How does Bukit Vista work?
We are hospitality entrepreneurs inventing new ways to delight our guests
Our mission is to inspire delight through hospitality innovations that positively transform our guests, employees & partners.
Hospitality Management as a Service
Bukit Vista is a team of fun-loving professional hosts who love to work hard and play harder. We are the ambassadors to our neighborhoods. We manage over 170+ unique properties, 12 Airbnb accounts and accumulated over 20,000 combined reviews. We've hosted over 40,000 Airbnb guests as of Aug 2019.
Meet Bukit Vista, a property management startup, based in sunny, tropical Bali with a vision to change the future of the hospitality industry. We’re proud to announce an innovative solution that will simplify the lives of property owners & enhance the careers of hospitality workers worldwide. We believe that this application will find massive adoption in the post CoVID 19 world as the hospitality industry rises to a new future.
Many owners of short-term properties will face a difficult choice when reopening their properties. How will I afford to pay for workers when I’m not even certain of my own income stream? Furthermore, if you’ve put managers & experienced talent on furlough, how will you as an owner be able to recover that expertise again quickly? And even then, will old skillsets still be useful in the new climate of travel, post COVID-19?
Bukit Vista has a simple solution that can help property owners get back on their feet faster & cheaper than any other solution currently available. We offer Hospitality Management as a Service. You pay nothing when you make nothing, and you can minimize your labor budget with tangible improvements in management or service quality. How?
For 7 years, Bukit Vista has been operating on a subscription model with forward thinking property owners on the very competitive accommodation market of Bali. We’ve made millions in revenue for our over 180+ partnerships with hotels, villas, guesthouses and holiday home owners. We train staff & develop hotel quality service levels - for free. Our data science team optimizes revenue through data-driven pricing updated daily - free. Our extraordinary team of content artisans will craft & reiterate the online presence of our properties for maximum exposure. Our community managers guide strategy so that our properties remain as the most desirable & competitive in the marketplace. A team of savvy accountants keep track of your revenues & earnings, and work to keep your income stream strong. All our services are free of fixed cost. Our team works for you and we take only a commission from the total inbound bookings. Big hotel performance without big hotel overhead. Pay for performance, a fair deal.
Today, the innovative Bukit Vista tools team is releasing an app that brings together all the services at Bukit Vista in a fun, easy to use form. The app serves to give owners a clear view of their finances & the quality of service of their workforce. Zooming in, an owner can track the every payment they’ve received and up to the last guest review for the housekeeper. They can zoom out and monitor overall month-on-month revenue performance and the performance index of their cleaning teams. An AI-enabled technology creates revenue forecast. Complexity is simplified.
This revolutionary technology had additional benefits for the massive hospitality labor force looking for work at the moment. One of the primary frictions in the industry has been the enormous resources needed to find quality candidates. What if that could be done in zero time and at zero cost? What if you could skip the lengthy HR process of hiring, training & onboarding new candidates - but simply hire for services rendered? Like an Uber for front-office workers, chefs, butlers, housekeepers, marketing team, sales team, etc.
The Bukit Vista app will enable owners & hospitality managers find & recruit talent with the push of a button. The recruitment technology works seamlessly with our app, allowing effortless coordination & communication between guests & service providers. At the finale of the experience, the guest leaves a review on an OTA, and the review is attributed to the employees involved in the guest experience. Finally simplifying the very difficult task of delivering feedback to the right person. Automagically & instantaneously. Reward & incentive the right employees based on data. With such a feedback record, it become simple & effortless to hire the right candidates for your hospitality mission.
We can’t wait to get this exciting news out to the world. The innovative model we present today will be the catalyst to bring the hospitality industry back on its feet again.
