More and more major hotels are choosing the beauty and functionality of artificial grass. An example is Sheraton La Caleta Resort & Spa in Costa Adeje on Tenerife. Royal Grass® partner Ecograss recently installed a stunning lawn of artificial grass of 400 m2 around the hotel pool.
Why artificial grass?
With the development of new, pioneering technologies, Royal Grass® artificial grass has an unrivalled natural look. This makes the artificial turf look just as stylish as natural grass, and also has various other important benefits. Thanks to the little maintenance artificial grass requires, it is the perfect way for hotels to save costs. Furthermore, artificial grass stays beautiful and green all year round, no matter the circumstances.
It’s for good reason that more and more hotels and restaurants have had artificial grass installed the last couple of years. For instance, it is a popular solution for (roof) terraces, solaria, gardens, sports fields and play grounds of hotels. In addition, hotels are increasingly getting artificial turf to create a soft, green and user-friendly lawn around their pools.
The Sheraton in Costa Adeje already had a course for mini golf and a playing field with artificial grass. The hotel was so satisfied with the artificial turf that it had a bigger challenge for Ecograss: to replace the tiles surrounding the pool with artificial grass. The reason was that the paving around the pool went into decline due to the impact of water, chlorine and sunshine.
To give the hotel management the opportunity to compare the decorative and practical characteristics of different Royal Grass® products, Ecograss initially installed a surface of 40 m2 (free of charge) with three different types of artificial grass. After a thorough evaluation of the three types of artificial grass, the hotel chose Royal Grass® Seda.
Royal Grass® Seda has a lively, untamed appearance because the fibres are standing somewhat further apart than usual. The grass also has a pleasant after summer colour and is extremely sturdy and resilient. This means the grass carpet can resist daily intensive use. Furthermore, the artificial turf will not become muddy or discolour due to chlorine, water or sunlight. Finally, the artificial grass dries quickly. The hotel management was highly satisfied with the result and is considering installing Royal Grass® artificial grass also in other areas of the hotel grounds.
