CORONAVIRUS UPDATE MAY 2020

Dear Valued Guest,

We hope this updated letter finds you and your family safe and well at this time. Many of us will be reflecting on how everyday life has changed in recent months.

We have all had to significantly adapt our daily lives, including the way we operate our hotels in UK, and we want to personally thank you for your ongoing patience and co-operation.

Working together, we have continued to make changes to protect you and our colleagues, and to ensure we can accommodate our KEY and Essential workers who need to work away from their homes.

Most recently, we have begun providing our hotel teams with the option of wearing face masks and PPE.

These moves were in addition to the other measures we have put in place within our UK Hotels, as a reminder, these have included:

  • Providing PPE to our teams
  • Staff training modules – following Government guidelines
  • Enhanced Housekeeping cleaning measures with industry registered cleaning products for all our teams
  • Virtual pre-check in prior to arrival
  • Installing clear screens at check-in/out desks and bar areas
  • Limiting the number of people at any one time at reception, bar and lift areas
  • Installing two-metre floor markers and increased in-house signage promoting physical distancing
  • Enhanced Housekeeping cleaning measures with industry registered cleaning products in all areas of the hotel
  • Removal of in-room guest directory and literature
  • Offering ‘Grab n Go breakfast option or social distancing table spacing
  • In room dining, pre-order drinks service & removing any tray charge costs.
  • Sanitizing stations at all entrancing and exit points
  • Encouraging customers to use contactless payment such as contactless cards, rather than cash, where possible

These measures would not have been as effective without you playing your part by following our guidelines with patience and understanding.

There are bound to be more changes to come in these and other areas of our everyday lives. Whatever they may be, the steps we have taken are important and we expect that they – and your continued support for them – will be needed for the foreseeable future.

If you wish to enquire about Key/Essential worker accommodation, please email [email protected] or call our team at 07377 877 721.

In the meantime, thank you for your support in making our hotel a safe place to stay.

Best wishes,

Compass Hospitality

Compass Hospitality Joins Hands With Seacare Hospitality and SPCS Consultancy to Acquire The Suites Hotel & Spa Knowsley

UNITED KINGDOM – In line with its plans for further expansion into the UK market, Compass Hospitality has added a second spa hotel to its UK portfolio: The Suites Hotel Knowsley. Situated in the borough of Knowsley, near Liverpool, the newly refurbished spa hotel is a joint investment between three parties: Seacare Hospitality, SPCS Consultancy, and Compass Hospitality.

 

The acquisition also marks the first foray of SPCS Consultancy – a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Singapore Police Co-operative Society Ltd – into the hotel and resorts sector.

One of the most well-renowned hotels in the North West, the suite-only hotel boasts 96 luxurious bedrooms, two on-site restaurants, and eight event spaces. The hotel also features an award-winning luxury spa and leisure club – one of the region’s finest leisure, relaxation and fitness destinations.

 

Set adjacent to the Knowsley Business Park amid the sprawling suburbs of Liverpool and within commuting distance of Manchester, the hotel offers a prime location for visiting both Northern Powerhouse cities. With both Goodison Park, the home of Everton FC, and Anfield Stadium, the home of Liverpool FC, just a short drive from the property, the hotel enjoys welcoming visitors drawn to these sporting arenas, along with leisure and corporate guests alike.

“A key component in our decision to acquire The Suites Hotel Knowsley is that not only the hotel benefits from the adjacent business park to attain corporate businesses,

but the hotel also offers a unique, well-positioned product to target leisure demand from Liverpool and the surrounding …
… Metropolitan Area,” says Chye Teen Lim, Seacare Hospitality CEO. Compass Hospitality’s CEO Harmil Singh added, “We are excited to collaborate with Seacare Hospitality and SPCS Consultancy on this awardwinning spa hotel. We are ready to implement several strategic opportunities to add value to this asset over short to medium term to further enhance its performance.”

Bangkok, The Ultimate Town Experience

Street Tourist - Bangkok, The Ultimate Town ExperienceBangkok is a colorful and high-spirited city full of things to do for a diverse group of people – from indulging in Thai staples in a medley of colorful markets to immersing yourself in an exotic culture.

Every corner you turn has an extraordinary history, pristine natural conservation areas, and renowned parklands that are fun for both locals and tourists alike. Art buffs will find the booming metropolis brimming with a vibrant art scene, while lively festivals add even more bold color to the crowded streets and frenzied urban sprawl.

With that in mind, first-timers may find Thailand’s glittering capital overwhelming at first glance. If you’re looking to maximize your trip to Bangkok, we’ve got you covered with our ultimate getaway plan to the electric city.

Tip #1: Take a Food Tour around Bangkok

One of the best ways to fully immerse yourself in a new city is by tasting their culture’s diverse flavors. With that in mind, Bangkok offers food tours that can satisfy your craving for authentic Thai staples, while the eyes are full from the scenic backdrop of the city’s most exciting markets such as the Flower Market, a local Muslim market, and the vivid streets of Chinatown.

The best part? Indulging in street food is a perfect activity for those foodie adventures without breaking the bank as many stalls serve mouth-watering dishes all for a friendly price. Whether you have an epicurean palate or seek out your thrills in the form of comfort food, there’s no denying that Bangkok’s marketplaces have delectable joints you should keep tabs on your visit.

Tip #2: Explore the Red Light at Soi Cowboy

Those who want to fall into Bangkok’s red-light district can find a rabbit-hole of adult entertainment at Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza, two of the most vibrant areas where you can set your inhibitions loose. The lively streets are lined with go-go bars where beautiful and charming girls will greet you at every corner. The allure of this sin city is that it coaxes out a wild and lively side in you, making it a must-visit spot if you’re looking for a unique experience.

Tip #3: Take a Stroll at King Rama IX Park

Locals or tourists in search of a quiet place to enjoy the great outdoors can find a safe, green haven at King Rama IX Park. It is Bangkok’s largest public park filled with horticultural beauty and various types of plants arranged in over two dozen eye-catching, picturesque gardens representing different cultures.

Families and friends are free to stroll around and marvel at the outdoor sculpture and miles of walking paths, all of which have the power to leave a lasting sense of peace upon your visit. For lovers of all things nature, the city’s loveliest attraction is the place to unwind and relax under the sun.

Tip #4: Delve into the Arts in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bangkok

Museum of Contemporary Art in Bangkok is an awe-inspiring spot that looms over the city, housing Thailand’s most comprehensive collection of modern painting and sculpture. The museum itself is a striking sight to behold with five-stories containing over 800 pieces of art since the introduction of advanced western concepts.

Tip #5: Explore the Kamthieng House Museum

Those who are suddenly missing the peacefulness of a provincial life can visit Kamthieng House Museum, a hub for live cultural experiences that focuses on educating city-goers about rural life in Thailand. It’s a quiet haven within the hectic, urban jungle of Bangkok, making it an ideal sanctuary for those who want to learn about the exotic culture of Thailand in a time where there were no skyscrapers dominating the vibrant island.

Compass Hospitality Continues UK Expansion with New London Hotel

October 1, 2019 – Compass Hospitality is set to make a debut in London through the signing of Arosfa Hotel, which has been recently acquired by Singapore-based Buxani Group. The Arosfa Hotel will be Compass Hospitality’s 16th hotel in the UK, further establishing the hotel chain’s commitment to consolidate its footprint in Great Britain.

A Grade II-listed Georgian townhouse, the Arosfa Hotel dates back to 1780 and was a former home to the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais. The boutique hotel houses 17 charming bedrooms and enjoys exceptionally central location in the historic Bloomsbury district of Fitzrovia, a short walking distance to major landmarks in the area including The British Museum, Oxford Street, University College London, and Regent’s Park. The hotel also benefits from excellent transport links; London Underground tube network, as well as three of London’s busiest railway stations – London Euston Station, London King’s Cross and London St Pancras International – are all within walking distance from the hotel. The last of the three railway stations also connects London with major cities in Mainland Europe such as Amsterdam, Brussels, and Paris.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Arosfa Hotel into our diverse portfolio of projects,” says Kishore Buxani, Founder and CEO of Buxani Group. “This strategic expansion in London marks our third hotel in the UK managed by Compass Hospitality since last year and highlights our robust confidence in the market.”

Harmil Singh, CEO of Compass Hospitality, added “On the back of encouraging performance across our UK portfolio, we are happy to expand and to set foot in the Capital. We continue to be committed to the UK market and we are eyeing further expansion in the coming months.”

Harrow International School Bangkok students successfully completed their internship with Compass Hospitality

Last week we had the absolute pleasure of welcoming Napatra Vacharavithayakorn, Stanley Chow, and Theerathep Youngvanich from Harrow International School Bangkok, as they venture and explore their interest in the hospitality industry. Under the guidance of our Digital Marketing and our Investment teams, the three successfully completed a SWOT analysis of four properties: Compass Skyview, The Continent, Galleria 10 and Galleria 12.

“We at Compass Hospitality appreciate young talents and the grit to learn,” commented Irvan Sutiono, Manager, Investments and Compliance. “SWOT analysis is no easy task for a high school student, and the three have impressed us, each taking a different approach to tackle the project. Rabin and I are honored to have been able to guide them through the process, and we hope to welcome them again in the future.”

The students shared their thoughts about their internship –

Thep Youngvanich – Year 11 Student at Harrow International School Bangkok

First of all, I would like to thank Compass Hospitality for providing an opportunity for me to experience business in the hospitality industry. Even though I only had one week to experience the business world and to work with Compass Hospitality, I have received many lessons and experiences that cannot ever be acquired through school.

For my one-week project, I had to create a SWOT analysis of two hotels managed by Compass Hospitality. On day one I had no clue what a SWOT analysis was, at first I thought that I had to analyze cops around the area! Once I actually understood what the SWOT analysis was: an analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of a product. I went straight to the Internet and immediately compared the rates of hotel rooms I am in charge of and its competitors. Little did I know, my method was wrong. After talking to my supervisor who gave me more knowledge about the hospitality industry, I understood that comparing prices isn’t as simple as I thought due to the constant change of supply and demand of rooms. He told me that there are different aspects of a hotel that draws in guests and suggested me to look at qualitative data such as reviews. My supervisor also puts emphasis on collecting only reliable and useful data, continually saying, “Remember to always take in things with a pinch of salt”. Sure, at school the teachers always said this to me, well not the exact saying, but you get the point. It was common sense, but it was easier in theory than in practice. Going through all the data and slowly filtering them was tiring both mentally and physically (especially on the eyes), but it proves to be a very significant skill.

Besides collecting data from the Internet, I also had to talk to managers of hotels and the e-commerce team. Therefore, I had many opportunities to talk to the operational manager, general manager, human resources manager, the financial manager, and the e-commerce team. Every single person was approachable, resourceful, and very helpful. They gave me their opinions on my SWOT analysis and their own viewpoints of the hotels. In addition, they also taught me how to interpret and determine the relationship between statistical data and taught me new vocabularies such as RevPAR (Revenue per available room), YTD (Year to date), and ADR (Average daily room rate). Besides all the raw knowledge I’ve received from this experience, I’ve also received something that is tremendously beneficial to me, which will play a huge part in deciding my career path: the sincere advice from people I’ve met during my one-week experience. I appreciate everyone that told me about their personal experience during the one-week duration, because like they said: ” They have gone through what I am going through, all the puzzlement and cluelessness; and if they could have the opportunity that I have received, they would also appreciate it”.

Overall this one-week work experience at Compass Hospitality was well spent, though challenging at times, it was absolutely exhilarating and fun. I would definitely recommend the experience to people who are interested in the hospitality industry.

Punpun Vacharavithayakorn – Year 11 Student at Harrow International School Bangkok

During the one week of work experience at Compass Hospitality, I worked on the SWOT analysis of The Continent Hotel. The placement that I observed was digital marketing. I experienced what it’s like to work in an office with other people. It was very tiring at times but that was a valuable experience.

The task that was given to me was to do a SWOT analysis of a hotel. It had a lot of flexibility so the outcome of the task was a bit different for the three of us. I focused mainly on the hotel itself. So my SWOT analysis was focused on the continent hotel not the surrounding area. A new skill that I learned was how to make a SWOT analysis and I think this is very helpful and can be used in other fields not just for hospitality. The SWOT analysis helped me understand how to spot the strength, weakness, opportunities and threats of a place or an object along with how to use the internet to find useful information about the hotel, such as the price, customer reviews and nearby hotels.

What I focused on was customer reviews because I believe that is important for the image of the hotel and also the flaws that the manager pointed out to me that are visible for the guests. When I went to look at the hotel with the general manager it taught me how a hotel operates with different sectors working together for example food and beverages and housekeeping and showed me how important it is that all these sectors work together to create a pleasurable experience for the guests.

I also made a presentation to present this information on the last day of the work experience. This was nerve-wracking but helpful because it is a good opportunity for me to practice my public speaking and presenting skills.

In conclusion, I had a wonderful time at compass hospitality. Although it was one short week, I learned many new skills and had a great experience that taught me a lot.

Stanley Chow – Year 11 Student at Harrow International School Bangkok

I had my one-week work experience in Compass Hospitality, when I entered the office I barely knew anything. We were very nervous because we’ve never done anything like this before, although it was terrifying at first, I was also very excited because this is very new to me.

During the one week we had there we were given a task, that task was to create a SWOT presentation on the hotel we were tasked to do a SWOT analysis on.

On our first day we first researched on the Hotel we were tasked to create a presentation on. I was assigned to Compass Skyview Hotel, Thep was assigned to 2 hotels, Galleria 10 & 12, Punpun was assigned to The Continent Hotel. We first researched on our hotels given. After doing a fair amount of research, we set off to our hotels by ourselves, and got a tour by the staff in the hotel. It was a cool experience, I never thought I would get a tour of a 5-star hotel, from the tour I asked many questions and found out many things which made it more interesting.

The second and third day were the same just constantly researching and slowly adding things to our presentation. On the fourth day, Thursday, is when the nerves really started to kick in, I was completely terrified of the thought of presenting my presentation in front of people I don’t really know. And also I really don’t like standing in front and talking people I don’t really know.

On Friday, our last day there we were really nervous but also really want to finish the project. But also scared if we got anything wrong about the hotel. When it was my turn to present I started off badly, I stuttered a lot at first until they told me it was okay if I was nervous and to take my time. I took a little break and then continued and finished, I felt like I did badly at first and got better later. Throughout my week at Compass Hospitality I found it really challenging because all the tasks were new but it was also very exciting and fun, I had an amazing time there, I got to learn new things I didn’t know and got new experience.
