Monaco's Hospitality Industry Re-Opens

Monaco, Principality of Monaco. June 18, 2020

The Principality of Monaco has gradually started to re-open in compliance with health and safety measures imposed by the Government of Monaco. We look forward to travel restrictions being lifted for North American travelers so we can welcome you all again to Monaco - a cosmopolitan nation with 139 nationalities that make the world's second-smallest country diverse, inclusive, and welcoming. Until then, stay safe, healthy, and hopeful.

After two months of lockdown, health prevention policies implemented by the authorities of the Principality of Monaco have allowed a gradual recovery of economic and tourism activities since the beginning of May.

Step by step, many sectors are reviving their activities in close cooperation with professional and economic stakeholders as well as in strict compliance with safety measures against the pandemic.

Since June 2, 2020, museums, bars and restaurants have started to re-open - a few days after retail stores - as part of a vast recovery plan. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the Government of Monaco has always prioritized health safety and has done everything possible to protect residents, day-trippers and tourists alike - successfully limiting the impact of the pandemic.

Monaco's hotels are united towards one objective: to welcome guests in the best possible conditions with health and safety as a top priority.

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.
