04th November 2022

Prime Plaza Hotels and Resorts (PPHR) has finalised a partnership with Netral Port (NTP) to provide turnkey online direct booking services for agents, wholesalers & corporates within the Trip Affiliates Network (TA Network) ecosystem

In addition, TA Network's digital payment solutions empower hotel clients with virtual cards or virtual bank account services to process payments from their global contractors designed to minimise cross border & FX fees

Based in Indonesia with over two decades of operations, PPHR is hotel chain headquartered in Jakarta. The company operates a hotel & resort chain, with brand names such as Prime Plaza, Prime Biz & Prime Resort in multiple locations across the Indonesian archipelagos a well-respected 4 Star hospitality establishment. PPHR manages 14 resorts, villas & hotels, representing over 2060 daily room nights in operation

Feryianto Wid- Director of Sales Prime Plaza Hotels & Resorts adds, “TA Network/NTP solutions has enabled PPHR to manage digitally the conservative wholesale contract process with the full functionality of lead time, booking windows or stay pattern promotion, which makes our B2B distribution efficiently, enabling PPHR to manage dynamic rates with the same level of efficiency with an OTA working with dynamic wholesalers. With this direct booking service on TA Network, travel wholesalers & agents can enjoy the dynamic availability & rates through the instant access to our hotels’ best available rates.
