All our vehicles are equipped with thermometer guns, basic first aid, and sanitation kits. We ensure that deep cleaning and proper disinfection and sanitation are being implemented.


Our housekeeping staff receives proper training on cleaning and sanitizing villas.

Our team follows cleaning practices including new process for hygiene and cleanliness in all common areas, villas, and suites. The housekeeping staff immediately cleans after guests vacate a room. We thoroughly disinfect our villas and common areas using enhanced technologies, including frequent sanitation for high-touch items like remote controls, toilet seats and handles, door and furniture handle, water faucet handles, telephones, in-room control panels, and light switches.

While we are still in a pandemic, our housekeeping services are limited but include daily trash removal and refresh of towels and beds if requested.
