In order to prepare for the reopening and to reassure guests, Kaimoo has put in place a stringent set of new health and safety protocols. These measures include increasing the frequency of cleaning, and regular sanitization of guest rooms, restaurants, bars and other high-contact areas.

Guests will check-in at their villas, minimizing the time spent at communal areas, and practice social distancing at the resort. Strict cleaning protocols will ensure the cleanliness of transfer boats. These new procedures are science-driven and will use technology solutions to reduce the impact on the environment.

We have implemented these new measures to reassure our guests that they can have both a relaxing and safe holiday at our properties.
