To welcome a more diverse range of guests to a hotel, the spiritual needs of members of all religions need to be considered.
WuduMate specialises in the provision of Muslim ablution appliances and has fifteen years of experience in designing multi-faith facilities. You can increase the appeal of your hotel to Muslim guests by providing improved facilities which cater to their needs. You have the potential at the same time to attract and retain Muslim staff by demonstrating your commitment to an inclusive working environment.
Muslim friendly amenities and services you could offer include having prayer mats and the Quran available as well as information on nearby Mosques and Halal restaurants. A sign in the guests’ rooms indicating the direction of the Ka’ba, an ancient religious site located in the city of Mecca, would be beneficial for their prayers. You could also consider serving Halal food in the hotel. It is important for toilet facilities to include a bidet or a hand-held shower.
Wudu is the Muslim act of ritual ablution before prayer, involving the washing of the face, head, hands, arms, and feet. If space and budget permits, you could provide a multi-faith room or prayer room with accompanying ablution space. One cost-effective and more flexible solution to assist your Muslim guests, staff and visitors with their pre-prayer washing is to make a WuduMate Mobile available for use. By renting this unit to guests, a hotel will quickly recover the purchase cost and soon create a new source of income. The WuduMate Mobile benefits from the following features:
- It is the only wudu appliance to be completely mobile, allowing wudu to be respectfully performed in privacy anywhere
- It is a mobile unit with integral plumbing
- There are no installation costs
- It is lightweight but sturdy with durable wheels, making it easy to wheel around
- An ergonomic chromed steel stool with black cushioned top nestles discreetly in the unit for safe use and easy transportation
- The quality chromed brass tap provides approximately 14 minutes of running water for wudu
The WuduMate Mobile is ideal for use in hotels as it could be placed near a prayer room, taken to a guest’s room if requested, provided if required as part of corporate conference facilities, or situated for convenient use by members of the hotel team.
