VDA’S GRMS installed in the ME Dubai Opus by Zaha Hadid

The hotel chain Melia chose VDA Group’s GRMS for their smart rooms in one of the most avant-garde hotels of the world.

A year has already passed since technology from the VDA Group, a company operating in the field of home automation for the hospitality sector, with offices in Italy (HQ), Great Britain, UAE and APAC, was installed in the ME Dubai Opus by Zaha Hadid, one of the most futuristic hotels in the world located in the Burj Khalifa district. Ambassador to the international brand "Made in Italy", VDA is a multinational company, present with its technology in Dubai, for almost 20 years.

ME Dubai Opus by Zaha Hadid, with its futuristic architecture, with two towers joined at the base and summit, but separated in the middle by an irregular vacuum, makes available to its guests within the 93 smart rooms, a distributed intelligence GRMS system. Micromaster, VDA’s Room Management System, allows for easy and efficient room environment management and ensures substantial savings in both energy and operating costs within the hotel, whilst providing their guests with an experiential stay.

"With ME Dubai Opus by Zaha Hadid we share the same focus on innovation and the desire to rewrite the concept of hospitality. We are pleased that the value of our technology is recognized and that the IOT is perceived as a valuable asset", says Piercarlo Gramaglia, CEO of VDA Group. "ME Dubai Opus by Zaha Hadid is one of the Significant Destinations that make the guest’s stay unforgettable and is one of the most important projects realized by VDA in the last 10 years."

"Living an experience that can combine comfort with the latest available technologies, is for us an important priority within the brand ME by Melia.", says Francesco Costa, Aura Manager of ME Dubai Opus by Zaha Hadid. "Today the guest in the hotel is definitely much more demanding and is very attentive to many aspects that until yesterday were considered superfluous. Good technology allows us to take advantage of its benefits in a natural way, without forcing us to make any effort. Technology is for us a silent ally in the guest’s stay experience".
