Here’s something slightly out of the box and quite cool. Signature Lux Hotels will open their first hotel in June 2017, and what makes this special exactly? The hotel will be the first of its kind in Africa & South Africa. Located in the heart of the Golden Mile, Sandton, Johannesburg – Signature Lux Hotels are embracing an exciting, modern, creative, eco-friendly and innovative room space.
The Signature Lux Hotel experience offers guests exclusive services such as a fully integrated app, which offers more than just a booking function. This basically means that your entire hotel visit is controlled at your fingertips. After your first stay, check in remotely from any location and your cell phone doubles up as your room key. Signature Lux offer a 24-hour hassle free, self-service check-in kiosk, automated housekeeping, internal Wi-Fi calling and built in “call-a-cab” service.
Guests can enjoy free, uncapped, unshaped Wi-Fi and individual Wi-Fi routers in each room to take full advantage of the movie and music streaming services from 40 inch Samsung smart TV’s.
“We have developed a technically advanced room space using specialised lighting, mood music, providing free high-speed internet connectivity allowing our guests to be able to use their smartphones as room keys amongst several other tech items”, said Paul Kelley – Managing Director.
Signature Lux Hotels provide the best connectivity, with social hubs for enhanced networking opportunities, ultimately offering an exclusive experience for tech-savvy travelers. The progressive hotel chain is targeting tech-savvy millennials and business travelers who value the freedom to travel.
Their first property in Sandton is located 30 steps from Nelson Mandela Square, 300 steps from the Sandton Convention Centre and 230 steps from the Gautrain station. This sought after property will also be the most “Instagrammable” building in the city with wildlife murals painted by Faith47.com.
Signature Lux has formed a partnership with the Endangered Wildlife Trust and one of the partnership initiatives entails giving back R5 for each room booked to protect the endangered wildlife. Furthermore, the group has made strides in reducing their carbon footprint by installing a state of the art water purification system that makes it safe to drink from the tap, eliminating the need for bottled water.
A truly amazing concept that definitely signals the start of something great and futuristic. Exciting whichever way you look at it and definitely the perfect blend of technology and comfort.
