Bring the outdoors-in.

Bring the outdoors-in.

Influence your guests with the delight of nature.

Hotels can create enrapturing layouts by using inexpensive, naturally unique plant displays.

A hotel’s decor, ambience and architecture is enhanced increasingly from a plain space to a quaint and luxurious abode using plant installations; helping to transform both interior and exterior display aspects.

 

  1. WELCOME WITH DELIGHT – EXTERIOR

Introduce your guests to the beauty of nature as soon as they arrive. The plush greens and multitudes of colours add texture to the exterior, giving a more enticing invitation to onlookers and guests.

Plants, (especially flowers) make us happy. They even make most of us smile. So, why not make your guests smile with excitement when entering your hotel.

Decorative plant pots are a great way of adding artistic design into an area and a great way to keep living plants contained. The partnership of the luscious plant and the art feature-pot brings the whole piece to life.

Continue to revive your guests through their journey of the hotel. Continue to influence them with the calming nature of the indoor plants on display.

4. DESTINATION OF DREAMS – THE BEDROOM (ACCESSORIES)


Bring calm, joy and peace to your guests using accessories with a subtle hint of nature. Here are some examples of hotel bedrooms doing exactly this using natural colour tones through rugs, shades, throws, pillow cases, plants, furniture finishes, flooring, curtains, artwork.

 

Feature walls are a great way to present nature artistically. It’s a certain wow factor and really brings a boldness to a room or area. A must is to make sure the wallpaper isn’t too empowering on the room, that the artwork is tasteful as well as in taste with the room’s colour scheme.

5. A BALCONY


Not every hotel has a sea-view to greet guests, but with a balcony apartment you can create a comfortable and cosy garden.

Needs Of A Business Traveler

Needs Of A Business Traveler

Creating a pleasant and workable environment for business travelers, increases the potential for these hotel hoppers to return to your place of hospitality as-well-as gain a high probability of recommending your services to their networks. Hoteliers can succeed this by accommodating business travelers necessary requirements. These requirements are likely to be specific and differentiate with tourist requirements.

A business traveler who is able to work functionally, practically and in comfort is more likely to frequent a hotel as this decreases their stress of finding and booking another business-friendly hotel whilst assured of the ability to do productive work.

GET THE BALANCE RIGHT! Ensure you provide requirements for your business travelers that doesn’t impede on your tourist traveler essentials. Some needs are the same for both travelers ie…Clean, quiet rooms; polite staff, local taxi information etc.

 

Here are suggestions to making your business guests feel more productive and comfortable to perform work tasks.

  1. Tables and Chairs

This is a top priority for any business traveler. A workable-level table for a laptop and a practical (preferably an adjustable) chair to sit on.

  • In hand with this: ideally located plug sockets. These plug sockets should be located close to the table and if not – why not provide an extension cable in the room or note to them that an extension is available at reception.

2. Good lighting


  1. To keep your business guest alert and awake, a well-lit room (or at least a well-lit work space) helps prevent the urge to chillout in the cosy hotel room and acts as a good start to a productive day. Ensure you have the choice of mood lighting and full spectrum lighting ie dimmer lighting or lamps.

3. A well insulated room


For business travelers – a quiet space is a must! The quieter the better. If not all your hotel rooms are well insulated to protect from noise interruption, then do consider that the few rooms you have insulated well – should be prioritised for guests that are on business.

However, for any hotel – it is recommended to have all rooms well insulated, as no customer wants to be disturbed by noise.

4. Good internet access


 

A business guest most certainly needs internet access to work freely. Again, if not available in your hotel. Do prepare a suggestion to a local cafe/area with wifi.

Free wireless broadband access is most preferable due to it’s flexibility for a business traveler to move around.

5. Good Coffee


Business travelers are expected to be the highest number of guests to consume coffee. Travelers from around the globe are becoming more experienced and more demanding for coffee to stimulate individual work flow – and instant coffee won’t cut it for most. If you have a service for great, quality coffee, you will be their best friends. If you do not, ensure you can kindly offer a local cafe alternative that will cater for them.
