MANILA, Philippines – Technology-based hotel management company RedDoorz recently showcased its safe and affordable offerings as it prepares for the upcoming holiday season.

Earlier this month, the budget hotel launched the #TuloyTuloyLang campaign that highlights new moments and experiences Filipinos can look forward to for the holiday season with its more affordable, accessible, and tech-focused hotel stays. .

Miguel Capistrano III, Country Manager of RedDoorz Philippines, assured the public that the hotel chain’s properties follow health and safety protocols.

“It’s in our nature to travel, to go out even a short distance, to have a good time with loved ones and to celebrate new moments and experiences, especially during the holidays. As restrictions begin to ease, Filipinos are eager to resume travel and RedDoorz is ready to offer them hotel stays that are now more accessible, affordable, tech-savvy and still health conscious. ” , said at a roundtable earlier this month.

“We are even improving the training of our property managers and hotel staff, as well as the implementation of refresher courses for our partner hotels to maintain the RedDoorz standard and the integration of regional tourism so that our partners can better understand the new trends and demands of local travel. ,” he added.

As of November, the hotel management company had more than 300 properties and had opened hotels in major leisure destinations across the country such as Cebu, Bohol, Boracay, Davao, Palawan, Siargao and Zambales.

It also acquired hotels in Manila, Cebu and Tagaytay.

In June of this year, RedDoorz also launched its lifestyle economy concept brand Sans Hotels, which is design-driven and targets the young market that has been stranded amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Capistrano cited that there is a so-called “pent-up travel demand” from travelers who are happy to get out of their homes and travel safely.

Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and evolving travel restrictions, Capistrano is optimistic about the prospects for the tourism industry.

He cited that the hotel chain brand had reached 96% direct bookings this year.

“Our occupancy rate has increased an average of 41% this year, which shows that there are good signs for us and for the tourism industry. Thus, with our many hotel offers, we will offer more affordable and accessible hotels to be able to respond to this “desire” to travel and this need to go out even a few steps from home, ”said the national director.

“‘Tuloy-tuloy lang’ projects better days for us, for our partners, and even for every Filipino traveler as there are signs of a rebound in tourism,” he added.

The National Capital Region is currently under Alert Level 2 of the general community quarantine until November 30.

In this classification, intra-zonal and inter-zonal movements are allowed

Earlier this month, the Tourism Ministry welcomed the drop to Alert Level 2, saying it would benefit the tourism industry.

“Travel restrictions relaxed under this alert level will greatly help tourism businesses bounce back and maximize the opportunities offered by the holiday season,” Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said on November 5.
