As part of its expansion across Southeast Asia and the South Pacific, Hotel Link Solutions have appointed Bali Discovery Tours – Bali’s leading destination management company as the exclusive sales agent of its digital solutions to local businesses in the hospitality and tourism industry.

The new division of the Bali-based company, operating as Hotel Link Solutions – Bali is licensed to use an advanced software system that provides digital marketing solutions primarily for small to medium sized hotels, guest houses, condotels and villas. By providing fully-functional websites incorporating a state-of-the-art booking engine, accommodation providers obtain a level of control over their pricing and inventory, previously only available to branded hotels. Hotel Link Solutions also provides hotels and villas with travel channel management featuring real-time instant access to leading On-Line-Travel-Agents (OTAs) ensuring the widest distribution of their room inventories.

Hotel Link Solutions-Bali now has in place a dedicated team of professionals able to quickly and efficiently enhance the online presence of local accommodation providers. Options offered to by Hotel Link Solutions-Bali include booking widgets for established websites, template-driven websites and channel management.

Chandra Himawan

Heading Hotel Link Solutions-Bali is Chandra Himawan, a Jakarta native, and a multi-degree holder with degrees in hotel management from Trisakti University and the University of Salamanca in Spain.

Prior to heading Hotel Link Solutions-Bali, Chandra worked for several years as a broadcaster with TV One in Jakarta, undertaking a number of overseas broadcast assignments.

“We understand that e-enabling small accommodations providers is the next step in Bali and the rest of Indonesia to improving the service quality and increasing revenue in the tourism industry,” stated André Franchini, CEO of Hotel Link Solutions. “Also, by providing the right solutions to hoteliers, they will have more control of their online presence, which is key in any successful marketing strategy.”

Joining the Bali-based project in December 2012 and undergoing a period of training at an international gathering of Hotel Link Solutions professionals in Vietnam, Chandra Himawan is now busily signing up hotel and villas in Bali and other parts of Indonesia.

Said Chandra: “It is particularly rewarding to be able to offer a low-cost digital marketing solution to Indonesia accommodation providers that virtually eliminates the cost of maintaining an in-house IT department, empowers owners and operators with new real time flexibility in pricing and inventory control, and has a proven ability to increase on-line bookings through on-line linkages we facilitate with major OTAs.”
