The Mulia Hotels & Resorts Secures A Partnership Agreement With 

Trip Affiliates Network

Hotel group will use online direct booking solutions for offline travel agencies, wholesalers & corporate travel intermediaries

20th November 2022

The Mulia Hotels & Resorts (MUHR) is a leading independent luxury hotel group comprising 5 properties in Indonesia with a total room count of 1700, including internationally acclaimed & award-winning

Trip Affiliates Network (TA Network) is a leading cloud-based technology solutions provider in the travel & hospitality sector. Its high-performance distribution & turnkey solutions, facilitated with robust connectivity & digital payment services, bring together Asia Pacific hotels, travel wholesalers, operators & destination management companies in a single open travel ecosystem

This latest partnership will enable MUHR to access TA Network’s online direct booking solutions for offline travel agencies, wholesalers & corporate travel intermediaries. MUHR will use the full functionality of lead time, booking windows or stay pattern promotion, whilst managing dynamic rates with their agents & wholesalers at the same functionality level as OTAs

The TA Network platform is designed to leverage on technology solutions adopted by hotels. TA Network Partners can facilitate their direct connectivity, automate their inventory & payment management processes with their traditional offline contractors, which would otherwise require both parties to manually update their booking inventory & retrieve booking confirmations. This also eliminates overbooking/under-booking issues associated with room allotments as well as potential human errors in manually maintaining hotel contracts. In addition, TA Network’s digital payment solutions empower hotel clients with virtual card or virtual bank account services to process payments from their global contractors designed to minimise cross border & FX fees

Bagus Artadi, Director – Revenue & Digital Distribution of The Mulia Hotel said, “TA Network solutions has enabled Mulia Hotels & Residences to manage the conservative wholesale contract digitally which makes our B2B distribution more efficient & effective. Additionally, we will have access to business opportunities to work with several major channels integrated with the TA Network & our onboarding process with new partners will be faster.”

TA Network’s Managing Partner Ho Siang Twang adds, “In a post-COVID environment where there are widespread staffing shortages, hotels need to implement an even higher level of automation in managing their direct booking partnerships with their preferred agents & corporates. We are excited that MUHR has chosen to adopt TA Network Hotel B2B Direct Booking services which gives their business channels easy online access to MUHR while substantially reducing manual administrative processes in engaging these channels with our process automation solutions & seamless online payment services.”

MUHR properties have been awarded six prestigious awards by Condé Nast, with the latest award placing Mulia Bali as the #1 Beach Resort in the World
