From Cumbersome To Profitable And Streamlined: The Upsell Transformation At Amari Phuket, Part Of ONYX Hospitality

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at ONYX Hospitality Group to verify this case study.
Amari Phuket is a stunning, 5-star resort nestled in the secluded part of Patong Beach, Thailand. Part of the ONYX Hospitality Group, the resort provides guests with a private paradise featuring captivating views and a variety of enticing guest experiences and activities. Andres Abril, the Director of Revenue at the ONYX Hospitality Group, has shared his insights on how Oaky played a crucial role in making the upselling process seamless and effective, addressing their major pain point — manual upselling that yielded limited results and was cumbersome to implement.
Why it matters: According to Andres Abril, the resort recognised the necessity for a tool like Oaky when they realised the importance of having a reliable upsell software solution to streamline and automate their upselling strategies.
  • The manual upselling process was time-consuming and didn't significantly enhance the guest experience. Hence, they began searching for a user-friendly solution not only to streamline upsells but also ensure personalised, guest experiences, ultimately serving as a driver for additional revenue.

Top 3 Core Objectives: The resort has been looking for a tool that ensures automation while generating extra revenue and being easy to use.
  • Automation: Given that the hotel's primary challenge was the lack of upsell automation, their adoption of Oaky was focused on streamlining processes.

  • Simplicity: For the resort, it was crucial to use a solution that offers a simple and intuitive interface with a short learning curve.

  • Enhanced revenue: The software's ability to boost upsell revenue was equally important.
