Gateway could be doing other things to resolve that problem”. Said Jon Staff, CEO of Getaway. 

“We always try to remind ourselves that we are not creating the experience at Getaway. If we are doing it well, we are facilitating it, we are giving you everything you need and nothing you don’t. There’s a lot of freedom to make of it what you want as the guest, but there are also boundaries”. Said Jon Staff, CEO of Getaway. 

What the investors have to say: “Rather than promoting traditional tourist activities, Getaway emphasizes disconnecting from all the distractions and stresses of daily life. So, it’s cabins don’t include WIFI and also they have lockboxes where visitors can hide their phones till the duration of their visit”. General manager at Certares. 

“For a while i had this anxiety that we don’t fit in any box, but later on we learned the benefits of not fitting in any box, that’s where innovation really lies. And the Getaway approach seemed to resonate in 2020 with booking increasing over 150% year over year and the out-spot operating at nearly 100% occupancy”. Said General manager of Starwood Group Capital.
