October 27, 2022 – When researching a hotel online, travelers are looking for websites that immerse them in a destination and inspire them to book. With this in mind and building on their successful launch of La Colección Resorts by Fiesta Americana website, Posadas has once again partnered with Amadeus to create new custom websites across its 185 hotels and 9 brands.
Posadas is leveraging Amadeus’ industry-leading technology and expertise to deliver new branded websites for their portfolio—including Live Aqua, Grand Fiesta Americana, Curamoria Collection, Fiesta Americana, The Explorean, IOH, Fiesta Inn, Gamma, and one. The goal of this partnership is to increase visibility and bookings to subsequently grow revenue, allowing guests to build truly experiential stays.
The websites set a new industry standard for the depth of information available to guests. Hoteliers can list attractions and events, highlight nearby areas of interest, and provide maps for navigation – everything a traveler needs to make an informed decision about where to stay. Additionally, the sites also provide comprehensive information about the property’s ability to host groups, business convention, and weddings, enabling planners and brides alike to secure the destination for their events and coordinate details.
The new web experience, backed by Amadeus’ iHotelier® Booking Engine and digital media campaigns, allows Posadas brands to drive significant results through their website’s direct booking channels thanks to tailored service promotions and upsell opportunities. In fact, when comparing post-launch performance on the new websites to pre-pandemic performance, the new sites drove a 60% increase in direct bookings for luxury properties and a 371% increase in bookings for resort properties.
“We are proud to launch this new web experience and provide guests with an informative and customizable shopping flow while showcasing our beautiful properties,” said Enrique Calderon, Chief Operating Officer, Grupo Posadas. “The Amadeus team continues to demonstrate their understanding of our needs and innovation to deliver more effective solutions for our business.”
“We’re pleased to expand our partnership with Posadas,” said Sergio G Rosarios, Regional Vice President, Latin America & Caribbean, Hospitality, Amadeus. “Our teams worked closely with them to understand their goals and requirements while ensuring that the technology supporting the sites captures maximum growth opportunities.”
As part of previous agreements to drive profitable demand using Amadeus technology, Posadas leverages the Amadeus Integrated Booking Suite, inclusive of the iHotelier Booking Engine, Guest Management, and Web solutions. The company also has access to industry leading market insight with Agency360® and Demand360® to power its GDS media strategies, and partners with Amadeus’ team of digital experts to execute comprehensive digital media campaigns.
