully furnished and kitted with modern amenities, the two resorts are an ideal holiday destination.
Treat Resort Silvassa is a luxury gateway spread across 24 acres and features 191 rooms, an infinity swimming pool, recreation facilities, an in-house water park, 6 conference halls and two Pillarless Ballrooms. Popular with travellers from Mumbai & South Gujarat especially from Ahmedabad, Vadodara and Surat, Treat Resort Silvassa offers scenic views. It is also easily accessible from the numerous nature experiences that have put this little town on the tourist map.
Treat Beach Resort & Spa Gholvad is a luxury boutique resort, easily accessible from Mumbai and South Gujarat. It offers sprawling grounds, 2 banquet halls and multiple restaurants. It’s idyllically located and decorated for weddings and corporate events, whilst offering numerous activities and facilities that would delight families on vacation.
The challenge: Inventory management was difficult and riddled with errors
Whilst Treat Resort Group prides itself in delivering a modern and exceptional guest experience; its OTA inventory management was stuck in the past. Till about years ago, rate and inventory updates had to be made manually via the extranet of online channels.
This led to a range of issues across both group properties, including the inability to run a dynamic price strategy to drive revenue optimisation, errors when updating rates and inventory as the process was manual across multiple online channels, and less than optimal use of staff time. It was all too much to input manually, and the growing needs of the group meant that the online channels would only increase.
STAAH was a welcome investment
After assessing multiple channel managers, the team at Treat Resort Group settled with STAAH Channel Manager, choosing it for its “intuitive back-end that lets users streamline availability and rates from a single dashboard,” says Vivek Mundra, Director from Treat Resort Group.
Looking to grow commission-free direct bookings as a channel, Treat Resort Group also signed up to STAAH ConvertDirect booking engine.
“We use different rate plans and promo codes using STAAH,” says Vivek, “and this is been great to effectively drive up revenue. Traffic scripts help us identify campaign sources so campaign marketing is data-led and more efficient.”
“In today’s hyper-competitive market, keeping a finger on the pulse of the market is critical. RateSTalk enables this from a single dashboard through which rates and inventory are updated. “The rates management process is seamless, from insights to updates,” adds Vivek.
“Since joining the STAAH network, we have steadily improved our occupancy and revenue through online channels,” says Vivek.
Treat Resort Group has increased the number of online channels in its remit resulting in more online bookings. More importantly, the increase in channels has not come packaged with increased administration time in making the updates or errors.
