ONYX Hospitality Group has announced enhanced operational hygiene and safety standards as part of a brand-new “ONYX Clean” initiative. The measures will be implemented across the Hospitality Group’s full portfolio. Onyx encompasses brands and properties such as Amari, OZO, and Shama. In the Maldives Onyx Hospitality operates Amari Havodda Maldives and an additional resort, OZO Maldives is in the pipeline.

The ONYX Clean initiative will impact every step of the guest journey from arrival to departure with updated standards and operational procedures that complement the group’s existing industry-leading health and safety initiatives. ONYX Clean will be introduced across all of the company’s 52 properties in 7 countries.

Each property has appointed an in-house ONYX Clean champion. The champion will ensure the implementation and internal audit of all standards based on a property-wide checklist developed in partnership with Ecolab. Ecolab is a global leader in hygiene, safety, and energy technology solutions. The company is a supplier of many cleaning products used by ONYX Hospitality Group properties.

As one of the leading medium-sized hospitality players in the Asia Pacific region, we have always taken pride in our high levels of hygiene and our long-standing commitment towards the safety and well-being of our guests, team members and the community.
