WATCH: A weird and wonderful weekend in a hotel room that sings to you
Sit back, relax, and let your smart speaker called 'Echo' take care of things.
theLAB Guesthouse offers guests solar-powered and eco-conscious luxury stays in three stunning Western Cape destinations: on the Franschhoek and Robertson wine routes, as well as in Hout Bay, close to the Constantia wine route and ocean.
All are focused on reducing human carbon-footprint and intervention, as rooms are almost fully automated.
"Echo make me coffee."
"Echo close the blinds."
These are all requests you can give your in-room system; and her wish will be your command. Most of the time. There are some glitches at times, but that's just tech for you.
Electric car? There's a charging station. Water is recycled and single-use plastic eliminated, and every inch of every roof is lined with solar-panels. Food is not a bit issue at theLAB. Expect healthy, light meals, but going out and exploring the surrounding areas is encouraged.
Go escape into the weird high-tech meets eco-luxe world that theLAB has created. Indulge and give into the weird, until it's wonderful.
