Information and highlights of the dining services and facilities of the hotel, including billing, will also be available within a fingertip on the user-friendly remote control and will be on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad in the future.

To support the Unified Communications (UC) concept through IPTV and IP Phone systems, the building is also cleverly engineered with the installation of a “Fiber Optic Backbone” to ensure bandwidth efficient delivery of internet connection and high quality of telephone signal, allowing business and leisure travelers to connect with business and friend with high levels of performance and reliability.

Moreover, Sivatel is designed to be environmental-friendly with the “VRF — Variable Refrigerant Flow System” and an automatic electricity-controlled system. The”RFID – Radio Frequency Identification card” and “IP CCTV or IP-based Closed Circuit TV” systems are installed to offer convenience, and at the same time, security of hotel and residence guests and office tenants and visitors.

Sivatel’s General Manager, Mr Apichan Sivayathorn, said that “Sivatel Tower is designed to answer the calls for modern lifestyle amid concerns over the environment and the safety and security from corporate business and leisure travelers.”
