Most large hotel chains have implemented their own stringent cleaning protocols, Airbnb released new COVID clean measures and now members of booking site, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) have started promoting their new initiative, ‘Stay Small, Stay Safe’.Their initiative provides and promotes enhanced health and detailed safety guidelines for all 520 member hotels in 90 countries with several Australian hotels including Halcyon House, Cabarita Beach, New South Wales, Ovolo fortitude Valley, Brisbane and Ovolo Woolloomooloo Sydney, Australia.
Jean-Francois Ferret, CEO at Small Luxury Hotels of the World says: “Travellers are yearning for a change of scenery and have already begun to cautiously book their next adventure, and with these new measures, SLH can confidently reassure each guest of a worry-free stay.
The ability to be flexible and adapt is crucial at this time, and our intimate member hotels can do so in a thorough and bespoke way.
SLH believes post-COVID travellers feel more comfortable staying in small and safe hotel and nearly 230 of its member hotels say they have now re-opened.
According to a recent survey of guests that it conducted, more than 90 percent of travellers said they would feel more comfortable staying in a small independent hotel.
The ‘Stay Small, Stay Safe’ initiative acknowledges the desire for intimate hotel experiences with fewer crowds that travellers are seeking. With just 50 rooms on average, SLH properties are able to offer secluded, discrete options with the highest safety standards.
