The online platform allows users to book hotel experiences by the day
The DayAway platform provides hotel partners with the technology and marketing tools to diversify revenue, while simultaneously engaging a new community of guests searching for enjoyable ways to spend their time and money.
Aimed at those seeking daytime escapes, DayAway is an international brand now available to travellers and residents in the UAE.
The platform promotes and shares a variety of experiences offered by hotels, spanning wellness, dining and adventure.
With seven luxury hotel partners currently on board in the UAE, DayAway’s offerings include a Precious Pearl Experience at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, a Bedouin Desert Adventure at Telal Resort Al Ain and the Ultimate Island Daycation at InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah, which includes a 90-minute Spa treatment.
Founded by CEO Martha Waslen, DayAway launched in Singapore in 2021 with hotel partners including Raffles Hotel Singapore before expanding to Hong Kong, Thailand and Australia.
Commenting on the news, Waslen said: “We're delighted to have expanded into the UAE, a dynamic destination that has a reputation for providing a diverse range of luxury experiences. Our mission at DayAway is to elevate the everyday, and we’re defining a new era of luxury experiences that we hope will provide our community with opportunities to experience their favourite hotels in exciting and meaningful ways.
“Luxury hotels have a unique opportunity to connect with the growing experience economy by repurposing their underutilised assets as curated daytime escapes for both local guests and international travellers."
