Creating meal plan packages for ryokans

Updated 10 months ago

Ryokan accommodations on Booking.com have the option of adding multiple meal plan packages on the Extranet and attaching them directly to rate plans, providing guests with unique pricing and detailed food info.

These meal plans can contain pictures as well as details about serving times, areas, and dishes. 

With this solution, guests can now book with more confidence knowing the extent of their available options, and enjoy the different offerings from ryokans.

How do I set up a ryokan meal plan?

  1. Go to the meal package page on the Extranet.

  2. Create a meal or multiple meals on this page – you can choose from breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner. You should also add a descriptive meal title (e.g. Western breakfast buffet, Shabu Shabu beef dinner, etc.).

  3. Attach the created meal(s) to a meal plan package and give it a descriptive name (e.g. Shabu beef dinner package, Breakfast buffet package, etc.).

  4. Next, go to the rate plan page to attach your new meal plan package.

  5. Choose an existing rate plan and change the meal option to your new meal plan package, OR: Create a new rate plan and attach your meal plan package.

  6. If you create a new rate plan, go to the calendar to add availability and pricing to your new meal plan.

Note: 

  • It can take up to 1 hour for the new meal plan to show up on the guest-facing website.

  • This is currently only available for Japanese-language properties and guests.
