Dara Hotels Group has launched the “Stay Safe with Dara Hotels” program making rapid antigen covid-19 test mandatory to all properties across Cambodia starting 1st of September 2021.
This mandatory rapid testing will be administered on site at every Dara Hotels portfolio across Cambodia by expert Associates that underwent proper training from the Ministry of Health.
The Dara group – which owns the prestigious Independence Hotel in Sihanoukville, amongst other properties – stated that safety was it’s first concern.
“Given all that we have been through with COVID 19, we want to offer sense of confidence knowing you and others are safe at your chosen Dara property,” says Richard L. Dusome FIH, Dara Hotels Group Managing Director. “The safety and well-being of our guests, our service teams is paramount to us, allowing you to relax and refresh. For this reason, Dara Hotels have taken the extra step of having on-site COVID-19 testing” he added.
The rapid antigen covid-19 test will be available free of charge for guests booking a minimum of 2 nights stay and a nominal charge for a 1-night stay with the following options:
– Self-administered COVID-19 tests using their own rapid test kit. Brands accepted are Abbot, Healgen, Indicaid, Roche and SD Biosensor
– Guests can purchase the rapid test from the hotel for $5.00 at the hotel’s front office and can self-administer with the supervision of the hotel’s certified team member.
– If the guests request that the Hotel trained personnel perform the test, an extra charge of $10.00 for the first guest and $5.00 for subsequent tests for guests staying in the same room.
In the event if someone does test positive, necessary protocols from the Ministry of Health will be followed. Guests can also expect elevated cleanliness standards and hospitality norms including guest and associate face covering requirements, social distancing policies, reduced seating capacity for public spaces, frequent cleaning of high-touch areas, and hand sanitizing stations throughout the hotel.
The group encompasses a portfolio of 8 properties across Cambodia namely Independence Hotel by Dara, Dara Airport City Hotel & Spa, Olympia City Hotel, Toyoko Inn with Dara, The Sixties Serviced Residences, The Elysee Serviced Residences, Jouvence Fitness by Dara, and Jouvence Spa by Dara
