Bay Inn Travel Information: COVID-19 Update

Our Bay Inn at the Lani Kai and our Lani Kai Island Resort staff is closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization’s statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following guidelines from these agencies and the local health departments.

The well-being of our guests and associates is of paramount importance.

Our Commitment to Cleanliness:

New Cleaning Technologies

Our company has initiated new sanitizing systems of enhanced technologies, including hand-held UV wands and UV technology that allows for touchless disinfecting capabilities, on top of our staff’s deep cleaning and sanitizing practices. Between every guest, rooms are deep-cleaned, fully sanitized and then “sealed” while awaiting the arrival of the next guest.

In its everyday cleaning, Lani Kai Island Resort/Bay Inn at the Lani Kai staff will continue using the highest classification of disinfectants recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization to treat known pathogens.


Cleaning Regimen Updates

When guests check into the Bay Inn at the Lani Kai now, they will notice a number of additions to the company’s regimen designed to set an even higher standard of cleanliness for their stay. Specific areas of focus include:
  • Surface Areas: In public spaces, the company has added to its already rigorous cleaning protocols, requiring Sanitizing Crews treated surfaces with hospital-grade disinfectants and that this cleaning is done with increased frequency. In guest rooms, Lani Kai Island Resort staff has added to its detailed cleaning practices, requiring all surfaces to be thoroughly cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectants. The company will also be placing hand sanitizers in each room for guests’ personal use.
  • Guest Contact: To help alleviate the risk of COVID-19 transmission through person-to-person contact, the Lani Kai Island Resort/Bay Inn at the Lani Kai has set up signage throughout the property to remind guests to maintain social distancing protocols and has spaced and re-arranged furniture to allow more space for distancing. We have added a full partition at the Front Desk to provide an extra level of precaution for its guests and associates and is sure our staff is equipped with masks – both front-of-house AND back-of-house. You’ll see more hand sanitizing stations around the Lani Kai property – including set-ups near the lobby and Front Desk, restaurant entrances, and ground-level bars. In addition, guests are encouraged to text any requests they have, as well as place room service orders via cellphone, delivered right to their door without contact.
