Not a day goes by that we hear and read of the detrimental effects it had on industries across the globe, particularly in resort countries such as the Maldives. Now that the pandemic has begun to slowly ebb away, it is time to consider how the industry can recover and what new practices hotels and resorts should adopt going forward.
Adopt Cloud Technology
Remote working has become the most popular form of working as countries imposed strict movement regulations. The people-centric hospitality industry can use this trend to their advantage by remotely managing hotel processes as well as using this time to broadcast more content about places to see in Maldives for people at home with time on their hands.
Attract Millennial Travellers
Target the millennials first. Thanks to the virus having a less likely chance on younger bodies compared with millennials and generation z’s desire to explore they will be the ideal first tourists.
Use This Time for Maintenance and Renovation
Hotels in the Maldives such as Adaaran Maldives have taken this time to do maintenance checks and renovations. make sure your hotel is in good condition for guests when they start coming back.
Hotels can also use the restaurant to make deliveries to local areas using an online menu. This will help you stay relevant even if you are closed down.
Reconsider Health & Safety
