The South African hotel industry is booming, and along with it the demand for unique amenities for hotel rooms has skyrocketed as well. If you are currently on the lookout for products that will add that something extra to your guests experience, you are not alone – all the best businesses are doing the same.
Here are a few things to look out for when selecting unique amenities for hotel rooms in South Africa:
The South African body care manufacturing industry offers a variety of fantastic options, and when you source locally, you don’t only end up paying less because of proximity, it also means the carbon footprint on the products you stock is that much lower.
TOP TIP: When you source locally-produced products from companies that go out of their way to promote sustainable manufacturing practises, you can use this information as a USP on your marketing materials, both online and in print. Guests like to know that they are supporting businesses that care about the environment and their impact on it.
Products with a natural African flair
Whether your guests are local or are visiting from abroad, providing amenities that have a natural African flair is always a good idea. This does not mean that it has to be covered in San rock art or Ndebele print – it can simply contain ingredients that are native to the continent and speak to the age-old wisdom of the African people who have been using it for centuries.
Beautiful products that smell great
Accommodation providers often spend so much time focussing on the look and feel of their establishments that they tend to neglect one of the most important senses – smell. Our olfactory system is closely linked to memory, so if you give your guests a pleasant sensory experience that includes great-smelling body products, they are far more likely to reward you with some valuable word of mouth.
Unique amenities for hotel rooms are a great drawing card for discerning clientele. Offer an array of locally-sourced products that have a natural African flair, smell great and tread lightly on the earth. This way you give your guests the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful selfcare experience, safe in the knowledge that they are supporting an accommodation provider who partners with sustainable product providers.
