Have you seen today’s commercial swimming pools and spas at the local resorts? I mean, talk about AMAZING!!
Commercial swimming pools of 2013 are so elaborate and ornately designed in order to captivate the senses of each guest or resident, depending on the building (e.g. resort or condo).
It’s no secret that resorts in Florida do their absolute best to provide wonderful accommodations with the intention of retaining each guest so that there’s no need to wander off site.
Resorts not only spend an inordinate amount of money on pool & spa renovations, but also:
- Food and beverage
- Pool-side lounge chairs, tables, and privacy tents
- Pool-side entertainment including:
- Karaoke stations
- Live music entertainers
- Games for families
- Slides, waterfalls, and water features
Not all commercial pools belong to resorts
It goes without saying that not all commercial pools here in Southwest Florida belong to resorts.
There are plenty of condominium complexes that are also renovating their pools in order to attract more residents.
The point that I’m trying to make is that if you’re not keeping your pool, spa, and other amenities up to par with the competition, don’t be surprised if your target market takes their business elsewhere.
And don’t fall into the trap of believing “Well, those kinds of pools and amenities are mainly found in the big cities and resort towns of Orlando, Miami, and Tampa.”
That’s just ridiculous because if you’ve visited some of the local resorts and condos on Sanibel, Captiva, Naples, and Fort Myers Beach, you’d see that all of the elements that I described above are already here!
The question is, are you taking advantage of all the modern advancements in outdoor entertainment to keep up with the Joneses?
If you own or manage a commercial swimming pool & spa here in Southwest Florida, ask yourself these questions:
- Is it compliant with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act of 2008?
- Does your pool provide the best possible guest experience while staying within your budget?
First and foremost, if you plan to renovate your pool, it must be in compliance with the Pool & Spa Safety Act of 2008 which was enacted to prevent the tragic and hidden hazard of drain entrapments and eviscerations in pools and spas.
Secondly, in Florida’s ultra-competitive tourism industry, you are not only competing with other local resorts and condos, but you’re also competing with those located in Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Panama City, and the Keys.
It’s plain and simple; if you don’t provide the kind of guest experience that sophisticated tourists have come to expect, if they like the area, they’ll find a local competitor who will. If they don’t like the local area, they’ll find a competitor outside of Southwest Florida.
The common denominator here is that both scenarios equal less return visitors and less money in your pocket.
