Brand-new home rental booking platform ‘Stayy with Hostmaker’
launches exclusively in Bangkok
1 November 2018 (Bangkok, Thailand)
Hostmaker, the leading European home rental management company, launches new bookings platform: Stayy with Hostmaker
Debuting in Bangkok, this new platform allows guests to book stays in Bangkok from 1 month to 1 year, ensuring compliance with local laws and regulations
Guests can choose from exceptional homes in great locations across Bangkok, with the assurance of 24/7 personal service, and total flexibility
– Hostmaker, the leading European home rental management company, has today announced plans to launch its own home sharing platform ‘Stayy with Hostmaker’.
In a global exclusive, this brand-new platform is debuting in Thailand ahead of Hostmaker’s existing European markets, in order to serve the growing demand for high-end, vetted accommodation in Bangkok. ‘Stayy’ allows visitors and expats to search
for medium and long-term accommodation, on a flexible contract, with the assurance that all properties are legal and have been vetted by Hostmaker’s experts.
Established in 2014 in London, Hostmaker has hosted more than 250,000 guests
and generated more than £50 million (2.1 billion Thai baht) for homeowners to date. Hostmaker was the winner in the “Best Short Term Rental Platform” category at the Serviced Apartment Award last year, based on its record of bringing higher yields for its homeowners and memorable experiences for their guests. Since launching in Bangkok in September 2018 Hostmaker has grown quickly - with over 50 properties now in its Thai portfolio.
Fully compliant with local regulations, Hostmaker vets all properties and only leases them for a minimum of 30 days. It is currently difficult for visitors to Bangkok to find a legal property to rent for a month upwards, so Hostmaker has created Stayy: a platform that enables users to book home rentals with assurances of personal service, flexibility and security with just one click.
Nakul Sharma, CEO and Founder of Hostmaker, commented: “Bangkok is the most visited city in the world, with good reason! Millions of tourists, students, expats and business travellers flock here every year, looking for legal and vetted properties to hire for at least a month and up to a year, making it the perfect market for us to launch Stayy with Hostmaker. The local market regulations around short-term lets provides us with the perfect environment for our brand-new medium to long term lettings platform, and we’re excited to be debuting Stayy in Bangkok”
The key features of the Stayy platform are:
Exceptional properties, hand-selected for their outstanding design, quality and comfort
Top Bangkok locations, thoughtfully considered with a variety of options to suit guest needs, from vibrant city-centre condos to tranquil neighbourhoods
Round the clock personal service, with local experts at the end of the phone 24/7 to support guests during their search and throughout their stay
Total flexibility, however long guests are planning to stay, they won’t be tied into a strict contract, and the whole process is hassle-free
To serve such demand and needs for consumers, Hostmaker is working with its key investor Sansiri, Thailand’s leading full-service real estate developer, to identify key property opportunities in Bangkok, including The XXXIX, Hasu Haus, Keyne by Sansiri and The Monument Sanampao.
Nakul Sharma added: “Stayy with Hostmaker takes us a step further in our mission to unlock the potential of every home in Bangkok, bringing our hotel-quality homes to a new breed of travellers. Through Stayy, we will deliver unique homes and unique experiences to Bangkok.”
