Kempinski Reopens All Hotels in China

(Kempinski)

Following early signs of recovery and eased lockdowns after the coronavirus (COVID-19) spread in China, Kempinski Hotels has reopened all of its hotels in the country. New, strict safety and hygiene procedures have been put in place to comply with local government authorities and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, while innovative services have been introduced as a business enhancement and guest experiences.

Michael Henssler, COO Asia and member of the management board for Kempinski Hotels, said in an official release that travel is no longer about “the best hotel, the greatest dinner or the lowest price, but for the safest experience.” To that extent, the brand recently debuted its new “Kempinski White Glove Service.”
