Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific has finalised new rigorous, industry-leading health and cleanliness protocols developed in partnership with global hygiene experts to provide confidence to guests and timeshare owners staying at its Club Wyndham South Pacific and Club Wyndham Asia resorts.

The overhaul of hygiene practices will make use of Ecolab’s hospital-grade disinfectants to clean high-traffic areas, provide guests greater access to hand sanitiser, redesign common areas for social distancing and tighten housekeeping procedures. It comes as Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific gets ready for a staged reopening of properties in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Indonesia and Thailand to guests and members of Club Wyndham South Pacific, the Asia Pacific’s leading timeshare club.

Behind the scenes, resort staff will have an in-house health check every morning. New procedures have also been created for staff interactions, from a cap on the number of people using lunchrooms at once to how shared phones and keys are to be cleaned.

Additionally, while resorts are closed, Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific has fast-tracked a mammoth operation to ‘deep clean’ more than 1,200 Club Wyndham South Pacific rooms, while 206 more will undergo extensive cleaning as part of refurbishments. A deep clean involves carrying out all maintenance, tidying and sanitisation required to bring the room to as-new condition.

Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific manages a collection of 54 properties across Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, Hawaii in the US and Europe, some of which are mixed-use hotel and timeshare developments. It also serves almost 71,000 vacation owners who are part of Club Wyndham South Pacific and Club Wyndham Asia.
