FIRST IN SOUTHEAST ASIA: ASTON LAUNCHES GOOGLE NEST IN HOTEL ROOMS

12 November 2020

Jakarta, 12 November 2020 - Archipelago International, Southeast Asia’s largest privately owned and independent hotel operator once again underlines its pioneering role in the industry by introducing Google Nest at the newly opened and very chic ASTON Cilegon Boutique Hotel.
 
TOUCHLESS HOSPITALITY
 
All 103 stylish studios and suites feature Google Nest Hub displays that enable guests to control their room features through voice recognition and eliminate the need for traditional hotel telephones. From requesting extra towels and information on local activities to the comfort of choosing your favorite music while under the bed covers; ASTON relieves common hotel frustrations and redefines ‘services at your fingertips’.
 
As we continue to provide safe, trusted and innovative solutions that guests are familiar with when they choose to stay with us, we now introduce touchless hospitality, which is not only an incredible guest convenience but also takes the new health and safety protocols to the next level by entirely eliminating the need for touching critical surfaces and spreading germs and potentially viruses,” says John M. Flood, President & CEO of Archipelago International.
 
We live in an age of personalized on-demand content with the likes of Netflix, Youtube, Spotify etc.,” adds Jules Brookfield, VP Technology. “Guests want to continue watching their Netflix shows and listening to their personalized Spotify playlists just as they do at home. This is called ‘BYOC’ (Bring Your Own Content) and we support this by creating a hotel environment where they can ‘cast’ their own content to the Smart TV and Smart Speaker available in their hotel room”.
 
The technological surprises do not stop here. How about 98 Japanese TV channels for example? Through its Android TV solution, ASTON Cilegon Boutique Hotel has moved away from the limitations of traditional hotel TV offerings and allows guests to stream live TV from various countries around the world - notably in HD quality.
 
INDUSTRY INNOVATOR AND CHANGER
 
Archipelago International has a long history of innovation as it pioneered cloud computing in the industry and brought condotels to Asia, just to mention a couple. Thus, it comes as no surprise that ASTON Cilegon Boutique Hotel is the first and only hotel in Southeast Asia that comes with these stunning features.
