Chocolate Fountain Fantastic recycle old Grobak How to

Chocolate Fountain Fantastic recycle. Our buffet chocolate fountain looked good already but I wanted to push it a bit further and make it even more attractive for families that bring kids to weddings. I was looking for the WOW effect. As usual to boost my inspiration I always start by visiting the junkyard of the hotel , the place where you not only learn about its past but also how the people have been handling their old stuff. Tells a lot about them.

Something people really must know about luxury hospitality and that actually very few professional understand is the difference between quality of  expensive design settings and identity. Of course luxury settings are a must to ensure the top notch comfort however some of these places lack of warmth , a “je ne sais quoi is missing” it is the identity of the place and this cannot possibly come from any kind of corporate standard. It has to come from the people that will give a soul to the property. Keep in mind that guests are generally not socializing with things but as human being they mostly relate to other human beings. You mostly come back to a place because of its people of the work they perform with their heart , whether it is food or service or cleanliness.

As you can see below  our chocolate fountain already went thru some improvements with homemade marshmallow flower petals,macaroons etc… but I believed that it deserved something more like a pedestal to look really the part.

I litteraly found an old grobak (wooden food stall on wheels) in the junkyard at hotel basement.

What do you think really is the difference between a 4 star and a 5 stars hotel property and would you believe that a guest can feel very comfortable anywhere irrelevant of its luxurious looks.

You cannot imagine the marvels you can obtain when you got an artist like we did at Ciputra Hotel Jakarta and it is so unfortunate that nowadays 4 star properties don’t see anymore the need and the potential benefits of having in house artists, so sad .
