The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts has capitalised on the evolving Crypto space, to bolster its guest experiences by becoming the first global boutique hotel group to accept Cryptocurrency from any country for hotel bookings.

It comes as the tourism industry adapts to a new future following the pandemic – further embracing the digitalisation of the payment journey and overall user experience.  

As part of the link, The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts has linked with global Crypto-payment gateway, Coindirect, enabling customers to pay with Bitcoin, Ethereum and 40 other virtual currencies confidently and securely, 24/7.

Jesse Hemson-Struthers, CEO and Co-founder of Coindirect, commented on the firm’s growth: “We pride ourselves on providing partners a platform for instant secure payments with over 40 Cryptocurrencies; this was a critical factor for The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts to ensure the end-to-end payment service is safe, flexible and easy for guests, when booking their next experience at any of The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts’ across the globe.

“Guests can take advantage of paying in the Cryptocurrency of their choice, based on the currency and location they are situated in at the time of booking, offering more freedom and a contemporary, personalised service.”

Gordon Oldham, Founder & Owner, The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts, added on the newly formed expansion: “Personalised experiences are at the core of our DNA, allowing this flexibility in payments combined with security and peace of mind for our guests is the next step in personalised and bespoke services. We are proud to lead the industry and enhance ourselves in the digital world with this exciting new crypto payment method available at all of our unique and distinct Hotels and Resorts across the globe.” 

The Pavilions Residences, which are available for sale at the groups Phuket and Niseko resorts, will also accept Cryptocurrencies for the sales of properties.
