Expedia Inc. is an Online Travel Agent, initially launched in 1996 as the first Microsoft internet property, at a time when the notion of booking via an OTA had nothing of the public support that they do nowadays. Expedia today is one of the largest OTAs and manages many additional brands such as Hotels.com and trivago as well as the flagship brand, Expedia.com. As an efficient intermediary, Expedia Inc. promotes travel bookings for over 10’000 partners that operate in many different sectors such as airlines, consumer brands and accommodation.


 

The powerful combination of Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel into FRHI in 2006 spelt a change for the future of hospitality, harnessing the extensive and individual skill set of each brand to progress together as one driven body, while succeeding to preserve the illustrious identities of most properties – much to the joy of their loyal customers.


 

Shangri-La takes its namesake from the glorious land of paradise featured in James Hilton’s 1933 novel, Lost Horizon. This distinct origin is understood to be a cornerstone to the environment integrated within the hotels and resorts: serenity and service. The group is based in Hong-Kong and it is Asia Pacific’s leading luxury hotel group.
