Budget hotels aggregator Vista Rooms today said it has entered into alternative stay segment with over 100 villas in India and Sri Lanka as part of its expansion plans. This move will enable real estate builders making homes as well as home owners to create value out of their dormant assets, Vista Rooms said in a statement. Vista Rooms Co-Founder Ankita Sheth said: "At Vista Rooms, our aim is to tap unused properties and transform them into well-serviced homes that deliver a hotel-like experience in the comfort and privacy of a home". While travelling in big groups, families often have to undergo problems in locating reliable, trustworthy and value for money accommodations that are suited for a private get together, she added. "In order to help such travellers make the most of their journeys, Vista Rooms has tied up with homeowners and real estate builders in several parts of South Asia," Sheth said. The alternative stays market is growing and Vista Rooms is bringing hotel-level standards to this segment, she added. In the first phase, the company has tied up with 60 villas and apartments in Maharashtra at popular destinations such as Lonavala, Alibaug, Karjat and Mahabaleshwar, Vista Rooms said. "The focus is on strengthening its foothold in Maharashtra along with expanding its network in tourist spots such as Goa, Coorg, Shimla and Manali," it added. The company envisions establishing a bigger and stronger network and coming up with 200 properties across all key weekend getaway spots near tier 1 cities in the next one year, Vista Rooms said.
