Following the worldwide release of the Street View | Trusted, the See Inside Group are proud to announce the first official photo shoots for Dubai, United Emirates and Maldives as we continue to grow in new territories across the globe.
For our Google Street View Trusted Photographer, Dan Root, capturing resorts and hotels in foreign lands is certainly nothing new, with over 140 properties captured in 360 degree format over the past 18 months he’s the most well travelled shooter on the program having already worked with the likes of Hilton Worldwide, Jumeirah, Ritz-Carlton, Shangri-La and Atlantis to name but a few. Since the rebrand of Business View and it’s global launch we’re once again working with international brands as well as boutiques hotels to allow travellers to explore their properties before booking all via Google Search.
As the Search Engine quietly makes it’s moves into the Online Travel Agency market it’s more important than ever for the hospitality industry to optimise their Google My Business listing in Knowledge Graph. As part of that optimisation, hotels and resorts are finding that not only is our services invaluable to helping them gain visibility in local search but the immersive imagery we create is an invaluable tool to help would-be holiday-goers make a more informed decision in the booking process as to where they will stay and what level of room category.
Our recent work with Rixos, The Palm Dubai and Rixos, Bab Al Bahr in Ras Al Khaimah were the first hotel properties to be shot in each of the respective Emirates within the UAE, this follows the very first Street View | Trusted photo shoot for our offices at Caliber Interactive.
Three weeks (and 3 countries) later we followed our inaugural feat in another new territory, the Maldives. Working with Club Med we photographed their flagship property Finolhu Villas, an eco-friendly resort that has to be seen to be believed and with our photographic services, we’re allowing web users anywhere to explore this beautiful Maldivian island resort from their desktop or smart device.
Our work has been so well received that Club Med have created their own mini-site dedicated to showcasing Finolhu Villas where 360 degree photos and drone footage play a central role in marketing the property.
