Named Aura, 'she' was introduced in December due to to the Singapore hotel industry suffering from a manpower shortage.

On their website they state that "Aura helps to optimise operations, boost productivity and lift guest experiences to a new level."

And that it does, with guests allowed to give Aura orders.

Developed by robot manufacturer Savioke, she is the first robot outside of the USA who works alongside people in busy environments.

According to their CEO, Steve Cousins, “You put something in Aura, tell her where to go, and she will go there to deliver it, and then return to her docking station by herself.

“AURA, can operate and ride in elevators, navigate her way to a guest’s door, let them know that a delivery has arrived (guest phone rings), and then open its lid for guests when they answer the door,” he said.

This seems like just the beginning for the robot in hotels, with guests overjoyed with Aura's presence.
