Sunway is a vacation rental WordPress theme crafted to help you build a profitable vacation rental business. If you rent out a chalet, cabin, inn, resort residence, hotel, B&B, guest house or the like, the theme is going to fully suit your needs!
Sunway is built with MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin for WordPress. That’s why the theme sets itself out of the pack thanks to the integrated off-the-shelf property management and WordPress booking software.
The theme sets you up with a feature-rich PMS and an accommodation reservation toolkit: booking forms, real-time search availability form, a directory of rooms with photo galleries and amenities, flexible booking rules, seasonal pricing and rates, a great discount system, built-in international payment gateways, optional synchronization with OTAs, taxes and fees charges for proper accountability and more tools for managing your lodging.
The theme comes with all needed functionality to run a fully functional hospitality business website and (optionally) manage reservations. You’ll be able to
- Create a beautiful listing of all your properties;
- Control seasonal pricing and rates;
- Add a real-time search availability form;
- Rent property out online with or without instant payments;
- Synchronize direct site reservation with popular travel channels via iCal through the admin channel manager;
- Add taxes and fees;
- Increase direct bookings with your own website;
Sunway contains universal solution to help you manage your hospitality business online. Sunway’s functionality allows you to add accommodation types to display on the site, apply different seasonal pricing, set room rates, add photo galleries, manage online bookings and perform much more functions in order to easily take care of your hotel establishment with MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin.
Real-time search availability form
Travelers find an accommodation for needed dates and a number of people in a matter of clicks. The accommodation availability calendar will show a minimum length of stay based on the search parameters. You can also add your custom text to the “Children” parameter to make it more clear for your guests.
iCal support to sync bookings across OTAs automatically
Automatic synchronization of bookings submitted through your WordPress property rental website with those from online travel agents like Airbnb or Booking.com. Avoid overbooking!
Unlimited number of accommodations
Add and display unlimited number of rentals. For hotels with lots of rooms of the same type, you can generate accommodations automatically. You can add and display a property rental description, an image gallery, unlimited in-room amenities, rates, extra services and more for all individual accommodations.
Set any prices depending on a season or specific days / dates. “Season” is a general term and you can label it anyhow to reflect your pricing changes.
Set different rates based on the accommodation benefits (e.g. breakfast included / no breakfast). Your guests will choose the most suitable one while placing a booking.
Online and offline payments
The booking system accepts payments through PayPal, 2Checkout, Stripe and Beanstream/Bambora (these are built-in payment gateways you can use for free). Charge the full fee or deposit to confirm the booking, allow guests to pay after arrival.
PayPal is an online payment service that allows individuals and businesses to transfer funds electronically.
2Checkout works by allowing merchants to accept online payment for their goods and services.
Stripe is a technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the internet. Businesses of every size—from new startups to public companies—use Stripe software to accept payments and manage your businesses online.
Braintree is a full-stack payments platform that makes it easy to accept payments in your app or website. Our service replaces the traditional model of sourcing a payment gateway and merchant account from different providers. From single-touch payments to mobile and foreign currency acceptance.
Make the prices change dynamically depending on the search parameters of your guests. You can optionally customize accommodation rates by setting price variables based on a number of guests.
Weekly and Monthly Rates
You can set any property rate depending on a season (any term). To create different price points based on the length of stay, you can add weekly, monthly or other customizable rates. The system will automatically discount the accommodations according to your rate rules.
Booking Multiple Accommodations
One guest can reserve multiple accommodations for many people during one booking process. You may optionally turn on the plugin to recommend the best set of accommodations based on a number of guests.
The search algorithm is very smart, so your guests will get the most suitable results in seconds. However, the guest can skip the recommendation and make their own choice.
Attributes – Advanced Sorting Options
Provide unlimited custom details to the property description (location, accommodation types, bed size, price range etc) and add advanced search fields to the search availability form to be displayed on the accommodation page. Extra attributes help your guests to find what they are looking for really quickly and easily.
Flexible booking rules
Set min / max days to stay and available check-in and check-out dates for the entire hotel establishment, accommodations individually or seasons. You may also disable booking option for all accommodations or any one individually for a certain period of time.
Packages and services
Offer bookable extra services or packages (free or paid) along with the accommodation reservation. Charge per room or per person.
Confirm bookings automatically or manually, with or without a payment.
- by guest via email
- by admin manually
- by payment
Pending bookings that were not confirmed are getting updated with the “Abandoned” status, therefore, the accommodation becomes available for reservation. The website administrator can view the “Abandoned” bookings and get in touch with the prospective tenants via email.
You’ll be able to set a discount amount, an expiration date, select accommodation types, set check-in and check-out dates, minimum and maximum days to stay and apply other settings to customize your coupons.
Receive and send automatic notifications on each booking request – approve and cancel submissions via email. Easily customize content and design of your email templates.
The frontend and backend of the plugin are professionally translated into 14 languages: Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Swedish, Italian, Hungarian, Czech, Chinese, Dutch, French, Arabic and German (more on the way). The plugin is compatible with WPML.
MotoPress Hotel Booking plugin and Sunway Hotel Booking WordPress theme is GDPR compliant. Your guests will find the checkbox for opt-in consent below each booking form to accept your website terms and conditions before reservation
Taxes and fees
Complete and correct pricing information on all accommodation charges: add mandatory fees, accommodation taxes, service taxes and fee taxes. The guests will be able to see the summary of charges before making a booking. All this info on each booking is stored in the admin dashboard as well.
All received bookings and booking requests in their current statuses are stored at one place, easily sorted and displayed in a calendar view.
Mobile First Paradigm At Use
Mobile first philosophy will make the website a perfect piece for smaller screens, as well for the larger ones!
