Not content with having a gazillion Facebook fans and using wristbands to connect guests to the site while staying, Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel has now become the first hotel to allow guests to literally pay with their fingerprints.
The swanky Ibiza property will install 14 PayTouch touchpoints throughout its hotel that guests can tap to pay for fast track entry to events or see discounts, prizes and promotions.Each guest will be able to access their free online account through the touchpoints, which are set to be popular with guests attending its events. Systems similar to this are already widely used on cruise ships and some may argue the move is to complete the ‘all-inclusive’ model.
“Once again, we are delighted to lead the way in new technology within the hotel and leisure industry,” said Alfonso Giménez, marketing director of Fiesta Hotel Group. “We are constantly seeking new ways of differentiating our products and the technological developments at Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, twinned with the additional music components, have not only set the benchmark for the industry but have also enhanced the whole Ushuaïa experience for our guests”.
