DALLAS--St. George’s only 4-Star/4-Diamond resort, Amira Resort, has joined in partnership with OpenKey, the industry standard for universal mobile key technology in hotels. This partnership will allow Amira Resort to offer its guests an experience-focused technology platform with a mobile access solution that grants keyless access to rooms and more.
Mobile technology in the hospitality industry has seen a robust development over the past few years, and OpenKey has made these technological advances accessible to boutique brands and independent properties. Identifying this opportunity in the overlap between the tech and hospitality markets has led to the brand’s significant growth and recent expansion across eight countries and four continents this year.
Along with keyless access to their rooms, guests of Amira Resort can tap the OpenKey app to obtain directions to the property, book amenities, notify the resort of early or late arrival, access Wi-Fi codes, and more. OpenKey technology also eliminates the need for disposable plastic keys, a plus for any eco-conscious traveler with the natural beauty of spots like southern Utah on their minds.
“As a newly transformed resort, we’re really excited to offer our guests the cutting-edge technology and many benefits of OpenKey,” said Dwain Schallenberger, Owner of Amira Resort. “Travelers explore southern Utah to feel ‘at one’ with nature, and with OpenKey we’re offering our guests access to the future of hospitality – a seamless stay experience with convenience at their fingertips.”
Recently opened in November 2017, Amira Resort welcomes guests with a distinctive luxury experience inspired by the rugged red-rock beauty and reliably blue skies of southern Utah. Situated in historic St. George, the resort invites travelers and locals alike to relax, rejuvenate and embark on adventure while satisfying personal wellness desires with luxurious accommodations and onsite amenities. The all-new Spa at Amira also features two swimming pools and an expansive outdoor labyrinth. Guests will also enjoy the resort’s location, which provides convenience to some of most beautiful and revered public wilderness in the country, including Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and the Grand Canyon.
“We’re thrilled to be adding a destination-driven, independent property like Amira Resort to our portfolio,” said Brian Shedd, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for OpenKey. “Guests of the property will be able to discover the stress-free experience that comes with OpenKey’s technology as they explore the destination during their stay.”
