Luxury Caribbean Resort and Scottish Hotel Sign On with Crave In-Room Tablets

The BodyHoliday luxury resort in St Lucia is set to be the first Caribbean property featuring in-room tablets from Crave Interactive, a UK-based provider of in-room tablets and app-based solutions for upscale hotels.
Crave’s tablets will be installed in 155 rooms at The BodyHoliday, including its luxurious penthouse suite. The resort, which sits on a 150-metre beach and is surrounded by 42 acres of tropical gardens, also features an award-winning spa, the Wellness Centre, which is one of the top spas in the Caribbean.
“Our guests spend almost all of their time within the resort, and we have a complete range of top-quality facilities and activities onsite, so being able to communicate directly with guests about everything that’s on offer via the in-room tablets will be brilliant,” said Vinod Biscette, a spokesman for The Body Holiday. “It will enhance the guest experience tremendously, which is always our first priority, and it will also have very clear commercial benefits.”
In other company news, Crave Interactive is also bringing its state-of-the-art tablet technology to the wilds of western Scotland. One of the company’s latest confirmed signings is the luxury Isle of Eriska Hotel, which stands on its own island at the mouth of Loch Creran in Argyll.
The luxurious rooms at Eriska – which are set in a historic 19th-century country house – will feature Crave’s custom-made in-room tablets, which will allow the property for instant digital communication with guests, direct room service ordering, spa bookings and more.
The Isle of Eriska Hotel features its own Michelin-starred restaurant as well as a recently opened second eatery, a golf course, and an ESPA spa, and offers guests various organized activities, on- and off-site.
“We’re delighted to be working with Crave,” said Isle of Eriska owner, Beppo Buchanan-Smith. “We provide guests with a high degree of modern luxury in a richly historical setting, and the in-room tablets will fit into the guest experience here perfectly. We have so much on offer at the hotel, including our new Deck Restaurant at the Stables Spa, and we’re sure that the tablets will prove very beneficial in letting guests know what’s available.”
According to Crave, its exclusive in-room tablets are the first in the world to be designed specifically for use in hotel bedrooms, and come preloaded with Crave OS, Crave’s proprietary operating system, allowing for instant in-room food and beverage ordering, bookings, and guest communications, instantly updateable digital directories and menus, and limitless scope for additional sales and tailored in-room advertising.
