Our Readiness to Welcome you Back in 2021
When it comes to the health and safety of our guests and staff, we do not leave anything to chance. In response to Covid-19, we introduced the ‘Safe Hands Pledge’ in spring last year. This pledge is our our comprehensive and constantly evolving strategy to implement stringent safety, hygiene and cleaning protocols across all aspects of our operations. These protocols have met and exceed requirements from both the Sri Lankan authorities as well as the World Health Organisation.
As of 23 January 2021, Sri Lanka has re-opened for international tourists and we are now putting in to place the final component of our Safe Hands Pledge to welcome back guests from across the globe. This includes gaining accreditation from a respected UK consultant specialising in travel safety for Covid-19 compliance. Gaining this accreditation will instil the fullest confidence with our guests and partners who are planning a luxury holiday in Sri Lanka with Taru Villas.
As part of this accreditation process, Dr. Changa Kurukularatne, an infectious disease specialist, visited our properties to host engaging workshop and provide the teams with valuable knowledge and insights.
Dr Changa Kurukularatne explained the science behind how the virus spreads, highlighted important hygiene principles both at work and at home, advice on boosting overall immunity and how specific actions can stop infection within all aspects of our operations. Speaking at the at Taru Villas – The The Long House, Bentota, Dr. Changa Kurukularatne highlighted his partnership with Taru Villas.
‘I have been working closely with Taru Villas as part of their Safe Hands Pledge to make sure that the properties have a solid programme for Covid-19 risk mitigation. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the leadership and the property managers as we prepare to welcome back international guests to Sri Lanka’
All our small boutique hotels and luxury villas have been designed with privacy and seclusion in mind. Along with our Safe Hands Pledge, we could not be better placed to adapt to the ‘new normal’ to ensure that our guests can continue to have safe and memorable holidays.
