As a resort, your every move is dictated by one question: “How does this affect my bottom line?” It’s the natural direction that any sound-minded business owner’s mind will go. After all, in the hotel industry, return on investment is king. If you can’t make money off of a new addition or upgrade – there’s probably something else you should be spending that budget on. So where do resort cabanas fall in this equation?
It’s no surprise that after a year of pandemic-driven economic downturn, that focus on adding value has only intensified. While business owners everywhere have been working hard to rebuild in the post-COVID 19 era, we’ve consistently heard the same feedback from our clients – Their cabana investments have withstood the test of time.
During a period of so much uncertainty, here’s why investing in quality will improve your bottom line:
It’s no secret the last year has hit businesses hard. Resorts with poolside offerings experienced less visitors overall, with even fewer opportunities for upselling and the other value adds that usually make pool services so lucrative. It has very much become a time for planning for the future rather than focusing on the here and now.
Along with the unexpected slow season, comes a lack of use of amenities. Parts of the pool that were built to see high foot traffic and use have all of a sudden gone quiet for months at a time. We all know what happens to a house that’s not being lived in – Pools are very similar. Without clients regularly using the amenities, the infrastructure starts to take a hit.
Why the Quality of your Resort Cabanas Matters
For business owners that cut corners on the quality of the cabanas they installed at their pools, this lack of use has been catastrophic. Once beautiful poolside facilities are now in disarray, with below average craftsmanship rearing its ugly head as infrastructure woes have grown.
Poor maintenance practices during the slow season mean that in many cases, cheap cabana fabrics are either torn or have been bleached by the sun. The lack of use has also led to rusting support beams and other issues. Our clients, however, haven’t experienced these problems. Why? Because quality matters.
