The hotel is now the first in the United States to offer Surfacide’s state-of-the-art UV disinfection robots

Orlando, FL. (November, 2021) –  Meliá Orlando Celebration, a sought-after destination hotel for families in the greater Orlando area, has officially launched a partnership with Surfacide, the global leader in UV technology. All 289 guest rooms and indoor public spaces will now be cleaned with Surfacide’s UV disinfection robots, creating a comprehensive infection prevention approach with hospital-grade UV technology that kills 99.99% of dangerous pathogens on hard surfaces and in air.

Surfacide’s proprietary three-tower Helios® System will enhance safety measures and provide a chemical-free added layer of protection for hotel guests and staff. Surfacide robots will be used after each guest checks out or after any staff leaves a room. 

Surfacide’s Helios® System is the only patented, UV-C disinfection solution to use a trio of light emitting robots to kill deadly virus and microorganisms on surfaces and in the air in as little as 5 minutes. Surfacide’s technology has been scientifically validated to inactivate coronavirus—the family of virus that make up SARS-CoV2 and COVID-19. 

“Keeping our guests safe and healthy is our first priority at Meliá Orlando Celebration. We have made some amazing progress in guest safety over the last 18 months with the Stay Safe with Melia program, opening of 10 new Stay Well suites and now the addition of Surfacide, giving our guests the utmost confidence in their vacation experience.”

Antonio Baez, General Manager, Meliá Orlando Celebration.

“We are excited to partner with Meliá Orlando Celebration and make our world-class technology accessible to their guests and staff,” said Surfacide Founder and CEO Gunner Lyslo. “Surfacide is rooted in a decade of expertise in healthcare, and as we continue to navigate our new normal, we are proud to help bring peace of mind to those in the hospitality industry as well.”

The Surfacide partnership adds to the hotel’s recent commitment to health and wellness. The hotel recently launched 10 Stay Well by Delos™ Suites amongst the resort’s 289-rooms. Offering the ultimate well-being travel experience, the suites are in partnership with Delos, a global wellness leader, and are designed to enhance the hotel experience and positively impact guests’ health and happiness.
