STAAH Technology Chosen For the Jewel in the Crown of Indian Hospitality

Leading cloud distribution platform, STAAH has announced the addition of the luxurious Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa to its network.

Located in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, the 85-room resort boasts views of the mighty Himalayas and conifer forest, spa, a heated pool and a number of dining options. Located a short walk from Gulmarg’s top attractions, the gondola and wildlife sanctuary, it is a magnet for leisure travellers, from families to couples.

As it aims to strengthen its domestic footprint and expand global reach, the luxury accommodation provider has chosen STAAH to provide seamless distribution via its Max Channel Manager and stay ahead of competition with RateSTalk. STAAH Max channel manager integrates with more than 200 online travel agents (OTAs) globally.

“STAAH, in my opinion, is the most well-rounded and comprehensive distribution management system that allows you to efficiently and effectively reach and attract guests,” said M. C. Dashora, Director Finance, The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa.

Founded on STAAH’s reliable and sustainable technology, it offers advanced smart rates and availability management features including dynamic pricing and drip feed that allows you to maximise profitability of every room.

“The connection has already seen our reach increase and we’re seeing bookings go up despite the current travel environment,” noted Dashora, who also commented on STAAH’s simple interface.

“It is designed with a user-first approach. We have been able to easily train our staff and get up and running with STAAH in no time.”

He is also appreciative of the hands-on support the local STAAH team extended to the group to set-up and manage the platform.

“We are delighted to be the technology partner of choice for The Khyber Resort & Spa,” expressed Tarun Joukani – Commercial Director- STAAH.

“We are confident our distribution solution will allow the resort to increase its global visibility and increase bookings, profitably.”
