Filarchipelago Hospitality in the Philippines has chosen Pegasus Connect+ to provide distribution through the global distribution systems (GDSs) and online channels for its full portfolio. The hotel management company signed with Pegasus Solutions after realizing increases in occupancy and bookings with just Pegasus GDS connectivity alone.
“As a relatively new hotel management company, our focus has been to explore GDS distribution with the maximum reach at a reasonable cost. After careful evaluation we selected Pegasus,” said Sunish Sadasivan, corporate director of revenue management and e-distribution for Filarchipelago Hospitality. “We are already seeing increases in occupancy and RevPAR for both corporate and leisure bookings. Further, we are enjoying these benefits at a very affordable price.”
Filarchipelago Hospitality operates two hotels under the 5-star Crimson brand, Crimson Resort & Spa in Mactan, and Crimson Hotel Filinvest City in Manila. It also manages the 3-star Quest Hotel & Conference Center in Cebu City. Focusing on development in Filipino destinations like Manila, Tagaytay and Boracay, Filarchipelago is currently working on another world-class property – a 190-room resort in Boracay that will feature the Crimson brand.
“We’re honored to begin this relationship with Filarchipelago Hospitality as it builds the Crimson and Quest brands on a global level with Pegasus Connect+,” added Rachel Grier, senior vice president of global sales, Asia and the Middle East for Pegasus Solutions. “As with the actual hotel experience, the Filarchipelago team took time to carefully consider and understand how to ensure success with global distribution. Connectivity through Pegasus was an easy ‘yes’.”
