Jeff Kraus, Operations Manager, has a lot on his plate overseeing Samui Bayside Luxury Villas and Samui Sunsets Luxury Villas in Koh Samui, Thailand. Travellers staying at these properties are offered flexible room types along with stunning ocean and sunset views. With prime locations that are just minutes from amazing beaches, guests can also enjoy infinity pools and fully equipped kitchens.
Why it matters: Given life at a busy small property never stops, Jeff and the team needed to find ways to maintain all their daily responsibilities while simultaneously managing the all-important task of property admin.
  • For small properties with tight budgets, the bottom line really matters. Any increase in revenue and profit can make a huge difference to long-term success.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Being able to manage a property ‘on the go’ has become a crucial part of running a successful accommodation business, with mobile apps paving the way for owners and operators to gain more freedom and control. With Little Hotelier’s newly upgraded app, this is exactly what Jeff has found.
  • More control: Little Hotelier’s mobile app enable hoteliers to manage their property from the palm of their hands, and has given the team at Samui Bayside Luxury Villas the key ingredient they were missing.
