The introduction of this digital service is also a sustainable option. It reduces the use of plastic hence turning into an environment-friendly service.

Which Hotels In Dubai Are Providing Digital Key Service?

Renowned hotel lines like Radisson group, Park Hyatt and Hilton resorts offer this service. Dubai is a popular travel destination for people worldwide, drawing millions of visitors each month. In the first half of 2022, the emirate welcomed 7.12 million foreign visitors, up from 2.52 million over the same period in the previous year. By the conclusion of the second quarter of 2022, there were 116,800 keys in the branded hospitality sector in the UAE.

Different hotels have a precise system of digital keys. Members of World of Hyatt must install the World of Hyatt app. They can maintain their reservations and activate the mobile entry option through the app. When guests tap on a blue label with their hotel room and a “key,” the booking is confirmed. It follows an SMS with an activation code. When the guest enters the code, Bluetooth is turned on, so they can press it on their door to unlock it.

Guests of Hilton Honors have access to digital keys and several additional member-only perks. However, to do this, they must sign up for the Hilton Honors loyalty programme.
