indoor location-based solution for resorts

One-dimensional apps, pamphlets and information desks typically all lead to one common problem – guest frustration. Luckily, Mapsted has the ideal indoor location-based solutions for resorts. Of course, guest satisfaction is one of the primary concerns for resort managers and incorporating location-based technology solutions not only improves guest satisfaction and operational efficiency but also positions resorts as forward-thinking and customer-centric establishments. It’s essential for resorts to choose the right technology partner to ensure a seamless integration of these solutions to reap the full benefits they offer.

The Frustration of Generic Indoor Navigation Solutions

Resorts may have their own apps, but these tend to offer guests only a few generic services. What these apps are missing is a highly personalize platform catering specifically to each guest.

Pamphlets and flyers have been the main method of keeping guests up to date with the latest amenities and events. But people often experience frustration when they have to carry around their smartphone and a random paper.

But let’s face it, carrying all that around is still better than trying to remember 20 directions and the times of the five different you’d like to attend. This is definitely not the relaxing experience guests are looking for during their stays. So, this may be the reason people say they need a vacation after they come back from their vacation.

Resorts should be a place where guests come to relax and unwind, not stress about travel fomo or getting lost on the property.

A New Way to Vacation


Mapsted is the world leader in indoor navigation technology. And unlike the existing competition in the resort industry, Mapsted’s indoor location-based solutions help to find ways to overcome the fear of missing out on vacation. Guests can easily navigate around the resort using only their smartphones. 

From welcome messages when they arrive, to the chance to send feedback and suggestions when they leave, make the experience all about the customer, ensuring they don’t feel left out, and they receive a highly personalized stay.

With location-based triggers, guests instantly receive push notifications letting them know about nearby excursions or events, so they never miss that fitness class they wanted to take or the special evening show in the theatre. In addition, when a guest receives this notification, they are given the option of being guided right to the event, via the indoor GPS option, ensuring a worry-free enjoyable experience.

With this technology, guests don’t have to rely on a piece of paper or the resort information desk to stay up to date with the latest events happening around the resort. 

Next Generation Personalized Customer Experiences


Based on feedback from guests, and advanced analytics, Mapsted is able to help resorts accelerate, improve and increase operational efficiency. Mapsted is able to determine which resort areas get the most attention, so resorts can optimize the areas that don’t get enough traffic and direct guests to the new and improved attractions. 

Resorts should value the experience of their guests above anything else. By using Mapsted’s advanced indoor location-based technology, resorts can give their guests access to everything they need right in the palms of their hands: from stress-free and effortless navigation to personalized messages, and updates on all the important events taking place around the resort.

Navigating around a large resort complex can be frustrating, especially for first-time guests. Mapsted’s next-generation indoor location-based services enable resorts to provide effortless navigation to all their amenities, send guests personalized messages to make sure they don’t experience vacation fomo, and receive timely feedback to take their guest services to the next level.
