PARADISE ISLAND — The adults-only, all-inclusive Warwick Paradise Island – Bahamas is set to reopen its doors on July 1 to coincide with the country’s reopening of its borders to international travellers.
In preparation, the resort has implemented its new ‘Warwick Cares Program’, which includes guidelines on cleaning, social interaction and workplace protocols designed to provide peace of mind to both guests and staff.
“At Warwick Hotels and Resorts, our highest priority is the comfort, safety and health of our guests and colleagues and as such, we will be employing the highest standards in cleaning protocols for everyone’s wellbeing, said Benjamin Davis, General Manager of Warwick Paradise Island – Bahamas. “Our entire team is committed to providing the highest level of service our guests have come to expect from our resort. We look forward to welcoming back repeat guests and new visitors to Warwick Paradise Island.”
New safety measures include the following:
- Guests must wear a mask at all times except while consuming food and beverages, sunbathing on a lounge chair or in their rooms
- Anyone arriving at the resort will undergo a temperature screening; bellmen will meet guests with gloves and other appropriate PPE while bell carts will be sanitized between guests
- To minimize gathering around elevators, guests will be assigned rooms on lower floors first, allowing for use of stairs as an alternative
- Enhanced cleaning protocols for guestrooms are in place including a 24-hour waiting period between guests
- Buffet service has been suspended in all restaurants in compliance with local government regulations, while seating arrangements have been revised to allow for physical distancing
- Only four guests will be allowed to use the fitness centre at one time; reservations must be made prior to using to allow for additional sanitizing between visits
- A limited number of guests will be allowed in Amber Spa; reservations are required
- The hot tub will not be in operation
In addition to the Warwick Cares Program, the resort will also adhere to the guidelines detained in the Ministry of Tourism’’s ‘Clean & Pristine, Responding to COVID-19’ program, aimed at all tourism-related, customer-facing entities in The Bahamas.
Prior to the opening, the resort had to complete a self-assessment health and safety plan and submit it to the Ministry. As a result, the resort was approved for pre-certification as COVID-19 compliant, thereby allowing the resort to reopen for bookings. The full certification is pending an inspection by the Ministry.
