Utell Hotels & Resorts, a service of Pegasus Solutions Inc., announced it has signed two properties from Chilean Resort & Casino company, Enjoy, to its representation and marketing services.

The two five-star properties, Hotel del Mar in Viña del Mar and Hotel del Lago in Pucon, are among a total of five (including three planned) under the Enjoy brand that will benefit from Utell's electronic distribution and international marketing efforts. Given the growth of travel to Latin America, the need to more strategically reach customers has grown for properties such as Enjoy's, according to Piro Hernandez, regional director of Latin America for Utell.

"Enjoy Resort & Casinos currently has no electronic distribution or any sales and marketing representation for these two properties,” said Hernandez. "The team at Utell Hotels & Resorts looks forward to bringing value to Enjoy and working with them to increase their market share through Utell's distribution, sales and marketing network. With Utell's recent success in the Latin America region, we are confident we can bring Enjoy excellent results.”

Utell has 181 hotels in Latin America and the revenue for these properties has increased 25 percent over the last year. With this revenue growth potential, Utell is ideal for handling the needs of properties emerging on the global tourism scene, according to Eduardo Garcia Fanta, sales manager for Enjoy.

"Enjoy is a leader in the Chilean market for leisure entertainment, but with world-class properties like the Hotel del Mar and Hotel del Lago, we need to establish our brand as a leader beyond our borders,” said Garcia Fanta. "The international influence and recognition of the Utell brand made it the ideal solution for getting Enjoy noticed on the world stage.”

Utell Hotels & Resorts currently represents more than 700,000 rooms worldwide and provides hotels access to four major GDSs and more than 1,000 Web sites around the world.
