SINGAPORE, 1 October 2021: Hospitality start-up DayAway (mydayaway.com) is now embarking on a new expansion phase to establish itself in key Asian leisure markets such as Hong Kong and Thailand.
The Singapore-based B2B2C platform claims to be the only
online booking site exclusively catering to daytime experiences in Singapore’s
finest hotels. It seeks to disrupt the multibillion-dollar hotel industry by
optimising and monetising luxury hotels’ underutilised ancillary space – such
as F&B, spa, gym and MICE facilities – for daytime use by non-hotel guests.
Since its soft-launch in May after securing the iconic
Raffles Hotel Singapore as its anchor partner, DayAway, generated over USD500,000 in services on
behalf of its hotel partners.
“Our innovative technology and curation of unique
experiences have proven highly effective in helping our hotel partners to
successfully diversify revenue streams and generate profit from non-room
inventory while providing a useful and inspiring resource for local communities
seeking engaging daytime getaways at their favourite hotels,” said DayAway founder Martha Waslen.
The next phase of DayAway’s regional expansion will take
place in key Asian leisure markets such as Hong Kong and Thailand ( Bangkok,
Phuket and Samui).
DayAway’s confirmed hotel partners in Hong Kong include The
Langham and The Grand Hyatt, while its Thai hotel partners include Siam
Kempinski, The Sukhothai Bangkok, Trisara and Hyatt Regency Phuket.
DayAway’s proprietary system allows hotel partners to view
all confirmed bookings, track guest preferences and measure their performance
easily and transparently.
DayAway partners with its hotel partners to create daytime
packages that are highly popular with businesses, many of which purchase
vouchers for their staff to enjoy mental health days at DayAway’s participating
DayAway’s highly anticipated regional experiences include
the pampering “A Suite Day by Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok” (from
THB9,555), which offers executive suite and pool access, breakfast or
three-course lunch and complimentary golf cart transport.
In Hong Kong, DayAway’s “A Day Downtown at the Langham Hong Kong” experience (from HKD1,250) includes Deluxe Courtyard room access, a complimentary bottle of champagne, access to the pool, gym and wellness facilities and 20% F&B privileges across most of The Langham’s popular restaurants.
Based in Singapore, DayAway is a new online B2B2C platform for users to discover and book luxury hotel experiences by the day.
