Palladium Hotel Group introduces smart bracelets

Palladium Hotel Group introduces smart bracelets or VIB (very important bracelet), which will be available to all guests staying at Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel and the new Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, opening this summer. Guest don’t have to carry room keys or money. Guests will be able to  open their rooms, access different establishments around the hotel, pay for any product using an assigned PIN code, and have many discounts at on-site facilities. The bracelets are programmed to ensure that guests’ information is protected during their stay.

The branded VIB intelligent bracelet substitutes the biometric payment system of PayTouch and takes it a step further as "wearable technology" containing radiolocation systems and radio-frequency identification.

The bracelets are coded according to customer preferences ranging from room admission, “express checkout," access to guest’s Facebook and Twitter profiles for picture and content sharing, as well as payments with a PIN account or via credit card. For those looking for a red carpet treatment, there are three special packages such as the "USHUAÏA CLUBBER PACK" which includes 10 drinks, access to the VIP lounge and a special breakfast, at a much lower price than usual.
