Casai was designed for the nomadic generation; merging the design and comforts of a boutique hotel with the technology of a San Francisco home and the local ambiance of a vacation rental.
Casai inventory is now available on Katanox, giving travel sellers a short time to market with Casai’s fast-growing inventory. Katanox enables travel sellers to plug in directly to Casai’s inventory via an API so they can pull real-time availability, make bookings, access live availability and sell extra services.
Katanox, the transparent B2B marketplace for travel accommodations and travel sellers, announced its partnership with Casai, a Latin American hospitality startup founded in Mexico that aspires to lead the next revolution in the Latam tourism industry by offering stays with the comforts of home, equipped with sophisticated design, fast WiFi and personalized service, generating unique experiences designed for contemporary and local living.
Through this partnership, any travel seller that signs up with Katanox can start making direct deals with Casai properties through the Katanox marketplace and offer the inventory through a single API that is fully integrated with Casai’s source of truth; the PMS (property management system). Katanox's direct integration with Casai distributes property’s room, availability, rates and content; including pictures, descriptions, policies, amenities, etc., to facilitate trading and booking conversion between any seller and Casai.
Katanox is a true connectivity alternative for travel sellers to retrieve inventory from accommodation partners with no other intermediary such as a GDS, OTA affiliate program, bedbank, switch, or channel manager, facilitating private deal-making with inventory onboarded on the Katanox marketplace.
“Our partnership with Casai reiterates the need within the industry for travel sellers to effortlessly negotiate exclusive deals and access travelers’ information while allowing accommodation partners like Casai to gain control of their channel mix”, Mendel Senf, CEO and co-founder of Katanox.
Casai, with more than 800 units in Mexico and Brazil, aims to be a new solution for the hospitality market and lead the next revolution of the sector in Latin America. Through Katanox integration, Casai’s units open up to a new generation of travel sellers to reach new audiences directly and also stay in control of the terms of the deals.
"The needs of the traveler of yesteryear are certainly different from those of today. It is precisely the change brought about by the pandemic that has allowed us to transform and embrace new models of accommodation. The addition of our portfolio of units to Katanox is part of the transformation. We brought together the best of both offerings, professionalized it and transformed it into an experience focused on today's travelers", Nico Barawid, CEO and co-founder of Casai.
