James Villa Holidays

We recently announced that due to the phenomenal demand from their clients, that Kent-based James Villa Holidays, the UK’s largest villa tour operator had requested additional detached Villas and Cottages to add to their rental portfolio exclusively contracted with Desert Springs.

This week, Desert Springs was host to Jo Richardson, Product Executive of the Contracts Department of James Villa Holidays Ltd and three members of their Sales team; Stephanie Richards, Alexis Bull and Lisa Warne.

Jo Richardson commented:

“Personally, this is my third visit to the resort and we had already sent two members of our Sales team to Desert Springs for an educational visit. Even in the technological world within which we all live and the readily available access to property rental websites such as our own, and the information they contain, 40% of our clients wish to deal directly with a member of our Sales team to discuss the resort they are considering visiting for a holiday in detail. As such, we feel it is imperative that our Sales executives can talk with authority from their own personal experience, not only in respect of the quality of the properties available for rental but also the restaurants, on-site staff and facilities available at the resort, as well as the area in general.

There is no better way to do this than to have members of our Sales team visit and stay at Desert Springs!”

During their visit, the James Villa team stayed in resort accommodation and carried out a full resort educational with Desert Springs departmental managers and an area tour.

James Villa Holidays Sales executive Alexis Bull commented:

“I know I speak on behalf of both Stephanie and Lisa when I say that whilst we had access to all of the marketing material related to Desert Springs and received a number of resort presentations in our UK Head office, nothing compares to the real thing. To consider we have achieved 110 weeks of rentals at Desert Springs already, can you imagine what 2011 is going to bring with the knowledge that already six of our Sales team have experienced this wonderful resort first hand themselves!”

Brigid Irwin of the Property Management department of Playas del Almanzora SL remarked:

“It has been a real benefit and pleasure to have had the opportunity to personally meet the James Villa team members and I am extremely confident from their feedback received that their visit to the resort will only have a positive consequence for future rentals.”
