Tree House Lodge is the prime choice for those who are looking for “a cosy home away from home” in Nusa Dua, Bali. Up and running since 2017, this luxurious and comfortable inn offers 10 types of bedrooms equipped with free Wi-Fi, laundry service, easy access to nearby beaches, among other facilities.
Why it matters: Tree House Lodge is regularly the go-to destination for local and foreign tourists, whether they come with families, couples, or even backpackers.
  • Based in a strategic location on the 'Island of the Gods' is certainly a plus point for the Tree House Lodge. However, any hotel can easily lack optimal service simply because of the challenges posed by manual work. According to the Tree House Lodge Owner, Doddy Suharja, this exact issue was one of the hotel’s main concerns. Doddy explained about the hardship of facing the challenges of updating prices and inventory management at online travel agents (OTA).

Top 3 Core Objectives: Tree House Lodge was looking for the perfect technology solution to help them with their mission to make guests feel right at home, minimise human error, reduce manual inventory and price updates, provide data reports to help with daily operations and provide the insight needed to escalate outstanding service.
  • Managing reservations easily: Tree House Lodge Hotel needed a simple system to manage reservations and easily accommodate room arrangements.
