During this time of year, the hospitality industry is always overwhelmed with “unveiling stories” of multi-million-dollar upgrades to properties around the globe.  But resort renovations don’t need to be expensive to be impactful.

Whether you’re looking for relatively quick ways to update your resort before the summer crowds arrive or you want to explore ideas for differentiating your property on a budget, here are some powerful yet cost-effective ideas for updating your hotel and resort this spring.

Pool and/or Beach Upgrades – Resort Renovations Tip #1

Your pool or beach amenities can make a big impression on your guests and their experience on the property.  On the simplest side, assess the services accessible to guests while relaxing by the water.  From fresh towels being provided by a smiling face to tropical cocktails that set the mood, there are very easy ways to improve the guest experience – starting right now.

But don’t stop there.

Pool and beach cabanas add an unforgettable sense of luxury to the outdoor space while empowering your staff with opportunities to upsell guests at check-in.  Similarly, outdoor bars not only generate income for your resort – but they also create a festive atmosphere that helps to keep more guests satisfied with lounging by the pool all day.

Comfortable Restaurant Patios & Outdoor Seating – Resort Renovations Tip #2

Your resort dining options play an important role in your overall profitability, so enticing guests to stay on the property for their meals is key.  When conceptualizing your resort renovations, you should look at ways to upgrade restaurant patios and other outdoor seating areas.  After all, your guests need to eat, so why provide them with the ideal balance between convenience, delicious food, and an open-air experience.

Depending on the setting, there are many options for making your patios more comfortable and stylish.  In some circumstances, commercial-grade cabanas are ideal for creating an intimate, private setting.  Other patios would benefit more from retractable fabric roof structures.  Regardless of which fits better with your needs, adding top-quality shade solutions improves guest comfort, expands usability, and provides aesthetic opportunities for displaying your brand colors.

Functional Entryways & Walkways – Resort Renovations Tip #3

If your resort renovations call for an exterior upgrade, tensioned fabric structures offer incredibly versatile options for revitalizing your property’s entrance and walkways.  From iconic structures that can act as a functional piece of art to simple solutions that provide protection when tropical showers pass through, the design options are seemingly endless.
