With Hawaii’s pre-travel testing program starting on October 15th, many hotels are finally preparing to reopen for guests, including Club Wyndham at Waikiki Beach Walk®. Located just a block away from the golden shores of Waikiki Beach, accommodations at this hotel range from a variety of one-bedroom suites up to the four-bedroom presidential unit—all of which feature a separate living room, full kitchen, and a washer and dryer set for your convenience.

To create a safer and more comfortable atmosphere during your stay, Wyndham Destinations has partnered with cleaning industry expert Ecolab to develop the Vacation Ready program. This consists of enhanced disinfection procedures and social distancing measures that extend across every aspect of the guest experience to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness. Here are some of the Vacation Ready protocols you can expect during your visit:

Upon Check-In
  • Guests are able to complete pre-arrival check-in, so they can go straight to their suite upon arrival.
  • Text notifications let guests know when suites are ready to minimize wait time in the lobby.
  • Suite keys are thoroughly sanitized and disinfected before being issued. Guests can also call ahead to coordinate suite-key delivery to further minimize contact.
At The Resort
  • Multiple cleaning stations provide easy access to hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.
  • Updated furniture spacing encourages socializing at a safe distance in common areas.
  • High-touch surfaces across public areas—from telephones and touchscreens to handles and hand railings—are frequently cleaned and disinfected with Ecolab’s trusted products.
  • Resort staff will wear personal-protective equipment and have been trained on proper disinfection procedures with resources from industry-leading cleaning experts at EcoLab.
  • The latest technology from Ecolab will be used to disinfect public spaces.
In Suites
  • Housekeepers will wear protective gear throughout the cleaning process.
  • All surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with special attention given to high-touch items such as door handles, light switches, thermostats, telephones, remote controls, alarm clocks, drapery pulls, furniture knobs, appliances, and faucet, toilet and shower handles.
  • Suites will be kept vacant for an extended period before cleaning starts.
