Guest Check-in /Check-out Procedure
Under the guidance of the COVID19 Protocols, all guest is required to wear a face mask while on the compound. Furthermore, before being granted entry at the front desk, a body temperature check is required and done by the attending Front Desk agent. Only two persons are allowed entry and each guest must sanitize once their body temperature is within the acceptable range. Notice/safety signs are at each point of entry for all guest/staff. A plexiglass shield has also been installed at the Front Desk so as to create a safe interaction barrier between guest and staff.
Cleaning and sanitation of rooms
Under the guidance and advise of the Ministry of Health and Environment & the Ministry of Tourism, housekeeping services have been reduced to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. As such, services will be available every 3 days.
Upon the checkout of each guest, the rooms will be completely sanitized. (This includes the removal of all linens and the steaming of all curtains/chairs/sofas.) There is a three-hour window before another guest is allowed to use a room. Cooking utensils and wares will only be provided upon request of guest at check-in.
