Oct 04, 2016 (LBO) – Vista Rooms, one of South Asia’s brand of budget stays, has launched in the Maldives, targeting the affordable accommodation segment.
“These are exciting times for us. Following our initial success in India and Sri Lanka, Maldives seemed the natural next step owing to its location and its growing draw of tourists,” said Ankita Sheth, co-founder of Vista Rooms.
“However, most travelers will not even consider Maldives because they think it’s beyond their reach. It is perceived as a luxury destination where a single night’s stay can cost hundreds of dollars. There are affordable yet comfortable places to stay available at less than 10,000 rupee per night and by partnering with select properties we aim to change this perception and make the beautiful islands accessible to more travelers.”
Vista Rooms works closely with their partners to ensure that travelers have a consistently smooth experience each time they stay at a property. This is done by embedding their technology at each of the partner hotels, and providing standard amenities across all properties, conducting mystery audits and connecting hotel partners to preferred vendors.
“As we continue to grow our network we are also constantly looking for new synergies. In the future we are looking at introducing special flight and hotel packages to make Maldives a viable holiday option even on a moderate budget,” said another Vista Rooms Co-Founder, Amit Damani.
Vista Rooms follows an asset and people-light model and plans to venture into 5 countries by the end of 2016.
Having opened operations in Sri Lanka in March, Vista Rooms has already built the largest network of branded stays in the country with over 200 properties across 25 cities.
