PALMA, SPAIN – Hotelbeds has entered into a strategic partnership with Rosewood Hotel Group, a leading international hotel management company.
The strategic partnership provides Rosewood Hotel Group with access to Hotelbeds’ more than 60,000 travel trade buyers from more than 140 source markets worldwide, including tour operators, airlines, points redemption programs and retail travel agencies.
At the same time, Hotelbeds’ clients will gain access to preferential rates and availability across the 41 properties that form Rosewood Hotel Groups’s portfolio in 19 countries throughout North America, Caribbean/Atlantic, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Rosewood Hotel Group encompasses three brands: ultra-luxury Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® in North America, Caribbean/Atlantic, Europe, the Middle East and Asia; upper-upscale New World Hotels & Resorts in China and Southeast Asia; and KHOS, a dynamic global business lifestyle hotel brand.
Hotelbeds’ portfolio of 60,000 travel trade buyers offers Rosewood Hotel Group’s properties access to incremental, high value bookings from non-domestic markets that typically book further in advance, pay more per room, stay for longer, cancel less and spend more in the destination.
Through this partnership Rosewood Hotel Group’s properties will distribute hotel rooms through Hotelbeds via both its wholesale channel, which operates under the Hotelbeds brand, and the retail travel agent channel, which operates under the Bedsonline brand – all united under one contract.
Jorge Cortes, Global Sourcing Director at Hotelbeds, commented: “Rosewood Hotel Group has become a leading international luxury hotel and resort owner-operator globally thanks to its ambitious expansion and growing presence in the global luxury hospitality arena. So I am certain that our 60,000 travel trade clients – all of whom will offer Rosewood mostly international, high value guests – will be very excited to gain access to special rates and availability from across Rosewood’s portfolio.”
Benjamin Banh, Vice President Field Sales and Marketing, added: “Rosewood Hotel Group’s strategic partnership with Hotelbeds gives us access to an extensive travel trade distribution network worldwide, expanding our reach to more non-domestic and high-value guests once international travel recovers. This complements well our efforts to build on Rosewood’s strong base of long-stay and corporate guests, and to capture accommodation demand from domestic travellers. We continue on a steady path of growth in the world’s most evocative destinations, and we look forward to working with Hotelbeds to grow incremental bookings.”
