With the rise of remote working and post-Covid changes in consumer travel patterns, Banyan Tree Group has announced the launch of Habitat – offering a new way of living, working and travelling in one. Habitat enables guests to enjoy long-term stays at properties in more than 30 destinations around the globe under Banyan Tree Group’s house of brands: Banyan Tree, Angsana and Cassia.
With greater flexibility and the possibility of experiencing multiple destinations with a single pass, Habitat inspires a different travel journey, meeting consumers’ evolving travel needs in the new normal. It caters to seasonal travellers in search of picturesque destinations, families yearning for a long-overdue vacation, or combining it all – remote workers keen to experience the freedom of working and exploring the world at the same time.
With a Habitat Pass, guests can book their stays in ‘units’ of seven nights, with the choice to hop from one property to another within the same brands in different locations. In addition, savings increase up to 60% with each additional unit purchased, where each unit can be redeemed at a different property during the period of their stay.
Each pass is valid for 12 months and guests may book up to four units per brand, ranging from 7-28 nights’ stay, with the flexibility to redeem each unit at a different time. As part of the Habitat offering, travellers are given credits of up to USD 700 based on the number of units purchased, which can be used across multiple inclusions, such as F&B, spa, wellness activities, and airport transfers.
With domestic tourism fuelling a significant recovery, domestic travellers have the opportunity to discover hidden cultural gems within their country, with a choice of nine Banyan Tree Hotels in China and four in Thailand. When international travel re-opens, guests may travel to properties across China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Mexico, Morocco, Thailand and Vietnam.
Rosalynn Tay, senior vice president of commercial at Banyan Tree Group said: “We recognise that travelling needs have changed; Habitat provides our guests with the flexibility across our different brands, stay periods and amenities.”
