Revolutionising guest experience, Club Med rolls out digital bracelet tech in Maldives
Club Med has rolled out a new digital bracelet system to give more premium holiday experiences to its customers travelling to Club Med Kani and Finolhu Villas in the Maldives.
Designed to be more convenient and functional, this new high-tech wearable is embedded with an encoded chip, incorporating multiple keyless functions that allow guests ease of unlocking their room doors and card-less payment. Transactions are captured via mobile readers at most points of sales.
The waterproof digital bracelet is handed to guests upon arrival in the island and can be worn at all times, even while they engage in water sports or take a shower. Designed and manufactured with toxic-free and recyclable materials, the digital bracelet is child-friendly as well.
“Club Med has been an innovator in the vacation business,” said Xavier Desaulles, CEO of Club Med East South Asia Pacific. “These bracelets continue our innovative spirit by merging technology with heritage to deliver a seamless and enhanced in-resort experience.”
After the trial runs in the Maldives, Club Med plans to introduce the digital bracelet system in its properties across the world.
Club Med, the French pioneer of luxury all-inclusive holiday experience, runs two resorts in the Maldives; Club Med Kani and Club Med Finolhu Villas.
Redesigned in 2010 and located on a paradise island garden in the Maldives with a magnificent lagoon in the north of Male atoll, Club Med Kani is a quiet and unique resort, ideal for couples. An 800-metre sandy, private beach is equipped with deckchairs, parasols, hammocks, showers and a beach bar, while guests also have access to an infinity pool located on the edge of the beach, a sailing academy with specialist instructors and the Club Med Spa by Mandara Spa. Two restaurants and two bars are on offer and for Five Trident guests, the Five Trident Luxury Space provides an exclusive area with luxury accommodation, private swimming pool and access to all the services and activities at the resort.
Occupying the island of Gasfinolhu, a 40-minute boat ride from the main Velana International Airport, Club Med Finolhu Villas features 52 villas — over water and on the beach — that line the sunrise and sunset sides of the island. The resort sets itself from other properties in the Maldives with its “eco chic” offering; built from sustainable materials and 100 percent powered by the solar panels that line the roofs of the jetties.
