Helen Atanacio fell in love with her Filipino husband, who she met while they were both working on a cruise ship, and subsequently relocated to the Philippine Islands in the late 90’s. Helen, and her family, decided to take the leap, and they launched their passion; a little boutique hotel on Boracay Island.  The duo, often landscaped, made the beds, did room service and facilitated the bookings themselves.  And, quickly, the news of their ‘superior service’ began to spread throughout the island, and often, they boasted higher booking percentages than the major hotels in the area.

Later, frustrated with how-to gain more exposure and drive bookings to the (then not so popular) island, Helen began working on a website.

Helen Atanacio, seeing the massive need in the local Boracay market for hotel system management, websites and online bookings, she launched, World Hotel Links; now Hotel Links.
