The holiday homes market has grown by 161 percent, according to a study by Knight Frank
During the launch event, the developer also unveiled “South Beach,” a residential beachfront development in Emaar Beachfront offering a blend of cosmopolitan living and serene seaside lifestyles. Comprising one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with exquisite furnishings, this will be the first waterfront development to be listed on Ease by Emaar.
“For guests, Ease by Emaar opens a new avenue for visitors to experience a premium lifestyle located in some of the most sought-after destinations in the city. Guests are provided with unrivaled hospitality such as hotel-grade housekeeping and amenities, and a digital mobile concierge, ensuring guests get all the information needed to experience the city, anytime, anywhere,” a press release said.
Other amenities offered to guests include unlimited Wi-Fi, a welcome pack, and on-demand Google Smart Home devices such as Chromecasts for streaming entertainment channels and others. Guests can also get an “Ease Pass,” which provides offers and deals to the city’s major attractions. This includes U by Emaar special upgrades, discounts on Emaar hospitality restaurants, and deals to Emaar entertainment attractions such as At The Top, Burj Khalifa, Reel Cinemas and others.
Residents of South Beach can also engage in watersports activities and various lifestyle amenities such as a swimming pool, fitness center and an extensive choice of play areas for children.
Investors in this development will have the option to let Ease by Emaar manage their property at no additional cost for the first three years post-completion.

Hyundai unveils new technologies to maintain clean air in vehicles

Hyundai unveils new technologies to maintain clean air in vehicles

Hyundai Motor Group has announced new technologies to improve the quality of air in vehicles and create a more pleasant indoor environment for customers.

Recognizing the growing concern about air quality, the group unveiled three new air-conditioning technologies — After-Blow, Multi-Air Mode, and Fine Dust Indicator. The technologies will be introduced initially on select models in Korea and expand to upcoming Hyundai vehicles worldwide in the future.

After-Blow

After-Blow dries the condensate on the evaporator and suppresses mold growth in the air-conditioning system, which can cause an odor during hot weather. After the engine is turned off and the condensate on the evaporator drains naturally for about 30 minutes, After-Blow activates for 10 minutes to dry the evaporator and any condensate leftover in the air passage. The air-conditioning system automatically allows influx of outside air during this time to prevent humidity from building up.

The technology uses an intelligent battery sensor (IBS) to monitor the battery and stops functioning when the battery is low, allaying any concerns about battery discharge.

Multi-Air Mode

Multi-Air Mode uses multiple vents for air conditioning and heating to create a more pleasant indoor environment with gentle wind. When this mode is activated, the air is dispersed to the newly added multi-air slots in the driver and passenger seats in addition to the normal air vents. The overall wind volume remains the same, but the dispersion of wind reduces direct air contact and softens the air. This mode can be switched on and off based on the preference of the driver.

Fine Dust Indicator

Fine Dust Indicator measures the air inside the vehicle in real time and delivers digitized information, allowing the driver to better manage the air quality. The indicator displays the concentration and pollution level of ultrafine particles (PM 2.5) inside the vehicle using integer numbers and colors for better visibility to the user. 

If the level of ultrafine particles exceeds 36 μg /m3 while the function is active, the air-cleaning mode will run to purify the air in the vehicle. The air-cleaning system automatically sets the air volume between 3 and 8 and switches to air-recirculation mode and activates the air conditioning system to reduce indoor humidity. If the air does not improve in air-cleaning mode, it can also serve as a reminder to the driver to replace air-conditioner filters or to clean contaminated seats and mats.
