How Archipelago is dealing with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As it has always been, the safety and security of our guests and team members remain our utmost priorities. In response to the Novel Coronavirus, we have taken additional measures to ensure the cleaning and hygiene at all our hotels match the highest international standards at all time. Those measures include:

  • Increased frequency of public areas cleaning, including lobby, elevators, door handles, public bathrooms etc.
  • Use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  • Increased deployment of antibacterial hand sanitizers.
  • Implementation of effective response procedures, enabling us to act swiftly, professionally and calmly should we be alerted to a case of Coronavirus at the hotel.
  • Avoidance of handshaking among our staff and during interaction with guests. For the moment all our staff will be using the Sanskrit “Namaste” greeting. We encourage all our guests to adopt this wonderful greeting form.
  • Our teams have been instructed to increase the frequency of washing hands and using hand sanitizers. We advise our guests to do the same.
  • Guests and staff are advised to keep a 1-meter distance when speaking to others.
  • All team members have their temperatures measured when they arrive at work.
  • Any staff with a cough or other symptoms are not permitted to work.
  • Our kitchen staff are all wearing face masks and rubber gloves.
  • While our team members undoubtedly understand the seriousness of the situation, they will carry on with joy and smiles and stay calm, avoiding hysteria at all time.

We thank you for your understanding, support and the continued trust. Please enjoy your stay!
