Smartphones and the app revolution are supposed to make life easier, so it comes as no surprise that the hospitality industry is starting to see their worth. Thanks to partnerships with creative developers some of the top luxury resorts and hotel groups are now offering their own custom apps for your smartphone. Let’s take a look at a few examples.

The luxurious, adults-only, Le Blanc Spa Resort is a real temptation for couples. Located in Cancun, it offers amazing comfort in a tropical paradise. In order to make your stay even more relaxing there is an app available for the iPhone and Android smartphones. You can use the app to organize your stay as it allows you to do everything, from ordering room service, to booking a tour, or making a restaurant reservation, all from your smartphone. There’s even the option to schedule wake-up calls or take advantage of luggage packing services.

Four Seasons Resorts Lanai App
If you’re taking a vacation adventure to Hawaii’s sixth largest island then you might consider staying in the Four Seasons ocean-side Manele Bay resort or the Lodge at Koele. Either way you’ll be able to take advantage of their Android and iPhone apps. You can use the apps to day dream about your trip and plan your activities before you arrive. Once there you’ll be able to make dinner and spa reservations, request a turndown service, or even get luggage assistance, all directly from your smartphone.
Hotel Chain Apps
You’ll find that the majority of big hotel chains also offer mobile apps. You can download apps for Hilton, Best Western, and Marriott hotels and resorts, amongst others. These apps allow you to browse through the hotels and book a stay. What they offer beyond that varies from app to app.
Hotel and resort apps are becoming more and more common so it’s always worth checking if your chosen destination offers one.
