A Healthy Stay at Anantaya Resort & Spa Chilaw

Anantaya is dedicated to the health and happiness of both guests and staff as a number one priority and this will never change. Given the recent circumstances, to ensure the safeguarding of everyone that enters the resort - be they customer or employee - there have been some new preventative protocols introduced to an already tight housekeeping programme. Just some of these include: mandatory temperature screening on entry with a temporary ban on walk-in visitors; advanced deep-cleaning of rooms, public areas, and staff areas; hand sanitiser provided in rooms and throughout the resort; seating arrangements to facilitate social distancing; new regulations regarding the preparation and serving of food; and keeping the spa and gym non-operation for the time being. For more details, please enquire with Kenwood Travel.
