Customer challenge

 

Hotel Botanico is setting a new benchmark for the luxury hotel industry. Belonging to the ‘Leading Hotels of the World’ chain, it has continuously improved its services ever since opening in 1974. Seeking to reduce operational costs, the hotel looked to lighting for an answer.

The right lighting 

 

The light renovation would involve fitting new bulbs in 6,000 light points across the hotel. This would cover rooms, corridors, meeting rooms, and other public places. Before the upgrade, the hotel was lit exclusively with 50w dichroic halogen lights, which required a high level of maintenance and used excessive electricity. This clashed with the hotel’s objective to provide the best facilities and services with minimum environmental impact.

 

With this in mind, LED hospitality lighting was brought in. To maintain the existing illumination levels of the hotel and preserve the unique atmosphere and aesthetics, MASTER LED spot bulbs were chosen. These LED bulbs fill the area with a warm and welcoming light, and can also be dimmed for different mood settings.

 

The upgrade was a complete success. Energy consumption has been reduced by more than 85% for each replaced light fitting. In addition, the new hospitality lighting has almost zero maintenance requirements, with an operating life of 40,000 hours (compared with 2,000 hours for the previous bulbs). This long life reduces disruptions in the hotel, and preserves the hotel ambience as there are no longer any blown-out bulbs.

 

The new LED spotlights produce significantly less heat than their halogen counterparts. As a result, temperature in the rooms has been reduced by two to three degrees. Consequently, Hotel Botanico now spends less on air conditioning.
