OUR ENHANCED HYGIENE PRACTICES
We would like you to know that we are doing everything possible to ensure your stay is safe.
We look forward to welcoming you and can assure you that, at Kathisma Bay Villas your health and wellbeing has always been a priority and with the impact of COVID-19 being felt across the globe, we’re in overdrive on the sanitising and cleaning fronts.
We are following protocols as proposed by the Greek Government and taking even further measures which include our staff having their health and temperature checked before they begin each shift, increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of all areas across the entire property and implementing even stricter hand hygiene policies for our team members.
Our commitment to you is to ensure that every possible safety measure is in place so your stay with us sees you benefit from all that a luxury holiday Kathisma Bay Villa-style can deliver.
We are closely monitoring the regular guidance being issued by the Greek Government as well as the World Health Organisation and will continue to educate our teams accordingly in matters which include:
Hand hygiene: Proper and frequent handwashing to help combat the spread of viruses. We all know cleanliness starts with this one simple act and is of vital importance for the health of our employees and that of our guests.
Indoor areas: We use cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean each Villa after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with special attention paid to high-touch items and surfaces. We are also being extra sensitive to guests who do not want housekeeping service during their stay.
Outdoor spaces: We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of outdoor spaces, especially outdoor furniture and sun-lounging area.
Swimming pool: There is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through the water used in pools. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g. with chlorine) of pools should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19. We have always ensured that our pools are properly maintained in order to protect our clients and we will continue to do so.
Should you have any questions or need clarification on any point please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are deeply appreciative of your on-going support of our beautiful property and look forward to welcoming you!
