Who is Helen Atanacio?

Helen Atanacio, is a truly well-seasoned entrepreneur and a veteran of the hospitality industry.

Helen Atanacio honed her skills by holding just about every position made available. It is this formidable collection of experience and knowledge which she brings to bear on behalf of her clients, ventures and in the varied services she offers.

Helen Atanacio is originally from the rolling countryside of Yorkshire England. 

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 in 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.

Helen Atanacios’ Hotel Links was the first online travel agency in the Philippines. 

Hotel Links was and continues to be, a leading and affordable hotel distribution, marketing and management tools platform for independent hoteliers and tour operators.

Helen Atanacio: President & CEO

In the hotel and resort industry in the Philippines just over a decade ago, there was no online booking platform, portal and having a website was out of reach for medium, small and boutique size properties.

Helen Atanacio; as a boutique hotel owner on the lovely island of Boracay, in the Philippines, saw an opportunity –not just for her property, but for every property on the island.  Now, with nearly 1,000 properties under their platform, Hotel Links now gives the online booking, management systems and SEO of ‘the big boys’ to boutique, small, to medium size properties.   www.HotelLinkSolutions.com


Helen Atanacio – Your Hospitality Hub

Helen Atanacio:  Founder

Your Hospitality Hub or YHH is exactly what it states in its name:  a wonderful place for hospitality professionals to go, to get needed resources to maintain and level-up their careers.  

Helen Atanacio began YHH with an idea: 

How-to directly help the Philippines in their efforts to compete globally with their service standards –especially here in the Eastern region of the world.  Nearby Singapore, Australia and Thailand seem to beat the Philippines in rank every year.  Nonetheless, tourist love the Philippines’ culture and tourism is booming.  In addition, there is a massive rise in wealth in the Philippines, which has sparked a rise in middle-class income, which in turn, has millions of people eating out, socializing and celebrating at venues every day.

Helen Atanacio saw this trend and wanted to be a part of it. www.YourHospitalityHub.com

“The service and hospitality industries at-large in the Philippines, are known around the globe; to be lacking.  Filipino Hospitality however, is hands-down, among the kindest in the world.  Lack of exposure, training, ranking and opportunities for advancement have hurt the service and hospitality standards in businesses.  We intend to change all of that.” –Helen Atanacio
