It’s the little things in life that matter the most. This cliché may seem corny, but it rings absolutely true in the hospitality industry. A neutral experience in a hotel may leave you satisfied but not happy enough to make you return. However, small gestures could create a lasting impression and even make or break your vacation experience. Here, we see the importance of amenities in a hotel and share tips on choosing suitable hotels in Kanyakumari
What Are Hotel Amenities?
To put it simply, hotel amenities are facilities provided to guests to enrich their experience during their stay. Standard hotel amenities include – a safety box, study table, and chair, coffee table, toiletries, smart TV, minibar, stationery, valet parking, etc. Naturally, these amenities will vary depending on the status of the hotel. For instance, five-star hotels would provide bathroom robes, luxury toiletries, and even free stays for pets. The more you pay, the more amenities you can expect. Hotel amenities can also be bifurcated as complementary and paid. The latter includes mini bar items, vending machines, etc. There are various other categories of amenities, including luxuries such as spas, theatre, private pools, and even creative amenities like welcome gifts, fruit baskets, books, etc.
What Are The Basic Amenities That Every Hotel Must Provide?
This includes soap, shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser, towels, hairdryer, iron, ironing board, shower cap, razor, toothpaste, toothbrush, and mouthwash.
Not long ago, guests had to pay for Wi-Fi. However, those days are long gone. Today, free Wi-Fi is considered among the most basic amenities. But you can take the experience to the next level by offering free access to streaming platforms like Netflix and Hotstar.
Complimentary Valet Parking
Traffic congestion is real in a small place like Kanyakumari. This is especially true near the beach, where buildings are very close to each other. But plenty of parking space with free parking facilities can be a deal breaker.
Tea and coffee are one of the most essential amenities provided in most hotels in Kanyakumari. While an electric kettle with a few sachets of instant coffee and tea bags is standard, you could take things a little further with a custom capsule coffee maker and some complementary bottled water.
But these are just standard hotel amenities. At Hotel Comorin Grand, we go above and beyond to ensure our guests have a memorable experience. This starts from the time guests step in because we know first impressions make a huge difference in the hospitality industry. We welcome all our guests warmly and with a smile, making them feel appreciated. All our guests are greeted with a traditional beverage and a bottle of water – after a long day of traveling by train and bus; these things make a huge difference.
We know tourists traveling to Kanyakumari aren’t always aware of the many natural wonders of the place. Their knowledge about our town and city is usually limited to the Kanyakumari Beach, the Bhagavathi Amman Temple, and the Suchindrum Temple. But there are so many places in the district worth visiting. We’re always happy to share this information with guests, even recommending the best time to visit these hidden gems and connect them with the right people to safely ferry them.
