Virus-Reducing Ionized Air is the New Luxe Amenity
Scottsdale Arizona’s Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley features the cutting-edge Plasma Air ionizer system, which—according to independent testing—has been proven to reduce airborne viruses and bacteria, including MS2 bacteriophage, a surrogate for COVID-19.
The Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley made guest safety a top priority ahead of its opening at the end of 2020. Part of the 122-acre, $2 billion luxury mega- development The Palmeraie, the 215-room Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley resort and all 81 of its residential villas is the first property in the brand’s portfolio to boast ionized air through-out.
Owner and developer Five Star Development purchased over a thousand purifying systems from Plasma Air, which—according to a recent independent Spanish study carried out by Tayra and supported by the Spanish Ministry of Defense Biological Laboratory—has been proven to reduce MS2 bacteriophage, a surrogate for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus causing COVID-19), in indoor environments.
