The Bania Hotel and Ski Resort in the south of Poland offers an exceptional experience and level of luxury to guests, whether they’re looking to rest and relax in the spa or find adventure on the slopes.
Hotel Bania wanted to give customers a fully immersive digital experience that would present them with the beauty of the hotel, along with a detailed view of the facilities available. With the power of a Matterport digital twin, they’ve achieved exactly that: a full 3D virtual dollhouse that guests can navigate through and see every square foot of the hotel and spa.
We asked Tomasz Rzadkosz, Hotel Bania event manager, more about the project and what he thinks about the Matterport digital twin of the hotel.
What inspired the 3D capture of this space?
We wanted to give our guests a chance to see all of the hotel before they arrived. The unique dollhouse view we achieved with the Matterport digital twin is far more detailed than a series of photographs. We were also keen to use some of the nice and practical add-ons, like tags and YouTube linking to make it fully immersive for customers.
What are the “must-sees” you want visitors to explore and why?
The Sielsko Anielsko Wellness & SPA is so cozy, with an old wood-finished interior. It’s really impressive. Also, the Kawiarnia na Szczycie restaurant, which has a highland carpenter craftsmanship aesthetic with a modern twist. And we mustn’t forget the Apartament Premier — a great example of the most beautiful rooms in the hotel.
What’s the one thing you want visitors to take away after exploring your 3D tour?
The finer details, for sure. The attention to detail that has gone into the creation of the hotel is something that we are very proud of and we want guests to be able to see the care that has gone into it when they move through the digital twin. The use of natural materials like wood and stone is something that I think really comes through when you’re immersed in the hotel.
What are the benefits of Matterport digital twins?
It’s such an intuitive and interactive experience, I think it can draw people in and give them a sense of what it’s really like to be there.
Do you have any plans to capture more 3D experiences?
After any expansions of the facility — maybe!
