Had a windfall with Bitcoin lately? Is your Ethereum on the up? We can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with luxury travel – which is fitting, because The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts has become the first international boutique hotel group in the world to accept cryptocurrencies for hotel bookings.
Partnering with UK-based global crypto-payment gateway, Coindirect, all of The Pavilions’ hotels and resorts – including the newly opened The Pavilions Anana Krabi in Thailand, and The Pavilions El Nido, Palawan Island in the Philippines – can now be booked securely with your digital assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and 40 other virtual currencies, from any country.
Wondering where to spend your assets? The boutique hoteliers’ portfolio includes 14 luxury resorts and hotels in stunning locations, including Phuket, Bali, Himalayas, Mongolia and Niseko in Asia, and Amsterdam, Madrid, Lisbon and Rome in Europe.
Unique to the luxury hotel group are its ‘Curated Journeys’, a series of innovative travel itineraries, created with expert local guides, which are designed to immerse you in the essence of your chosen destination. These feature specialised offerings at the Pavilions Spa, which delivers locally inspired treatments with locally sourced products to ensure authenticity; and authentic, local dining experiences within the resorts, too.
