Valor Hospitality Expands Globally Into Asia With Addition of Two Hotels

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. January 08, 2020

Valor Hospitality (Valor) announced today that its new Asia division has been selected to provide hospitality management services to two hotels and a luxury residential property on the world's most populous continent.

The hotels include the continent's first Staybridge Suites in Thonglor, Bangkok, and Thailand's first Holiday Inn & Suites located in the coastal Thai town of Si Racha (both opening in 2020).

Valor Asia was also selected to provide concierge services to Hyde Heritage Thonglor, a 45-floor residential building in Bangkok, Thailand, that includes seven floors of public space and luxury facilities. These concierge offerings include, but are not limited to, housekeeping, laundry, catering and in-room dining, meet and greet, package receiving, and transportation coordination services. The property, tentatively set to open in 2022, is a joint venture between Sumitomo Forestry Co, Ltd. and Grande Asset Hotels and Property PCL.

With its three new properties, Valor Asia will be one of the first to provide third-party hotel management services on the continent.

The company's expansion into Asia comes on the heels of Valor announcing the launch of its Middle East division this summer.

Valor provides nearly 80 hotels across Africa, North America and Europe with a wide range of third-party management services, including food and beverage, capital fundraising, sales and marketing and development services.

"With our entry into Asia, we're setting our sights on helping more property owners on the continent increase profitability, stand out from the competition and wow their guests and residents," says Tomas Kastberg Andersen, Valor Asia's director of operations.

The luxury condo building in Thailand will be Valor's first residential property ever. "While Valor typically provides services to hotels, that same dedication to top-notch service easily transfers to the needs of luxury condo-building owners looking to differentiate themselves from the competition by applying hospitality-style amenities to residential properties," says Dulaphan Amatyakul, managing director of Valor Asia. "We're looking forward to providing every resident of Hyde Heritage Thonglor the same high-quality experience they'd enjoy at any Valor hotel."

Social Media: Social Listening Tools

The reach and influence of social media is staggering. Nearly 3 billion people use social media daily, posting a range of messages, selfies, images, and everything in-between. According to HubSpot, almost 4 million posts are uploaded to the major social networks every single minute! That's an astounding amount of content and it is crucial for hotels to skillfully use social media in order to effectively compete. From establishing a suitable brand identity and voice to creating content across all the major networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), the goal is to actively engage consumers and to eventually convert them to customers. Some hotels are initiating online contests as a way to attract new customers, while others are rewarding customers with discounts who subscribe to the their email lists or follow their social media pages. Another recent strategy is to employ social media listening tools that track what people are posting online about their businesses. These tools allow hotels to monitor - or listen to - what's being said about a brand across the entire social web, and this can prove to be very valuable, unfiltered information. Social listening permits hotels to be aware of people's opinions about their business, industry or competitors, and some of these tools even listen beyond social media platforms. They also monitor publicly available information on blogs, forums, news outlets and websites. Some listening tools are more focused on gathering and analyzing data, while others offer more engagement-oriented features, which allow hotels to interact with people right from the platform. Often the information that is gleaned from these listening tools ends up being the most authentic, unbiased insights a business can get. The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to successfully integrate social media strategies into their operations.
