Worldwide: Banyan Tree Group has announced the launch of Habitat, a 12 month pass that enables guests to enjoy long-term stays at properties in more than 30 destinations around the globe.
With a Habitat pass, guests can book stays in a block unit of seven nights, with the choice to hop from one property to another within the same brands in different locations. A maximum of four units can be booked per brand, ranging from seven to 28 nights’ stay.
A discount of 60 per cent is applied to each additional unit purchased, where each unit can be redeemed at a different property during the period of stay.
Travellers are given credits of up to USD$700 based on the number of units purchased, which can be used across amenities such as F&B, spa, wellness activities, and airport transfers.
New features and inclusions will be rolled out based on evolving guest needs as travellers are invited to share their travel wish lists.
Rosalynn Tay, senior vice president, commercial at Banyan Tree Group, said: “We are delighted to launch Habitat, a brand new way of extended stay, across the Banyan Tree Group of hotels, around the world. We recognise that travelling needs have changed; Habitat provides our guests with the flexibility across our different brands, stay periods and amenities. Our properties are natural sanctuaries, always safe and staying relevant. I believe that many different travellers, international and domestic, will find a suitable Habitat in our family of brands.”
There are nine Banyan Tree Hotels in China and four in Thailand. Other brands available under Habitat are Angsana and Cassia, with properties in Indonesia, Maldives, Morocco and across South East Asia.
Banyan Tree Holdings has total of five brands within its portfolio, including Dhawa and Laguna. The group entered a strategic long-term partnership with Accor in 2016 to develop and manage Banyan Tree branded hotels around the world.
