Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) May 11, 2012 -- With an impressive 100 years of experience in the commercial shade industry, Academy Inc. has become synonymous with reliability and experience as it relates in the design and manufacturing of beach and resort cabanas as well as other shade structures, specifically tailored for hoteliers and resort owners.
A senior executive of Academy Inc. comments, "A common frustration articulated by restaurant owners as well as hotel and resort operators is that they'd like their establishment to operate in two places at once, or at least have a place where they can expand their single location footprint, accommodating more patrons and generating more business." Cabanas provide this luxury, as they act as an outdoor retreat space. Even if the cabana is across the sands from the main resort or hotel building, implementing its logo on the cabana design reminds vacationers that they are still a part of the luxurious world the main establishment has created.
From chic, crisp and white resort cabanas welcoming guests who seek refuge from the sun to upbeat, colorful and bold beach cabanas at the hottest hotel or resort in town, Academy Inc. tailors cabana designs to fit the establishment's exact needs. The Academy design team can craft logos, lettering or symbols on the cabanas, thereby allowing the structures to act as testaments to the hotel or resort's professionalism and offerings. Additionally, Academy Inc. utilizes Computer Automated Design (CAD) to show the clientele how the finished product will look even before construction begins.
Acting as a showcase its customization skills, Academy's original and innovative Towel Valet is working to clean up messy pool sides and cabana lounge areas across the country. Gone are the days when an unsightly, crumpled towel draws attention away from a serene swimming scene or from a calming retreat. Available in a variety of colors and design options to match the resort's décor, the Towel Valet is an attractive canvas structure with tie-off fabric walls and a pointed triangular roof to house towels for later use.
The Towel Valet is just one proof of Academy Inc.'s ability to tailor its products specifically to the needs of hotel and resort owners. With popular and prestigious clientele such as The Ritz Carlton, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, W Hotels and more, this commercial shade leader has delighted giants in the hospitality field for years. Now is a seasonally sensational time to join the lineup of happy customers, as this upcoming travel season is expected to be a busy one. In her Forbes article, "8 Luxury Travel Trends for Summer 2012," Annie Fitzsimmons discusses the increasing popularity of multi-generational travel when she writes, "Hotels are seeing the same trend of larger family groups traveling together. Emily Snyder, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the Americas with Mandarin Oriental, says they are 'seeing increased lengths of stay and multiple room bookings to accommodate multi-generational travel.'" A relaxing resort cabana or beach cabanas provides refuge for both grandparents shielding themselves from too much of the summer sun's hot rays and little ones who need some quiet time with a refreshing cup of juice.
Statistics also speak to increasing travel. ABC News' Travel page cites Genevieve Shaw Brown's article entitled, "More Vacations in 2012 Despite Economic Uncertainty," which points to Travelocity's annual Traveler Confidence Report. "Fifty-three percent of respondents to the survey...said they plan to travel more in 2012 than in 2011 despite a lack of confidence in the state of the economy. That's an 18 percentage point increase as compared with 2011." With all of these additional guests visiting hotels and resorts alike, cabanas are a "must-have" element for any hospitality company accepting visitors this summer.
