Are you the type of person who takes your Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad everywhere? If so, you are like many. In fact, this is one device you probably take with you when traveling – regardless of the destination.
But what if you don’t have an Apple iPad? Or what if you leave yours at home by mistake? In most cases, you are out of luck.
For those who are staying at the Burj Al Arab luxury hotel in Dubai, there is no such thing as being out of luck. In fact, this hotel knows a thing or two about making people feel at home.
Those who decide to stay at this hotel will receive a 24 carat gold Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad upon checking in. While they don’t get to keep the tablet when they leave the hotel for good, it is meant to serve as a personal virtual concierge.
Imagine that. You check into this hotel and are immediately handed a gold plated Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad. While some people think it is nice that they can get free wireless internet access, the Burj Al Arab luxury hotel has gone above and beyond that.
Is this a bit over the top? On the surface, this may be true. But remember, luxury hotels are doing whatever it takes to compete with others. They are doing whatever it takes to draw people in. What better way of doing so than by taking advantage of Apple technology?
With the iPad, guests are able to access hotel services, such as dining, spa, and housekeeping. This makes it much easier for each and every guest to get exactly what they want out of their trip, without wasting a single minute of time.
As exciting as this sounds, this is not the first time the Burj Al Arab luxury hotel has gone to this extreme. Last year, the same hotel debuted 24 carat pink gold tablets to support breast cancer.
You are probably wondering where the Burj Al Arab hotel got its hands on such a device. Well, they can think the good people at The Gold & Co. London for producing such a cool item.
This may not be reason enough to visit Dubai and stay at the Burj Al Arab, but those who are going to be visiting the country might as well consider doing so.
This is just another example of how companies are using Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) technology to their advantage.
