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.
