HOSTMAKER launches Bangkok branch as part of global expansion

This marks the homestay hospitality company’s first move into Asia

HOSTMAKER, the leading home rental management company in Europe, has today announced its launch into the Asian market, expanding into Bangkok, the world’s most visited city.

The expansion follows a $15 million funding round last year led by Sansiri, Thailand’s leading premium real estate developer. The Bangkok office is the sixth for the London-based company, which offers consistent, high-quality hospitality services in nine cities.

The company hopes to help Bangkok’s 22 million annual visitors as well as its growing global population by bringing a new rental model to the Thai market, following success in Europe. Currently open to host applications, HOSTMAKER is looking at building its portfolio of homes from property investors, landlords and more casual hosts looking at renting their place while going on holiday.

HOSTMAKER was founded in 2014 by Airbnb ‘Superhost’ and entrepreneur Nakul Sharma, who wanted to take the hassle out of managing rentals for homeowners. Alongside housekeeping teams, trained at five-star hotels, professional photography, daily pricing reviews and guest relations, the start-up also facilitates property listing and marketing across platforms including Airbnb, Booking.com, TripAdvisor and many more.

The announcement follows the firm’s recent launch in Portuguese capital, Lisbon, in November 2017. The expansion is part of HOSTMAKER’s plan to more than double their markets in 2018, while maintaining leadership in existing markets.

The Bangkok operation will be headed up by General Manager Bo Chang, who previously acted as COO of Dealcha – a cashback e-commerce enabler and co-founder of Galleon. He also recently acted as a finance mergers and acquisitions professional, focused on transactions in Africa and Southeast Asia.  

HOSTMAKER has so far carried out over 150,000 services across Europe, growing at a rate of 400 per cent year-on-year. It currently operates in London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona and Lisbon – five of the largest global markets for Airbnb – as well as Cannes, Florence and Madrid.

On the expansion, Nakul Sharma, HOSTMAKER’s founder and CEO, said:

“This is a very exciting time for the company. With the recent launch in Lisbon and now Bangkok, we are growing rapidly to offer our end-to-end home rentals management services all over the world. We look forward to welcoming new members to HOSTMAKER and working in the world’s most visited city, in stunning Bangkok”.

Bo Chang, General Manager of HOSTMAKER Bangkok, said:

“The expansion to Bangkok is yet another exciting chapter for the company, and I’m excited to head up the team in our Bangkok office. Bangkok offers a huge array of hot spots and hidden gems that attract tourists from all over the world. We can’t wait to work with our new hosts and offer an amazing experience to our guests.”
