Worldwide: Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has announced a partnership with the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) for all 520 member hotels to pursue GBAC STAR accreditation.
SLH has launched its ‘Stay Small, Stay Safe’ initiative, offering enhanced health and detailed safety guidelines across its portfolio.
The partnership with GBAC allows for third-party validation to ensure that hotels have the necessary elevated cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques and work practices in place.
The SLH Quality Assurance Policy will also update its 700-point Mystery Inspection programme checklist to include an additional 136 checkpoints related to health, safety and cleanliness standards.
A ‘Stay Small, Stay Safe’ module will be launched on the SLH website, helping guests and travel advisors make information decisions around the latest updates on border openings, quarantine restrictions, and best practices pertaining to COVID-19 precautions.
“Travellers are yearning for a change of scenery and have now begun to cautiously book their next adventure, and with these new measures, SLH can confidently reassure each guest of a worry-free stay,” said Jean-Francois Ferret, CEO at Small Luxury Hotels of the World. “The ability to be flexible and adapt is crucial at this time, and our intimate member hotels can do so in a thorough and bespoke way. We look forward to welcoming guests back to our outstanding properties warmly and safely.”
