Soneva has partnered with digital currency payments solutions provider Triple-A and payment platform provider Pomelo Pay to expand its payment options. As a licensed digital currency payments solutions provider, Triple-A offers digital currencies payments that are protected from the risk of price volatility, offering instant confirmation, locked-in exchange rates, real-time conversions and no chargebacks. Used in conjunction with Pomelo Pay, a single frictionless payment platform, it facilitates digital currency payments using secure QR code and payment link technology.
“At Soneva, we have always endeavoured to be a pioneer in the hospitality industry, hence accepting digital currencies as a payment method is another example of enabling our international guests to easily make payments from anywhere in the world,” said Bruce Bromley, Chief Financial Officer, and Deputy CEO of Soneva.
“As more businesses look to innovate how they make and take payments, this is the perfect opportunity to not only give consumers the choice to pay the way they want to but to facilitate seamless technology,” added Vincent Choi, CEO of Pomelo Pay.
Offering the option of making digital currencies payments makes sense for an organisation such as Soneva which is committed to promoting sustainable and responsible tourism. While this is a decidedly bold move, Soneva is not the first luxury hospitality company to embrace digital currencies payments – groups like The Pavilion Hotels & Resorts have been accepting digital currency since 2021.
Guests can make secure international payments at Soneva Fushi, Soneva Jani and Soneva in Aqua in the Maldives, and Soneva Kiri in Thailand, and also use Bitcoin and Ethereum for Soneva Villa Ownership.
