Domaine de Biar, a picturesque 18th-century property transformed into a luxurious 4-star hotel, offers guests an elegant getaway surrounded by nature. When Domaine de Biar discovered the potential of Duve, they eagerly embraced the opportunity to enhance guest experiences and streamline their operations. In this case study, we delve into how Domaine de Biar harnessed Duve's capabilities to achieve remarkable results in terms of ROI, operational efficiency, and guest satisfaction.
Why it matters: In today's competitive hospitality industry, providing exceptional guest experiences goes beyond offering comfortable accommodations.
  • Guests seek personalized interactions, convenience, and seamless processes. By partnering with Duve, Domaine de Biar aimed to not only meet but exceed guest expectations. This commitment to guest satisfaction not only enhances the property's reputation but also contributes to increased loyalty.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Domaine de Biar's objectives revolved around three key areas: improving guest communication, maximizing upselling opportunities, and enhancing operational efficiency.
  • Effective Guest Communication: Domaine de Biar aimed to streamline guest communication by replacing manual processes with automated tools. The goal was to ensure prompt and consistent responses to guest inquiries and to eliminate the need for tracking phone numbers or managing multiple communication channels.

  • Maximizing Upsell Opportunities: The property sought to maximize revenue by promoting add-on services such as breakfast, early check-in, massages, and late check-out. The challenge was to effectively promote these services to guests and encourage their purchase.

  • Enhancing Operational Efficiency: As the property expanded, managing guest interactions and requests became increasingly complex. Domaine de Biar recognized the need for a unified platform to streamline operations and simplify the check-in process, especially for late arrivals.
