KUALA LUMPUR—The newly renovated and rebranded Sama-Sama Hotel, a five-star hotel formerly under the Pan Pacific flag, has installed Bartech’s fully automatic minibars in all 442 guestrooms. The minibars are fitted with custom glass doors and communicate over an Ethernet network.
The property, which is linked to Kuala Lumpur International Airport via sky bridge, will also implement eTrays in its 100 suites and executive rooms to increase the in-room product offering, as Bartech eTrays are proven to be efficient in boosting a hotel’s in-room revenue, according to the company. 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.
Sama-Sama Hotel’s managers initially selected Bartech automatic minibars last summer, while the hotel was still affiliated with the Pan Pacific brand. “Sama-Sama’s decision to install Bartech automatic minibars was based on the need for a fast turnaround period for rooms, as well as productivity requirements and better service offerings to its customers,” Hans Winsnes of Sama-Sama, said in a statement.
As part of the hotel’s renovation, Sama-Sama Hotel’s management team placed considerable emphasis on enhancing its green credentials. A standard option on Bartech’s automatic minibars is the Computerized Energy Saving System (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.
