I have an assignment to open a 200 rooms hotel with 2 F&B outlet but big lobby with a couple of retails shop ( drug-store, gifts shop, tour agency).
Not so much on SOP (this will be phase 2)but from the basic, more on the constructions project side, mainly business plan, the FF&E, all operating equipment cost, Insurance, Licenses, total manpower cost & projected amount($$$)! Never mind about the currency as I will deal with the local developers/construction team. I need to develop this phase 1 first to have an overall estimated cost before moving to phase 2 (preparing the check list, SOP).
Kindly forward a copy of the pre-opening format & guideline reports, of the above (prefer in pdf format) or any others which may related, to my e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Could anyone tell me what is a standard height for these tables in a resort where your markets are predominantly Europeans.
Thanking you in advance.
As an experienced hotel designer, I can confidently tell you that there are actually no "standards" for either.
For the vanity, it depends on the sink type. If it's a bowl or vessel sink, the counter is lower than if it's a drop-in or undermount sink. If it's a semi-recessed sink, the height changes again.
Also, local/municipal building codes will dictate the dimensional requirements for all universal washrooms, and the number of universal suites required in the hotel will also determine the number of universal vanities required. Unfortunately, the universal access dimensions are different everywhere, so you have to find the building codes for the location of the specific hotel you're working on.
For the desk height, you can go two ways; either you design a desk with a specific height and then find a desk chair with a seat height that works with that height, or you do the opposite and design the desk height after you've selected the chair. It's an awful feeling to sit at a desk and have the the actual desk feel like it's right under your chin or right on your lap! You need to make sure that someone can comfortably cross their legs under the desk.
Really, all dimensions in a hotel room are critical, and everything depends on everything else! No easy answers. I strongly suggest you hire an experienced hotel designer who knows all of the details like what you're asking, and also knows details that you may never have thought of. That will allow you to avoid costly mistakes, and will of course save you from thousands of headaches!
In addition, a great interior designer will always pay for herself and then some through cost effective and creative solutions that accomplish the look and feel of the hotel's concept and star rating.
