TECHNOLOGY DRIVEN CONTACTLESS EXPERIENCE

CLEANING AND SANITATION EVERYWHERE

Our team implements additional precautionary and sanitization standards across the entire property, under the guidance and information of the Greek Health Authorities and the Greek government requirements on COVID-19. We have increased the frequency of property cleaning and disinfecting using eco-friendly certified products and giving extra attention to frequently touched surfaces in public spaces. These stringent measures extend from all guestrooms, to public areas and to back of house spaces. We use new housekeeping chemicals that disinfect and sanitize.

 

TESTING OF STAFF

Our team members are tested against Covid-19 twice per week and have had their covid vaccination.  Health certificates are present, and their temperature is monitored daily. All staff always use PPE.
