AsiaRooms.com is on the Hunt for Singapore’s Next Social Travel Star

SINGAPORE, 26 March 2012 – Do you find yourself inspecting details of the hotel room as soon as you check in? Size of the bed, plushness of the pillows, brand of the toiletries, even contents of the mini-bar?  You are not alone.  One out of three Singaporeans surveyed* believes that the hotel room can make or break the trip.   The truth is all of us have different expectations of the hotel room.  Not one size fits all. One man’s sweet dreams can be another’s sleepless night.

AsiaRooms.com understands that the right room can make the trip more meaningful, memorable and enjoyable. The leading accommodation site is launching a casting call to find Singapore’s next social travel stars – a pair of travel hosts – who will travel and review twelve unique hotels across four countries.

“With our new campaign, AsiaRooms.com is focused on placing the customer at the centre of what we do by adding value to their travels. We understand that our customers place huge importance on the hotel room, and to that end we’re facilitating the sharing of authentic, un-doctored hotel reviews from like-minded travellers so that everyone makes an informed decision on their potential destinations and hotels,” said Andrew Pumphrey, Managing Director, AsiaRooms.com.

“Today’s online travel industry has become heavily commoditised. For many people, the travel booking experience has become simply a process of searching through different sites for the best deals. We pride ourselves on providing authentic reviews from real travellers who’ve stayed in the hotel they’re reviewing.  These reviews help travellers see the hotel from different points of view in an aggregated fashion, so they get to see the good and bad of the hotels all in a flash,” added Pumphrey.

Winners of the competition will debut on AsiaRooms.com’s brand new YouTube channel with their very own series of room review videos. They also get to win up to $10,000 worth of cash and prizes.

To enter the competition in the ‘Search for Singapore’s Next Social Travel Star’, participants must pair up to create and submit a video no longer than three minutes of their very own room review. The video needs to demonstrate their passion for travelling and eye for details that make a holiday and hotel room stay fun and memorable. Naturally, like avid social media users, contestants need to show confidence in front of the camera and a desire to spread the word.

Deadline for the submission of videos is on 11 April 2012. The top five submissions will be shortlisted after the first round. Following which, the public will then be able to vote via Facebook for their favourite video. Winners of this competition will be announced on 24 April 2012. To be eligible, participants must be at least 18 years old, and possess a passport for travel with minimum 6 months validity.
