LOWCOSTBEDS TRIPLES ITS HOTEL COUNT IN THE CARIBBEAN
Fast-growing online B2B travel company continues its expansion
SCOTTSDALE, AZ—July 16, 2013 – Lowcostbeds, the Swiss-based bed bank, part of the lowcosttravelgroup, today announced it is delighted with its current direction towards achieving a global position in the international market as an accommodation only provider.
Following an increase in demand from the UK, Irish and North American markets, lowcostbeds is rapidly expanding its hotel portfolio in the Caribbean. By tripling the number of directly contracted hotels in Jamaica, it now has an extensive range of three, four and five star properties offering all board options, throughout the 350 hotels on the island.
In December 2013, lowcostbeds will see the opening of one of its flagship properties in Montego Bay, the four star Garden Beach Resort which will be offering all inclusive stays, set in tropical gardens with direct beach access and a 4.5 star Trip Advisor rating.
Lowcostbeds is predicting further passenger growth in the Dominican Republic, Aruba, Puerto Rico and Bahamas and therefore has enhanced its adult-only hotels in Barbados. Recent additions include such properties as Couples Barbados and The Club Barbados. Family-focused hotels in Antigua have also been increased with the inclusion of properties such as Jolly Beach, Grand Pineapple, St James’s Club and the Verandah.
Managing Director for Ireland, USA and Canada, Clem Walshe commented, “We are excited about the Caribbean overall. As we look across our portfolio of 150,000 hotels, the region represents excellent value for money for North American and European customers.
