Pure Commerce Provides Greater Payment Options to Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa’s International Guests

“As a world-class, customer focused resort we always look for new ways to offer added benefits to our guests' stay,” said Joost Heymeijer, general manager, Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa.  “We see a strong benefit in providing our guests with more choice and the simplicity of paying in their home currency, reducing all the confusion and easing the process of check-out.”

fxCHOICE offers DCC on up to 135 currencies, enhancing the experience Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa provides to international guests by offering greater convenience and a more personalised service.

“The tourism industry in Australia is increasingly aware of the value that can be added by innovative electronic payment solutions,” said David Lavecky, business development director – APAC at Pure Commerce.  "With most international visitors paying with credit or debit cards, fxCHOICE greatly improves their experience by offering them choice of payment currency and simplifying the checkout process.”

The service is delivered in alliance with local acquirer Tyro Payments.

About Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa

Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa opened in October 2009. Located within its own 4,000 acre conservation reserve and nestled between two national parks bordering the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the conservation-based Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa sets new standards in luxury travel. Combining the expectations of the high-end traveller with the broader social, ecological and environmental aspects of the resort, it will be the only experience of its kind in Australia.

As Emirates Hotels & Resorts’ first hospitality development outside Dubai, the AU$125 million project was built on the same principles as Emirates’ acclaimed Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa, fully integrated into its environment and supporting wide-ranging conservation practices. These will focus on endangered species protection and the planting of thousands of native trees indigenous to the area, including one of the world's rarest trees, the Wollemi Pine.

About Emirates Hotels & Resorts

Emirates Hotels & Resorts is Emirates Airline’s premier hospitality management division comprising a growing portfolio of award-winning luxury conservation-based resorts, five-star hotels and lifestyle Spas.  For over 10 years, Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa has showcased the success of Emirates Hotels & Resorts’ conservation-based philosophy. The same philosophy is followed at the other two Emirates Hotels & Resorts conservation-based properties; the Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa in Australia’s Blue Mountains, which opened in October, and at the Cap Ternay Resort & Spa in the Seychelles, which is now under planning.  

The Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and the Wolgan Valley Wildlife Conservancy, where Al Maha and Wolgan Valley are respectively located, are sponsored by Emirates and under the management of Emirates Hotels & Resorts.
