New Relais & Châteaux application for Blackberry

Written by

Following the success of the Relais & Châteaux application for the iPhone, downloaded more than 45,000 times, an application for Blackberry is now available which is just as functional and practical. With this app you will be able to search and reserve a room or a table in one of our 500 charming hotels and gourmet restaurants.

The application is free-of-charge and available on all recent Blackberry models, with or without touchscreen. It has numerous functionalities in order to search for a property (by name/destination) and to see availability as well as the proposal of various stays: presentation of special offers by region/country with search for availability.

The application includes the full presentation of each property with photos and videos, descriptions, services and activities, rates, contacts, access and the possibility to verify availability.

Application made for sharing

Guests can select their Relais & Châteaux favourites, save the history of their travels and send information to their friends.

Reservations made simple

Once the property is selected, users can reserve their stay through our dedicated call centre or the switchboard of the corresponding property.

3 search modes are available:

  • by destination
  • by availability
  • by property name

You can also:

  • Search for availabilities of special offers on your preferred dates
  • Save a travelogue of the properties that you visited
  • Manage your favourite properties.
  • The application is available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

“30%* of our guests have a Blackberry so that it is essential for us to use this new technology to be as close to them as possible. The Blackberry application is a gateway to our guests. It helps them dream of our most beautiful destinations and facilitates reservation in our properties: this makes it easier to access an unforgettable Relais & Châteaux experience”, declares Jaume Tàpies, International Chairman of the Board of Relais & Châteaux.
