As the lockdown for COVID-19 begins to ease in different parts of the world, Swiss-Belhotel International has rolled out a special initiative ‘WeReassure' to welcome back guests across its hotels and resorts in Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East, Africa and India.

Mr. Gavin M.

A 64-page document has been rolled out to our hotels on the standards of the program and continuous training and auditing is in place to ensure the same.”

A health and safety officer has been appointed at every hotel managed by Swiss-Belhotel International to oversee the cleaning and hygiene standards throughout the property as well as serve as the point of contact to put guests concerns at ease.
