RCD Hotels taps Duetto for 2 properties in Mexico

When the Nobu Hotel Los Cabos opens, it will have Duetto’s GameChanger application to simplify the pricing process.

RCD Hotels is partnering with Duetto to have better forecasting insights and drive more revenue at its two newest properties, Hard Rock Hotel Los Cabos and Nobu Hotel Los Cabos.

RCD Hotels initially will install Duetto at five total properties, including the Eden Roc Hotel Miami Beach and Nobu Hotel Miami Beach. They will implement Duetto’s GameChanger application to simplify the pricing process, ScoreBoard to simplify their reporting process and BlockBuster to simplify their group business contracts.

Lourdes Ancona Valdes, corporate director of revenue management at RCD Hotels, said in a statement her team was looking to partner with a forward-thinking technology company that would team with them to develop strategies and product features specific to the all-inclusive market.

Two specific features will strengthen RCD Hotels’ all-inclusive revenue strategy: the ability to yield per-person rates and the ability to forecast demand up to five years into the future. While traditional urban hotels have shorter booking windows, all-inclusive properties are often booked further than a year in advance and therefore need better visibility into demand beyond 365 days.

RCD Hotels opened the first all-inclusive Hard Rock property, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and continues to grow its investment throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.

The 639-room Hard Rock Hotel Los Cabos marks Hard Rock’s fourth Mexican destinations. The 200-room Nobu Hotel Los Cabos, the first Nobu Hotel in Mexico, will represent a new and differentiated luxury product in the market.
