Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts has signed a distribution deal with Destinations of the World. The hotel chain’s rates and inventory will now be available to travel agents through the wholesaler, which plans to increase to more than 450,000 points of sales by 2011’s Q2. “DOTW have been selling Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts since their first hotel opening, and over the years have commonly experienced our customer demand outstripping our directly contracted supply. This development will certainly enhance our availability for Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts on all categories of rooms, increase the sales and more importantly better meet the needs of our Customers’ said Keith Fernandez, group managing director of Destinations of the World. The agreement will also include Jumeirah’s eight new openings this year.
