Hong Kong-based hotel group Shangri-La is the latest hotel group to announce a chain-wide set of guidelines and commitments towards traveller well-being.  This will apply across the Shangri-La, Kerry, JEN and Traders brands.

Shangri-La Group launches new customer care guidelines

  • Staff
  • Arrival and departure procedures
  • Guest rooms
  • Communal spaces
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Leisure and wellness
  • Meetings and events
