• New partnership combines Ministry of Villas’ quality properties, personalized service underpinned by Tourism Holdings technology to cater to rapidly growing Asia demand. • Ministry of Villas partners with Tourism Holdings to adapt cutting-edge channel management software from the hotel sector to villas in Asia. • Global demand is shifting from hotels to private accommodation, but first generation villa websites are riddled with outdated calendars, unreliable prices and inferior technology.

Singapore, May 11, 2016, Singapore-headquartered Ministry of Villas, one of Asia’s leading villa specialists and holiday curators, today announced a global partnership with Tourism Holdings, Australia’s leading premier travel booking technology provider. Partnership entails immediate implementation of expansion strategy across Asia in tourism hotspots including Bali, Thailand and Japan.

Tourism Holdings bespoke booking technology ResOnline, in conjunction with their Bookeasy destination management system, is transforming the travel sector with Ministry of Villas by offering smaller, private accommodation owners around the world the same technology capabilities utilized by leading global hotel brands.

Previous inefficient methods of manual calendar updates and email interactions with property owners are redundant due to the ResOnline functionality updating every minute ensuring 100% accuracy on availability and real-time rates.

Co-Founder and CEO of Ministry of Villas Alastair Loxton stated: “We have been working in unison with Tourism Holdings’ team to support and empower the rapidly growing private accommodation travel booking market and help lead the way in the global macro-trend of travelers shifting from hotels to villas. We are delighted to be joined with Bryan and Tourism Holdings in an official capacity as global partner bringing their product outside of Australia and New Zealand to cater for the rapidly increasing demand of Asia outbound and domestic travel, particularly key markets such as China and India.”

Founder and CEO of Tourism Holdings, Bryan Frawley said: “Our ResOnline platform updates 1,000’s of channels and Online Travel Agents (OTA’s) globally every minute, and was a game-changer for hotels when we built it over 15 years ago. Now it is equally revolutionizing how villa owners and property managers can market their properties. Partnering with leading providers for private accommodation holidays such as Ministry of Villas enables us to rapidly expand our business to Asia and beyond in the new world order of the sharing economy, which previously haven’t had access to these sophisticated and intricate tools like the huge global hotel chains have.”

Ministry of Villas has only the highest quality stunning villa properties available each being personally inspected to rigid standards, with key tourist hotspots such as Bali, Thailand and Japan as the core markets for their delivery of impeccable service and next-level villa holiday experiences. Tourism Holdings offers leading channel management software ResOnline, as well as supporting products for continued integration of technology into the travel sector such as Bookeasy, Australia’s leading destination management system, currently being used by over 170 businesses and connecting over 45,000 operators.
