Travel with us for a well-deserved holiday that is relaxing, inspirational, living up to all your dreams, … and worry-free.
The COVID-19 situation has created worries for people all over the world, including for
you, our guests. We often find ourselves searching the internet for ‘can COVID-19 be
transmitted via …’ or ‘can I go outside and do …’

The C.L.E.A.N. partners are here to remove all your travel worries.

During your stay, you can rest assured that measures are taken to prevent the impact
from COVID-19. From the way your room is kept, your laundry is done, your cocktails
are served, your drivers are transporting you across our beautiful landscapes, … every
step of the way we all follow the C.L.E.A.N. policy.

The C.L.E.A.N. policy offers clear guidance to hospitality partners on how to host guests
in a way that is even safer than before. The protocol is constantly updated so that it
reflects the most current guidance by the World Health Organisation. Our teams are
supported by an innovative partner that creates efficient and eco friendly cleaning and
disinfecting products.

The C.L.E.A.N. partners are excited to welcome you for a magical holiday…
with travel bugs only!
