In addition to hotels, homestays, lodges, souvenir shops, restaurants. and transportation are included in the scheme.

And the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is one of the first hotels to be awarded certification in the Accommodation and Meeting Place category.

In fact, the certification followed a careful inspection of the hotel to evaluate its measures to protect hotel employees and guests from the coronavirus and other contagious diseases.

Moreover, the hotel was the first hotel in the Anantara Hotels and Resorts group to receive the safety and health certification.

Previously, Thailand’s Department of Health and Ministry of Public Health had awarded the hotel a Lodging Facility with High Hygiene and Safety Standards certificate.

To clarify, the programme aims to improve sanitation by using Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved disinfectants to combat COVID-19 and other bacteria in hotels.

And these areas include hotel lobbies, hotel reception areas, fitness centres, swimming pool areas, hotel guest rooms, and meeting and event venues.

In addition, staff use electrostatic spray technology to disinfect surfaces and hotel room cards. Likewise, hand sanitizers are also made available throughout hotels.

“The guidelines are fully compliant with several expert advisories including Ecolab and Diversey, global leaders in delivering excellence in cleaning and hygiene technology,” a spokesman for the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel says.
