Virgin Limited Edition's Son Bunyola Estate to reopen
Virgin Limited Edition's Son Bunyola Estate will reopen in July following a shutdown due to Covid-19.
The property will be the first in the collection to reopen and will have a “robust” set of new measures going beyond local government guidelines as Spain eases out of lockdown.
Staff will be tested daily and wear facemasks while medically trained staff are available as part of new safety and hygiene measures.
The luxury group’s managing director Jon Brown said: “We have always remained optimistic that we may be able to open some of our properties at the beginning of July and we are thrilled to be able to announce that Son Bunyola will be the first of our properties to open its doors once again.
“Whilst our properties have been temporarily closed, our teams have been at the forefront of ensuring we are in the best position to welcome back our guests with meticulous new safety and hygiene measures, ensuring they have complete peace of mind and trust in everything we do.”
He added: “Guests can expect to see some slight changes across all of our properties as we ask our staff to wear masks, take daily temperature checks and carry out rigorous cleaning measures, whilst ensuring that in our restaurants and guest areas we are adhering to social distancing guidelines.
“But what’s more important, is that we make these new processes entirely simple and flexible for the guest, depending on their own level of comfort and preferences.
“Whether that is daily housekeeping with the same member of staff, or no housekeeping at all, we remain completely fluid to how our new processes will work.”
The group includes Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands, Ulusaba Private Game Reserve in South Africa, Kasbah Tamadot in Morocco, The Lodge in Verbier, Mahali Mzuri, a tented safari camp in Kenya and Mont Rochelle Hotel in South Africa.
