Outrigger Hospitality Group Announces 'Outrigger's Clean Commitment' Developed With Ecolab

Outrigger Introduces New Cleanliness Protocols and Technology for Property Re-Openings in Response to Covid-19

USA, Honolulu, Hawaii. June 02, 2020

Outrigger Hospitality Group today announced its commitment to providing an elevated standard of cleanliness and safety in preparation for the anticipated re-opening of its beach resort properties.

Outrigger's Clean Commitment guidelines were designed in consultation with healthcare leaders and developed with Ecolab - the global leader in hospitality cleaning, sanitising programmes and solutions. It also meets the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) ‘Stay Safe' enhanced industry-wide hotel cleaning standards.

The global platform incorporates state-of-the-art technology, cleaning products and procedures in compliance with the latest COVID-19 codes, regulations and brand standards. The programme applies to all areas of Outrigger operations, including: host training, social and physical distancing, surface cleaning and disinfecting, general housekeeping, maintenance and overall host and guest health.

"Outrigger has always prioritized a rigorous cleaning protocol to help ensure the wellbeing of our guests and hosts; working closely with our longtime partner Ecolab, Outrigger's Clean Commitment delivers enhanced and consistent sanitation standards across all of our properties," said Jeff Wagoner President and CEO of Outrigger Hospitality Group.

"For more than 70 years, Outrigger has offered an oasis for guests around the globe - when the time is right, we look forward to safely welcoming them back to our island homes."

Chip Rogers, President and CEO of AHLA said: "While hotels have always employed demanding cleaning standards, this new initiative will ensure greater transparency and confidence throughout the entire hotel experience."

He added: "The industry's enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols will continue to evolve to meet the new health and safety challenges and expectations presented by COVID-19."

Outrigger's Clean Commitment is rooted in The Outrigger Way - the guiding ethos that captures Outrigger's tradition of hospitality and mutual respect for host, guest and place.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
