Now, as we adjust to the ‘new normal’ management and local staff have been working hard to double up on these efforts to meet, and even surpass, global expectations for both hygiene and safety. The Centara Complete Care programme has been developed to ensure the protection and wellbeing of both guests and employees, focusing on areas like social distancing, enhanced cleanliness, and increased hygiene protocols. Expect screens at reception, contactless options, mandatory PPE worn by staff, and santisation of sports and spa treatment rooms after each use. For more detail, please enquire.
