Bartech featured in Kuala Lumpur's Sama-Sama Hotel renovation

Bartech is helping Sama-Sama Hotel Kuala Lumpur International Airport to boost guestroom revenues with the installation of Bartech's minibars in all of the property’s guestrooms. The five-star hotel formerly under the Pan Pacific flag installed Bartech's Computerized Energy Saving System (CESS) minibars, with the minibars fitted with custom glass doors and communicating over an Ethernet network.

The installation is part of the additions introduced in the newly renovated and rebranded Sama-Sama Hotel, which now offers 442 newly renovated guestrooms across nine floors; a choice of three restaurants serving fusion offerings; a 24-hour health club for a workout; and a sauna.

As part of the hotel's renovations, Sama-Sama Hotel's management team placed emphasis on enhancing its green credentials. A standard option on Bartech's automatic minibars is the CESS technology that monitors and adjusts cooling production according to guestroom status, hotel occupancy, and other criteria. All of this helps hotels reduce energy consumption.

Also as part of the renovations, Sama-Sama Hotel will implement eTrays in their 100 suites and executive rooms. Like all Bartech products, eTrays are available in various sizes and flexible finishes to fit any in-room decoration; Sama-Sama Hotel opted for a modern black aluminum finish.

The property’s partnership with the technological company is expected reduce the number of minibar attendants on staff and simultaneously increase revenue from minibar sales.

Bartech offers customizable automatic minibars. Bartech is also the only minibar provider to incorporate three different types of sensor technologies into their advanced product design, including infrared, magnetic and micro-switch.

The renovations at Sama-Sama Luxury Hotel KL International Airport are expected to continue until the end of March.
