NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VOILA Hotel Rewards (www.voilahotels.com) today announced the expansion of its network with the addition of Xenia Villas (www.xeniavillas.gr) in Greece. This recent addition is another step in the company's focused strategy to increase VOILA Hotel Rewards presence worldwide.
The Greek word "Xenia" translates to "hospitality shown to strangers" and that's precisely what guests enjoy while staying at the privately owned chain of luxurious villas with private swimming pools. Starting now, VOILA members can earn points and exchange them for stays at any of 16 Xenia Villas worldwide in Greece.
Xenia Villas are known for their warm and welcoming upscale atmosphere. Since most properties only accommodate between 4 and 30 guests, they offer the unique opportunity to spend an intimate holiday surrounded by family or close friends. Located in or surrounding Marathon, Lefkada and Corfu, they offer magnificent views of acres of rugged coastlines, crystal clear turquoise seas, and the historic grandeur of ancient ruins. Among the many on-site amenities and services are private swimming pools, in-room fireplaces, lush gardens, dining rooms, living rooms, expansive balconies, and live-in butler service. Guests can also take advantage of a wide range of activities and attractions nearby, including sailing, guided historic tours, and boat excursions.
"We are proud Xenia Villas provides guests with a one-of-a-kind travel experience," said George Papadopoulos – Owner of Xenia Villas. "VOILA and Xenia Villas share a common desire to deliver greater travel choices to guests, and through this partnership the Xenia Villas brand will be introduced to VOILA's global audience. We are very optimistic that participation in the global VOILA network will be very beneficial to each of our properties."
Xenia Villas joins VOILA's expanding network of more than 250 independent properties around the globe, which include beach resorts, ski chalets, and chic downtown hotels.
"We know people join VOILA to discover hotels and travel to places beyond the ordinary and expected," said Peter Gorla, VOILA Hotel Rewards vice president and chief marketing officer. "Xenia Villas in Greece was a logical addition because their approach to hospitality and premier settings deliver a truly unparalleled travel experience to members. We are extremely pleased to welcome them to VOILA."
VOILA Hotel Rewards is the world's leading reward program for independent hotels and hotel groups. Joining VOILA is free and members can earn points for stays at network hotels and redeem them for a variety of rewards including hotel nights, music downloads, charitable donations, airline miles, and more.

VOILA's points-based frequency guest program provides recognition benefits and room redemption opportunities at participating network hotels. But unlike big chain programs, VOILA enables independent hotel groups to stay independent and maintain their unique qualities.
VOILA provides hotel- or group-branded solutions for our partner hotels, with VOILA acting as the supporting brand (similar to Star Alliance or OneWorld for FFP's). This allows members to earn and redeem points across a wide variety of hotels and redemption partners in the VOILA global network.
From the consumer's perspective, this means members can enjoy the rich experiences and extraordinary qualities independent hotels offer while earning points and receiving benefits typically tied to big chain loyalty programs. For more information, please visit:
