Sailrock Resort COVID-19 Entry & Exit Protocols
We wanted to share our COVID-19 protocols with our guests and hospitality partners, to show our commitment to guest and employee health and safety. We pride ourselves on delivering authentic and memorable experiences with 36 suites & villas on over 770 Acres,we truly have the ideal location for both distancing and togetherness. Sailrock Resort was designed as a low-density and naturally preserved environment, consisting of unique topographies, vegetation, shorelines, and features two beaches, each a mile long. Our guests will remember what life was like when they had the freedom and space to move freely, explore, and have incredible adventures.
We aim to provide our guests with protocols to meet their expectations with regards to COVID-19. Our reopening protocols are focused on enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols while ensuring transparency throughout the guest journey. Our initiative represents a new level of focus and transparency for our industry already built on cleanliness.
