As a valued guest, I wanted to update you personally on the evolving novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and the additional precautions we’re taking in response to this outbreak.

 

The health and safety of our guests and our team members is always our foremost priority.  While the risk of contracting the virus in the local community remains low, we are working with the latest advice from Australian and New Zealand medical authorities, as well as the World Health Organisation (WHO), regarding preventative and precautionary measures.

 

Highest hygiene

 

Let me reassure you that enhanced cleaning and hygiene practices have been implemented in all our hotels, resorts and suites.

 

All common areas, as well as back-of-house, are frequently and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to the most stringent standards, paying special attention to high touch-point areas, such as door handles, switches, counters etc.  We conduct this process hourly.

 

And, of course, all guest rooms continue to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitised regularly, with our usual detailed attention to high touch-points.  These practices include the use of an antibacterial, antimicrobial cleaning product that reduces the risk of harmful viruses, of moulds, fungus, algae and any other possible harmful pathogenic bacteria.

 

Continually monitoring and updating

 

Our properties have documented procedures in place and we stand by ready to support anyone who develops symptoms requiring prompt medical attention, self-isolation and/or quarantine.

 

All of our hotels are working directly with local health authorities to ensure that we are vigilant and fully prepared to take additional preventive measures should circumstances indicate.
