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

Early this month, the budget hotel launched the #TuloyTuloyLang campaign highlighting new moments and experiences Filipinos can look forward to this holiday season with their hotel stays that are affordable, accessible and technology-focused.

Miguel Capistrano III, RedDoorz’s regional director for the Philippines, assured the public that the hotel chain’s properties were following health and safety protocols.

“It is in our nature to travel, to go out, even for a short distance, to spend some quality time with loved ones and celebrate new moments and experiences, especially during the holidays. As restrictions begin to ease, Filipinos are looking to make travel happen again, and RedDoorz is ready to provide them with accessible hotel stays. It is now affordable, tech-driven, and still health-conscious,” he said during a roundtable discussion early this month.

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

As of November, the hotel management company owns more than 300 properties and opened hotels located in the country’s top leisure destinations 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 Sans Hotels brand with an economy lifestyle concept, which is based on design and targets the young market that has been shut down amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Capistrano noted that there is a so-called “pent-up demand” of travelers eager to get out of their homes and travel safely.

Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and changing travel restrictions, Capistrano is optimistic about the outlook in the tourism industry.

He noted that the hotel chain’s brand reached 96% of direct bookings this year.

“Our occupancy rate is up 41% this year which reflects that there are good signs for us and the tourism industry. Therefore, through our many hotel offerings, we will be providing more affordable and accessible hotels so that we can overcome the ‘want’ to travel and the need to go out even a few steps from their homes,” the country director said.

“The ‘Tuloy-tuloy lang’ projects present brighter days for us, our partners and even every Filipino traveler as there are signs of tourism turning back,” he added.

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

Under this classification, movements within and between regions are permitted

The Ministry of Tourism early this month welcomed the downgrade to Alert Level 2, saying it would benefit the tourism industry.

“Reduced travel restrictions at this level of alert will greatly help tourism companies recover and maximize the opportunities offered by the holiday season,” Tourism Minister Bernadette Romulo Boyat said on November 5.
