Supply Your Spa Guests with Eco-Friendly Towels https://www.venusgroup.com/supply-your-spa-guests-with-eco-friendly-towels/ https://www.venusgroup.com/supply-your-spa-guests-with-eco-friendly-towels/#respond Sat, 15 Sep 2018 17:00:52 +0000 https://www.venusgroup.com/?p=14436 Wellness retreats can really rake in the cash with patrons being willing to spend as much as $500 per night. How can you ensure that guests are happy with your spa, or even that they choose your services in the first place? Eco-friendly linens may be one of the key elements to success.

Consider some more statistics regarding spa retreats:

  • 72% of people who go on spa retreats do so between 2 and 5 times per year. That gives you the opportunity to create repeat business by giving patrons what they want.
  • Nearly half of millennials (your biggest audience) choose their spas through magazines or websites. So you need buzzwords in both your online and printed marketing. Eco-friendly is perfect for today’s socially conscious world.

Eco-Friendly Linens, Produced Sustainably

Venus Group employs our own Farm 2 Finish™ methods in order to ensure that our high-quality towels and other textiles are both eco-friendly and produced in a sustainable manner. For example:

  • We train farmers to avoid contamination of water supplies while harvesting.
  • We assure farmers of a fair price, fulfilling our social responsibility to a vital global industry.
  • We produce high-quality items that require fewer washes, energy, and labor.

These are just a few of the ways that Venus Group is committed to offering Smart Solutions for a Better World™.

If you want the whole world to see that your spa retreat’s true color is “green”, then give us a call at 800.421.6599. We will be happy to discuss your custom towel needs so that you can provide a comfortable experience with a minimal footprint. You can also get in touch by submitting our online contact form.

3 Textiles Every Medical Facility Needs to Have https://www.venusgroup.com/3-textiles-every-medical-facility-needs-to-have/ https://www.venusgroup.com/3-textiles-every-medical-facility-needs-to-have/#respond Thu, 13 Sep 2018 18:36:03 +0000 https://www.venusgroup.com/?p=14433 Textiles and linens play an important role in medical facilities around the globe. They help keep patients as comfortable as possible while undergoing treatment, and they also add to the sanitary nature of hospitals and other medical operations.

While bed linens, patient gowns, and staff uniforms are of key importance, there are some other unsung heroes of the textile field when it comes to staying comfortable and clean in a hospital. Here are three such products that every hospital needs.

  • Mattress pads – Mattress pads help to preserve the life of mattresses, the most expensive component of a bed. Mattress pads are a great way to make a mattress last for the cleanliness and comfort of your patients.
  • Underpads – Accidents happen at the hospital. An underpad is a great way to save your mattress and even extend the life of your mattress pad. Underpads are sold based on how many ounces of liquid they can absorb.
  • Adult bibs – Adult bibs help to preserve the dignity of patients who struggle to eat and help to keep major stains from ruining a patient’s gown.

The Finest, Long-Lasting Linens and Textiles for Medical Facilities

At Venus Group, we understand that your patients come first. That’s why we are proud to offer clean and comfortable products that provide maximum comfort for your patients while offering you durable fabrics that really stand the test of time. To learn more, contact our textile experts today by calling 800.421.6599. You can also request a quote via our website.

The 5 Places Your Luxury Cruise Ship Needs the Most Indulgent Textiles https://www.venusgroup.com/the-5-places-your-luxury-cruise-ship-needs-the-most-indulgent-textiles/ https://www.venusgroup.com/the-5-places-your-luxury-cruise-ship-needs-the-most-indulgent-textiles/#respond Sat, 08 Sep 2018 17:00:50 +0000 https://www.venusgroup.com/?p=14399 When someone pays for a luxury experience, they have certain expectations, especially regarding the experience they will have. Textiles may not be the first thing a guest thinks of when deciding on a cruise, but they will certainly affect the overall experience and even influence a guest’s online reviews.

Since no one seems to go anywhere anymore without seeing what the Internet has to say about it first, providing the most comfort for your guests is a must. Here are five places to ensure you have the highest quality linens in order to please even the pickiest of guests.

  1. The Pool – Guests go to the pool to relax and enjoy the sun. Don’t let a scratchy towel or one with low absorbency ruin the experience.
  2. The Restaurant – Cloth napkins immediately change a customer’s expectations from ordinary dining to fine dining. You also need staff members with ultra-absorbent bar mops for sweeping up the occasional spill in one swipe.
  3. The Bedroom – The right bed linens can determine how well a guest is able to sleep. Everything from a soft pillow case to comfortable blanket can help rock a patron gently to dreamland.
  4. The Fitness Center – The perfect towel absorbs sweat with one wipe while offering a comfortable feel and not transferring lint to the person.
  5. The Bathroom – From luxurious towels to a plush bathroom that makes your guest feel like he or she is being wrapped up in a warm hug, the bathroom may be the most important place to focus on elegant textiles.

Venus Group – Where Luxury Cruise Lines Buy Their Textiles

At Venus Group, we manufacture the most luxurious textiles and linens using sustainable processes. To outfit your luxury cruise ships with the finest sheets, towels, and more, call us today at 800.421.6599.

Decrease Your Luxury Hotel’s Footprint with Eco-Friendly Linens https://www.venusgroup.com/decrease-your-luxury-hotels-footprint-with-eco-friendly-linens/ https://www.venusgroup.com/decrease-your-luxury-hotels-footprint-with-eco-friendly-linens/#respond Thu, 06 Sep 2018 16:52:55 +0000 https://www.venusgroup.com/?p=14396 Of course, you want your luxury hotel to leave the smallest footprint possible on the environment. Not only are you an environmentally conscious brand, but you also realize that sustainability is in higher demand than ever from the public.

In fact, a nationwide poll that was conducted in 2015 revealed that a sustainable lifestyle is a goal for 83% in the US and that 3 in 5 households have set resolutions in connection with living a “green” lifestyle. That means being able to advertise your luxury hotel as environmentally-friendly can make the difference between someone staying with you versus the luxury hotel on the other side of town.

Venus Group – Where Quality and Sustainability Meet

The only reason you may not already be using sustainably produced linens is because you are having trouble finding ones that are up to the high standards of your guests when it comes to quality and comfort. What sets Venus Group apart from other textile manufacturers in the US is that we offer the best of both worlds. How do we do it?

  • R & D – We put our top minds to work on researching the best varieties of cotton seeds, so we start with the best materials for our products. Then we provide education for the farmers and pay them a fair wage.
  • Cooperative Cotton Cultivation – We provide the high-end seeds to our preferred farmers and train the farmers to get the best yield from those seeds by teaching them to avoid contamination of the fibers during the harvest process.
  • High-Quality Manufacturing – We produce the highest quality textiles in a sustainable way, so you can continue to give your guests comfort and style without having to replace the linens as frequently.

To learn more about the Farm 2 Finish process that we use at Venus Group, call us at 800.421.6599 and find the best sustainable linens for your luxury hotel with the help of our textile experts.

How CIRQ+ Can Help Your Hotel Get Ahead of the Competition (And Stay There) https://www.venusgroup.com/how-cirq-can-help-your-hotel-get-ahead-of-the-competition-and-stay-there/ https://www.venusgroup.com/how-cirq-can-help-your-hotel-get-ahead-of-the-competition-and-stay-there/#respond Tue, 04 Sep 2018 20:30:59 +0000 https://www.venusgroup.com/?p=14064

Venus Group is proud to present CIRQ+, a new technology for the hospitality industry. We’re going to tell you why there is nothing else like it on the market today and why there is no risk when getting in on the ground floor to give yourself a competitive advantage.

The CIRQ+ Advantage

This smart technology is designed to provide convenience for your hotel guests as well as a way for your organization to save money on one of your biggest expenses – energy. How does it work? Your hotel guest connects to the device via an app. This allows your guest to create personal thermostat and lighting preferences. The high-end model of the CIRQ+ even offers wireless charging of mobile devices for additional convenience (although all models come with A/C and USB plugs for wired charging). There are also controls on the device for guests who do not wish to download an app.

Your facility gets the benefits of decreased energy costs as the device will automatically detect the presence of the guest and save energy on lighting, heating, and air while guests are not present. The device monitors room occupancy to ensure guests are always comfortable.

Modular Technology: A Future-Proof Solution

Sounds great, right? Of course, you don’t want to be stuck with an outdated device in a year. That’s why we’ve future-proofed it. CIRQ+ uses modular upgrades so not only can you select the options you want now (like a Bluetooth speaker or wireless charging dock), but you will also have access to any future upgrades made to the unit. Watch the introductory video on YouTube to learn more! Then call Venus Group at 800.421.6599 to fast-forward your hotel into the future, or you can request a free estimate online.

What Your Restaurant Should Look for in a Linen Manufacturer https://www.venusgroup.com/what-your-restaurant-should-look-for-in-a-linen-manufacturer/ https://www.venusgroup.com/what-your-restaurant-should-look-for-in-a-linen-manufacturer/#respond Sun, 02 Sep 2018 17:00:37 +0000 https://www.venusgroup.com/?p=14137 Table linens are a vital part of the hospitality industry. From practical use to aesthetic appeal, your table linens tell your guests a lot about what kind of establishment you are running. Whether you are starting a new business or you are looking to change linen manufacturers, what should you be searching for? Here are four important things:

  • Custom Colors and Sizes – You shouldn’t have to compromise on the linens you need because the manufacturer takes a one size fits all approach to such a diverse business. If you can’t order the sizes and colors you need for your tablecloths and other linens, it’s time to look elsewhere.
  • Quick turnaround on orders – If you don’t have a custom order, it should be ready within a day or two. Must custom orders should be able to be completed in 5-7 business days unless you run a massive company or have a very complicated order.
  • Quality Linens – Everything from the texture of the tablecloths to the weight of the bar towels should both tell your customers they are in a luxury establishment and make things easier on your staff.
  • Competitive Prices – Some companies believe that if they provide a quality product they should automatically charge luxury prices. However, you should still be able to get a competitive price, even when dealing in top quality goods.

Why Choose Venus Group for Your Linen Needs?

The Venus Group is proud to offer high-quality linens at competitive prices to discerning hospitality businesses such as yours. Our manufacturing capabilities on both US coasts allows us to provide a fast turnaround on your order, even if you need custom sizes and colors. To learn more, contact us today at 800.421.6599 or request a quote online.

  2. Luxurious experience – SilkWay sheets provide a luxurious, silky experience for your patrons.
  3. No more cold feet – SilkWay sheets resist shrinkage, so you don’t have to worry about guests with cold feet (unless someone orders the wrong size or your guests are gigantic, that is).
  4. Brilliant, clean look – Since these sheets retain their brilliant whiteness, your guests can see how clean they are.
  5. Long-lasting – Go twice as long between sheet replacement with these sheets that stay looking new.
  6. No more wrinkles – Wrinkle resistant materials also add to the guest experience and help housekeepers to create that perfect look every time.

New Cirq+ platform turns guestrooms into smart rooms https://www.venusgroup.com/new-cirq-platform-turns-guestrooms-into-smart-rooms/ https://www.venusgroup.com/new-cirq-platform-turns-guestrooms-into-smart-rooms/#respond Wed, 29 Aug 2018 20:17:00 +0000 https://www.venusgroup.com/?p=14331

Cirq+ introduces a modular technology platform that delivers an engaging and enhanced guest experience with Internet of Things in-room controls that reduce guestroom energy consumption and lower operational costs. The wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor technology instantly modernizes any hotel room and offers hotels and properties an easy and cost-effective way to deliver guests highly personalized experiences through Big Data analytics and reporting.

“Our platform-as-a-service solution was the result of extensive global research that drove the development of a technology designed to meet the growing challenges of the hospitality industry and the changing needs of guests,” founder and CEO Yani Deros said in a statement.

Cirq+ is a modular platform that includes state-of-the-art energy IoT controls for properties to remotely monitor energy usage and intelligently adjust room temperatures, lighting and outlets based on guest occupancy. This will reduce energy and improve operational efficiencies.

Cirq+ eliminates legacy silo devices such as thermostats, alarm clocks and other one-dimensional products by consolidating multiple in-room services into a single platform: Wireless control of temperature; smart LED light; instant-on alarm clock; Wi-Fi connectivity to HVAC, lighting and outlets (ZigBee, Zwave); thermal occupancy sensors; Bluetooth speakers and Hi-Fi audio; multiple device charging methods; 120V AC and USB 2.1A charging plugs and optional (Qi) wireless charging; hotel services and more.

The solution also provides properties with a retrofit solution that is easy to install and a cost-effective way to deliver a highly personalized guest experience through big data analytics and reporting.

“As technology continues to develop at a relentless pace, it can be difficult for hotels and property owners to keep up with changes, let alone prepare for the future,” Deros said. “Modularity is the core patented innovation of Cirq+. This allows properties to stay current with evolving technology and the needs of guests without undergoing major disruption or investment.”
