It’s no secret that we are in a lull at the moment. And sometimes a change in self-isolation scenery is the thing you need to get you out of this funk. And while we continue to encourage people to stay home, we still aim to provide resourceful content in case residents want to change up their self-isolation location.
All hotels and resorts listed here should be following physical distancing standards by ensuring that guests are standing at least 2 metres away from each other throughout all areas of the property.
Hand sanitiser dispensers should be placed throughout the resort at guest and colleague entrances as well as high-contact areas such as driveways, reception areas, hotel lobby, restaurant entrances, meeting and convention spaces, elevator landings, pools and salons.
