The Banyan Tree Group partnering with Bureau Veritas to co-develop a proprietary label and set of protocols, the Group is launching the SafeSanctuary Programme, an integrated health and wellbeing programme that incorporates protocols of assurance and wellbeing standards. This will be rolled out progressively from June 2020 throughout all properties.

The SafeSanctuary Seal demonstrates the rigor of Protect, Provide and Prevent, to assure all guests and associates of the Group’s enhanced health and safety measures at all guest touchpoints as they plan, book and stay with us. This programme has over 40 areas of enhanced protocols, including screening procedures, hygiene stations, and redesigned processes throughout the guest and associate experience.

Highlights of the programme include:

Protective assurance protocols 

Rigorous cleaning and distancing protocols will be applied through the guest and associate journey, focusing on high-traffic public areas as well as high-touch areas in-room with EPA-approved and recommended cleaning agents. Appropriate distancing will be encouraged through signage and with ambassadors in public areas such as pools, lobbies, restaurants and other facilities. There will be limited capacity quotas in enclosed areas and for group activities. Guest amenities, linens and bedding are thoroughly steamed and arrive fully protected in-room, ensuring a pristine and comfortable night of sleep.

Providing for Contactless Journeys
Going contactless as much as possible, in-room directories and restaurant menus will be replaced with digital options for convenient access on personal devices. Check-in and check-out processes and experiences such as personal health and fitness classes, cooking sessions or wellbeing consultations, may be conducted in-room to enable a vacation prioritizing privacy.

Preventing through Continuous Education & Training 

All associates are educated continuously on the evolving nature of this health situation, along with guests and surrounding communities. Education and training are fundamental to ongoing success, and the centralized Banyan Tree Management Academy will increase its subject-specific training standards worldwide. Hygiene Managers on each property and key personnel will apply audit technology that allows implementation of the new protocols.

Wellbeing Now and for the Future 

The Group, known for pioneering wellbeing for guests and associates, is rolling out an Organisational Wellbeing index to assess and respond to associates’ wellbeing, as well as a regional Tele-therapy service to help support emotional and mental health. Self-care, mindfulness and resilience modules are already available for both associates and guests.
Within the SafeSanctuary programme, additional global standards will focus on deep rest through sleep, activities emphasizing the connection to Nature, and culinary offerings emphasizing plant-forward menus and ingredient integrity.

Looking Ahead 

Banyan Tree Group’s primary mission is to create sanctuaries to live well, and is dedicating all efforts to ensure a Safe Sanctuary for guests’ return.

Banyan Tree Holdings Limited (“Banyan Tree” or the “Group”) is one of the world’s leading independent, multi-branded hospitality groups. The group’s properties in Maldives include Banyan Tree Angsana Resort & Spa Maldives – Ihuru, Banyan Tree Angsana Resort & Spa Maldives – Velavaru and Banyan Tree Maldives Vabbinfaru.
