Keeping you safe: Covid-19

Dear Corinthia Guests,

As we navigate through these challenging months, we remain optimistic of an eventual recovery in the communities in which we live and do business. Gradually, and always in line with directives from local authorities, we are planning to reopen or scale back operations in our hotels. We are of course returning to a new order, within timescales dependent on local circumstances and directives, but one for which we are well prepared with protocols focusing on health and hygiene in all aspects of our operation. Most importantly, we will be waiting at the door to welcome you back with warmer and brighter smiles.

I know that my colleagues across so many countries are as enthusiastic as ever to get back to work and welcome you into our hotels.

We have new flexible reservation policies across all our hotels, so please check your individual rate when you are booking.

When you are ready to travel, we are here to welcome you back safely at Corinthia Hotels.


Best wishes,
Simon Naudi
CEO

We are taking tracing very seriously, and will do the utmost to support tracking activity in all our destinations. This includes taking guest and visitor information and checking temperatures as required by local health authorities.

in the event of an active case

If a guest in any of our hotels starts to feel unwell, they will be supported in following guidance in their location, and in contacting the relevant local health authorities. Each of our hotels has a predetermined procedure to follow should an active case be identified. If a case of Covid-19 is confirmed via positive test, or a room has been occupied by a guest with symptoms, the room will be decommissioned until disinfection has been carried out with healthcare grade equipment. All public areas will also be subject to the same stringent procedures should a case be suspected or identified.
