Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has launched its Count on Us initiative in every property worldwide to build confidence among guests and to support Wyndham hotel partners as they prepare to welcome back travellers in the wake of COVID-19.
From the introduction of robust new training and guidelines to ongoing access to critical health essentials, such as PPE, the initiative aims to place health and wellbeing first. Below are the five ways how Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ Count on Us initiative puts the health and safety of guests front and centre.
Under this global safety initiative, Wyndham’s hotel team members in the Asia Pacific will be encouraged to be a Hygiene Hero by championing the new protocols and staying up to date on the latest guidance concerning the health and safety of their guests.
The safety of guests is paramount to instil confidence to domestic and international travellers. Thus, inspection and monitoring of all areas in the resort are carried out daily to ensure that the new health and safety protocols prescribed by the tourism authorities are being followed.
Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay, nestled in the paradise island in the southwest of Thailand, offers 152 villas each with its own infinity pool with panoramic sea views so guests can unwind and relax all from the privacy and comforts of their own room. The large acreage and the privacy of each villa make it perfect for social distancing and isolating oneself.
Enhanced cleaning and disinfection measures
Since the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, Wyndham has experts when it comes to health and safety protocols. Stringent cleaning and disinfection practices are part of the “new normal” in all Wyndham Hotels & Resorts properties as detailed in its Count on Us initiative.
Wyndham imposes frequent cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch areas requiring consistent use of EPA-approved disinfectants which are designed to disinfect emerging pathogens, in all hotel guestrooms and public spaces. This move builds on the already high operational standards at their hotels and will deliver an elevated and more consistent cleaning experience across the region.
The hotel giant has expanded its global partnership with Ecolab, a leading company in water, hygiene and infection prevention technologies and services, with an extensive suite of training resources on hygiene and sanitation best practices, as well as a list of preferred pricing, product availability, and supplier contacts across various countries.
STAY SAFE with our dedicated Clean Team!Specially trained by industry-leading cleaning experts from Ecolab on proper disinfection procedures, the Clean Team are performing enhanced deep cleaning and sanitiszing protocols continually in all areas to ensure a clean and safe environment at all times.

The hotel has also launched day-use rooms for guests who need a clean, quiet space for work now that co-working spaces are discouraged and when your home is not conducive for working.
We are in this together
While every property under Wyndham does its part in keeping you safe, the Count on Us initiative also reminds everyone to do their part. Recognising the importance of building trust and instilling confidence, Wyndham is also taking steps to ensure guests and hotel team members can physically see the above efforts and trust in their impact.
On property, guests will have access to hand sanitisers, notice social distancing enhancing measures in public spaces, observe increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch areas, while hotel team members will make use of personal protective equipment as needed.
To effectively communicate these efforts, Wyndham will provide hotels with a collection of branded collaterals emphasising key safety measures, to be placed on-property in areas like the front desk, public areas, and guest rooms.
