JW Marriott Hotel & Resorts and DJI, the world’s leading drone-maker, has announced a special partnership, which has culminated in the luxury hotel’s first Drone Experience Program. The program will provide guests with the opportunity to experiment with DJI’s innovative drone technology. Hotel guests will view the beauty of JW Marriott’s properties through a new perspective, and will be able to capture and share these experiences with friends and family.
JW Marriott Zhejiang Anji launched the initiative on November 12, 2016 with DJI representatives hosting on-site experience sessions for hotel guests to demonstrate how to safely operate a drone and provide essential aerial photography tips. At present, the 30-minute experiential program will be held every Saturday from 10am – 4pm, and guest can reserve their spot in advance with the hotel concierge.
The Drone Experience Program will enable guests to capture an aerial overview of the hotel and destination by using a DJI drone with the help of a trained UAV pilot. Through the DJI Go app, they can easily share these moments on social media via live-stream to Facebook or YouTube. With its proximity to the legendary Anji Bamboo Forest, one of the most renowned natural wonders in China, JW Marriott Zhejiang Anji was selected as an ideal pilot hotel for the Drone Experience Program.
“Delivering an exceptional guest experience is at the heart of what we do at JW Marriott, and this exciting partnership with DJI allows us to continue transforming the way our guests capture their travel experiences,” said Mike Fulkerson, Vice President of Brand Marketing, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “Anji is a fantastic destination to pilot this cutting-edge technology and the program will help guests both learn something new and share their experiences with friends and family.”
