Your Health, Safety, and Well-Being
SUNDANCE Apartments & Suites has been working for several weeks to create guidelines & checklists, that will serve to guide operations in the hotels when they reopen post-COVID.
The key elements of the guidance revolve around social distancing and cleaning and hygiene practices. The guidance offered is based on current best practices taken from the World Health Organization, the European Centre of Disease Control, and Greek legislation.
We have examined our client’s journey within the hotel environment, from check-in to check out. Within this journey, we have provided guidance on various control procedures. Our aim is to prevent the spread of infection (POSI) from person to person and also from the hotel environment. We constantly follow revolutionary cleaning and hygiene technologies that provide total confidence to our guests, staff, and collaborators.

Our team is working on the 4 phases to any effective COVID-19 response:
a) During closure/lockdown: to ensure the facility is being well maintained.
b) Pre-opening period: to ensure our operating procedures and systems are updated accordingly.
c) Re-opening property: to develop and implement new infection control arrangements in place.
d) Post-crisis continuation: for on-going verification of standards and certification.

We are developing a Certification Scheme, which will comply all legislative acts and governmental orders, as well as all measures recommended by the National Public Health Organization and the World Health Organization, for the protection against the COVID-19 outbreak, and its high standards of hygiene procedures throughout all, Sundance Apartments & Suites in order to ensure the health and safety of all guests and its staff.

We will update our clients with all actions and procedures, as soon as everything has been decided, taking into consideration Greek and global legislation.
