First Hotel in Singapore to Launch Game-changing Perk for Guests – Comparing the best deals for travel data packages or trying to tap on free WIFI at every seemingly-dubious hotspot will be a thing of the past for guests of Royal Plaza on Scotts Singapore, starting January 2019. Asia Pacific’s Best Independent Hotel (newly-inducted to TTG Travel Awards Hall of Fame 2018), Royal Plaza on Scotts Singapore (RP), is known for providing meaningful and personalised service, with signature perks such as free in-room minibar, Nespresso coffee and high-speed WIFI in all 511 guest rooms, since 2007. The hotel did not just boost the guests’ in-room experience after a recent major renovation. RP tops guests’ expectations by enhancing their travel experience beyond the hotel room with the introduction of free unlimited data on pocket WIFI devices. Having a personal mobile hotspot means that all guests get to enjoy connection on their own devices for easy access to information, contacts and favourite apps, minus the hassle of using and adapting to foreign devices.
Partnering with Yogifi by Passpod, RP is the first hotel in Singapore to launch the game-changing benefit with pocket WIFI devices that store enough juice to last up to 15 hours per charge. The powerhouse connects up to five devices at 4G LTE high speed for the first 500MB every day. (That’s about 15GB of high-speed data per month!) Mobile data remains accessible after the first 500MB of free high-speed data so guests are never left stranded without an internet connection.
“Getting connected and staying connected are so important that travellers plan ahead to order travel SIM cards or book pocket WIFI devices before their trips. Wayfinding, updating social media and being connected on messaging apps are deeply integrated into our lives. It is not a luxury to stay connected but a necessity to do so. It’s a paradox that modern travellers are subjected to high costs for a quintessential, in monetary terms and also the investment of effort to find the best value travel data package in the market. Having pocket WIFI devices with unlimited data at our guests’ fingertips takes off some stress from travelling (whether it’s for setting up a business appointment or booking a ride to get around) and that’s what RP’s hospitality is about,” said Mr Patrick Fiat, General Manager and Chief Experience Officer (CEO) of RP.
Residents of the hotel’s sister property, 8 on Claymore Serviced Residences (8oC), enjoy the same perk from January 2019, for those who are here for long-term stays.
Visiting Singapore? Just ensure that “Roaming” is off for mobile data and surf to your heart’s content when staying with RP and 8oC.
