Live Like a Maharaja on Airbnb

Live Like a Maharaja on Airbnb

Jaipur’s Royal Family becomes Airbnb’s first Royal Hosts, listing their family home, the City Palace of Jaipur on Airbnb

The 300 year old City Palace of Jaipur, home to Jaipur’s Royal Family, has played host to numerous guests over the centuries. From November 23, 2019, the Gudliya Suite at the City Palace will become accessible to outside guests, and will be able to be booked for the first time ever on Airbnb, with His Highness Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh becoming the first Maharaja to offer a stay at his palace on Airbnb, in order to help support the women’s empowerment initiatives of the Princess Diya Kumari Foundation.

Steeped in history, and located in the heart of Jaipur, capital of the Indian state of Rajasthan, the City Palace is one of India’s most iconic buildings. Guests will be able to book and stay in the luxurious Gudliya Suite, located within one of the private sections of a royal palace that, until now, has been used for the royals and their special guests. The Suite includes its own lounge, kitchen, luxurious bathroom and private, indoor swimming pool.

Guests will truly get to experience what it’s like to live like royalty.  A practical and down-to-earth modern Royal, the host is the dapper, polo-playing 21-year old Maharajah, Padmanabh Singh, who succeeded his grandfather in 2011 as the Maharaja of a land his ancestors have ruled for nearly a thousand years. 

Built in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of the city of Jaipur, the City Palace exemplifies the best of 18th century Rajput architecture with and other architectural influences of later periods. The interiors contain ornate chambers, large and airy reception halls, crystal chandeliers, gilded wall decorations, intricate carvings and in addition to the royal residence, the sprawling palace complex houses a large, internationally recognised museum. Notable visiting dignitaries have included Bill Clinton, Prince Charles and Jackie Kennedy, among others. 

Guests of the Gudliya Suite at the City Palace will be provided an inspiring journey into the rich history, cultural heritage and artistic traditions of Jaipur’s royal family. Guests will be looked after by a private butler and guide who will arrange curated city experiences including shopping tours, guided walks through local museums and other excursions.  Authentic Rajasthani meals may be enjoyed on a terrace offering an amazing view of the surrounding Aravalli hills and forts overlooking the palace, and peaceful afternoon tea can be had in the company of the resident peacocks who live in the Palace’s lush gardens.

“I am thrilled that my family and I are partnering with Airbnb to bring the splendour of Rajasthan to life for travelers from around the world. My own travels with Airbnb have made me feel very welcome in new cities and cultures, and I am happy that the experience of quintessential Indian hospitality will be shared with others.” stated His Highness Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh.

The Palace has never been available to be booked by outside guests before. Proceeds from each booking will go to the Princess Diya Kumari Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting rural women and artisans in Rajasthan.  For the remainder of 2019, the Gudliya Suite, priced at $8,000 per night, will be available to book on select nights at a special inaugural offer of $1,000 USD per night, with Airbnb paying the balance amount for each booking as a contribution to the Foundation. From January 1st onwards, the Suite will be available for guests to book at the full $8,000 USD rate.

The Gudliya Suite will be available for stays starting November 23. To make a booking, guests can visit airbnb.com/CityPalaceJaipur as of now.

Behind the Scenes of Resorts World Genting’s Train to Busan Horror House

Behind the Scenes of Resorts World Genting’s Train to Busan Horror House

 Resorts World Genting and Producers Vividthree reveal how the experience was created

The Train To Busan Horror House experience at Resorts World Genting is about to open its doors to fans of the movie and fans of scare experiences in Malaysia and the region. The first-of-its-kind in the world, the Horror House launches on 31st October 2019, bringing the world of the blockbuster Korean movie to life in a unique and thrilling way. 

This event is being brought by Resorts World Genting and AirAsia as co-presenter.

“This isn’t the first Halloween spectacular that we’ve created at Resorts World Genting, but I believe it is certainly the best,” says Roger Ong, Assistant Vice President of Entertainment and Events for Resorts World Genting. “As the leader of entertainment experiences in Malaysia and the region, we have always tried to push the boundaries of what we can offer our customers. Which is why we have chosen Train To Busan, since something familiar and recognisable for our audience, and which is why we have chosen to work with Vividthree, a market-leading producer to bring the blockbuster movie to life. We are thankful that Vividthree immediately signed on to this project to realize this fantastic frightening Horror House.”

A collaboration with Vividthree, a digital content production powerhouse from Singapore, the Train to Busan Horror House experience is a superlative result of what location-based entertainment technology can achieve. Drawing from Vividthree’s feature film experience – which include the Singaporean box-office hit trilogy Ah Boys To Men and the Hollywood animated movie Robotropolis – Vividthree has managed to create a compelling horror experience that it considers its crown jewel. How was it made? The production team from Vividthree takes us behind the scenes and show how the magic of the Horror House is created. 

Behind the Scenes: Partnering with the Train to Busan IP owner, South Korea’s Content Panda, the Horror House experience utilizes the latest in digital and virtual reality technology to create a scary experience that has to be experienced to be believed. No expense was spared in the creation of the Horror House, which is faithful to the movie and also expands on its plotline.

The team at Vividthree first began by watching the movie – which is one of the highest-grossing South Korean movies ever – over and over, identifying areas and scenes that were suitable to expanded and translated into a physical experience. This, according to Vividthree, was a huge challenge as the team wanted to be faithful to the motivations of the characters but also allow for the new possibilities.

“We asked ourselves: what we would do if we were one of those ordinary, everyday Koreans that somehow got caught up in a zombie apocalypse? What would have happened if we made a different choice in those scenarios, compared to what was done by the movie’s characters,” says Jed Mok, Chief Executive Officer for Vividthree. “It was really fun to brainstorm over what could be done and how we could expand the universe. But it was also a huge challenge, as working with a successful IP like Train to Busan is a daunting task, not least because there are so many fans around the world that love the movie.”

The team settled on setting the Horror House in the 48 hours that ensue after the finale of the movie, asking the questions: what else was happening in Seoul, Daejeong and Busan, and what could have happened to the remaining survivors? Using hints left by the director in the movie, over 50 concepts were refined into the final product, brought to life through a mixture of live actors, digital technology, brand new videos and immersive soundscapes. Through close consultation with Content Panda, the universe of the movie has been dramatically and faithfully expanded; fans of the movie can expect to spot many Train To Busan original movie experience, while still offering a frightful time for those unfamiliar with the film.

“The Train to Busan Horror House experience is broken up into several parts, each with a unique offering inspired by the movie,” explained Roger. “When visitors first set foot into the experience, they will teleported to a busy, neon-lit street in Seoul, where some of the best Korean street food will be available. After buying a train ticket, they will then enter into a ravaged train station, centred on a wrecked train that crashes through the second level of the station, pining innocent passengers and hungry zombies under the rubble. The visitors will then get to walk through two Horror Houses. The first is made up of retail shops in the ruined Daejeong Train Station, and the second is in the abandoned train itself. But beware, you won’t be alone! After the Horror Houses, visitors can then move to the Base Camp area to engage in action-packed activities either as a survivor or zombie. Every different zone offers a different level of fun and scares, and each one will be fantastic in its own way.”

Creating the Horror House: The Horror House will be heightened with a cast of 50 actors and scare point operators, who were meticulously selected for necessary physical attributes and acting skills. Working in shifts, the acting cast – who are all Malaysian – will play the role of zombies and survivors in shifts, bringing the storyline crafted by Vividthree to life. The attention to detail going into the cast and costuming is immense; lead by an award-winning Malaysian artiste, the makeup for individual actor takes up to 2 hours to complete, while the costumes have been styled specifically to be recognisable to fans of the movie.

The preparation for the Train to Busan Horror House took months to complete, covering art direction, set design, prop theming and technical considerations that bring the world to life. Each aspect of the experience came with its own challenges, and the team at Vividthree has been careful to accurately capture the atmosphere of the movie, using custom audio soundscapes and video assets to heighten realism. The haunting mirror maze, for example, draws inspiration from the 2008 movie Mirrors and the final fight sequence of Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, creating a disorienting room full of broken reflective surfaces and creepy mannequins. The VR zombie shooting game – available at the Base Camp area – takes things further by allowing guests to take on the role of Korean army soldiers, defending the Busan quarantine zone from an army of ravenous zombies as seen in the finale of the movie.

“I’m astounded by the amount of detail and attention that has been poured into the Train to Busan Horror House. This is the result when Resorts World Genting works with the best and brightest in the industry,” says Roger Ong. “It’s been a fascinating journey, seeing how this experience has evolved from inspiration to concept to storyboard to the actual Horror House. We are incredibly pleased to open our doors and invite you inside to become part of the movie. The Train to Busan Horror House checks all the boxes of what we strive to achieve at Resorts World Genting – it is unique, it is cutting-edge, and it showcases how we are using Virtual Reality to push the envelope of entertainment. We also see this as an opportunity to promote South Korea itself, by working with brands to bring the true soul of Seoul into the experience. I am confident that we have achieved our goal of scaring the pants off our guests. And I promise that this is the beginning of great things as we aim to create even more dynamic experiences in the years to come.”

The Train To Busan Horror House experience will be accepting passengers from 31 October 2019 to 1 January 2020, running from 12 noon to 10pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 1 November to 1 December 2019, and daily from 2 December 2019 to 1 January 2020. The Streets of Seoul runs from 10 am to 10 pm over the same time period. Tickets to the Horror House are priced at RM90 for regular admission (RM80 for Genting Rewards Club members). A combo Horror House single admission and Skytropolis Preview Pass is available at RM128, and guests looking at skip the queue can opt for an additional Express Pass at RM30.
