Abu Dhabi, April 21, 2016: Jannah Burj Al Sarab won Best for Technology Award at the first Leaders in Hospitality Awards 2016 by Hotel News Middle East Magazine held in St. Regis Dubai on April 19th, 2016. The Leaders in Hospitality Awards recognizes exceptional elements of properties, campaigns and people across the Middle East.
Jannah Burj Al Sarab, launched in 2015, had a vision to find a balance between innovation and comfort. The 18-storey hotel boasts having the fastest hotel Internet in the world at 1.2Gb per second, which is 10 times faster than the average speed.
Aside from this record-breaking unique selling point, the hotel also applies smart applications for its systems that reduce power consumption in all 318 luxury rooms and suites. This technology controls the cooling system as well as generates solar power.
The entire hotel runs on LED lights saving up to 75% of power in comparison to traditional lighting. Additionally, all corridor lights are automatic and self-controlled. Moreover, Jannah Burj Al Sarab uses an energy efficient BMS system to regulate indoor temperature.
The water heaters use solar energy generated from boards installed on the hotel ceiling. Linens and fabrics that need to be laundered, are transferred through pipes, thus saving power from not using elevators.
Jannah Hotels & Resorts Chief Operating Officer Martin Persson said, “Jannah Hotels & Resorts strive to always be at the forefront of technological advancements in terms of product. We are grateful for this award which will spur us to continue raising our standards.”
The state-of-the-art technology used by the hotel permits guests to enjoy understated luxury during the course of their stay whilst fulfilling the sustainability plans for Abu Dhabi’s 2030 vision.
