In continued efforts to make guest and employee health and safety the number one priority, the luxury ranch property in Solvang, CA has taken the initiative to bring this advanced infection prevention technology to the hotel
Solvang CA— The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort, named one of the “Top 15 Resorts in Southern California” by Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards, becomes the first hotel partner of biosafety company, R-Zero Systems, incorporating UV-C disinfection protocols into each of the property’s 73 guest cottages, suites, and rooms. In seeking out the most efficient, effective, and safe approach to disinfection technology on the market, The Alisal establishes itself as a hospitality leader in offering the safest travel experience going into the holiday season and new year.
Incorporating R-Zero’s hospital-grade UV-C system (Arc) is one of the many steps that The Alisal has taken to ensure guest and employee health and safety while on property. In addition, The Alisal continues to offer expanded outdoor dining offerings, maintain physical distancing requirements, provide hand sanitizer and wash stations throughout property, ensure employee personal protective equipment (PPE), adhere to strict housekeeping standards, and limit capacity for all activities.
“Our highest priority at The Alisal is the health and wellbeing of our guests, members, employees and our community,” says Kathleen Cochran, General Manager of The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort. “Through our partnership with R-Zero and their UV-C technology, we will be able to provide a critical layer of added infection protection and environmental safety in each of our guest rooms. Additionally, Arc’s short disinfection cycles allows our team to focus on providing the exceptional service and experiences our guests have come to know and love.”
Arc is used in each room prior to guests’ arrival, disinfecting both surfaces and air, ensuring the highest level of safety within guest room spaces. Designed to deliver the highest level of efficacy and efficiency, Arc’s powerful UV-C destroys 99.99% of known pathogens and diseases, including the coronavirus, common cold, and seasonal flu, disinfecting a 1,000 square foot space in just seven minutes. Environmentally safe and eco-friendly, UV-C destroys pathogens without the use of chemicals or pesticides, and is safe to use around food, plants, furniture, and electronics. This proven technology has also been used in hospitals for more than a century to kill bacteria, viruses, molds, including many human pathogens. Most recently, UV-C has been used to decontaminate the N95 masks of doctors and healthcare heroes.
