Public Area Access

The management of Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites is taking all the necessary measures to ensure that the hotel is fully compliant with the recommendations of local authorities and that of the World Health Organisation at this time.

Additional preventative measures already implemented include hand sanitisers available on all reception desks, thorough sanitising of all rooms for arriving guests including all high touch surfaces and linens. The cleaning of high touch-point areas within in common areas has also been increased to take place every hour. 


Following the government’s increased restrictions on public facilities, food & beverage venues will now be open for takeaway and/or home delivery only and will no longer be accommodating dine-in guests.  Onsite facilities, such as gyms, indoor pools and spas will also be closed during the period.

Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites is committed to ensuring that the hotel or resort is prepared to take further preventive measures should circumstances indicate.
