Further, the technology is equipped with a high-intensity ultraviolet (UV-C) light that purges the DNA of viruses and bacteria. 

Okada Manila has launched a new 3T campaign called “True Clean. True Safe. True Heart,” which aims to assure guests of clean, safe, and a memorable stay.

Senior vice president of hotel operations at Okada Manila, Ivaylo S. Ivanov, said: “As a future-forward brand, Okada Manila is always at the forefront in implementing advanced technologies to keep the resort a delightful, safe place.  

“These robots are a great addition to our safety team, because they are very efficient. They can cover large public spaces on pre-programmed routes in high-traffic areas, as well as individual rooms and suites. They are fun and even capable of greeting guests.” Ivanov added. 

In addition to this, another type of disinfection robots or the “BJDG-XD100” are also being deployed to eliminate bacteria and viruses through misting or fogging, said the notice. 

The notice said Okada Manila has also invested in electrostatic sprayers, ultraviolet spotlights, disinfection chambers for entrances and thermal scanners to monitor guest’s body temperature upon arrival.  

It added: “The resort’s entrances now have high-end disinfection chambers that sanitise each person who enters the enclosure, effectively removing the threat of possible risks that may be transmitted through close contact. Thermal scanners are also deployed at each entrance to safely monitor each guest’s body temperature upon their arrival.”
