Hyatt Ziva Cancun updates rooms with Crave in-room tablets

Turquoize at Hyatt Ziva Cancun, owned by Playa Hotels & Resorts, installs Crave’s state of the art, in-room tablets. With a “resort within a resort” feel, Turquoize was designed with the contemporary adult traveler in mind, offering 160 lavish suites each with 270-degree ocean views, exclusive resort access, professional butler service and as of September 2016.

According to Jorge Soracci, Playa Hotels and Resorts regional director of rooms operations, including the cutting-edge technology as part of the room offer was a vital element in crafting the Turquoize brand within the all-inclusive Hyatt Ziva Cancun resort.

“It was essential that this property speak to international travelers who expect luxury to contain a technological aspect and Crave’s in-room tablets were a perfect fit,” Soracci said. “They are both highly functional and stylish in a way that matches perfectly with the setting.”

The Turquoize installation features the Crave T2, the second-generation model of the Crave Tablet, which was the first tablet designed specifically for hotels. The devices are powered by Crave’s innovative proprietary operating system, which allows for the inclusion of specialized content and replaces all printed room service menus and directories with a single digital system, providing instant ordering and booking for guests. The devices feature live remote updates and a large scope for customized push messaging and promotions.

“The opportunity for upselling and personalizing promotions is huge, but we’re even more excited by the major enhancement of the guest experience as they engage with a sleek digital device rather than a printed menu,” Soracci said.
