Cancun's Dreams Natura resort is a delight for all guests. Peace, fun, sun and wellness. Its facilities on the Mexican East Coast have 553 rooms, 4 climatized pools, a private beach, a water park for the whole family… and much more. Live music, cooking and cocktail workshops, and 15 bars and restaurants.
Why it matters: During the high season, Dreams Natura used to print up to 1.000 paper sheets a day to thoroughly inform guests.
  • About 300.000 a year. That's a ton and a half of paper, if you leave ink and electricity out. But… It just so happens that they were able to save resources by knocking on STAY's door.

Top 3 Core Objectives: In December 2020, Dreams Natura began discussions concerning the implementation of STAY. This resort strives to ensure that its guests are well-informed about the services it offers. Before their arrival, as soon as the reservation is made. In addition, "we sought to be more environmentally friendly”.
  • Digitize its services: Dreams Natura wanted that their guests could interact with the staff while being able to do anything using their smartphones: Booking a table, a spa treatment or ordering room service, etc.

  • Implement live surveys: Dreams Nature aimed to gather instant feedback from users through surveys conducted through STAY. Their focus was on room service. "If something goes wrong, we must react in time."

  • Save tons of paper: In peak season, Dreams Nature used over 1000 sheets of paper each day. That was more than a ton of paper a year. With STAY, they no longer need paper.

"STAY lets our guests know what the resort offers beforehand. Interaction occurs through the app when they are in-house. It's all at their fingertips. And we save a ton of paper a year."
