Kamala Bay Terrace Resort’s Online Contracting
System Shows Encouraging Results

May 2004 - Kamala Bay Terrace Resort in Phuket, Thailand has implemented Pelican system to offer online contracting to travel agents and corporate clients. Pelican’s online contracting features allows the resort to manage confidential rate distribution to travel agents and corporate clients as well as enabling the resort to offer sizable allotments to agents of all sizes without surrendering control over room rates. 

The new system allows travel agents to obtain instant confirmation of every booking made through the Kamala Bay Terrace Resort web site. The resort is able to maximize yield by managing room inventory based on rate category.  Room allotments can be shared among client groups, giving equal opportunity for all travel agents and corporate clients regardless of size. 

Though recently installed, the system is already showing positive results. “One new agent we approved for online contracting has become a top ten producer after only a few months. ” Said Jork Bosselaar General Manager of the resort. 

Now the resort is welcoming travel agents and   corporate clients worldwide — large or small -- to experience for themselves the benefits of online contracting facilities. Those interested may register their application through, or visit the resort’s web site at and click “new agent registration” link.  The resort reserves the right to determine applicant eligibility.

About Kamala Bay Terrace Resort.

Kamala Bay Terrace Resort sits on the shores of Phuket's most beautiful bay, Kamala Bay.

There is extraordinary peace here. The surrounding hills seem to protect us from the outside world. The deluxe rooms and suites nestle in the gentle rise between the shore and the hillside.

The Andaman Sea presents a wonderful collection of colours, from clear turquoise to deeper, mysterious hues of blue. All rooms have views of the sea and spacious balconies.

About Pelican System

Pelican is an Internet-based reservation system designed to manage all types of bookings, whether made directly by guests or through travel agents and corporate clients.

For Internet users (direct guests) Pelican will provide instant confirmation of reservations made through the hotel web site, and will notify the hotel’s reservation department though automatically generated e-mail messages. 

For travel agents and corporate clients Pelican offers a feature called “Online Contracting,” which eliminates the need for paper-based, fixed-term contracts, allowing the hotel to set and adjust rates and allotments instantly according to seasonal period, special events, or unexpected demand. 

Pelican system provides a secure link to agents and clients, allowing hotels to distribute confidential trade rates to pre-authorized recipients, and to share allotments among many agents and clients on a “first-come-first-served” basis. Each agent or client accesses the system directly from the hotel’s own web site with a unique login/password combination, allowing the hotel to assign each user to a specific group, and to determine the information and privileges each group will receive. 

With Pelican system, the hotel has complete control at all times, and can easily monitor activity through instantly generated summaries and full reports.
