Hotel Belmar is a family-owned boutique hotel in Costa Rica, offering 22 rooms and 3 newly-constructed suites amidst the enchanting Monteverde Cloud Forest. For the past three months, they have benefited from the services of LoungeUp, which is dedicated to the hotel industry to make their guests’ stay more fluid and personal. Whether it is through its customer portal or pre and post stay emails, the hotel accompanies its customers throughout their stay well before their arrival and well after their departure.
"The LoungeUp tools simplify the work of our teams and allow us to meet and exceed the needs of our customers. They have access to all the activities we offer from their smartphone, from bird watching and nocturnal hikes through the cloud forest, to coffee-picking and horseback riding through the farm that sustains our restaurant’s farm-to-table philosophy".
"After only a few weeks, 50% of our customers now use our application, notably it is used to book spa treatments, a table at our restaurant, private transportation, and local activities. Travellers, particularly those who do not speak the language, very much appreciate the ease of ordering and the possibility to access all of our services from their room".
"We contact the customers before their stay by inviting them to reserve additional services (massage, visit to the farm, …) for their stay, or a pick-up from the airport, and it works well. We manage to generate an additional turnover of $700 per month on average through pre-stay emails, thus making a profit that far exceeds the monthly fee" Says Pedro Belmar, manager of Hotel Belmar.
"Contacting our clients during ‘pre-stay’ allows us to reassure them before their arrival and help them prepare for their stay. We interact with them extensively before they arrive to answer any questions they may have, and this exchange continues once they arrive at the hotel. The customer-portal is very appealing to our customers and fits perfectly into our day-to-day work" explains Diane Mahoney, concierge at Hotel Belmar.
