Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort goes to Jakarta with its Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Experience
Experience the luxurious Kuta like never before as Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is coming to Jakarta, bringing the latest technology in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. A leading name in the hospitality industry, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort will hold an exhibition in Jakarta from 14 July – 13 August 2017. Taking place at Plaza Indonesia, East Point, the exhibition will showcase Sheraton Bali’s award-winning facilities including the Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience and its opulent wedding options.
During the exhibition, visitors will get the chance to peek in real-time the luxurious resort through the immersive Virtual Reality technology. The visitor can peek into the experimental visual of the 360-degree video that will transport them to Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort with its stunning modern Balinese interior, lavish amenities and the infinity view of the Indian Ocean. Through this VR technology, the Jakarta audiences could see, feel and experience an unforgettable stay at this award-winning resort from the comfort of their seat in Plaza Indonesia.
While for the bride and groom to be, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is collaborating with Vara wedding, Bali’s trusted wedding planner to ease the search for the perfect wedding venue easier by breathing life to its wedding coffee-book through the Augmented Reality technology. By hovering the app over the photobook, couples will get the complete immersive preview of the different options available to tie the knot at this five-star resort. Whether it is in the 700 sqm Sahid ballroom, the lush North Courtyard or at Bene Rooftop overlooking the magical sunset of Kuta Beach; a dream wedding at the Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is easy to visualize and manifest.
General Manager of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort, Dario Orsini commented, “If a picture tells a thousand words, then virtual reality tells a whole book. A virtual tour gives more value by offering guests the transparency on the hotel features. VR enhances the customer’s experience, moving from the traditional 2D images of ‘look before you book’, to fully immersive experiences. The viewers are temporarily transported to ‘real’ moments at the resort. Guests are the center of the story in this case, to provide them the experience to interact with the resort, before even stepping foot there. It has the power to engage and touch human emotions and it is definitely changing how people make travel decisions. We are proud to be among the first few hotels in Indonesia to embark on this technology and to revolutionize the hospitality industry.”
