Virtual reality brings Sheraton Bali Kuta experience to Plaza Indonesia - (-/-)

The Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort will conduct a promotional event using virtual and augmented reality at the Plaza Indonesia shopping center in Jakarta from July 14 to Aug. 13.

The exhibition at Plaza Indonesia’s East Point will showcase the resort’s award-winning facilities, like the Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience and its opulent wedding options.

During the exhibition, visitors will be able to picture what it feels like to stay at the resort thanks to a 360-degree video using virtual reality technology, which will transport them to the Bali resort. Visitors will then be able to visualize of the resort’s stunning modern Balinese interior, lavish amenities the infinite view of the Indian Ocean.

Here, the Jakarta audience can picture an unforgettable stay in the award-winning resort. Furthermore, the exhibition could help future brides and grooms explore venue choices for their wedding ceremonies by taking a look at the resort’s wedding coffee book through augmented reality technology.

By hovering the application over the photobook, couples get a comprehensive picture of different options available for their wedding at the five-star resort, which includes the 700-square-meter Sahid ballroom, the lush North Courtyard or the Bene Rooftop with Kuta Beach’s magical sunset as the backdrop. You can visualize for yourself what it might feel like to conduct your wedding ceremony at the resort without even having to go there.

“If a picture tells a thousand words, then virtual reality tells a whole book. A virtual tour adds value by making hotel features transparent for guests. It moves from the traditional two-dimensional images of ‘look before you book’ to a fully immersive experience. It is definitely changing how people make travel decisions,” Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort general manager Dario Orsini said.

To complement the promotional campaign through the virtual and augmented reality experiences, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is currently conducting an Instagram contest called “Sheraton Snap and Share” with the coveted prize of a free holiday at the resort.
