In all common spaces as well as anywhere else required within the Hotel, we have installed dispensers, as well as special guidance signs about Covid-19 with instructions on safe distance keeping, general hygiene rules and respiratory etiquette.
In our Hotels we have set up a special Management Team, a Covid-19 action plan, to safeguard our facilities and protect the health of our guests and employees. The team provides the staff training and oversees the comprehensive implementation of the health and safety standards, supervises the deep cleaning and disinfection of the rooms as well as the frequent use points in all common areas.
Our Check In process is changing and will be online, while the rest of the Reception Services will be performed with minimum client contact, keeping safe distances and using all necessary personal protection equipment. For this reason, we have also installed a glass divider. Upon entry, a body temperature will be recorded.
We suggest payments are made with credit or debit cards instead of cash as well as sending electronic copies of invoices and receipts.

Our Food Departments are compliant with all the rules of the international ISO22000 and HACCP standards.
The Hot Tubs on 4th floor will operate with some restrictions, as they will need to be cleaned following a tight schedule and using special cleaning agents necessary for disinfection. Special rules are in place for the lounge chairs on the hot tub deck. Temporarily and due to health and safety reasons we will not be offering any massage or spa services.
Safety measures according to NHPO health protocols.
Any suspected infection case will be handled per the mandatory National Health Public Organization health protocol. We are required to keep a file – specifically and bindingly for Covid-19 related usage-of all individuals that stayed in our hotels. The file must contain the following information: Name and Surname, Dates of arrival and departure, nationality, full contact details (address, phone number, e-mail) so that the government health department can trace back any infected cases that are retrospectively identified.
Our Hotels collaborate with a private doctor on retainer, who will be notified in the case of a suspected infection. Any guest that is a suspected case will not have the option ability to refuse the disclosure of his data or informing the doctor. The doctor will be acting upon the instructions of the National Health Public Organization regarding the control of Covid-19, while at the same time they will have possibility of monitoring the suspected case and its close contacts via telemedicine (provision of remote clinical services, via real-time two-way communication between the patient and the healthcare provider). In case the doctor remotely decides to visit in person the patient/guest, then a private visit and a certified Covid19 test will be performed and collected.
In the case of a confirmed Covid-19 infection, the patient/guest stays restricted isolated until transferred following the NHPO guidelines.
