HSMA members’ personnel now fully-vaccinated


    From Luzon to Visayas to Mindanao, member hotels and resorts of the Hotel Sales and Marketing Association (HSMA) Philippines are confidently opening their doors to guests with what can be called an added safety armor: their over 15,000 fully vaccinated personnel.

    The announcement comes at the heels of the second run of HSMA’s September Online Sale (SOS), which, like last year, offers discounted packages sold in the form of e-vouchers that can be used in a span of a year from the date of purchase, and may be extended upon request. The sale, done in partnership with the Department of Tourism (DoT), Tourism Promotions Board, Atlantis, iSentia, and Cebu Pacific Air, is ongoing until October. 15 at www.hsma.org.ph/sos.

    Eighty hotels and resorts across the country are part of this year’s SOS, with deals and discounts reaching as much as 70 percent off.

    “From a 15-day event, we’ve laid out a month-long travel mart. We are also including the ancillary  services of the properties such as restaurants, bars, banquet packages, spa, gym and pool, and other facilities of the hotel, making this year’s campaign more thrilling and inviting,” says Benjie Martinez, HSMA president and area director of Sales and Marketing for Bayleaf Hotels.
