Habitas was founded in 2014 by Oliver Ripley, Kfir Levy and Eduardo Castillo with the idea to produce events that brought people together and share interests such as music, food, and art. The success of those events led to the idea of building hotels based on the same retreat concept, launching the first one in 2016 in Tulum, Mexico. Today, they stand by the same principles of providing a hotel experience powered by music, wellness, art, adventure, food, learning and giving back.
“We are thrilled to support Habitas’ expansion plans with our industry-leading distribution products and the expertise of our team,” said Frank Trampert, senior vice president, global managing director of community sales for Sabre Hospitality. “This, paired with the advance functionalities of our hospitality technology solutions, can help Habitas improve the customer experience, their global visibility, and generate more bookings by expanding their distribution.”
