What Luxury Hotel Stays Will Be Like After Coronavirus, From Check-in to Check-out
How sprawling luxury resorts are primed to lead the way into post-pandemic reopening.
As hotels cautiously reopen for the summer travel season, health and safety concerns are top of mind. Gifted with acres upon acres of land, sprawling luxury resorts — from wilderness retreats to private islands — provide plenty of space to feel comfortable without being crowded. And it's these properties that are in an optimal position to lead the way.
In May, the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) launched its Safe Stay guidelines, developed with input from hotels, public health experts, and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These guidelines are being adopted as the baseline health and cleaning requirements at thousands of hotels, with many determined to go beyond the recommendations.
Additionally, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced a new partnership with Johns Hopkins Medicine International to develop Lead With Care, an enhanced health and safety program for its properties. And Montage International has partnered with One Medical, a leading national digital health and primary care organization, to provide virtual care services to hotel associates and guests.
