AsiaHotels.com has been providing bookings to a wide range of accommodations in the region since 1997, attracting millions of unique users with its destination guides and travel reviews.

History
Founded by Jon Stonham and Riyaz Moorani in Hong Kong in 1997, AsiaHotels.com grew to a full fleet of operations with key offices in Manila and Singapore. Further enriching its expertise in the Asian market are projects with corporate partners which included CNN Hotel Partners, Global Sources, Reuters and South China Morning Post Publishers.

One feature which pushed the popularity of AsiaHotels.com is its collection of guest reviews posted on site. It spawned the survey program called Asian Hotel Awards in 2001 recognizing the best places to stay in when visiting the region for work or play. Inspired by the overwhelming response in votes, the first-ever guidebook, “Asia’s Best Hotels and Resorts”, was published in collaboration with Insight Guides in 2003. The book was sold in bookshops in and out of Asia, attracting a wide readership due to its indispensable reviews and full-color pictures. Successful runs in the press demanded a second edition in 2005 with updated listing. A year after, the Australia-New Zealand title saw print as well.
