I just got off the event of RedDoorz as they just announced that most of their properties are officially certified by Hygiene Pass, the new clean promise for Filipino travelers. It was attended by Miguel Capistrano III the RedDoorz Philippines Country Manager, Dr. Renzo Guinto their Hygiene Pass Public Health Consultant and Kean Cipriano, an actor, musician, songwriter, and RedDoorz Hygiene Pass Advocate.
RedDoorz has been in the Philippines since 2018 and with standardized service guarantees in the whole of Asia, they provide really affordable stays in hotels, homes, with the assurance you get what you pay for. They have amenity kits, air conditioners, 24/7 service, water heater, wifi, TV and mineral water. The Philippines is the second biggest market of RedDoorz next to Singapore who has been doing this for years. Unfortunately now, there has been a deep decline in hotel stays and a slump has been felt during the pandemic. They made sure to study what is happening and found out a few matters to get things back to normal. Hygiene for example should be a priority, and this is how they got Hygiene Pass to certify their properties. This means they follow WHO and DOT protocols and public safety measures. They want to make sure rooms are clean and sanitized, their people are tested, implement the measures for all their renters, and put that the certification so guests are assured to stay safe. With it, they got the Hygiene Pass certified hotels available on the app. They have worked with Dr. Renzo Guinto as their consultant.
Mr. Capistrano says "We are very excited to note that since we launched the campaign, our safety is our priority, in terms of the business, all hotels that have it have improved visibility, increase in traffic and demand. More than 10% increase and is still increasing every year. I believe it should always be the priority, with or without the virus. Everyone stays in them so it should be really sanitized."
Kean Cipriano says "Happy to be here to hangout with you guys, still alive and my family is safe. To be honest, it's really different to do this inside our homes, the pandemic is really hard because of the different landscape. I am optimistic that 2021 will be different and hopefully we can learn from the procedures and things we are implementing in Hygiene Pass. I actually take care of my kids, we don't have help, I take them on trips and at work even for gigs and meetings. When I stayed in a RedDoorz property, I made sure my family is safe, it's like when you stay in one, you'll be familiar with any RedDoorz property. For me, this campaign is just something to be thankful for. We are all paranoid for my kids and myself, I don't go out much but in this time, we can't rely on someone else's honesty and it's all about integrity, a campaign where RedDoorz make sure we're going to be safe is something that is huge especially for me who's a big family man. It really matters, before, it was so different. I go out of my car and spill a bottle or more of alcohol sometimes but we have to look out for each other, this is what Hygiene Pass is, a clean promise and I will have to trust them that they are cleaning the properties not just for me but my whole family. Touring is what I do for a living and it was gone because of this pandemic, so I always have to make sure where I stay is safe, affordable and practical. When you see in social media that you've got a blue check, it's different, because in this case, there is a concern by the brand, you have assurance that even the people who work in the place are safe. This is a good step, this campaign will have a domino effect to other properties so we would be mindful, make sure our people are safe. This will help a lot of people. Happy holidays!"
