Talk about treating your guest right! Even if they have to pay a big price (undoubtedly) for it, it is the thought that counts. Waldorf Astoria has partnered with Lamborghini to produce a package that is going to win plenty of brownie points from its clientele – to drive around in some of the rarest supercars on the planet – including the Huracán LP 580-2 and the Huracán LP 610-4 Spyder.
This is part of the Warldorf Astoria Driving experience, which the hotel group began in 2014. For the 2016 – 2017 program, guests can test drive the Lamborghini models at 12 of the hotel’s properties worldwide. During the 30-minute drive, guests can enjoy the views and scenes of the landscapes neighbouring their chosen property. But, they wouldn’t be doing this alone though. They will be accompanied by Lamborghini’s professional Italian drivers during these outings. Else, can you imagine the trauma in case of a mishap?
Once back from these real sessions, guests can also enjoy a virtual tour of these touristic scenes from other Warldorf Astoria cities through 3-D simulation using Gear VR Oculus goggles. It is hard to understand the “experience” in something like this, though.
The first of the driving experience was held last week in Park City, Utah in the US, during the 12th Annual Park City food & Wine Classic. Next will be at Warldorf Astoria New York from September 8-11 during the US Open; which also means guests could probably drive up to the twin towers, and pay their respects too. That would be nice. Then at Paris in October, Fort Lauderdale and Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah early November and finally at UAE’s Ras Al Khaimah late November. It will also reach the hotel’s properties in Rome and Beijing.
