Riu Concordia, a hotel chain on Spanish holiday island Mallorca, has been chosen to greet some of the 11k German tourists heading to the island as part of a pilot program to test Covid-19 precautions at hotels.
RIU Hotels have invested in many new protocols in the hopes of opening back up along with the rest of Spain’s economy.
The lobby will employ thermal camera scans of guests as the walk-in to catch guests who may have a fever. If a guest signals the system, the hotel receives a discrete alert.
At meals cutlery is safety sealed and guests are asked by numerous signage to remain two meters apart. Like much retail in the U.S. the hotel is also using directional arrows to control the flow of foot traffic. The attendants offer guests numerous opportunities for hand sanitizer use.
Guests will notice that cleaning staff are numerous and working around the clock to disinfect common areas.
Some guests will enjoy that limitations on the number of guests allowed at the pool or the beach. Unfortunately, the bars and clubs will be closed until further notice.
Riu Concordia, like Las Vegas, is one vacation destination experimenting with guest willing to leave home on how to safely offer vacation services to the willing.
