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

Thailand, Phuket, Phuket. 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 Group Meetings: Spirit of Innovation


Naturally, the Hotel Group Meeting business has been rocked during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the effects may be felt for years to come. But according to planners, there is pent-up demand for hotels to resume this area of their business and savvy hoteliers are being exceptionally creative in making that possible. The key is successfully implementing all recommended safety guidelines. For example, in addition to social and physical distancing, some planners are utilizing assigned seating as a way to keep people from using multiple seats and tables throughout an event. Some planners have also initiated a color-coded bracelet system that indicates the wearer's confidence level about being physically approached. Hybrid meetings are also increasingly popular, where some attendees join in person and others are looped in virtually. Other hotels have instituted a "bubble" approach, dedicating an entire wing to smaller groups, essentially walling them off from any health risks outside their area. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to address these concerns so that the group meeting business can safely resume.
