Strangely enough, the ubung was a lot more complex compared to the theories. As stated on the beginning of the brand identity, it greatest defines the actual Shangrila manufacturer is all about—embracing a traveller as its own, a traditional Asian brand of hospitality; and how this kind of giant motel name is definitely adhering to their particular image and brand notion. From this photo, they constructed a network of lodge chains all over the world, primarily in prime locations—mostly gateways and hubs. Using this brand graphic, emanate every one of the core principles, and the basis for their day-to-day operations. Franchising has been a great tool for the Shangrila Accommodations in creating their global market presence. They aim to provide the same standard of service and high-quality features such as health spas, resort establishments, gyms, bars and fine-dining, to every nation location, because of the brand anticipations and trust that it profits from consumers.
