Leela Palaces and Resorts in partnership with Bureau Veritas India
One of the most reputed hospitality chains, Leela Palaces and Resorts has announced that they have decided to launch a new program known as Suraksha which is only aimed at elevating and promoting the sanitization procedures in partnership with Bureau Veritas India. The Hotel chain is all set to be on the draconian side of providing their guests and the staff the stringent measures to ensure their safety post-covid era. Not only this, they have succeeded in introducing a bunch of health, hygiene, and safety measures under the SURAKSHA program and you will be able to enjoy the best out of it only after the post-covid era.
Some of the measures which they have pledges to take are listed below:
- The use of protective gear and masks will eventually be made mandatory after and post-covid era.
- Gloves while doing any work in every department especially the guest areas will be counted as well post-covid era.
- PPE Kits for all its associate
- Regular temperature checks
- Alarms to remind the staff to sanitize their hands regularly would be foremost on the list post-covid era.
- A frequent cleaning as per the state’s guidelines
- Sanitization of all surfaces across public areas at regular intervals
- Rigorous deep cleaning of the guest room areas with the application of disinfectants would indeed be mandatory post-covid era.
- Cleaning of high-touch points such as doors, handles, tabletops, elevator buttons, railings, etc.
- Deep cleaning of cars with the concierge team.
These measures are strictly looked at by the Hygiene managers to ensure that every protocol is followed by every person on the premises, not just in the post-covid era but always. Safety and precaution cannot be denied anymore.
Check-Ins and Check-Outs post-covid era
The Team has decided to work effectively so that each protocol is followed thoroughly post-covid era and always. Every team member is seen wearing gloves and masks, sanitizers are placed on each corner of the reception desk, a bunch of masks are there in case if one forgets to wear the same in the lobby, separate key returning boxes are placed so that no one comes in direct contact of anyone, pens and keys are sanitized on daily basis. Furthermore, contactless check-ins and check-outs will be soon under the process where the payments will directly be via phones. Soon the chains are expected to have their online platform where a guest can web check-in himself at the provided check-in time.
To maintain social distancing, there are signs made for each person to assist them on how far they should stand from another person. This is something we are still doing and would be post-covid era. To keep social distancing in mind, the hotel plans to redo its restaurant seating arrangement by providing an e-menu that is digital where it can directly be seen on the respective phones. This can be done with the help of bar codes, or the designed hotel’s link.
Washing of all dishes at 80-degrees Celsius and hygiene training for all the teams are some of the additional measures the hotel chain will be following for the safety of guests shortly. Also, instead of newspapers, digital news and e-papers will be part of the upcoming process. To recover from Covid damage, the top hotel chains are going on safety and hygiene overdrive.
They have started their online channels where they deliver the best quality food of their respective brands. From offering to do your laundry to getting their famed signature dishes at your doorstep through the assistance of platforms like Zomato and Swiggy, the chains are trying hard to deliver the best according to the brands.
With a surprising test, the pandemic has gone up against the accommodation industry. For example, network lockdowns, social isolation, stay-at-home demands, travel, and portability restrictions have resulted in the transitory conclusion of several local groups and completely diminished the interest of organizations that we’re able to continue operating. Nearly all restaurants were approached to restrict their operations and only limit their activities.
As an office that directly serves the accommodation industry, we operate more tirelessly than at any other time to remain above water, restrictions imposed on movement and stay-at-home requests provided by the specialists led to a drastic decrease in accommodation inhabitants
and revenues that affect private companies. Basically, it’s the most catastrophic emergency that has ever affected the room for movement and accommodation. All things considered, I have never been so confident to this extent. This too shall pass!
