ResortPass, which has pioneered the offering of day access to luxury hotels and resorts around the world, has raised $26 million in Series B funding and appointed Michael Wolf as CEO.
The round was co-led by Declaration Partners and 14W, with existing lead investor CRV participating and additional new investors including William Morris Endeavor, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, and Brian Kelly, also known as The Points Guy.
ResortPass allows a user to easily access a property’s amenities such as the pool, spa, fitness center, and more without having to book an overnight stay.
First launched in 2016, ResortPass works with more than 900 hotels and resorts around the world, including the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, W Hotels, Hyatt Hotels, Fairmont, and Westin, allowing users to enjoy luxury experiences in their local neighborhoods.
Over the last year, ResortPass has more than doubled its number of users, and has delivered over 1,600,000 guests to its partner hotels since inception.
In addition to being the leading consumer marketplace in this space, ResortPass also serves as the main provider of day access management software for hotels, providing a robust SaaS software solution for its partners.
“The ResortPass product-market fit is the strongest I have seen in over two decades of collaborations with innovative businesses,” said Michael Wolf, the new CEO of ResortPass.
“Consumers are obsessed with the access they now have to our partners and our partners deeply value these new consumers. Investors expressed that same degree of enthusiasm throughout this raise. We are excited to be the leader in the rise of the day guest, and I could not be more energized to lead ResortPass in the next phase of its journey.”
