Bungolow Launches Upscale LatAm Hotel Flash-Sale Site

Projects & Participants

Bungolow, a 1st Generation Start-Up Chile participant, is a members-only travel club featuring upscale Latin American hotels at rates of up to 50% off, that was launched, yesterday, just in time for the classic holiday travel rush. Founded by “the Scotts” (Thompson and Bird), the site is now live and actively attaining members interested in receiving travel deals from alluring, undiscovered LatAm properties.

As of yesterday’s beta-launch, one luxury LatAm–located property will be marketed for two weeks at a time after having been “hand-selected and reviewed by the Bungolow team for quality of service, amenities, and character,” states the founding duo. They add that their client acquisition model is based on quality over quantity and that, “to protect the private sales model, membership is provided on a referral basis, but is free.”

Bungolow, based full-time in Santiago, Chile, is seeking to fill the tourism gap between Latin America, a hugely under-tapped market, and the rest of the world. “LatAm countries welcome over 60 million international tourists a year and for good reason; there are so many treasures to uncover here. We are showcasing some beautiful and striking hotels that are currently underserved by the private sales model,” says Scott Thompson.
