About Nau Royal Boutique Hotel and Spa

The hotel boasts of luxurious oceanfront facilities and a petit-spa by L’Occitane.

Nau Royal is the perfect getaway for couples looking to spend some uninterrupted romantic time together, or a small group of friends.

Scenario and Challenges

The property has been hosting guests since 2011 in its 13 rooms ranging across 7 categories. The boutique hotel ran its operations, initially, through a system they had built in-house. Their PMS could handle bits and pieces of their activities but was not efficient.

Soon, they began witnessing the challenges that came with the arrangement they had. They also began to realize the need to implement a system that was more competent than what they already had.

Their in-house PMS proved to be a huge challenge for them on multiple fronts, such as

  • It didn’t allow integration with a Channel Manager
  • This compromised their online distribution of inventory
  • Overbooking was turning out to be a pressing problem
  • They couldn’t integrate their POS outlets to the PMS
  • The system didn’t allow them to perform Night Audits
  • They weren’t getting direct bookings
