NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- VOILA Hotel Rewards (www.voilahotels.com), the world's number one independent hotel loyalty program, recently welcomed two new properties in Central America, the Red Frog Beach Resort in Bocas del Toro, Panama, and Indura Beach & Golf Resort in Tela Beach, Honduras, to its worldwide network through a partnership with hotel management company Trust Hospitality (www.trusthospitality.com).
"VOILA is celebrating our most recent partnership by welcoming two new hotel members from Trust Hospitality which manages a variety of amazing luxury properties from around the world," said Peter Gorla, managing director of VOILA Hotel Rewards. "These properties give guests the opportunity to discover a unique combination of adventure and relaxation during their travels throughout Central America."
The Red Frog Beach Resort (http://www.redfrogbeach.com/) is ideally located on an island in Bocas del Toro in Panama's stunning Caribbean. This ecotourist destination is centered around its namesake, Red Frog Beach, a protected marina where guests can enjoy water taxis to nearby islands, or spend time enjoying snorkeling, surfing, sea fishing or simply relaxing in a hammock on the beach. The resort's private luxury villas feature stylish interiors with airy living spaces where guests can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding beach and unspoiled rainforest. To complete the island villa experience, villas also include private plunge pools, fully equipped kitchens, Wi-Fi Internet access, patio grills and air conditioning.
The other property added to the network is the Indura Beach & Golf Resort (http://www.induraresort.com/) located on the tropical northern coast of Tela Bay. The resort offers a variety of eco-adventures including whitewater rafting, zip lining, hiking, kayaking or snorkeling. It is also home to the first championship 18-hole golf course in Honduras set on 1,800 tropical acres with stunning views of golden beaches and blue lagoons. The resort's 60 junior suites are scattered across the properties' 15 villas and are complete with terraces, Wi-Fi and air conditioning to provide a welcoming, home-away-from-home experience. Guests also have access to the Maina Spa, where they can enjoy a range of spa treatments amidst the resort's serene water gardens.
"Our partnership with VOILA gives our Central American properties more exposure than ever before," said Andre Niederhauser, VP of Operations Central America, of Trust Hospitality. "Opening up our resorts to VOILA members gives them the opportunity to come and explore all the natural beauty Central America has to offer. We are looking forward to adding more of our hotels from North America, South America, the Caribbean or Europe to the VOILA worldwide network in the very near future."
Both properties offer VOILA members the opportunity to explore the world-renowned beaches of Central America, paired with numerous opportunities for rainforest adventures or seaside relaxation.
Guests of either the Red Frog Beach Resort in Panama or the Indura Beach & Golf Resort in Honduras who are currently VOILA members can start earning points for their stays immediately. Points can be redeemed for a number of rewards including Award Nights at participating hotels, airline miles, charitable donations or shopping at a variety of global retailers and entertainment brands.
"We are thrilled to be adding two more great options for members in Central America, a destination known for its sunny weather and warm hospitality," said Peter Gorla, managing director of VOILA Hotel Rewards. "The Red Frog Beach Resort and the Indura Beach & Golf Resort provide luxury accommodations and quality service. We are proud to have them join our worldwide reward network and look forward to additional partnerships with Trust Hospitality."
