High expectations for a relaxing day by the beach can vanish in the sun as you scuffle back and forth in the hot sand searching for that sun lounge under a shady beach umbrella with a splendid view of the sea. And just as you eye it, someone faster than you snatches it from under your nose. Dirty looks are exchanged, or maybe a nasty word or two…You walk away, waiting for your day in the sun to arrive. Well, wait no more, because Plazz has designed an application just for you. The goal is to enhance your beach-going experience by allowing you to reserve a sun lounge in advance.
Launched in the summer of 2015, it premiered at swanky Astir Beach to provide a unique customized experience for clientele. The service caught on and has grown to include locations in Crete, Corfu, Naxos, Santorini, Zakynthos and other islands.
“We are actively growing our Plazz partner network, and we aim to cooperate with every major beach in Greece by 2017,” state Plazz founders, Manos Paterakis and Lefteris Farmakas who came up with the idea after researching ways to enhance the seaside experience.”We are also very excited as within 2016 we expect to announce our first 3 international partnerships as we expand our partner network outside the Greek boarders, into other geographies”.
So far, the platform caters to more than 10,000 users who can choose their preferred beach location and select a beach bed from a network of more than 1,200 beds. There’s even a VIP beach beds and Cabanas application where you are guaranteed to be treated like royalty.
