According to a Business Traveler report published on August 15, Soneva, a leader in the high-end hotel industry, now accepts Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) at its properties in the Maldives and Thailand.

Visitors at Soneva Fushi, Soneva Jani, and Soneva in Aqua in the Maldives, along with Soneva Kiri in Thailand, can now boldly make safe international payments using the payment channel, which is designed to standardize the transaction procedure and offer the ultimate peace of mind.

Furthermore, Soneva Villa Ownership is the Maldives' first and only plan to provide real estate to foreign buyers. Bitcoin and Ethereum may be used for this with the required safeguards and compliance.

Bruce Bromley, chief financial officer and deputy CEO, stated:

"At Soneva, we have always strived to be a pioneer in the hospitality industry, and accepting cryptocurrencies as a form of payment is another example of enabling our international guests to make payments from anywhere in the world easily," 

Increasing the accessibility of luxury travel

Soneva, TripleA, a cryptocurrency payments solution provider, and Pomelo Pay, a payment platform provider, are working together to make luxury travel more accessible by accepting a more comprehensive range of payment methods.

Visitors can pay in cryptocurrencies without fear of price fluctuations thanks to TripleA, a licensed provider of cryptocurrency payment solutions. This is possible due to TripleA's quick confirmation, fixed exchange rates, real-time conversions, and lack of chargebacks.

When used in conjunction with Pomelo Pay, a frictionless payment platform, it enables users to make cryptocurrency purchases via QR codes and payment links.

Contact the reservations team directly from anywhere in the world to make reservations and set up secure payment channels.

Although Bitcoin and Ethereum payments are non-refundable, cancellation fees may be reimbursed in full compliance with the accommodating payment and cancellation policy, which was implemented in the aftermath of the Covid-19 outbreak to provide visitors with greater peace of mind when making reservations.
