Conrad Maldives Rangali Island offers i-Pod Touch service for its guests

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island brings the hotel’s entire list of services to its guests’ fingertips with the December launch of personalised i-Pod Touch for its guests. Each guest arriving at the six-star resort will be given their own i-Pod Touch, loaded with ‘Hotel Evolution’ which allows the guest to customise every aspect of their stay; from finding out about special events and booking spa appointments to receiving last-minute details about promotions and requesting more pillows.

“At Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, we believe passionately in incorporating the latest technology and making it available to our guests,” says Carsten Schieck, General Manager. “We’ve always invested in the most up-to-the-minute electronics and we are sure that our guests will love their new i-Pod touch. These devices are interactive, very convenient and make it easier for guests to discover all of the many facilities at our resort in their own time.  Everything you could want to find out about our resort is right there at your fingertips making it incredibly easy for our guests to make the most of their stay at the resort.”

The advantages are many: guests using their i-Pod touch can easily view every detail of the resort, which includes restaurant menus, the resort’s full wine list of over 1,450 different wines, excursions, activities, special offers and information about the resort’s three spas. Guests will be able to order in-villa dining, have additional items such as toiletries or pillows sent to their room and book excursions, restaurant reservations, spa treatments and other activities directly through their i-Pod Touch. Requests are handled in real-time with the resort’s staff being able to respond directly to the guest to confirm or clarify the guest’s wishes.

The convenience of having this information readily available ensures that the guest can find out information at their leisure and communicate directly with the resort. The i-Pod touch is also loaded with a full picture library and resort map.

Each i-Pod Touch is branded with the resort’s logo and has been programmed with ‘Hotel Evolution’ by runtriz, a US-based software developer specialising in the hospitality sector. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is the only hotel in Asia Pacific – in fact, with exception of one resort in Turkey, it is the only hotel outside of the US – to offer this service.
