On October 6 PLPL announced its entry into a non-binding letter of intent with EV Hotel Corp., a Georgia corporation. EV Hotel™ developed the world’s first proprietary disruptive hospitality platform – the “smart hotel,” combining technology, automation, IoT, crypto and NFT with best-in-class service, stylish design, and upscale amenities to deliver a more efficient hotel operation, happier guests, and more streams of revenue.
EV Hotel™ revolutionizes how hotels operate by streamlining the guest experience, with thoughtful technologies that eliminate frustrating chokepoints across the guest journey, reimagining the hotel front desk with streamlined check in from its proprietary EV Smart™ app, automating hotel operations, providing upscale amenities, and building new revenue streams which provides a central control point over the guest experience including room controls, concierge, room service and more. The EV Smart™ app provides an all-in-one solution that provides for a seamless guest experience.
EV Hotel’s™ “IoT Smart Rooms” incorporates technologies allowing guests to relay requests directly into hotel service allowing hotel staff to see and respond in real-time, based on device-specific data, automatically providing alerts about problems reducing guest disruptions and out-of-service rooms and eliminating the need for preventative maintenance, saving both labor and equipment costs, all while providing significant energy savings.
EV Hotel™ operates a franchise model and it’s first franchisee is obtaining permits and converting a 63-year-old 114 room Travelodge into Phoenix, Arizona’s first ever smart hotel. It will be a new, cutting-edge hotel in a historically designated building. The design preserves the historic building and transforms it into the city’s first fully automated smart hotel with a hip pool that will mirror a trendy Miami style vibe.
EV Hotel™ also feature NFT (non-fungible token) artwork that is available for purchase in the hotel’s NFT Lobby and in its designer rooms, featuring one-of-a-kind NFT pieces for sale. Each guest owns their rewards via an NFT purchase, which allows them to sell their entire membership – with its rewards intact – to other travelers.
EV Hotel™ is the first hospitality brand with integrated cryptocurrencies, with a dedicated Crypto experience center and trading floor backed by CDX and a special Crypto ballroom.
The Parties are conducting due diligence with the intent to finalize a material definitive agreement outlining terms and conditions. Plandai expects its independent two-year audit to be finalized very soon and will form the basis for its operations going forward.
Commenting on the letter of intent, Mr. Ken Patel, Chairman and CEO of EV Hotels stated: “Great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people. Innovation is a team sport. We are excited to see the future of hospitality have an innovative mindset and EV Hotel is leading the revolution.”

With our sights now focused on completing our due diligence work with EV Hotel™, I am confident that we will finalize a transaction worthy of the commitment and confidence our shareholders have placed in the whole Plandai team.
