Jurny Launches Global Expansion With Strategic Partnership in the Middle East

Next-Gen Tech Platform Locks in First International Location in Tel Aviv With Plans to Expand to the United Arab Emirates

USA, Los Angeles, California. September 30, 2020

Jurny, Inc., a leading hospitality tech company offering SaaS-based management solutions, today announced an agreement with I-Swift Ltd to operate a new apartment hotel in the center of Israel's cultural and commercial capital, Tel Aviv. Jurny will integrate its proprietary technology and management services to deliver a contactless guest experience and streamline operations, including booking services, cleaning management and customer support. The partnership closed during a historic time for Israel and the UAE, following an agreement set to unlock bilateral trade and billion-dollar investment between each of the countries.

Jurny offers a turnkey management solution for boutique hotels and multi-family building owners designed to transform rooms and units into fully furnished, completely automated, branded suites. Units are upgraded with smart home technology to enable a contactless, on-demand experience from check-in to check-out. The company's vertically integrated model is structured to reduce overhead, address redundancies and increase profits for stakeholders.

Located in the historic Tel Aviv district with access to both the Mediterranean Sea and the city's upscale offerings, the apartment hotel will combine Jurny's advanced technology and management solution with I-Swift's unique wellness offerings including a herbal garden, yoga lessons and other health and wellness-inspired services to develop a first of its kind retreat-like accommodations experience.

"Tel Aviv is one of the most innovative cities in the world, making it an ideal location to expand our global presence and further establish the Jurny brand," said David Phillips, co-founder and president of Jurny. "Jurny has seen record growth over the past year, and we are dedicated to creating a modern and unparalleled experience for travelers while fostering mutually beneficial relationships with our partners. This partnership signifies a major milestone as we work to introduce our world-class technology and services to new markets."

Jurny currently operates more than 370 units across seven markets with more than 2,500 additional units in the pipeline. In addition to Tel Aviv, the company recently signed agreements to operate new locations in major U.S. cities, including Lexington, Ky., Miami and Nashville.

"Jurny's innovative hospitality model has positioned the company for exponential international growth. We are looking forward to growing together in this partnership bringing both efficiency and soul to our property developments," said Naomi Zohar, co-founder and CEO of I-Swift Ltd. "The company has delivered proven results for partners by modernizing operations with its seamless technology solutions designed to accommodate remote check-in services, keyless entry, virtual concierge services and more. As we look to grow beyond Tel Aviv to the UAE, we envision Jurny as a long-term partner for our real estate portfolio."

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
