AKAMAS VILLAS LAUNCHES THE FIRST SOCIAL MEDIA VILLA HOLIDAY
Luxury Cyprus villa firm launches fully-integrated holiday iPad app
Luxury Cyprus holiday-rental firm Akamas Villas (www.akamas-villas.com) has launched an iPad app, which is set to shift the traditional villa vacation experience, into more of a social media holiday.
Taking a fully-integrated approach, potential guests can firstly book one of Akamas
Villas' 42 luxury properties, in the Akamas Region of Cyprus, via the app, with its user-friendly interface and full villa descriptions. However, the app then goes on working into the duration of a guest's stay. It can be used to liaise with local partners and on-site villa service providers, discover a range of invaluable destination information, and gain hefty discounts with local establishments and attractions, ranging from exquisite restaurants, to luxury Spas and water sports.
"The app was very much designed with our company ethos in mind; that it is of paramount importance to fully enhance guest experience, post the initial booking stage. We also understand the iPad is now an essential piece of tech, for the savvy modern traveller. From our experience, in this modern age, the lines between work and play get blurred, and guests will still be catching up with friends, or on the odd email whilst on holiday. Therefore, we wanted to be the first villa company in Cyprus and beyond, to offer a totally user-friendly iPad app, which gave guests benefits they could enjoy during their stay, at no extra cost," says Martin Maynard, Founder of Akamas Villas.
"We launched this app - a first of its kind - which takes care of every aspect of the holiday, from the initial enquiry stage, to gourmet in-villa dining menus, and local region guides to use whilst in Cyprus - to ensure each stay is thoroughly enjoyable," says Maynard.
Running up to the holiday the iPad app offers a villa booking guide, high res villa images, details of property features, locations and airport info, and links to live availability and pricing on a full screen calendar, plus the ability to share properties via email, Facebook & Twitter. On arrival, the app also offers guests a list of services, partner discounts, local map views, touristic information and local bar and restaurant menus.
