Creating lasting impressions: how resin flooring can transform luxury hotels & resorts

The power of first impressions is unrivalled, especially in the world of hospitality, and the right flooring can transform the ambiance of luxury hotels and resorts and the experience of their guests. 

Resin flooring, with its fusion of beauty and durability, not only delivers seamless finishes, customisable designs and a vast palette of colours and patterns but also withstands the rigours of high foot traffic, impact and exposure to chemicals and cleaning agents commonly found in these environments. By seamlessly blending aesthetics and functionality, resin flooring allows hotels and resorts to create an enchanting atmosphere. 

The power of first impressions 

In luxury hotels and resorts, first impressions carry tremendous weight. They have the ability to shape a guest’s entire experience, setting the stage for their stay and leaving an indelible mark in their memory. When it comes to creating a captivating and unforgettable ambiance, every detail matters, and flooring can play a pivotal role in this narrative.  

The versatility of resin flooring and its and ability to seamlessly integrate with various design elements make it a powerful tool for crafting the perfect welcoming environment. The flooring becomes a canvas for the hotel’s unique style, allowing for endless possibilities to reflect the brand and essence of the establishment. 

By choosing resin flooring, luxury hotels and resorts can make a bold statement that resonates with their guests from the very moment they step foot inside. Whether it’s a contemporary, minimalist design that exudes modern luxury or a more classic, opulent aesthetic that harkens back to a bygone era, resin flooring can bring these visions to life. 

But first impressions aren’t just about aesthetics. They extend beyond the visual, encompassing the quality and functionality of the space. Resin flooring delivers on both fronts. With its exceptional durability and ability to withstand heavy foot traffic, impact and chemical exposure, it ensures that the initial allure of the floor remains intact over time, maintaining the high standards of luxury that the hotel or resort promises. 

What’s more, resin flooring can offer a sense of continuity and flow, seamlessly connecting different areas of the hotel or resort. Whether it’s the lobby, corridors, restaurants, bars, or spa, the consistent and uninterrupted appearance of resin flooring creates a sense of unity, amplifying the overall aesthetic impact. 

In the fiercely competitive landscape of luxury hospitality, first impressions can be the difference between success and mediocrity. Resin flooring has the power to transform these first impressions into lasting memories, taking hotels and resorts to another level of distinction and refinement.  

Combining beauty & durability 

Resin flooring can deliver the perfect combination of aesthetics and durability, making it an ideal choice for luxury hotels and resorts seeking to create captivating and long-lasting spaces.  

Epoxy terrazzo, for example, offers boundless creative potential, combining a custom blend of marble aggregates, with a high-performance, coloured epoxy resin binder. The result is a visually stunning floor that dazzles with unlimited colour options and the potential to install in intricate patterns.  

Luxury hotels and resorts can harness the boundless design possibilities offered by epoxy terrazzo, showcasing the hotel’s logo within the floor, zoning the space with a larger pattern designed into the surface, or conveying a sense of sophistication through a minimalist approach. Alongside its aesthetic appeal, epoxy terrazzo boasts exceptional durability, withstanding heavy foot traffic, impacts and abrasion without compromising its finish, preserving the luxurious atmosphere that hospitality establishments aim to provide. 

PU comfort floors present an ideal blend of comfort, style and durability. Created by blending polyurethane resins with innovative additives, these floors offer a soft and flexible surface that cushions footsteps, providing exceptional underfoot comfort.  

This feature proves particularly valuable for luxury hotels and resorts where guest and staff well-being is paramount. Beyond their comfort-enhancing properties, PU comfort floors offer a wide range of design options, featuring an array of colours and finishes to suit the desired look. These floors seamlessly integrate with various areas of the hotel or resort, whether it’s creating a serene atmosphere in guest rooms, facilitating a welcoming experience in reception areas, or ensuring a comfortable and relaxing environment in spa and wellness spaces. 

Traditional polyurethane flooring solutions excel in delivering a winning combination of durability and aesthetic appeal. With their robust composition and ability to withstand high foot traffic, impact and chemical exposure, polyurethane floors prove their mettle in the demanding environments of luxury hotels and resorts. These versatile solutions offer a range of finishes, including glossy or matte options, and an extensive colour palette to complement any design vision. By opting for polyurethane flooring, hotels and resorts can maintain an impeccable appearance while ensuring long-lasting performance and easy maintenance. 

Safety & comfort for guests 

The well-being and satisfaction of guests are of paramount importance. Resin flooring can not only deliver an attractive finish underfoot, but it can also contribute significantly to the safety and comfort of guests throughout their stay. With features such as slip resistance, noise reduction and ease of maintenance, resin flooring creates an environment where guests can feel secure, relaxed and at ease. 

Slip resistance: creating surefooted surfaces 

Safety is a top priority in hospitality environments, and resin flooring addresses this concern with its slip-resistant properties. Hotels and resorts experience high foot traffic, and the risk of slips and falls is a genuine concern. Resin flooring solutions can be tailored to provide excellent slip resistance by incorporating textured surfaces or additives into the flooring, minimising the chances of accidents and injuries associated with slips. 

Noise reduction: enhancing tranquillity 

In bustling hotels and resorts, noise reduction becomes crucial in creating a serene and tranquil atmosphere. PU comfort floors have inherent sound-absorbing qualities that help minimise the transmission of sound between floors. This is especially important in areas such as corridors and common areas where guests seek peace and relaxation.  

Ease of maintenance: streamlining operations 

Luxury hotels and resorts require flooring solutions that are not only visually stunning but also easy to maintain. Resin flooring meets this demand with its seamless and smooth surfaces, which not only minimise the accumulation of dust, dirt and debris, but make them easier to clean. Additionally, the durability and stain resistance of resin flooring, such as epoxy terrazzo and polyurethane solutions, help maintain the pristine appearance of the floors, preserving the aesthetic appeal that defines luxury hospitality. 

Sustainability & eco-friendliness 

Sustainability is a crucial consideration for luxury hotels and resorts, and sustainable solutions that minimise their ecological footprint are becoming increasingly popular. Resin flooring emerges as a compelling choice, offering a range of eco-friendly benefits that align with the principles of environmental consciousness. 

Recyclability & reusability: minimising waste 

Resin flooring solutions, including epoxy terrazzo, PU comfort floors, and polyurethane options, are designed with recyclability and reusability in mind. These flooring systems can be recycled at the end of their lifespan, diverting waste from landfills and reducing environmental impact. 

Low VOC emissions: enhancing indoor air quality 

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals commonly found in conventional flooring materials that can have adverse effects on indoor air quality. Resin flooring offers low VOC emission options, providing a healthier indoor environment for guests and staff. These low emission properties contribute to improved air quality, reducing the risk of respiratory issues and allergies. Luxury hotels and resorts that prioritise the well-being of their guests can confidently opt for resin flooring solutions to promote a healthier and more sustainable atmosphere.  

Durable & long-lasting: reducing lifecycle environmental impact 

The durability and longevity of resin flooring play a pivotal role in sustainability. Resin flooring systems are known for their exceptional resistance to wear, abrasion and chemical exposure, reducing the need for frequent replacement.  

Focus on flooring: the finishing touch 

In luxury hotels and resorts, creating lasting impressions is essential. Resin flooring seamlessly blends beauty and durability to elevate the overall experience for guests. Beyond aesthetics, resin flooring prioritises safety and comfort to ensure a worry-free and tranquil environment. Through options like epoxy terrazzo, PU comfort floors and polyurethane solutions, captivating designs can be created that leave a lasting impression on guests. 

Designed for commercial areas with high levels of pedestrian traffic, vebro Classic Terrazzo is a perfect choice for hotels and resorts. It combines an appealing mix of decorative aggregates, which are ground, grouted and sealed to create a visually striking terrazzo surface that catches the eye. 

When it comes to vebro Classic Terrazzo, the options are endless. The aggregate type, size, resin binder colour, and finish can all be fully customised, ensuring that each installation is truly unique. Additionally, pre-cast terrazzo elements can be crafted to complement or contrast with the seamless epoxy terrazzo, allowing for further customisation. Whether it’s stair treads, coving, bar tops or counters, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. 

The epoxy terrazzo system is incredibly durable, making it ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic. The surface is easy to clean, sanitise, and maintain, ensuring a hygienic environment. Unlike traditional cement terrazzo, it offers more movement, reducing the risk of cracking. It also provides excellent resistance to chemicals and stains and the epoxy binder used in vebro Classic Terrazzo is AgBB certified, meeting the highest standards for indoor air quality. With the ability to match any RAL colour and infinite design possibilities, vebro Classic Terrazzo is a versatile flooring solution. It can even be installed over underfloor heating pipes, providing both style and comfort. 

The vebroflex range, a collection of PU comfort floors, provide a cushioned effect underfoot and effectively reduce noise caused by heavy footfall. 

vebroflex systems have gained significant popularity in education, healthcare, public facilities as well as mixed-use and multi-occupancy commercial buildings. Their versatility and outstanding performance make them a preferred choice for diverse environments seeking both comfort and functionality. 

Available in an almost limitless palette of colours, these attractive liquid vinyl floor coating systems offer a cushioned and sound-reducing effect, creating a warm and ergonomic feel in commercial spaces like hotels and resorts, and their smooth and resistant finish makes cleaning a breeze, providing a hassle-free maintenance solution.  

PU floor systems such as vebrores PU SL HD, a formidable heavy-duty polyurethane flooring system that combines durability, flexibility, and a self-smoothing finish, are engineered to deliver exceptional strength and outstanding performance, making it an ideal choice for busy commercial environments.  

A combination of vebrores PU SL HD and vebro Classic Terrazzo was recently chosen for the Singleton Distillery visitors’ centre, a space akin to a hotel lobby and bar area. The contrast between the texture of epoxy terrazzo and the dark grey matt finish of vebrores PU SL HD delivered a striking look that not only complemented the building perfectly, but also created a welcoming, calming atmosphere.
