True to the spirit of Aman, the safety and well-being of our communities has always been a priority. As Amanwella prepares to reopen its doors on 15 November, in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic we are taking careful steps and following the various compliance and government mandates to ensure the comfort and security of our guests and employees.
As we continue to deliver the professional, personal and compassionate service that guests at Amanwella are familiar with, we are aware that we need to continually evaluate, update and where necessary, innovate our current operations. We have always prided ourselves on offering guests generosity of space in our secluded seaside location amidst abundant nature and fresh air. In addition to the guidelines outlined below, the resort will continue to operate a low room count with stand-alone suites, as well as promoting our unique private dining experiences with a number of outdoor seating and open-air dining options, as guests readjust to the company of others. The following series of protocols and plans will continue to evolve as the situation changes. We hope the following procedure instils comfort and confidence that the wellbeing of Amanwella guests and staff is our primary focus.
