With the winter season in full swing, most hotels and resorts are starting to think about the spring and summer seasons, so that they can stay ahead of the competition. Whilst you may be planning a few upgrades before the high season, one of the best improvements you can make is to your outdoor furniture.
In fact, winter is the best time to start planning these updates, so that they can be in place before the high season begins. If you are not convinced that your alfresco furniture needs an upgrade, let’s take a look at six reasons why it’s worth considering it this year.
1. Outdoor furniture and facilities in a resort or hotel are important
The style of your alfresco spaces should reflect the needs of your guests, but they also need to take advantage of the favourable climate and particular setting of your resort or hotel. Many guests love to spend time outdoors, whether they are swimming in the pool, playing tennis, chatting with friends over coffee, or simply reading a book. To gain an edge on the competition, your establishment needs up-to-date outdoor furniture, as this tells your guests that you have their best interests as a priority.
2. Outdoor spaces and leisure activities lower stress and depression
Mental wellness is important to all of us because it can impact on our physical health. Research has shown that participating in recreational activities and spending time in green spaces can significantly improve our emotional well-being, lowering feelings of depression and our stress levels. Ensuring that your resort’s outdoor furniture is both welcoming and inviting, goes a long way to keeping your guests happy.
3. Green spaces improve the quality of our lives
Research has also shown that access to green spaces improves our quality of life, so creating natural outdoor ‘rooms’ where guests can relax close to nature can give your hotel a competitive edge. As importers of quality Italian outdoor furniture that is perfect for the needs of commercial properties, we can help you to select the best alfresco settings and furniture for your guests.
4. Guest expectations continually increase every year
Guest expectations continually increase with many expecting a luxury experience every time they visit a hotel or resort. For more modest establishments, however, these expectations can be a problem, but one area where you can exceed your guest’s expectations is with your outdoor furniture, which can give your guests the luxury they demand. With quality alfresco aluminium and wicker furniture suitable for the commercial market, we can customise your outdoor spaces, regardless of the size of your establishment.
5. Guest’s spend most their time in outdoor spaces
Whilst guests want a luxury feel to their accommodation, they actually spend most of their time outdoors. This means that your outdoor spaces need to be luxurious and inviting, and one of the easiest ways to achieve this is with high-quality outdoor furniture. It’s easy to spot a hotel or resort that has skimped on their outdoor spaces, mainly because their alfresco furniture is old and dated, a problem that can be easily remedied before the high season commences.
6. Escaping the heat and anticipating the demand for the upcoming summer!
The Australian summer can be very hot indeed and whilst many guests head to the air-conditioning for relief, many others like to head to the pool or to natural shady spots in the gardens. Upgrading your outdoor furniture in these areas shows your guests that you understand their needs and want them to have a luxury experience, whether they are staying at a large well-known resort or a smaller and more modest establishment.
