How ‘daycation’ packages can boost revenue for Thai hotels


Hotels in Thailand could boost occupancy rates and generate ancillary revenue by offering ‘daycation’ packages to locals and expats.




While hotels in Thailand start to cautiously reopen as the measures put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are eased, there has never been more uncertainty regarding the future of the tourism and hospitality industries.


During this unprecedented and challenging time, hotels and resorts need to explore every avenue possible in order to maximise income.


But that is easier said than done, especially when it could be a year or more before international tourism returns to Thailand at the levels of pre-COVID-19.


So what can hotels and resorts in Thailand do to boost income in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic?


The answer could be a lot closer to home than many hoteliers realise. 


By targeting Thai locals and foreign expats with ‘daycation’ packages or promotions, hotels and resorts in Thailand could easily boost both occupancy and revenue.


A 'daycation' package could be offered in a number of different ways but the main premise enables hotels to maximise use of empty rooms and other underutilized facilities such as swimming pools, spas, fitness centres, restaurants and bars.


Hiring out a room to a ‘daycationer’ gives hoteliers the chance to maximise occupancy of rooms that would otherwise be vacant.


Furthermore, it also offers the chance to generate revenue in other areas of the business, particularly around F&B and facilities such as pools, spas or even kids clubs. 


Offering 'daycation' packages to locals and expats further helps to build loyalty among a customer base that is available year round and not just for a high season.
