(PRWEB) April 3, 2007
Agoda, an independent online travel company that specializes in securing the most competitive hotel prices in Asia and throughout the world, today announced a strategic distribution agreement with WorldHotels for the Asia Pacific region.
With a portfolio of more than 500 hotels and resorts in more than 300 destinations and 70 countries worldwide, WorldHotels is a carefully selected portfolio of hotels that guarantee clearly-defined, high quality standards and service levels and history of independently managed hotels.
WorldHotels has a portfolio of more than 80 hotels and resorts throughout Asia. With this agreement, Agoda adds to its network of more than 27,000 hotels.
"We are delighted to partner with Agoda Company. Their reputation and reach are quite impressive in promoting hotel properties within this region," says Roland Jegge, WorldHotels' Vice President, Asia Pacific. We believe Agoda will foster consumer decisions based on value rather than on price alone and help promote the strengths of our members' properties."
Wilfred Fan, Agoda Company's Vice President, Business Development believes continually adding top properties to its network is of paramount importance to reach more consumers. "WorldHotels is an ideal partner since all the properties in their portfolio share a commitment to the highest quality and world-class service standards," Fan says. "This means we can offer consumers selection, but, more importantly, peace of mind when they are booking through Agoda.com."
The agreement will benefit existing Agoda partners such as the Harbour Plaza Metropolis Hotel Hong Kong, Goodwood Park Hotel in Singapore and Evergreen Laurel Hotel Bangkok, that are also members of WorldHotels.
The integration will increase availability of rooms to Agoda customers and streamline the communication between the hotels and Agoda.
"Agoda.com is committed to offering the best available rates at the best properties for business and leisure travelers," Fan says. "This agreement helps us meet that goal."
